How do we get the Customer’s consent?
When the Customer provides us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify the credit card, place an order, and arrange a delivery or return of a purchase, it automatically means the Customer is consenting us to collect and use the Customer’s information to the extent necessary to complete these purposes. If we ask for the Customer’s personal information for a secondary reason (e.g. marketing), we will either ask an expressed consent directly from the Customer or provide the Customer with an opportunity to say no.
How do we protect the Customer’s personal data?
For security of transactions, we use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol which encrypts any personal information the Customer enters in the Application before it is sent to us. We also make commercially reasonable effort to ensure the security of the Customer’s personal information on our system. Unfortunately, data transmission over the Internet is not guaranteed as 100% secured. As a result, we cannot warrant the security of any information during transmission.
