Privacy & Security

Effective 11/1/01









We offer secure online payment through Yahoo! Store accepting Visa, MasterCard, American Express. We also offer payment through PayPal with Visa, MasterCard, American Express & Discover. All online transactions through Yahoo! Store are handled with industry-standard, 128-bit, SSL encryption.

When you enter your credit card number into the order form, it is transmitted in an encrypted (scrambled) form, then decoded when it gets to us. It is deleted from the Yahoo! Store database after 30 days.

According to CNN, "...on-line credit card use is actually no riskier for consumers than traditional "low-tech" transactions."

We order products online all the time, both as a company and as individuals. When we use a credit card to buy something online, we feel at least as safe as we would using one in a store or restaurant and much safer than ordering by phone.

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.

This site is hosted by Yahoo! Store. Yahoo! hosts the store pages, ordering system, and order data. Yahoo! automatically collects order information but may only use this information in the aggregate. If you accessed this store through Yahoo! Shopping, Yahoo! also automatically collects information about your shopping experience. Please see the Yahoo! Privacy Policy for more information about how Yahoo! uses this information.

Name Address Email address Phone number Credit/Debit Card Information (credit card information is deleted from Yahoo! Store records after 30 days)

On some pages, you can submit information about other people. For example, if you order a gift online and want it sent directly to the recipient, you will need to submit the recipient's address. In this circumstance, the types of personal information collected are:

Your credit card information is transferred to us using Yahoo's secure servers, and is automatically deleted from our system 30 days after our business is concluded.

You will have the opportunity to choose to receive updates on our new products and services. Information you submit on our website will not be used for this purpose unless you grant us permission.

We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.

Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above.

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
