How We Protect Your Information
The parts of this website that require security are the Registrations, the Customer Login, and the Cart (including payments, etc.). Essentially, any time you see HTTPS in the URL instead of HTTP, that's where security is employed. We use Security Sockets Layer (you can read about SSL here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Sockets_Layer)... to encrypt sensitive information such as billing and address specifics. We do not store any credit card information, just the customer registration information.
Joyful Spirit Gifts does not sell your personal information to third parties. We will not disclose your personal information to any third party unless, (i) such disclosure is otherwise revealed to you when you submit your information; (ii) it is required by law or by an order of a competent court; (iii) if the rights or property of Joyful Spirit Gifts are in jeopardy; or (iv) if the safety of users of the Website or the general public are in jeopardy.

Joyful Spirit, LLC, will not represent, warrant or guarantee that personal information will be protected against misuse, loss or modification, nor do such parties accept liability for the security of a user’s personal information submitted on or in connection with the Website.
