This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for www.rhythmtraders.com.
This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this web site. It will notify you of the following:
Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/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.
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website:
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
Domestic Orders: Our prices include FREE in-store pick up. For most other orders, we calculate a shipping charge based on the size and weight of the items and your shipping address.
Most orders will ship within 2-3 business days using UPS Ground or USPS Priority Mail. Please allow up to 7 days for certain items and large orders to ship. Expedited shipping options are available on most items. Please call us (503-288-6950) to place an order with expedited shipping. Orders shipping to P.O. Boxes or addresses not serviced by UPS will always ship USPS.
International Orders: There are certain items, including skins and many large or heavy items, that we do not ship internationally (Canada excepted). If your order includes skins or any large and heavy items please contact us before placing your order to see whether we can ship your desired items. All approved international orders will ship USPS Priority Mail International.
**Most countries require customs clearance and may charge you additional fees. You are responsible for all inbound fees such as import duty, customs clearance, inspections, and documentation. It is best to understand import regulations for your country before placing your order. Please allow at least 1 - 2 weeks for orders to clear your country's customs/import offices. The process of clearing customs is different for every country and can take up to 6 weeks for some countries and during some peak times throughout the year.
Domestic Orders: You can easily track your order as soon as it has shipped using the tracking number that you will be automatically e-mailed when the shipping label is generated. You can also see your tracking number by logging into your account and viewing your order history. Your tracking number will be attached to each order in your order history as soon as it has been generated.
International Orders: We will always provide your tracking number and any other information that we have on your shipment, so that you can have the same ability that we do to track your shipment. Tracking numbers for international orders will usually only indicate when the item has left the United States. It is up to the receiving country's postal service to report tracking information back to the US postal service after this point, and they rarely do. Once the shipment has left the United States we recommend that you contact your country's postal service or customs/import authorities for the latest information on your shipment.
You can put in your tracking number to the official shipping company tracking links here.
