When you make a purchase on the Byrd Designs web site, you must complete the online order form with your payment and shipping information. We ask for your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, shipping address, credit card number, and credit card expiration date.
The personal information that you submit through the Byrd Designs web site is used to process your order, and to provide you with an order confirmation number that you can use to track your purchase.

We only ask for the personal information that we need to validate and process your online purchase. Any additional requested information (through surveys, etc.) is anonymous, and only used as a basis for developing new products and promotions based on the preferences of our customers. We ask for this information in confidence so that we can better provide you with what you need to make all of your shopping experience fun and easy.
