Privacy and Security
We utilize a secure site for our our entire website with the latest SHA256 encryption using an RSA 2048 bit key to protect your privacy and personal data. All data passed between your computer and our servers is encrypted. This prevents outsiders from obtaining credit card information or personal data as it is sent to our servers. You can safely enter your credit card number without fear of having it intercepted by anyone.
In order to make sure our website and servers are secure, we perform a comprehensive security audit of our website and have our site tested by an outside security company on a regular basis. This level of security screening meets or exceeds the guidelines set forth by the credit card companies to protect your personal and credit information.
We will not share your personal information (name, email, address, phone) with anyone for any reason unless compelled to do so by law.
Our software automatically sends out an order confirmation email when the order is received, and a ship notification email (if shipped via UPS or USPS) when the order is shipped. These emails are automatic and are sent by our server software. If you have spam blocking software that sends a return email and requires a response, you will most likely not receive these confirmation emails. You can check your order status by clicking on the Account menu near the top of each page on our website.
In order to keep our marketing costs low and provide the best service and prices to our customers, we utilize email marketing to keep our customers aware of specials and great deals. When you join our email list, or place an order, you'll be added to our weekly email program. Each of these emails includes an unsubscribe link to allow you to easily be removed from this list.
