Element Earth Design

I'm Anne, and you may know me from my long standing Etsy shop, Greenchild Creations: greenchildcreations.etsy.com where I offer cloth diapers, natural skin care, and crafty things. I am very drawn to the element of earth and have spent over two decades with herbalism and natural healing as a hobby. It has become who I am . . . greenchild. I can often be found in nature foraging for wild edibles; this is where I get most of my photography ideas, many of which are taken in our Minnesota State Parks as well as at our family cabin in Ontario, Canada. The rest, well, I just like to create. :)

I am part of one more shop, The Sisters Elemental (closed) and the Facebook Pages linked here will take you to my Greenchild Creations Facebook page, and my Element Earth Design Facebook page which has become a spiritual community page with over 3500 members ~ please feel free to join us! The Instagram link is also Greenchild Creations; I post my Element Earth Design nature photos there too. :)

The Wind is my song, Fire warms my soul, Water brings me life, Earth keeps me centered, Spirit joins them all and makes my heart soar . . . Blessed Be!

Returns and exchange details
If you experience any functional defects with any Element Earth Design product, please convo me and we can work something out - refund, exchange, future discount, etc. When sending items for return, please insure your package and provide tracking information. Items returned for any other reason other than damage in shipping or functional defect: original shipping costs are not refunded.

Please use all items responsibly. Element Earth Design is not responsible for misuse of products.
Payment
Payment must be received prior to shipping orders. Etsy accepts most credit/debit cards. Etsy does not share your credit/debit card information with Etsy sellers.
Shipping
Payment must be received before orders are shipped. Stock orders are generally shipped next business day. Custom orders take longer, depending on whether or not supplies need to be ordered in.

Sales tax must be collected on taxable items (non clothing related) shipping within Minnesota, shipping & handling included.

SHIPMENTS WITHIN THE USA: All orders are shipped USPS First Class and occasionally Priority Mail to save you money. All packages are sent insured and with tracking. Delivery within the USA is usually pretty quick, but please be aware delivery may take up to 10 business days. If you'd like a different shipping method, please contact me and I will be happy set up a reserved listing for you on Etsy for the cost difference. Payment for extra mail services must be received before shipping.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS: All orders are shipped USPS First Class International or USPS Parcel Post to save you money. International shipments may take longer to arrive. Please expect delivery in 2 - 8 weeks or longer, depending on destination. If you wish not to wait that long, and want a different shipping method, please contact me for shipping via Priority Mail International. I will be happy set up a reserved listing for you on Etsy for the cost difference. Payment for extra mail services must be received before shipping.

I have estimated shipping costs as best I can. If purchasing more than one item, please feel free to contact me first for a more accurate shipping quote. I do refund excess shipping when it is more than postage + my cost.

PLEASE NOTE: Please be aware that for shipping to some countries, the customer is expected to pay customs/duty fees before receiving their package. Customs/duty fees are solely the responsibility of the customer. Element Earth Design is not responsible for, nor can legally pay, the customer's customs/duty fees. Etsy shows the text "VAT included (where applicable)" under the price of all items that ship to the EU. This is a general blanket statement which only applies to EU sellers who are VAT registered. Element Earth Design is located in the USA, is not VAT registered, and no VAT is included in the price for any Element Earth Design products. VAT/customs/duty charged by the customer's country are the *CUSTOMER'S RESPONSIBILITY*. The customer will have to pay VAT and additional charges upon receipt of their purchase.

I use recycled/recyclable packaging whenever possible. :)
Additional policies and FAQs
CUSTOM ORDERS: I am happy to do custom orders! If I do not have the supplies in stock and need to obtain it, please understand that my cost goes up and will be reflected in the price of the custom item. All custom orders must be paid prior to the work beginning.

WHOLESALE ORDERS: I am open to wholesale offers! Each item is carefully made and a lot of attention and love goes into every single one of them. Due to the time involved to make a high quality product, I cannot offer deep discounts, even for large quantity orders. I can however offer a smaller discount for an order that meets minimum quantities. As a wholesaler, you are welcome to mark up your retail price higher than mine; in a brick & mortar store customers are not charged shipping so it may work out better for the customer in the long run. All orders must be paid for before shipping. If purchasing non-in-stock items, payment must be made before the work begins.

CONSIGNMENT STORES: I am not open to providing product on consignment.

TRADES - I am not open to trades at this time.

PRIVACY POLICY
All of the personal information you, the customer, provides to me is provided first to Etsy.com, who then shares it with me in order for me to perform my services for you. I, in turn, may share only the necessary data to trusted 3rd parties in order to fulfill my seller duties (i.e., delivery services or to an outside manufacturer to complete/ship your order). I do not store your data outside of what is provided to me by Etsy.com, and as such, as long as Etsy stores your data I only have access to the data you provided me through Etsy in order for me to perform my services. I am not able to delete data stored within Etsy; you may contact Etsy about what personal information can be deleted from Etsy.com.
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.
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 of jewelry, 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 fulfil 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 (I do not currently have a mailing list but if I ever do create one, you may provide your affirmative consent and revoke it at any time);
• 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.
• Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
• 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: 7 years. All of the personal information you provide to me is provided first to Etsy.com, who shares it with me in order for me to perform my services for you. I do not store your data outside of Etsy.com, and as such, as long as Etsy stores your data I only have access to the data you provided me through Etsy in order for me to perform my services.

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.

All of the personal information you provide to me is provided first to Etsy.com, who shares it with me in order for me to perform my services for you. I do not store your data outside of what is provided to me by Etsy.com, and as such, as long as Etsy stores your data I only have access to the data you provided me through Etsy in order for me to perform my services. I am not able to delete data stored within Etsy; you may contact Etsy to remove your data from Etsy.com.

How to Contact Me
For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Anne Hoelz, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at greenchild @ q.com. You may also read Etsy’s Privacy Policies at Etsy.com.
