If you purchase a product or service from us, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on our order form. You must provide contact information (such as name, email, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date).
Uses of Information
We use information collected during the ordering process for billing purposes, to contact you if there is a problem with your order, and shipping. We also use this information for our own marketing purposes.
Special Offers and Updates
We will occasionally send you information on site updates, promotions, and show dates. You can sign up for these emails using the "Join the Edwards Minerals mailing list" form on the right side of the page. You will also be added to our mailing list if you purchase a product from us.
Out of respect for your privacy, we present the option not to receive these types of communications. Please see the “Choice and Opt-out.”
Based upon the personally identifiable information you provide us, we will communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account. We will communicate with you by email or telephone, in accordance with your wishes.
We store information that we collect through cookies, log files, and our shopping cart to create a “profile” of your preferences. We tie your personally identifiable information, and your purchasing history, to information in the profile, in order to provide tailored promotions and marketing offers and to improve the content of the site for you.
We do not share your profile with other third parties except for that information required to process credit card and other orders.
Personally identifiable information:
We share personally identifiable information with third parties. We use an outside shipping company to fulfill orders, and a credit card processing company to bill you for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any other purposes.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site.
We provide you the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ of having your personally identifiable information used for certain purposes when we ask for this information. For example, if you purchase a product but do not wish to receive any additional marketing material from us, you can indicate your preference on our order form.
If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each newsletter or communication or by emailing us at .

We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.
We may use session ID cookies. A session ID cookie expires when you close you browser.
If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some areas of our site, such as our shopping cart, may be limited. Cookies are used by our shopping cart to ID your individual purchases.
