Our Commitment To Your Privacy

We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone. (However, please note information would be disclosed when legally required to do so at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation, to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our Website and applicable laws or to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our Website.)

We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your order as noted below:

  • We will ship via USPS Mail or FedEx/UPS Ground, whichever will ensure prompt and efficient shipment. All of these carriers provide tracking services which provide a tracking number that is assigned to your shipment to assist you in tracking your package as it travels. Your email address is used for this purpose.

  • We use reputable merchant bankcard services that handle our credit card transactions. Once we receive authorization from the banking server, we begin processing your order. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond filling your order.
  • Order Information

    When you place an order with us, we ask you to provide your name, address, email address, phone number and credit card information. This information is used to process your order. The credit card information we collect is for billing purposes only. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you.

    At this time, we are not utilizing third party offers through our site. If that changes, we will post that information on this page.

    Our Commitment To The Security of Your Data

    We take precautions to protect your information. Ideal Entertaining & Gifts utilizes Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for managing the security of our online transactions. SSL works by using a private key to encrypt data that's transferred over the SSL connection between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between web server and browser remains private and secure. SSL is an industry standard used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers. This is verified by the "https" at the beginning of the address on the cart page and through the billing pages. In addition, a padlock icon is displayed either at the top or bottom of the page.


    For the convenience of our customers, our shopping cart uses cookies to store items the customer has placed in their cart. This cookie allows our store to keep a record of the items in the cart if the customer leaves the site and returns within two weeks. The customer can then complete the checkout process without having to add the items to the cart again. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.
