My Gallery shows my artist books, which are sold through a private connection with me or through my representation.
My Library shares my personal writings and essays. When and if my book is published, I will likely begin a notification list for those interested in that, and that list will follow these parameters.
My Journal is an online blog. A subscription is offered for those who want to follow my postings and receive a notification when I upload a new post. The names I gather for this purpose are kept in my site dashboard and are not used for any other purpose than adding and deleting those who wish to subscribe. I am the only one who has access to these names.
Ordering, Payment and Shipping
I do not collect and save your personal information unless you provide it for ordering. I do not maintain a mailing list and do not add your name to any list that I keep outside of the order processing interface.
If you purchase products directly from cariferraro.com, or proseandletters.com, your name, email address and a transaction history will be kept by me. I may use the contact information to inform you about the status of your order, but it will never be used for any other purpose. This info is never shared with any third party.
I do not send out notifications relating to my product line in my Storefront, or contact you with special promotions or new products.
All payment data stays on PayPal. I do not at any time see your credit card number or any other details of your payment choices. PayPal is a highly secure payment portal. I have been using it to process my website orders since the year 2000, and have never had any insecure transaction or any kind of data breach.You can use PayPal to complete your order without setting up a PayPal account.
I process your order within 48 hours of receiving it, Monday through Friday. If for some reason I am away from my office, you will receive a notification stating when I will return and when you can expect your order to be processed. You will have the option of contacting me at that time to cancel if you wish.
Shipping fees are calculated during the checkout process and are based on my actual shipping rates. For California residents, state tax will also be calculated on the Paypal page.
PLEASE NOTE: I AM SORRY TO SAY THAT INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING FROM THE UNITED STATES IS VERY EXPENSIVE, AND CAN EXCEED THE COST OF YOUR ORDER. I will bill you for this amount, but I recommend that you CONTACT ME FIRST to get a shipping estimate before ordering. I will not be able to refund your full amount if you have placed your order because of the fees that PayPal assesses on all transactions.
Usage and Copyright
If you wish to use any of my artwork or writing, please do contact me. My usage fees are very modest, and I always appreciate being asked.
I am well aware that my work and that of all visual artists and writers often travels out into the world uncredited. There doesn’t seem to be anything we can do about it, but please do understand that the art and writing you see on my website was created by me. I have paid for long and sometimes expensive training, support an art and writing studio, buy art supplies and computers which I keep up to date, and maintain this website with its many attendant expenses.
I appreciate each and every order that I receive and silently lay a polite curse on anyone who steals my work without doing me the courtesy of asking.
If you order any of my cards and prints, I will of course send you the item without my copyright notice as it appears on this website.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about the above-stated policies, or about anything else on this website. I will answer in as timely a manner as possible.
Thank you for visiting!
