Privacy and Security Policies

Privacy Notice:

 Kathryn Kienle Jewelry asks customers for personal data when placing an order, such as name, address, telephone number, credit-card information, and E-mail address. I use this data only for the purpose of filling an order, or communicating with the customer about alterations to the item or the status of an order. This customer information is private and confidential, and I will not disclose your data to third parties without your express permission or as required by law. I will not distribute customer information to be used in mailing lists, surveys, or any other purpose other than what is required to perform our services to the client. Kathryn Kienle Jewelry is committed to safeguarding the privacy of my customers’ personal data.

I do not keep any of your credit card information.  When that is collected by this website, it is securely transmitted to the payment processing system you selected and not saved on any server used by Kathryn Kienle Jewelry beyond that.

If you have any concerns about how your information is being used or questions about my Privacy Policy, please feel free to contact me.

 Security Notice:

I implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. Your payment and personal information is as safe as we can make it. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, the industry standard and among the best software available today for secure commerce transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address, so that it cannot be read.


My website does use cookies.  Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. I do not use any of this information to help me understand or track your preferences based on previous or current site activity; I also do not do any aggregation of this information. We value your privacy as we value our own.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings.  Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you may not have access to many features that make your site experience more efficient and some services may not function properly.


The Kathryn Kienle Jewelry website will send emails to you about your order but otherwise will not use your email information.

I do maintain an email distribution list outside of this website.  Those emails are only sent to announce upcoming art fairs or to update you when new items are added to the website.  Emails will be kept to a minimal (about once a month).  I will not add you to this list unless you request it.  If you would like to be removed from my email list please contact me at to request removal from my list.  Be assured that my email list is for my use only and is not shared with any other party.
