This website takes
every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit
sensitive information via the website, your information is protected
both online and off-line.
When our registration/order
form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card
number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the
best encryption software in the industry – SSL ( Secure Socket Layer),
MIA SET (Secure Electronic Transaction). While on a secure page,
such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers
such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes
locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’.

While we use SSL
encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything
in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users’
information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above,
is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information
to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer
service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable
information. Our employees must use password-protected screen-savers
when they leave their desks. When they return, they must re-enter
their password to re-gain access to your information. Furthermore,
ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.
Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees
are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy,
and what they can do to ensure our customers’ information is protected.
Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information
on are kept in a secure environment, behind a locked cage.
If you have any
questions about the security at our website, you can send an e-mail
In order for this
website to properly fulfill its obligation to our customers, it
is necessary for us to supplement the information we receive with
information from 3rd party sources.
For example, to
determine if our customers qualify for one of our credit cards,
we use their name and credit card number to request a credit report.
Once we determine a user’s credit-worthiness, this document is destroyed.
We send all new
members a welcoming e-mail to verify password and username. Established
members will occasionally receive information on products, services,
special deals, and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy
of our users we present the option to not receive these types of
communications. Please see our choice and opt-out below.
