important, and we absolutely respect that. We will NEVER
sell, trade, or give away your personal information, unless required by law. Period.
All physical information is stored in a locked facility accessible only by Dreaming Gates staff,
and online information is protected with reasonable measures of security given the limitations of
ever-changing technology and capital.
Customers may remove themselves from the mailing list, or update
their information, at any time and at no cost by sending us an email, fax, or letter.
Cookies, for cart only: Our shopping cart will set a cookie when you add to your cart. What type? Only the item you just added. (Not your name, address, phone number, or college roommate's favorite color.)
Later the shopping cart reads that cookie so you can check out.
We will never create any other kind, nor will we read cookies
other than ours. Not only is that behavior in very poor taste, but
we consider it an invasion of privacy.
Fraud Policy: We actively prosecute
fraudulent purchases and activities to the fullest extent of the Law.
This includes involving local, state, and federal authories when necessary.
N.B.: Sending an order in someone else's name without their consent is fraud. Intentionally bouncing
a check, or making an order without intention of payment, is also fraud. We prosecute both.
Anti-Spam Policy (a.k.a. "We Burn
Spam"): We hate Spam, and we won't send
it. Ever. In fact, we go out of our way to stop unsolicited
mailings, and we actively penalize those who Spam us (below).
Our only mailings are as follows: emails concerning specific orders made, and mailing list newsletters ONLY for those who have actively and knowingly joined the list.
A list of anti-spam sites is available on our Extras page.
Sending us Spam: Not a good idea. We routinely report
"Spammers," who may be penalized in accordance
with the Electronic Communications Act of Virginia. (We welcome hearing about relevant products and services. But we don't need to lose weight,
take a vacation, or see scantily-clad persons in our Inbox. You know what we mean!)
Just in case, we define Spam as any communication that is
unsolicited, plus grossly irrelevant to our business, intentiontally misleading,
and/or sent en masse. Lastly, sending ads through our
order-link, or otherwise trying to trick us, is still Spam.
Offenders will be prosecuted under Virginia law. Period.
History: Using their personal savings,
two dedicated Craft practitioners founded Dreaming Gates in mid-1996 in Stafford, VA.
Six months later, together, they opened the first retail outlet in the French Market of
New Orleans, but soon shifted to e-commerce. The first DG website was located at
www.staffnet.com/drmgate. Due to problems with that ISP, however, they soon switched to www.1bigred.com/dreaminggates, using a URL redirection service in order to achieve the address
dreaminggates.i.am. (That redirection service has since gone under.)
On January 17, 2000, they purchased DreamingGates.com, and remain there today.
