The Internet And Your Right To Privacy
The Internet is a truly wondrous place, with seemingly unlimited access
to any information desired. I do not feel that this should include your personal
information! Nothing irks me more than a Salesperson calling me at home, or an
unsolicited email appearing in my In-box. Here at The Whistle Shop we will always assume
that you feel the same way.
Your Personal Information:
I feel that your personal information is yours alone - you're the only one that has the
right to decide who has access to it. We will never pass any of your personal
information on to other companies or individuals without your consent! We sell
musical instruments here, not email addresses.
I consider unsolicited email to be an invasion of privacy (the "Junk Sender's
List" in my personal email program is almost as long as the "Address Book"
). While I won't say that The Whistle Shop will never send an unsolicited email, I will
say that the only time that we would do an emailing to all of our customers at once is
under very special circumstances. I would hope that on that rare
occasion you wouldn't mind just deleting the email if it wasn't of interest to you. We
have only done one such emailing since we opened our online store on April 1st, 1999.
I feel that the Secure Server that we use in our Shopping Cart is an extremely safe way to
transfer your personal information to us. I researched security on the Internet quite
extensively before setting up our Shopping Cart, and I firmly believe that - with a proper
Secure Server (like we have for our Shopping Cart) - the Internet is probably one of the safest ways to transmit credit card
and other personal information (probably even safer than the phone in these days of
telephone listening devices and such).
Customer satisfaction is always my number one goal - I would
certainly like to hear about it if you're ever not completely satisfied when
dealing with us. Feel free to contact me via
