TheTentLab's Privacy Policy

Very simply, we don't record, track or otherwise keep tabs on anybody at any time. We use Google strictly to measure our website traffic and have a facebook link only so people can like us.
The information contained in orders for our products (email, address and sometimes phone number) are not shared or sold or even analyzed in any way, shape or form. Also, for all products ordered from our website buttons and carts, we never see a customer's credit card number. That data stays with Square or PayPal.

TheTentLab's Factory Code of Conduct

We're literally a 1-2 person business so it might seem a little strange, but we try to actively promote fair and honest work practices. To that end, we have adopted REI's Factory Code of Conduct which is reproduced below (Copyright REI).
Our overseas factories already comply with this code of conduct because they also supply REI directly — so they are fully on the program. Our US factories meet this code as required under US Labor and EPA laws.

TheTentLab's Restricted Substances List

We're proud of our tents being as chemical free as possible. We use no fire retardants or fluorinated repellency treatments (also known as per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances, PFAS). But we think it's a good idea to actually declare at least some of the chemicals we won't use and that's what our Restricted Substances List is. It's not comprehensive – we DON'T USE many many many bad chemicals – but it's nice to have an actual list of banned baddies. Note that our tents get most of the attention but this also goes for our Deuce® of Spades trowels as well. There are no known chemical health risks to users of our anodized aluminum trowels.

TheTentLab's Cultural Appropriation Policy

There are a lot of cool ideas on this planet; cool looks, cool ways of doing things, cool names and associations. Many of these cool things are part of the culture of groups of people. Here in Colorado there are great examples of culture among the Native American peoples of the area – fantastic stories, unique art and design styles and historical artifacts. We don't "borrow" any of these things from other people to sell our products. In the event that there is a product that we want to offer that imitates something from another culture, we're going to find a way to source it from that culture or not make it at all. This isn't theoretical: I have a great accessory idea that's waiting for me to find a Tibetan or Nepali partner to make it (assuming it meets with their approval).
