What We Collect:
IDFP will collect information from you via your comments (see publicly posted information), any ordering forms we may institute, from information sent in your emails to our staff and via PayPal interactions. Information collected about you in the conduction of business transactions is considered “Personally Identifiable Information.” We must collect a basic set of this before we can bill you for goods, or distribute any design or illustrative services. Once we have gathered Personally Identifiable Information from you, you are no longer anonymous to us and will be protected as a valued customer.
We consider a basic package of Personally Identifiable Information to include your: Legal Name, Primary Email, Billing Address, Shipping Address, PayPal Email (if different from your primary email), A Contact Phone Number, and Any Relevant Information About The Service or Product You Are Ordering. We maintain order records of all of our dealings and will retain a history on all of your previous purchases and online commissions.
We may also collect “Anonymous Information” such as your IP address, the type of browser you use, the pages on our Sites that you have visited, and the advertisements that you have clicked on. Your Personally Identifiable Information can be linked to your Anonymous Information once it is provided.
You have the ability and the right to disable cookies in your browser’s settings, but as a site running off a WordPress blog template, not allowing these cookies may impede the function of our site rendering our information and services unavailable to you. For more information please review the documentations over at WordPress.org.
While we have some products specifically targeted at children; we do not intend that children will use our Site(s). We do not solicit or knowingly collect information from children under 13 years old; nor will we intentionally retain Personally Identifiable Information about any client revealed to be a minor under 13 years of age. We encourage all Parents to supervise any use of the internet by their children and happily hope to provide any services desired to the Legal Guardian of any interested minor.

How We Share Information:
Except as noted below, IDFP does not share your Personally Identifiable Information with third parties unless you give us your permission or we need to share such information in order to provide products or services you have requested. For example, we use third parties to help with some of the products and services available on our site, such as processing payments and shipping orders.

Whenever we do supply Personally Identifiable Information to these third parties, we require them to use it only for what they are helping us with.
