About TeamRusscher

On Etsy since 2013

Team Russcher is so much more than a hand crafted accessories shop - we're a family that's passionate about helping others. #TeamRusscher

Our journey began in April 2014 when our daughter Allison had a G-Tube (feeding tube) placed. Shortly after we brought our brand-new baby home from the NICU and got to work learning all we could about feeding tubes and tubal care, and began making custom feeding tube accessories for friends all over the world!

We are excited to be bringing new items to our shop in 2016! Please follow us on Facebook, and sign up for our email updates at teamrusscher.com

We're happy to meet you!

Thank you for supporting our family! Purchases through the Team Russcher shop on Etsy help fund the Princess Alli Foundation and it's mission to support the families of children with illnesses in memory of Allison Ruth Russcher. Please visit the Princess Alli Foundation at www.princessallifoundation.org to find out how you can get involved.



Allison Ruth Russcher

Princess Allison was born on March 12, 2014. Shortly after birth it was discovered that she had a cleft palate. Combined with our families previous "marfan-like" diagnosis her cleft helped us to confirm a clinical family diagnosis of Loeys-Dietz Syndrome.

Princess Allison passed away on January 29, 2015, after suffering respiratory failure caused by RSV. She was the bravest, most beautiful little girl we have ever known.



Loeys-Dietz Syndrome (LDS)

Loeys-Dietz Syndrome is a connective tissue disorder that can affect several of the body's systems, but is characterized by cardiac complications such as aggressive aneurysms. It requires frequent screening to reduce the risk of complications. There is no cure, only management of the symptoms.

Our family had planned to travel to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD in February 2015 to have Dr. Dietz evaluate Allison and provide us with a treatment and screening plan for her and the rest of our family. We were able to send valuable genetics tests in before Allison passed that will hopefully allow Dr. Dietz and his team to make new diagnosis to help our family and others with connective tissue disorders. With the support of our friends, families, and customers around the world we were able to make the trip to see Dr. Dietz in June of 2015.

Privacy
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 clothing, for example), if you contact me directly.

NOTE: I do NOT receive bank and/or credit account numbers when you place your order with Etsy, Paypal, or other third party payment processors, nor can I access this information after payment is complete. This information remains secure with the processor used to complete your payment. For help with Etsy or third party payments, and to request a copy of your payment processor's Privacy Policies, please contact their customer service departments 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;
-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: 8 years.

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.

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. NOTE: I am unable to delete information regarding your order stored on and by Etsy, Paypal, or your third party payment processor. To access, correct or delete personal information held by Etsy, you may contact Etsy directly at Etsy.com/help for assistance.
-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.

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Melanie Russcher, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at teamrusscher [!at] gmail.com. Alternately, you may mail me at:
