The American Kumihimo Society (AKS) respects your privacy. We do not sell or give our users’ information to any third party. We don’t use any third-party advertising or tracking services. If you become a member, buy something, take or attend a class or conference, the payment will be processed through (PayPal), but we do not retain your full credit card information. In some cases, it may be necessary for AKS to retain the last 4 digits and expiry information from a credit card. Users that have created an account on our website can edit their own information at any time by accessing My AKS in the top menu bar.

At any time you may opt-out of the (relatively few) emails that we send to our members.
