Privacy & Security
The privacy of customer information is a matter that is taken very seriously at Peruvian Connection® LLC.
When you place an order at www.peruvianconnection.com, or any of the Peruvian Connection® web properties, we collect your name, mailing address, phone number and credit card information for use in processing your order. We also collect your e-mail address when you order from our website so that we can send you any necessary e-mail messages related to your order, such as an order confirmation or order status.
We do not sell or rent your e-mail address or phone number to any third parties for their marketing purposes. If you place an order with us, your name and mailing address may be rented or exchanged with carefully screened catalog companies whose products may be of interest to you. If you would prefer not to receive such mailings, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 1-800-221-8520. Please provide your exact name, address and e-mail address.
We maintain a record of your orders should we, or you, ever need it for reference. You may request a record of the information stored on your account at any time by calling Peruvian Connection® Customer Service and providing the appropriate authentication of identity.
If you request a catalog from our website or sign-up for an e-mail subscription, we offer the option of receiving our special e-mail promotions and notices. If at any time you no longer wish to receive our catalogs, emails and/or promotions, simply contact us at email@example.com or by phone at 1-800-221-8520. For these requests, we ask that you include your current e-mail address and full name. You may also change your contact preferences or account information at any time by logging into the Account section of this site. Every marketing e-mail you receive from Peruvian Connection® will have an Unsubscribe link at the bottom that will remove you from Peruvian Connection® marketing e-mail messages.
