Policies

All policies are firm and final. Failure to adhere to my policies is on your head and I take no liability or action for it. I will be, in no way, held responsible for failure to adhere to the policies posted below. Users who break these policies may be blocked.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS, GENERAL BLOG POLICIES, AND CODE OF CONDUCT

What I post on my site and talk about in person is my personal practice. It is, in no way, representative of all witches, pagans, or other assorted practitioners.

This is a “safe blog”. This means this is a safe space for every and all kinds of religions and spirituality, sexuality, genders, races, transfolk, otherkin, disabled, and other minorities. I do NOT tolerate hatred, slurs, or offensive comments. Cussing and use of swear words are acceptable. Slurs are not and will NOT be tolerated. Let’s be kind to one another.

You are welcome to your opinion. You are welcome to voice your opinion. So is everyone else. No one, however, has to listen to, agree with, or deal with your opinions, especially if they’re offensive. Discussion and debate is fine so long as it doesn’t turn into a flame war. I am not liable for readers’ and visitors’ commentary.

I have the right to change, edit, alter, or delete my posts at any given time without notice for any reason at all. If something has been mis-credited, let me know and I’ll fix it or take the post down. I’m not liable for errors or omission on this blog. Likewise, I am not liable for content accessed through outside links to other websites. Please read any terms and conditions set by those websites for details.

My site is intended for those of legal age, which in the Unite’d States is 18 years old.

All content on this blog is copyrighted to me, Samantha L.Davidson also known as This Crooked Crown, unless otherwise noted.

 

PRIVACY POLICIES

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy, WordPress, or any third party services you access through these sites. You can reference each individual website’s privacy policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for readings or custom orders), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support; when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list; if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Data may collected from users by Google Analytics, Etsy, and similar analytical sources. Data may also be collected when providing commentary such as an email address. Data may further be collected by Google Adsense. Additional information may be gathered that is not described here.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

– Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.

– WordPress. I share information with WordPress as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the WordPress Policy and WordPress Terms of Use.

– Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.

– Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Outside of this, I do not sell or share this information with anyone.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 5 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

– Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.

– Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.

– Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

– Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
How to Contact Me

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Samantha L. Davidson, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at contact@thiscrookedcrown.com.

 

GENERAL SHOP POLICIES

I cannot be held liable for any results you achieve or do not achieve from the use or misuse of my products or any products offered by This Crooked Crown Witchery and Curiosities. None of my products are to be used as a substitute for medical, legal, or other advice of any kind. These products are not intended to create miracles by themselves. If one does, wonderful, but don’t expect Harry Potter results. Spells are not instant solutions and only swing things in your favor. Spells and divination are not cures; I am not liable in any way for the any decisions, actions, or events caused by or are influenced by the purchase. I cannot and do not guarantee results. Spells take time. Be patient and your results will come through.

I am legally bound to say that all divination, magically enhanced, and.spell kits are curios only. Similarly, user experience varies, even with the herbal products, given an individual’s situation. I cannot and will not guarantee results of spells, rituals, divination, magically enhanced objects, or spell kits.

I cannot divine or cast spells for or on anyone under legal age (18 in the United States). Likewise, I cannot sell herbal products to anyone under legal age.

My products are intended for external use only. DO NOT INGEST OR TAKE INTERNALLY. My products are not for internal human consumption. Avoid contact with eyes, organs, mucous, genital, and sensitive areas. For best results test the product on a small patch of skin and wait 24-48 hours for reactions before continuing use. Discontinue use if allergic reaction does occur and seek medical assistance if necessary. I cannot be held responsible for allergic reactions or skin reactions that come from the use or misuse of my products.

Please, for safety’s sake, keep herbal products of reach of children and animals. Do not use while pregnant or breastfeeding. Do not use when driving, operating machinery, or making important decisions. While my products are organic in nature and unlikely to cause issue or damage, the chance is still there. Please use responsibly. All perishable items should be used within two years of purchase. Keep perishable items in a cool, dark, dry place out of reach of children and animals.

If you need medical advice, please seek out a physician or licensed herbalist. I will not offer medical or herbal advice.

ALL requests will be considered. I have the right to refuse a request at any given time. Upon a chance that payment has occurred after the refusal is given, a documented refund will be issued. I am under NO obligation to take your case.

 

READING POLICY

You may ask up to ten questions or ten minutes after each reading free of charge. After this amount, a nominal consultation fee of $5 every 15 minutes or 5 questions will be added.

Readings are performed online or in-person only. No phone readings are performed. In-person readings may only take place at public places lke coffee houses, restaraunts, new age shops, or libraries. In-person readings may also occur at public or private group events. This is for your safety and mine.

Children and pets are allowed for in-person readings at this time.

Readings are not performed on major holidays, including Halloween, Christmas, Christmas Eve, Thanksgiving, New Years’ Eve, and New Years’ Day. Readings may or may not take place during full moons, new moons, equinoxes, and/or solstices.

If you’ve requested an in-person reading but need to cancel, please notify me as soon as possible. No fee will be charged for cancelled meetings. No-call, no-show for meetings will be charged a 5% price increase during the next requested meeting to compenstate for time lost previously.

Emergency or last minute appointments incur a 5% price increase.

 

PAYMENT AND PURCHASE POLICY

ALL purchases MUST be made either in person or online in full. Cash, paypal, debit, or credit cards are accepted. All Etsy and Storenvy payments accepted. No personal or business checks, money orders accepted. Payments will not be taken by phone.

Barters and trades are by a case-by-case basis but are welcome!

A 10% of the total bill late fee is added to any bill not paid within 30 days of order placement. A 25% of the total bill is added to any bill not paid within 90 days of order placement. After 90 days, the bill will be contested and/or sent to collection.

To cancel an order, you must contact me within 24 hours of order replacement. You may cancel an order or any reason. There are no cancellation fees.

 

RETURN AND REFUND POLICY

All sales are final. No exceptions and no refunds.

Why? I sell primarily items that are personalize to you and I wouldn’t be able to resell the item if I took it as a refund. With readings and spells, the products are even more individualized and custom. If you’re unhappy with your purchase, I’ll gladly work with you as best I can but I cannot and will not offer a refund.

Contact me if your purchase is received as damaged. If product is damaged, a replacement, exchange, or full refund may be offered.

 

SHIPPING POLICY

I try to send your packages out the next day but sometimes it goes out the day after, depending on weather and the time of the day when your purchase is ready to embark on it’s journey to you. Unless otherwise noted or custom work, all items are shipped out within forty-eight hours.

All packaging materials are recycled as much as possible. All bubble wrap, packing peanuts, and so on are completely recycled. I collect it from friends and family and pass it on. I ship almost exclusively out of the USPS.

I’ll ship any item internationally unless the import or export of such items are banned by law.

Please note that by purchasing an item you’re agreeing to accept and pay all custom or import fees so keep that in mind when placing an order.

 

CONTACT AND COMMUNICATION POLICY

Email is, by far, the best way to get a hold of me. Please use it wisely. Spam or emails I view as spam are deleted. I endeavor to reply to all emails in 72 hours, however, this does not always happen. Email is contact@thiscrookedcrown.com

Absolutely NO phone calls will be accepted.
