The Website may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize the Company webpages, or register with the Website for any reason, a cookie helps the Company to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same the Website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Company features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Website.
Security of your Personal Information
The Company secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.
The third party shopping cart serves as a transmitter in the payment transaction: it collects your information, saves it for the Company to be able to see who our customers are and track the sales, and then passes it to our third party payment gateways/processors that specialize in processing credit cards and provide the security level of protection required for storing and manipulating such sensitive data.
The Company and the third party shopping cart do not store your credit card details. Your credit card details are held securely by the third party payment gateway (payment processor) who has achieved Level 1 Payment Card Industry (PCI) Compliance, which is the highest level of compliance with the payment card industry’s security standards for credit card data. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard was developed to protect consumers and their data no matter where they shop or what channel they use. This is the same level as banks and payment gateways. PCI Level 1 means that they have been audited by an outside firm and is found to meet or exceed their standards for data storage, employee background checks, processes for updating programs, etc.
It is important to remember that whatever you transmit or disclose online can be collected and used by others or unlawfully intercepted by third parties. No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. In addition, we may disclose information to law enforcement or other government officials if we determine such disclosure to be appropriate, or if we are compelled to disclose it by court order or by operation of law.
Any information voluntarily disclosed by you and posted on the Website via its Interactive Services may be viewed and used by others. If you post personal information that is accessible to the public online, you do so at your own risk. You accept that you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
