How we seek to secure your information

However, our efforts to protect your confidential information are not foolproof, and should not ever be regarded as perfect or impenetrable. Accidents happen. Accordingly, despite our reasonable efforts described above, your information could fall into the wrong hands and be used or disclosed in ways you wouldn’t want it to be used or disclosed. Please help us keep your user account and personal information secure by using a strong (!) password and not sharing it with others or keeping it someplace where someone can find it. We will never ask you for your password, so do not give it to someone claiming to be us if you are asked for it.

You are responsible for all uses of our website by any person using your password. If you know or suspect that your password has been stolen or compromised, or that your user account has been accessed without your authorization, please change your password immediately and notify us about it.

Payments and Secure Socket Layer (SSL)

All purchases must be made by credit card, debit card, or payments via PayPal.  All billing related information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into a payment gateway provider’s database.  Such information is accessible only by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and they are required to keep that information confidential. After the completion of a transaction, all payment related information, such as credit card numbers, will not be stored on our servers.

In addition and consistent with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we never will knowingly request personal information from anyone under the age of 13 years. If we discover that a child under the age of 13 years has provided us with personal information, we will endeavor to delete that information.
