We know that keeping your personal information private is very important and we do this responsibly and in accordance with US law.

Providing personal information is not a prerequisite for accessing the Howes & Baum website.

In these cases, you will see that some of the information you are asked to provide is required.

Apart from the information you personally provide to us we may collect navigational information when you browse this site. This is general information like your domain type, IP service provider, browser type and IP address and is presented in the form of overall average use on a daily basis and does not contain personal information about you.

Storage and Security
We have implemented stringent security measures to protect the information we collect on our website.

If you are visiting from outside the USA, your connection will be through, and to, servers located in America. Your orders placed with Howes & Baum will be accepted and fully processed and shipped from the United States unless otherwise notified.

Furthermore, your personal information is not stored or remotely accessible on our website or on servers whose specific function is for the internet. In the event of a possible intrusion to our internet server you can be assured that your personal information and any data relating to yourself personally are not obtainable. The only data stored on our server are general statistics.

We aim to provide the most secure shopping environment possible on the Howes & Baum website. Unfortunately, potential security and privacy issues are inherent in the nature of the internet and no data transmission over the internet can ever be absolutely guaranteed.

We try not to do this intrusively and you can always choose not to receive any further newsletters or promotional material from us by clicking on the appropriate link clearly visible in emails we send.

When a visitor registers to join a mailing list, the information collected is used to communicate with that person directly and to help build a profile using the geographic location, age and any feedback the visitor may wish to provide. We welcome feedback and any comments made are used to improve our services and not for market research nor are stored with the customer's registration details as collective data.
