This privacy policy discloses the privacy practices for www.terrycosta.com. This privacy policy applies solely to information collected by this website. It will notify you of the following:

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

We ask users to register on TerryCosta.com in order to make a purchase, receive TerryCosta.com's monthly mailings or access the site's message board. The following information is required for registration: first and last name, E-mail address, and password.

We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to process or ship an order.

Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about specials, new products or services, or changes to this privacy policy.

When you make a purchase, we require that you also provide your shipping and billing address, phone number and credit card information (if paying by credit card). This information is stored in a secured database, only accessible to employees with access rights to this information. TerryCosta.com makes every effort to protect your online order information using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology.

Additionally, TerryCosta.com logs your Internet Protocol Address (IP). An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your PC every time you browse the Internet. Information from IP addresses is used for system administration, to examine overall traffic trends, troubleshooting, etc. This information is used only in the aggregate form. IP addresses are not linked to any personally identifiable information, meaning the user session is tracked but the user is anonymous.

How secure is transaction information?

Your information is secure with TerryCosta.com! We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Protecting your order information is a priority. TerryCosta.com makes every effort to protect your online order information using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology.

SSL encrypts your order information to avoid the decoding of that information by anyone, and protects sensitive information transmitted. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

To check the security of your connection, look at the lower left-hand corner of your browser window after accessing the server. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending on your browser), then SSL is active. You can also double check by looking at the URL line of your browser. When accessing a secure server, the first characters of the site address will change from "http" to "https". Some versions of firewalls don't permit communication through secure servers. In that case, you will be unable to connect to the server (and you won't have to worry about placing an order through an unsecured connection).

If you cannot access a secure server for any reason, please feel free to place your order by phone.
