General Introduction

Because safeguarding your privacy and the personal information with which you entrust us is one of our highest priorities, we have formulated the following detailed explanation of our approach to ensuring that your information is handled in a secure and responsible manner. This policy has been posted to inform you of our practices for collecting information, our usage of that information, and the choices you have in this regard.

We reserve the right to periodically update or change this policy and all of our other policies and procedures without notice. Please check back frequently to familiarize yourself with our most current policy.

This policy was last updated on June 25, 2012.

Your Personal Information

In general, you may browse this website without supplying any personally identifiable information. However, to enter certain areas of IANSAUDE.COM (the "Site"), you may be asked to furnish such information. Should you choose not to provide that information, you may not be able to access all of this website or utilize certain of its features. Additionally, our server may automatically collect anonymous information, such as log data and IP addresses. For the usage of such data, see the section below on Site Functionality & the Use of Cookies.

Any information you provide us is only used to improve, personalize and enhance Site content and to better our service to you, our valued customer. We never sell your information or lend the data you furnish to us to any other entities outside of IAN SAUDE INC. (the owner of IANSAUDE.COM) and our immediate affiliate group. In the unlikely event of the sale of some or all of our business, IAN SAUDE INC. reserves the right to disclose/transfer your personal information to the purchaser, provided they agree to abide by the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Site Functionality and the Use of Cookies

A cookie is a piece of data that enables us to track and target your preferences. We may send a "cookie" to your Internet browser so we can recognize you as a return user and personalize your experience and your use of our Site. The cookie will be stored on your computer's hard drive until you remove it.

We may also use temporary or "session" cookies to help you shop. These cookies will expire when you place an order. You can set your browser to notify you of, or automatically reject, cookies. If you reject our cookies, you may still use the Site, but you may be limited in the use of some of its features.

We may also use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the Site, track traffic patterns, and gather demographic information for aggregate use, as well as in combination with your personally identifiable information for credit card fraud protection and risk reduction.

Email & Other Communications

Occasionally, we may also use your information to contact you about special offers, new products or services, or to notify you of updates to this site. This is an optional feature and presented purely as a service to you. You always have the opportunity to opt-out of receiving future mailings or contact by us. Please see the Opt-Out section below for details on how to do so.

In emailing us, please note that your e-mail is not encrypted and is not considered to be a secure means of transmitting information. Therefore, please do not send us your credit card information or any other sensitive personal information via email correspondence.


IANSAUDE.COM welcomes your comments and suggestions on new products you want to see and how we might better serve your needs. We also, at our discretion, entertain commissions for unique or extraordinary works for private clients. However, unless otherwise agreed upon in writing, in submitting information to IAN SAUDE INC. (IANSAUDE.COM), you agree that any and all designs, concepts, photographs, testimonials, suggestions, ideas or other items or materials (other than your personal information) disclosed or submitted to us, either through this Site or by another means ("Submissions") are neither confidential nor proprietary to you.

All submissions become the property of IAN SAUDE INC. upon submission to us. By making a Submission to IANSAUDE.COM, you assign to us unrestricted and irrevocable license to such material, including all rights, title and interests, including copyrights. IAN SAUDE INC. has no express obligation to acknowledge such a Submission nor to keep it confidential nor to pay you or any third-party any form of compensation for it or for its subsequent usage. By making a Submission, you agree that IAN SAUDE INC. has the right (but not the obligation) to copy, publish, distribute or use such Submission for any purpose, including, but not limited to, advertising, promotional, product development or other commercial purposes, without compensation to you or to any other person.

You are and shall remain solely responsible for the content of any Submission you make to us.

In the context of making a Submission for the purposes of executing a commission, you agree to indemnify IAN SAUDE INC. for any loss resulting from an infringement on a patent, trademark, copyright or any other right of a third-party, because of our compliance with the specifications furnished by you, "the Buyer". Upon our written request, the Buyer agrees to defend any action brought against IAN SAUDE INC. for infringement at the Buyer’s sole cost and expense.


It is always your choice to receive information from us. We give you the opportunity to specify whether or not you wish to receive communications from us when you originally set up your client account. If you later wish to discontinue communications from us:

Using Your Credit Card

For purchases made via this website it is our general policy to gain authorization from your credit card issuer for the full amount of the items you have purchased (including any applicable taxes, shipping, handling or other fees) at the time of check-out. This is also true for special order or customized items, even though the product may not, as yet, have been produced or be ready for delivery. By submitting your payment information at the time of checkout, you are authorizing us to charge your credit card in the full amount of the order (including any applicable taxes, shipping, handling or other fees) regardless of the current delivery status of the items within that order.

In-stock merchandise generally ships within 72 hours. For special order merchandise, please allow a minimum of 6-8 weeks for delivery. After placing a special order, you can email us at any time or call Client Care toll-free at 1.805.784.0967, Monday-Saturday, 10am to 5pm (Pacific Time) to check on the status of your order. We would be happy to assist you. For custom work and private commissions, please call us directly at 1.805.784.0967 for ordering and sales assistance.

For further details about the security measures implemented on this site for credit card users and SSL technology, please refer to our Security statement, below.

Third-Party Relationships

IANSAUDE.COM maintains third-party relationships primarily with credit card authorization/processing companies, our shippers, our web developers and our server. These companies only have access to information that is necessary for each to fulfill its respective role in bringing this site to you and in completing our clients’ orders.

For specific details on the respective roles of these three parties, please read the following sections of this Privacy & Security statement and also see the Client Services sections of this site:

We also reserve the right to cooperate with legal authorities in the context of an investigation or legal proceedings and to share your personal information with them to the degree the law requires, or to protect us against misuse or unauthorized use of this Site, or to limit our legal liability to protect our rights or the rights, property or safety of the users of this Site or of the public.

This Site may also contain links to other websites. IANSAUDE.COM is not responsible for the availability of, or any content or material contained in, or obtained through, any such sites. By linking to another site or by making reference to any third-party information, including products or services, this Site does not endorse those sites or materials. Any issues or inquiries relating to any other "linked" site should be addressed solely to the operator of those sites. No linking to this website is permitted without prior written permission from IANSAUDE.COM. Please contact us if you would like to link to this site.


At IANSAUDE.COM we understand how important your security is to you. That is why we have taken appropriate measures to ensure that your online shopping experience is both safe and pleasant.

Once you place an order with our online store and have proceeded to "CHECKOUT," you will be asked for your credit card number, its expiration date and a security code. Your information is transmitted directly to a secure gateway and then to the credit card processing company for final authorization. Your information is not stored. All credit card transactions are processed securely through the most advanced and secure networks available utilizing SSL 128 bit encryption methods. Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, is used so that no one except the credit card authorization company can decrypt your information. Authorizations are made by our credit card processing services provider via Authorize.Net, one of the most reputed companies in their field.

Transaction Processing

When the letters "http" in the URL change to "https," the "s" indicates you are in a secure area employing SSL technology; also, your browser may give you a pop-up message that you're about to enter a secure area, if it is set to do so within your browser preferences. In addition, a padlock icon may appear somewhere on your browser interface, usually on or near the field displaying the website address (URL).

Please note that e-mail is not generally encrypted and is not considered to be a secure means of transmitting credit card information.

Internally, we have also taken precautions to ensure that your credit card information is protected by not storing anything but the last 4 digits of the credit card number used to make a purchase. Therefore, when you call in to check on an order, your Client Care Representative will not be able to give you specific billing information about your account, other than the last four digits of the credit card used to make your purchase.

Through taking such measures, it is our hope to provide you with complete confidence in shopping at IANSAUDE.COM.
