Dances with Horses Australia appreciates your business and we hold the privacy of your personal information in the highest
regard.   For your protection, we maintain a privacy policy that protects your personal information and maintains high security
of your electronic commerce.  We want you to return to our site often and feel secure when shopping at
every time you do.  For your understanding, the following statement details our information gathering and dissemination practices,
as well as our security measures. 


We recognizes the importance of protecting your privacy and our policy is designed to assist you in understanding how we

Account Form and Order Process:

At Dances with Horses Australia we use PayPal, the global leader in online payments.  PayPal enables you to make secure
purchases without sharing your credit card or financial information with sellers.  In other words, your financial information is
directed only to PayPal, not Dances with Horses Australia.  Only your name, order request, billing and email address and
amount paid are passed onto us at Dances with Horses Australia.  We use this information to process your order and, if any
questions should arise, to contact you about your order.  In general, we will try to contact you first by email and if that fails,
or if time is critical, we will try and contact you by phone.  With PayPal you receive "100% protection against unauthorised
payments sent from your account".  When you make a purchase, PayPal will send you an email confirmation of your account
transaction.  For more information please visit PayPal's website and refer to their Privacy Policy found
at the bottom of the screen.
