Hemispheres Antique Maps & Prints is dedicated to ensuring that you have a positive experience using our web site and through your other interactions with us.  We respect your right to privacy.  We have developed this web page to describe how we use information that you send to us.

Our Code of Conduct
We follow the Code of Conduct of the International Antiquarian Mapsellers Association (IAMA).

Information That We Collect
We collect information that you decide to submit to us through emails, through our secure server ordering form, and through other means of communication:  telephone calls, faxes, letters, and in-person interactions.

This information may include your name, mailing addresses, email addresses, telephone numbers, map purchases, map interests, and/or map needs.  For credit card transactions, we also collect credit card numbers and expiration dates. 
We only use your credit card details to process map orders that you place with us. 

All information you provide to us is held in confidence by Hemispheres Antique Maps & Prints, and will NOT be shared with other parties, other than through the processing of a credit card transaction with our bank.   This information is securely kept from the public and is only seen by the two principals in Hemispheres Antique Maps & Prints, Richard & Penelope Betz.

How We Use Information That We Collect
On occasion, we will notify you, usually via email, if we have a map that might interest you, based on your correspondence with us.  As we are especially sensitive to unwanted emails and as we do not send "mass-marketing emails", we urge you to regularly check our web site for new listings that we post throughout the year. 

We do mail an occasional print catalog to clients who may wish to receive this information, often toward the end of each year. 

Tracking Software and Cookies
Our web site does not use tracking software and we do not enable "cookies" on our web site.

Secure Certicate for on-line transactions

Hemispheres Antique Maps uses a secure certificate
for on-line credit card transactions that is provided by our website host, Hostway.  Please note that your internet browser may provide an error message that states " uses an invalid security certificate; *" or "(Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)". We are using a secure server provided by Hostway, our website provider, at  It is still secure.

We hope this information has been helpful.  Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
