About

From Jet Pilot to Shop Owner and Mom

Clear Above Visibility Unlimited (CAVU). It’s an aviation term--one that I was lucky enough to experience often in my former life as a US Navy pilot. Nothing compares to the feeling that comes from launching off the aircraft carrier on a gray and cloudy day, only to burst through the clouds into warm sunshine and soar atop a cottony blanket of pure white. Those were my personal “roaring twenties,” and I wouldn't trade them for anything.

But now I’m onto an entirely new (equally challenging—and even more rewarding) adventure in life: Motherhood. I've traded in my jet for a Highlander and my flight gear for an "Ergo-baby." I am loving every minute of it!

I truly enjoy designing and hand-crafting the items I sell here on Etsy. Most importantly, indulging in this passion while working from home allows me to cherish more time with my sweet little ones. Each item is designed and handmade individually and completely by me, in my smoke-free and joyful home.

All of my creations originate from projects I initially made for myself, my own children, or for friends and family members and their little ones. I am a perfectionist at heart, and I won't sell anything in my shop that I wouldn't be proud to either have in my own home, or give to a close friend. I take pride in putting a lot of time and energy into designing and creating items of quality workmanship and charm.

I wholeheartedly believe you (or the recipient of your gift) will absolutely adore the item(s) you purchase from my shop. But if what you receive does not exceed your expectations, please let me know and we will work together to find an acceptable solution, whether it be a replacement, a refund, or something in between.

Please check out my new website here: www.shopCAVU.com
There you'll find my newest prints and items, along with an easier way to find what you're looking for!

I also have a digital download shop on Etsy: www.cavutoodesigns.etsy.com

Have an amazing day and thank you for shopping at CAVU Creations!

Returns and exchange details
I want you to be completely happy with your purchase from CAVU Creations. If what you receive from me does not exceed your expectations, please contact me immediately (within a maximum of 7 days from delivery). I will happily work with you so that we can find a solution together--whether it be in the form of a replacement, refund, or adjustment.

Please note, I cannot offer refunds on shipping costs, custom orders, or personalized/monogram items unless there has been an error on my part.
Payment
Payment is due in full upon ordering.

** WA SHIPPING ADDRESSES: Please note that WA requires sales tax to be collected at the rate applicable to the location in which the package is delivered--called a "destination tax". Therefore, I will charge all WA residents a 10.4% sales tax rate (the highest local rate in WA). If your local tax rate is lower than 10.4%, I will issue you a refund for the difference upon shipping. **
Shipping
SHIPPING COSTS: I COMBINE SHIPPING, so the shipping charge on additional items in the same order are much lower than if you were to order just one item. You can see the actual combined shipping cost if you place all items in your cart and then look at your cart total on the checkout page.

SHIPPING TIMES:
Most items in my shop are already made and ready to ship. I will ship these items in one (1) business day upon receiving your payment. For items which are made to order, I will ship within the timeline specified in the item description/shipping time frame attached to that specific item. For all orders, you will receive an email upon shipment with tracking information.

US SHIPPING:
- Tracking and delivery confirmation are included in the cost of shipping. You will receive a tracking number when I ship your order so you can check its progress along the way.
- Expedited shipping is available for an additional fee on most items--check the "Shipping & Policies" tab on the specific listing for the cost of expediting shipping on that item.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: At this time I also ship to Australia, Canada, New Zealand, select countries in Europe, and the UK. I ship these items USPS First Class International. There is limited tracking available using this method--tracking is provided while the package travels in the US and then there is typically a "delivery confirmation" when it arrives at its destination. If you are interested in upgrading to Priority or Express Mail, please let me know before purchasing so I can update the listing.
- For international shipping, please note that all duties, taxes, VAT, etc. are the sole responsibility of the buyer. As a US-based business, I am not responsible for, nor do I collect VAT on purchases made from locations outside the US. Though I will ship your purchase within one business day, international shipping times can sometimes exceed 3-4 weeks. Additionally, please know that Etsy shipping labels & customs forms are pre-filled with the sale price of the item--this is something I cannot adjust.

PACKAGING / GIFT OPTIONS: Each item will be sweetly and simply packaged with tissue paper and a CAVU label. Care instructions (as applicable) will also be included. If you are sending a gift and would like a hand-written note included, please let me know in the “info to seller” section upon payment—I’d love to include that for you!

** Please ensure that your Etsy address is updated before purchase. I cannot be responsible for items delivered to an incorrect address entered by the buyer.
Additional policies and FAQs
It is my number one goal for you to be completely satisfied with your shopping experience and purchase here at CAVU Creations. Please do not hesitate to contact me before, during, or after your purchase with any questions you have. I am very responsive and will get back to you quickly.

I am happy to receive your custom orders. Please contact me with your request and we will solidify all the details and payment before I start working on your special item. I am available through both Etsy “convo” and by email at cavucreations [!at] gmail.com

I thoroughly appreciate your feedback and referrals!
Privacy
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 or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

1. Personal 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 a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly. Please know that I cannot see your payment information (Etsy handles the transaction entirely). I do not use your personal information for any marketing purposes or give or sell the information to any other parties beyond Etsy itself, as approved by you.

2. Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect and use your information, including:
- as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
- 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 toimprove 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.

3. 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.e. shipping companies). 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.

4. 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: 4 years.

5. 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.

6. 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, Helen Worthington, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at cavucreations [!at] gmail.com.
