Ka-Blam Values and Respects Your Privacy
During registration you are required to give certain information (such as your name, mailing address, and email address). This information is used to process and deliver your orders, as well as to contact you regarding the progress of your orders. If ever there arises a problem or issue with your order, we will use this information to contact you.
At your option, you may also sign up to receive e-mail notices from us regarding upcoming promotions or sales events. We will not use your address –mailing or email– to send you these notices unless you specifically opt in.
We do NOT request, accept, or store any financial information from you. All of our payment transactions (except payments made via check or money order) are processed through third party sites (presently Paypal only) with their own terms of service and privacy policies.

Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time, Ka-Blam may offer surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore whether or not to disclose any information necessary to complete the survey or participate in the contest. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level, interests, etc.). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
Lastly, A Word about IndyPlanet sales
We’re sure it would be interesting for you to know who is buying your books at IndyPlanet, but we simply cannot share that information with you. Whenever a customer registers to use our services we make a promise to them that we will not share with any other person or entity any information they provide to us in the course of our interactions. It’s the ONLY way we can operate really. Our customers have to know that they can trust us with their private information or the whole system falls apart.
If IndyPlanet customers choose to contact you … that’s terrific! I would even encourage you to solicit that contact in your printed items and through your website. Put your contact info out there and ask your readers and supporting shop owners to interact with you. That would be good for all parties involved.
But we can’t — and won’t — share any of our customers’ info — including what they buy — with anyone other than those in our offices who need the information to do their jobs.
