SALES TRANSACTION SECURITY
Protecting your Order. LabelGear.com pledges a safe and worry-free shopping experience. We use the industry standard for Internet security, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL 128-bit) encryption to scramble your personal and credit card information as it travels over the Internet during the checkout process, ensuring the privacy of your information. We protect all of your personal information, including your name, address, password AND credit card information.
Secure Browser: All orders are performed within a secure browser window using the https Internet protocol. When you click "Check Out" from the LabelGear.com shopping cart, the "http" portion of LabelGear.com's web site address changes to "https." The "s" stands for secure. In addition, both Internet Explorer and Netscape use special symbols to indicate that you're in a Web site's secure area. Some browsers also let you know that you're moving in or out of a secure area by notifying you with a special pop-up window that requires you to click "OK" before continuing.
PERSONAL INFORMATION WE GATHER OR TRACK
Registration. When you register with LabelGear.com you create a user profile. In the profile, LabelGear.com asks for your name, e-mail address, a user selected password and other information. Once you are a registered user you can update your profile and may be able to provide other preferential information such as Address and other user preferences.
Order Forms When you place an order LabelGear.com asks you to provide us with contact information, such as name, billing address, shipping address, e-mail address, telephone number and a valid credit card number. We require this information to process your order. Other non-required information we might request includes demographic information and/or purchasing habits so that we can provide a more personalized experience.
IP Addresses. LabelGear.com uses the IP addresses of our visitors to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our web site and to analyze traffic patterns on our web site (for instance, the number of unique visitors to our web site). Although IP information must be logged for these purposes, we do not link your IP address to your other personal identifying information, except when cooperating with investigations involving fraudulent or other illegal activity.
Cookies. LabelGear.com uses software tags called "cookies" to identify customers when they visit our site. Cookies are stored on your computer, not on our site. Most cookies are "session cookies" which means that they are automatically deleted at the end of each visit to our web site. Some cookies remain across sessions. In addition to our cookies, some advertisers or web sites that maintain links on our site may also use their own cookies.
A cookie itself does not have the ability to automatically collect personal information about you. A cookie can store certain information that identifies your computer to us so that you don't have to re-enter information as frequently when you use our site and so we can personalize your visit to our site. Your browser can be set up to accept or reject cookies. It is important to note that if you choose to reject cookies you will not be able to take advantage of certain features on our site.
Surveys. From time to time we may invite visitors to participate in a survey so that we can better understand our customers. Participation in a survey is voluntary, and therefore you have a choice whether or not to disclose this information.
HOW PERSONAL INFORMATION IS USED
Personalization. We sometimes use collected information to provide you with a more personalized shopping experience while visiting LabelGear.com. For instance, past items purchased or browsed may result in you seeing a special screen or advertisement of a product in which we believe you may be interested.
E-mail. If you provide us with your e-mail address, register as a customer, or make a purchase from us, we will occasionally send you e-mail or standard mail with recommendations or notices of new products and/or special offers. These offers may include information about selected paid advertisers. However, at no time will your e-mail address or other personal information be revealed to these paid advertisers unless you provide consent or choose to conduct business with them of your own accord. If you do not wish to receive such mailings from us, please let us know by sending an e-mail to email@example.com. Be sure to provide the e-mail address and/or physical address that you wish to be opted-out from.
Referral Programs. We sometimes request that our customers give us the e-mail address of someone else that they think might be interested in our web site, a particular offer or article. We treat the privacy of these referrals with the same respect we treat our registered users.
HOW PERSONAL INFORMATION IS SHARED
LabelGear.com does not sell, rent or trade your personal information with unaffiliated third parties. LabelGear.com, SureThing.com, and MVD.com are all part of MicroVision Development, and are therefore not third-parties. We do sometimes share information with appropriate third parties as outlined below:
Service Providers. Service providers are third parties who perform services in our behalf, such as processing and fulfilling orders. In such cases, we provide only the information required to complete the transaction. By contract, the third party is not permitted to sell, rent or share this information.
Business Partners. When one or more of our business partners co-sponsor a service, product, promotion and/or contest, we may share some or all of the information collected in connection with such service, product, promotion or contest with the co-sponsors. If you do not want your information to be shared, you will be able to choose not to allow the transfer by not using or signing up for that particular service, product, promotion or contest.
Other Exceptions. We reserve the right to disclose your personal information to comply with legal process; to protect the company's rights; to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of LabelGear.com; to investigate fraud, intellectual property infringements or other activity that is illegal or may expose us to legal liability.
