Safety of Your Information
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of users’ personal information anytime they log onto their account. When a user submits sensitive information via the website, their information is protected both online and off-line.
We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway provider’s database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems and are required to keep the information confidential. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of web browers, such as 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 (billing clerks or customer service reps) are granted access to personally indentifiable information.
Cookies are small pieces of data sent from a website and stored in a user’s web browser while the user is browsing a website. Cookies also enable the site or service provider systems to recognize the user’s browser and capture and remember certain information.
The usage of cookies is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site.

We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies.
