When purchasing on our website you will be asked to provide certain personal identifying information that will be used to process your order. We may also use this info to contact you or to provide you with customer service. The personal information we collect is your:
· Email Address
· First Name and Last Name
· Phone number
· Billing Street Address, City, State or Province, & Zip Code / Postal Code
At checkout, your credit card number, the expiration date, and the security code will be passed to our Payment Gateway to authorize and process your purchase. The last 4 digits of your credit card number are the only digits we can access. Record of the last 4 digits is for your benefit, so that we can reference the payment method you used.
Our payment gateway also collects your computer’s Internet Protocol address (IP address). Google AdWords and Google Analytics are third-party service providers that track data while you are on our site, such as browser type and browser version, pages visited, time spent on those pages, and other diagnostic data.
When you enter your personal information for an order, it is transmitted through a secure server via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology which is then encrypted into our Payment gateway’s database and is only accessible by those authorized with special access rights.
Cookies are used on our site, just like other websites you shop on online. Cookies are tiny data files that track visits to the website. Cookies allow websites to recognize users as they browse through the site or return to the site, making the user experience fast, convenient, and fluid. An example of how cookies works is that when you add an item to the shopping cart, leave the site and come back later, the site will remember (for a set period of time) that you were already on the site, will load images faster, and will remember items you looked at, or added to the shopping cart.
