PROTECTION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We take your privacy and the protection of your personal information very seriously. While no service provider can guarantee absolute security when communicating over the internet or wireless networks, we are committed to taking steps to help secure any personal information that may be in our possession. For example, we use electronic security measures, including encryption, passwords, and SSL network connections, all of which are reasonably designed to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access or disclosure, consistent with industry standards 

You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any password used to log in, if any, and you should always be mindful and responsible whenever disclosing information online that the information is potentially accessible to the public, and consequently, could be collected and used by others without your consent.

FINANCIAL INFORMATION FOR CREDIT CARD TRANSACTIONS

We charge for all our products in advance and accept payment via credit card and other payment methods that are posted on our checkout page. We use a third party to process each credit card transaction. All credit card transactions are processed over a network secured using an encryption protocol, such as SSL or 3DES. In addition, we use a secure SSL connection to receive your payment information online. If you authorize us to, we retain credit card information, with the exception of CVV codes, for the purpose of processing automatically reoccurring payments and to make future payments more convenient. We store credit card information on a secure server, which is not connected to a public network. We only display the last four digits of your credit card number when confirming an order. Depending on your user preferences, we may send you an email at the address specific in your account settings in certain circumstances, such as if your credit card has been declined.
