Furnishmyplace.com understands your concerns regarding Internet privacy and security. We know these are very important and that is why we take special care to safeguard the confidentiality and security of your information. We encrypt all of your personal information including credit card number, name, and address, so that it cannot be read as the information travels over the Internet.
How does our secure server work?
- Starting Your Order
Every order you place with us is secure. All data submitted via the checkout form is encrypted using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption.
- Making a Positive ID
After you’ve selected items to purchase, you’ll be prompted to “proceed to checkout.” At this point, your browser looks for a site certificate to confirm that it is communicating with our store. Once a positive ID is made, your order continues.
- Entering Secure Mode
At this point, your computer and our server begin communicating in secure mode, sending data back and forth in an encrypted format. We are ready to ask you for your credit card information. The encryption features of browser software are exceptionally powerful and ensure the security of this data as it is transmitted to our server.
- Your Order Is Complete
Next, your credit card numbers are placed in a database on the secure web server. A user must have login privileges on the web server (requiring a password) to be able to access the database, which also requires a password.
What information do we collect?
When you visit our site, our server automatically collects non-personally identifiable information – your internet service provider address and information on the pages you access on our site. In addition, we store information you provide when you make a purchase or enter your e-mail address. We also collect information when you volunteer to complete a survey.
How do we collect the information?
Like many Internet sites, we use “cookies” to recognize returning customers. Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. We use the cookies to recognize your preferences and to keep track of items you’ve added to your shopping cart.
What do we do with the information we collect?
- By evaluating how customers use our site, we can offer better content, easier navigation, and better checkout services.
- If you join our e-mail list, we will offer you updates about new products and services, discounts and special promotions. You can join or leave our mailing list at any time. Customers who supply us with a telephone number will only receive calls from us pertaining to orders they have placed.
- We use customer information in processing transactions both within our company and with third party vendors. Our third party vendors are, by contract, restricted from using your information in any way, except to help us provide the products and services we offer you on our site.
- We may provide customer information (but not credit card information) to affiliate companies, partners or organizations from time to time.
