Fostering a child natural curiosity and wonder

Who is Mirus Toys?

Mirus Toys is a woman-owned, minority-owned educational material small business located in Vancouver, WA. We are a team of 5 women led by a mom of two Montessori children who also happens to be a computational biologist. Together we make heirloom-quality products that you will be proud to offer your students.

What does Mirus Toys do?

Mirus means wonderful in Latin. As a mom, I get to witness the wonder of childhood discovery every day. Most adults take a caterpillar crawling across a green leaf or a stone skipping on water for granted. For children, these same events raise endless questions and hours of engagement. The most interesting and impactful adults I know, maintain this fascination. With Mirus Toys, I hope to allow more children to retain their sense of wonder and nurture it to greater heights by allowing them to explore and understand the natural world in an intuitive and fun way.

Mirus Toys offers designs that are safe, thoughtful, well-researched, and purposeful. Each item meets and exceeds the guidelines set by the Consumer Products Safety Commission for Children's toys. The children’s safety is priority #1.

Why should you buy from Mirus Toys?

When you choose Mirus Toys, you are selecting products that:
Encourage the child’s curiosity and creativity

The following is a long list of legal mumbo-jumbo that is required when I do business in certain areas. It can be summed up this way: I only collect the minimum necessary information to complete you order; I don't share it with anyone unless it is absolutely necessary (like, say, the Post Office for shipping); I won't put you on a mailing list, or keep contacting you after your order is complete.

Information I Collect

To fulfill 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, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), 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.

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.
- 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.

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: 2 years.

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.
