Basically, we don't even see your credit card information. So we really can't compromise it, even if we want to (and we don't want to).
How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?
Generally, we use customer information for purposes of managing and expanding our business activities, providing customer service, and making available products to our customers and prospective customers.
We do not put you on a mailing list or start sending you spam.
We allow you the choice to opt-out of having your information used for purposes not directly related to our site, when we ask for the information. Until you explicitly opt-in for the first time we consider you in the opt-out category. We always notify our customers when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether or not they should proceed with services that require an outside party.
We do not bombard people with e-mails, nor do we start sending them surface junk mail. We don't take your contact with us as "permission" to start sending you anything or sign you up for any list of any sort. Mindconnection does have an eNL that comes out twice a month. You must ask to be signed up for it--we don't assume you want to receive it just because you bought a product or contacted us for some other reason.
What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a Website, that site's computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each Website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser permits a Website to access only the cookies it has already sent to you (not the cookies sent to you by other sites).
How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?
Cookies, in conjunction with our Web server's log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our Website and which parts of the site are most popular. This helps us to constantly improve our Website and better serve our customers. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not generally store any personal information that you provided to us in your cookies.
Sharing Information with Third Parties
We may enter into alliances or other business arrangements with third parties. But we do not give them access to personal information (including your name, address, telephone number, and email) for the purpose of providing you information regarding products and services that we think will be of interest to you. We provide them that information only with the purpose of delivering your product. We ask anyone in an alliances or other business arrangements with us to respect that and not use your information beyond that purpose.
In connection with alliances or other business arrangements, we provide certain information to third parties if we have determined that the information will be used in a responsible manner by a responsible third party. Otherwise, we don't.
We use third parties to facilitate our business, including, but not limited to, sending email and processing credit card payments. In connection with these offerings and business operations, third parties may have access to your personal information for use in connection with business activities.
How Do We Protect Your Information?
Let us count the ways....
Secure Information Transmissions
Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, we insist that you never send credit card information via e-mail. Doing so violates your credit card policy and it puts you at risk. We do have a means of sharing that information that conforms to your credit card policy and protects you and your information: our Website.
Some of the information you may enter on our Website may be transmitted securely via Secure Sockets Layer SSL, 128 bit encryption services. Pages utilizing this technology will have URLs that start with HTTPS instead of HTTP. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
hat About Other Websites Linked to Our Website?
We are not responsible for the practices employed by Websites linked to or from our Website nor the information or content contained therein. Often links to other Websites are provided solely as pointers to information on topics that may be useful to the users of our Website.
Notification of Changes
