Privacy Policy

Welcome to Our Friends and Customers

This Privacy Policy describes how and when Lee & Pearl collects, uses, and shares information when you purchase an item from us, contact us, join our mailing list, or otherwise use our services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that we do not own or control. You can reference the Privacy Policy of such entities to learn more about their privacy practices.

Information We Collect

Lee & Pearl is an internet based company. Our customer list and mailing list are essential to our business. We collect information under two circumstances: when you join our mailing list and when you order a product from us, whether paid or free.

If you are on our mailing list we collect the information required to contact you. We contact our subscribers via e-mail, direct mail, and third party targeted contact (yes, that would be ads). We collect the information required to contact you via these channels. You choose which of these channels you would like to make available to us, and we collect the information relevant to the channels you choose. Our most important channel is e-mail. You must at least choose this channel if you wish to receive our email newsletters, product updates, and other information.

We also want to know if you would ever like to receive an actual piece of mail from us, or see a targeted online ad from us. We are a small firm and we are interested in exploring such valuable channels for reaching our most dedicated customers. Please let us know if you would like to be on our direct mail or targeted online contact channels. In this case we will collect and retain information required to contact you via direct mail and/or targeted online marketing.

If you are a customer, we collect the information required to fulfill your order. Currently we sell exclusively through third party sales platforms, though we do not preclude the option of offering product directly to our customers at a future date. When you order from us via a third party such as Etsy, you must provide us with certain information — which you authorized Etsy to provide us — such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide us with additional personal information — for a custom order of fabric, for example — if you contact us directly.

Why We Need Your Information and How We Use It

We rely on several legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about our customers is important to our business. We share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Data Retention

We retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with our services and customer support and as described in our Privacy Policy. However, we may also be required to retain this information to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce our agreements. We generally keep your data for the following time period: five (5) years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

We may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, we may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If we are deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, we rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Dropbox is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. We describe these rights below:

How to Contact Us

For purposes of EU data protection law, we — Lee & Pearl, LLC — are the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, contact us via email at Alternately, contact us by mail at: Lee & Pearl, LLC, 419 S Lee St, Alexandria VA 22314.

Thank you!
