We provide a secure shopping environment. We appreciate your business and we respect and guard your privacy. In order to complete your order or to satisfy your request for information, you will be asked to provide certain personal information. Safeguards are in place to ensure the security and privacy of your information. These safeguards are detailed below.
Secure Web Site Browsing
In order to be sure that information transferred between your browser and our server is secure, it is important to be aware of the security information available to you through your browser. Once you enter the Checkout process (when you’re ready to purchase the items you have put into your Shopping Cart), your connection to our server becomes secure. To confirm this, look next to the address bar or at the bottom of your browser window. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending upon your browser) you can be sure that your information is secure.
You can also ensure security by checking the URL line of your browser. When you enter the secure area of our site, the first characters of the site address will change from “http” to “https”.
“Cookies” are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Our cookies do not contain any personal identification information, but they do enable us to provide features such as storing items in your shopping cart between visits. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser to prevent that. Even without a cookie, you can still use most of the features in our store, including placing items in your shopping cart and purchasing them.
You and your information are secure while shopping online. Our secure server software is among the best available today for safe commerce transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name and address so that unauthorized persons cannot access it over the Internet.
In A Secure Environment In several areas of our website, we ask you to provide information by filling out and submitting an online form. These areas include the Checkout, where we ask for name, address, e-mail, credit card and other information needed to complete your order.
The information we collect is never used personally, rather it’s used to improve our Website (in the case of customer feedback), and for special notices to our customers who purchase one or more products (in the case of successful orders through the Order Form).
We never provide your personal data to any third party. As a strict policy, we do not sell, trade, rent or otherwise share your e-mail address with any other company or third party.
We want to communicate with you only if you want to hear from us, such as if you check the box to add your e-mail to our newsletter list.
When you place an order using our online checkout process, we may correlate your IP address with your order in cases of fraudulent credit card use. In the case of a suspected fraudulent order, we may share this with the financial institution that issued the credit card with which an order was placed.
We may also share this IP information with law enforcement authorities, if we determine use of the credit card was fraudulent. Your IP address is used to help identify your browser and your shopping cart, and that is the extent of the information gathered.
