It is AwardsPlus' policy to respect and protect your privacy. We do not sell, share, rent, loan or transfer any personal information regarding our customers to any unrelated third parties. Any information you give us about yourself is held in confidence and will not be used in ways to which you have not consented.
Gathering and Use of Personal Information
In order to fill your order, you may be requested to provide contact and/or credit card information. If we have trouble processing an order, a request, or completing a delivery, this information will be used to contact you. When you order, we need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address, daytime telephone number, fax number, credit card number, and expiration date. This allows us to process and fulfill your order and to notify you of your order status. We personalize your shopping experience by using your purchases to help shape our product selection. We also monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us develop the design and layout of the store and create the best shopping experience we can for our users.
Strong precautions are taken to protect the information of the users of our site. When users submit sensitive information via the site, that information is protected both online and off-line. We take credit card information security seriously. Your information is encrypted and is protected utilizing the industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption software. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also protect user- information off-line. Only those of our employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our account or customer service representatives) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, our employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.
