We have appropriate security measures in place online, as well as in our Teaworks facility, to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you.

Do We Use Cookies?

While the Smith tea makers adore almond butter cookies and make sure the lab is well stocked to accompany our morning, afternoon, midday and early evening teas while at the shop, we’re using that electronic type as well.

If you’re unfamiliar, the non edible kind of cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computers’ hard drive through your web browser (if you permit) that allows the sites or service providers systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.

We use these non-delicious cookies to assist us in processing the items in your shopping cart, to understand and save your preferences for future visits and to compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.

If you prefer, you can choose to turn these cookies off, but in so doing, some of our services may not function properly, just so you know. You can also opt-out of Google Analytic for Display Advertising by changing your preferences in your Google account or by downloading the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.

Do We Disclose Any Information To Outside Parties?

We won’t trade, rent, sell or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies or protect our or others rights, property or safety.
