Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through Artbeads' public product reviews, questions & answers, or social media pages, this information may be collected and used by others.

Artbeads encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from Artbeads so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. Artbeads is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the Artbeads website.

Artbeads may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

Automatically Collected Information

Information about your computer hardware and software may be automatically collected by Artbeads. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Artbeads website.

Use of Cookies

The Artbeads website may also use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. Artbeads uses cookies to collect information around abandoned shopping carts. A cart is considered abandoned within one hour of inactivity/lack of purchase. Once the cart is considered abandoned, an SMS message will be sent as a reminder. 

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Artbeads pages, or register with Artbeads site or services, a cookie helps Artbeads to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Artbeads website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Artbeads features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Artbeads services or websites you visit.

Third-Party Service Providers

Artbeads may also engage third party advertising companies to advertise products or services to you online. These companies may employ cookies, single pixel gifs or web beacons to measure advertising effectiveness. They may also use this technology to serve specialized or relevant advertising content and/or recommendations to you on our site or on a third party's website. Note that any information that these third parties collect via any tracking method is completely anonymous and does not contain any personally identifiable information. If you would like to learn more about network advertisers, including how to opt-out of individual company's ads, please click here.

Artbeads may also engage third party service providers to provide additional functionality on our website. These third parties may collect and/or store data elements for use in providing their services, including, but not limited to, your social media identifier, IP address, browser type, referring/exit pages, and operating system. These data elements will be used solely for the purposes of providing their services and will not be shared with other companies or used for any other purpose.

Security of your Personal Information

Artbeads secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Artbeads uses SSL Protocol for this purpose.

When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to Terms

Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

Please read this carefully. It affects your rights. Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of Artbeads’ services will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than court.

This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted, and expressly includes claims brought under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. § 227 et seq., or any other statute, regulation, or legal or equitable theory. You and Artbeads hereby agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. 1, et seq. (“FAA”) applies to this agreement to arbitrate, and governs all questions of whether a dispute is subject to arbitration. Unless you and we agree otherwise in writing, arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association’s Consumer Arbitration Rules in effect at the time of filing of the arbitration (the “AAA’s Rules”). However, just as a court would, the arbitrator or arbitrators must honor the terms and limitations in this Agreement, and can award damages and relief (including any attorneys’ fees) authorized by law and/or the AAA’s Rules. The arbitration decision and award is final and binding, with some exceptions under the FAA, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND ARTBEADS ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY AND THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE PROCEEDING.

THIS AGREEMENT DOES NOT ALLOW FOR CLASS ARBITRATIONS EVEN IF THE PROCEDURES OR RULES OF THE AAA WOULD. RATHER, YOU AND WE ARE ONLY ENTITLED TO PURSUE ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL, BILATERAL BASIS. FURTHER, AND UNLESS YOU AND ARTBEADS AGREE OTHERWISE IN WRITING, THE ARBITRATOR(S) MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE INDIVIDUAL PARTY’S CLAIMS WITH ANY OTHER PARTY’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR COLLECTIVE PROCEEDING.

You and Artbeads are each responsible for our respective costs relating to counsel, experts, and witnesses, as well as any other costs relating to the arbitration. Artbeads, however, will pay for the arbitration administrative or filing fees, including the arbitrator and/or other AAA case management fees, for any claim seeking $75,000 or less, unless the claim is determined by the arbitrator to be frivolous. Otherwise, the AAA’s Rules regarding costs and payment apply.

This agreement to arbitrate does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf.

If any term of this Section (Arbitration and Class Action Waiveris to any extent illegal, otherwise invalid, or incapable of being enforced, such term shall be excluded to the extent of such invalidity or unenforceability; all other terms hereof shall remain in full force and effect; and, to the extent permitted and possible, the invalid or unenforceable term shall be deemed replaced by a term that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of such invalid or unenforceable term. If application of this Severability provision should materially and adversely affect the economic substance of the transactions contemplated hereby, the Party adversely impacted shall be entitled to compensation for such adverse impact, provided the reason for the invalidity or unenforceability of a term is not due to serious misconduct by the Party seeking such compensation.

Errors & Omissions

It is quite rare, but it does sometimes happen that there is an error, omission, or ambiguity in a published sale, description, or price. When this happens we reserve the right to correct the error or to clarify the description. If you have ordered the item before the correction we may cancel the order and issue you a refund or may make other reasonable adjustments. You may also return the item for a full refund.

Disconnecting your Artbeads Account from Third-Party Websites

You will be able to connect your Artbeads account to third party accounts. BY CONNECTING YOUR ARTBEADS ACCOUNT TO YOUR THIRD PARTY ACCOUNT, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU ARE CONSENTING TO THE CONTINUOUS RELEASE OF INFORMATION ABOUT YOU TO OTHERS (IN ACCORDANCE WITH YOUR PRIVACY SETTINGS ON THOSE THIRD PARTY SITES). IF YOU DO NOT WANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOU, INCLUDING PERSONALLY IDENTIFYING INFORMATION, TO BE SHARED INTHIS MANNER, DO NOT USE THE THIS FEATURE. You may disconnect your account from a third party account at any time. Users may disconnect their social media accounts by contacting us via email, chat, or telephone.
