If and when we or one of the payment processing companies we use asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL.

While on a secure page, the lock icon on the bottom of web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’. To learn more about SSL, click here.

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 desk. When they return, they must reenter their password to regain 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.

In order for this website to properly fulfill its obligation to our customers, it may be necessary for us to supplement the information we receive with information from 3rd party sources.

Glossary of Terms:

Aggregate

When we state that we collect information in the aggregate, we mean for summary purposes only. For example, we collect referrer addresses "in the aggregate" to answer such questions as: "How many people from Yahoo visited our site last week?"

Cookies

Cookies are pieces of information that we store in your computer. Temporary cookies only last as long as your browser is running. Persistent cookies are stored on your hard disk (they take up very little space). We use cookies exclusively for advertising purposes.

IP Address

When you are connected to the Internet, your computer has a unique Internet ID called an IP Address. Most people that connect through a dial-up service, such as America Online, get a different IP Address each time they login. Others might have a permanently assigned IP Address, called a static IP Address. It is difficult or impossible for a web site to collect personal information about you (i.e., your name, email address, etc.) from your IP Address alone.

Browser Types

Browser types refers to the brand of browser that you are using to access pages on our site. Some examples of popular browsers include Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator & Web TV. By tracking what browser types are accessing are site, we can make sure that our pages are displayed properly to our visitors.

Browser Version

Browser version is a number the browser developers assign to their software programs in order to keep track of different versions of their browsers. For example Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0 or Netscape Navigator 4.5.
