WHAT INFORMATION DO YOU COLLECT?
The information that you give us and information about your order may be combined with other personally identifiable information (such as demographic information and past purchase history) available from our records and other sources. This information will be used to make our future marketing efforts more efficient. This information may also be shared with other marketers to bring you offers of interest. If you prefer that we do not share your name and address with other marketers, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHERE DO YOU COLLECT THE INFORMATION?
There are two areas on our site where we collect the personal information:
- the Check Out page
- Email Promotion List.
WHAT DO YOU DO WITH THE INFORMATION?
Once we have collected the above information, it is used to process orders, to communicate with you about your order, and to provide future notification to you of special offers or promotions. We also use it to improve our website. We may provide statistical information about buying patterns and traffic patterns to others, but this data does not include any personal information.
HOW AND WHY DO YOU USE "COOKIES"?
"Cookies" are a type of information that is stored on your hard drive via your web browser. The "cookies" that Orthomen.com uses do not contain any personal data such as credit card information, passwords, or even your name or address. Cookies simply help us to identify your session on the site. They also help us maintain specific visit information about you without forcing you to register or to give personal information.
However, you should have the option of disabling "cookies" through your browser. This is a function of your computer, so the manner in which to turn the "cookies" off is quite individual and thus, cannot be addressed here. Please realize, if you choose to disable the "cookies" we will not be able to personalize your experience with us at Orthomen.com nor can we guarantee a complete login, registration or shopping experience.
RECEIVING EMAIL PROMOTIONS AND INFORMATION FROM ORTHOMEN.COM
We periodically send emails to our customers to help keep you informed of new products, features and/or special promotions. In every email that we distribute, we include instructions on how to remove [unsubscribe] your email address from the distribution list.
SECURE CREDIT CARD TRANSACTION PROCESSING
Our web site uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption to transmit your credit card information from a secure web page to a secure application on our server. Once on our server, your credit card number is saved only long enough for us to process and approve the transaction. During the final stages of ordering online, you will see an unbroken key or locked padlock at the bottom of your browser window and https:// in the location window at the top of your browser. Both of these indicate that the page you are on is secured using SSL encryption to communicate with our secure web server. Because SSL encryption slows down a web site, it is only used in the final stage of ordering, before and after you enter your credit card information. You will not see these security indicators until you begin the checkout process and indicate that you prefer to order online with a credit card.
