How we safeguard your information
Our online store includes many safeguards so that you can enjoy your shopping experience without having to worry about credit card transactions. When you submit sensitive information via our website, your information is protected both online and offline.
The Backdesigns.com website makes use of Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt credit card and billing information while it is being transmitted to Backdesigns.com. We use Comodo™ as our SSL provider and to verify that Backdesigns.com is a secure site. Most browsers (for example, Internet Explorer) provide clear visual symbols to let you know whether or not they are in secure mode. Look for a locked key or closed padlock in to indicate a secure mode. Also, in secure mode, the address will begin "https://". The "s" stands for secure. After your order is received, we protect all of your private information, including your order, behind a network security system called a "firewall." Only select staff has access to this information, and then only enough to service your order.
What information we collect and why
We collect personal information to process and fulfill your order, to provide you with information regarding your order, and to enhance our services to you.
We do not sell or rent any information to any party for any reason.
We may share or disclose this information to comply with legal requirements, to protect the rights of BackDesigns.com, or in special circumstances to protect the personal safety of our employees or the public. Our goal is to ensure that your personal and payment information remains secure and your privacy is always respected.
Billing and shipping information
During the checkout process we ask for certain personal information (name, address, e-mail, telephone number and credit card information) which is necessary to process your order and ship it to you. As necessary, we share your order information with trusted third-party companies (such as our credit card processor and delivery services) that assist us in fulfilling your order. We require that third parties hold your information in the strictest confidence.
Occasionally, we send promotional emails to subscribers or customers. Users may unsubscribe at any time by visiting our Contact Us page and sending us a message, or by clicking "Unsubscribe" at the bottom of any promotional email you receive.
We work with a trusted third-party company to transmit our emails. This company employs high levels of data security around this information and keeps it in strict confidence. The company that handles the transmission of our email newsletters cannot use the email addresses for any use other than to send our newsletters.
What if we're sold?
In the unlikely event that BackDesigns.com is sold, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information may be one of the transferred assets.
