Privacy & Security
Papyrus collects information online primarily to provide our visitors with a more relevant experience on our web site. When doing so, we will make every reasonable effort to avoid excessive or irrelevant collection of data.
Papyrus will take reasonable physical, electronic and managerial measures to safeguard and secure any information you provide to us (e.g., data will be stored in protected databases on secured servers with restricted access).
Papyrus will honor its customers’ requests to not receive future marketing communications from Papyrus
Generally, you may visit the Papyrus web site without revealing personal information about yourself. When you visit our web site, however, we may track your Internet domain address, any search engine you may have used to locate the web site, and we may track certain navigational information about where you go on our web site. This information enables us to determine which areas of the web site are most frequently visited and helps us tailor the web site to the needs and interests of our online visitors.
You will remain anonymous unless you specifically request otherwise. When you purchase a product online, we ask for your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, and your credit card number to complete your order. In some cases, we may use this information to personalize your future experience with Papyrus. For example, if your zip code indicates you live near one of our stores, we may notify you about an upcoming event (such as a sale or workshop). If you do not wish to be contacted, please let us know and we will remove your name from our email list immediately (see Opt-Out Procedures below).
Disclosure of Personal Information
Papyrus may disclose specific personal information based on a good-faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to comply with or conform to the law (subpoenas, warrants) or that such disclosure is necessary to protect the users of the web site or the public.
Further, in the event Papyrus sells or transfers a particular portion of its business assets, consumer information may be one of the business assets transferred as part of the transaction. If substantially all of the assets of Papyrus are acquired, consumer information may be transferred as part of the acquisition.
How we Communicate with You
Papyrus may send communications to you on the basis of the information you provide to us through email or postal mail. You may always specifically request not to be contacted (see Opt-Out Procedures below).

If you are visiting this web site from a location outside the United States, your connection will be through and to servers located in the United States. Any information you provide during your visit will be processed and maintained on our web server and other internal systems located within the United States.
We use state-of-the-art software to encrypt your credit card numbers and personal information automatically while they are in transit over the Internet, preventing a third party from viewing this information. The instant you reach our checkout page, your browser should indicate that you have entered our secure shopping zone. Each web browser offers a different security indicator—please refer to your browser’s help section to learn more.

An internal security system, known as a firewall, protects information about our customers from being viewed by a third party. Information access is restricted within our offices as well. Personal information collected about our customers is only viewable by employees who need the information to perform a specific job (such as a billing clerk or customer service representative), and the personal information is protected by a random password.
Unfortunately, however, due to the nature of the Internet the privacy and security of every transmission over the Internet cannot be absolutely guaranteed. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the privacy and security of the information you transmit to our web site.
