IP Address Use:
As with most web sites, our server logs all traffic by the IP address of each user. The IP address information that we log is used by our technical support staff for server administration and broad demographic reporting.
Cookies are identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide personalization features and storage of items in your Shopping Basket between visits. The help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, and how to disable cookies altogether.
When you attempt to add an item to your "shopping basket" or access any other "secure" page on this web site, we ask that you log in or register if you haven't already done so. Our servers use the latest secure socket layer (SSL) protocol to encrypt all sensitive information. We also ask for information during the checkout process. The information you provide and we collect are used in the following way:
Name and Address: This information is used as defaults for billing and shipping information during the check-out process. We also use this information to confirm the identification of callers when calling in to return items.
Telephone Number: This information is used to contact a customer if an urgent problem arises with their order, for calling back customers to our service department in case of disconnection, and for caller identification.
Password: This information provides each customer with private access to his or her personal information. Passwords are encrypted and stored in our secure database server and are not decrypted or shared with anyone.
E-mail Address: This is the unique identifier for each customer and is used by customers with the password to gain access to their personal and sales information. It is also used during order processing to notify customers of order status and customer service issues.
Shipping and Billing Address Information: This information is used for processing orders and is saved with each order as a "receipt". You view all previous orders by logging on using you E-mail Address and Password.
Order Information: This includes item, price, shipping, and tax information. This information can be used elsewhere in the system to provide references to another customer (e.g., "Those who purchased this item also bought...").
