SECURITY AND PRIVACY INFORMATION SECURE ORDERING
Your online credit card transactions are secure with TheSwordDepot.net. We use Secure Socket Layering (SSL), the industry-standard encryption technology that ensures safe Internet transmission of your personal information. When the letters "http" in the URL change to "https," the "s" indicates you are in a secure area employing SSL; also, your browser may give you a pop-up message that you're about to enter a secure area.
Making a credit card purchase is just as safe on our Web site as it is by telephone.
To help us achieve our goal of providing the highest quality products and services, we use information from our interactions with you and other customers, as well as from other parties. Because we respect your privacy, we have procedures to ensure that your personal information is handled in a safe, secure, and responsible manner.
The Information We Collect
Whenever you shop with TheSwordDepot.net, we obtain from you the information we need to complete your transaction. This may include your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address. If you use a credit or debit card or pay by check, it will include your account number.
How We Use The Information We Collect
We use the information we collect for various purposes, including:
- to complete your purchase transactions;
- to provide the services you request;
- to send you our catalogs and other offerings by mail;
- to keep you informed about the status of your orders;
- to identify your product and service preferences, so we can notify you of new or additional products, services,and promotions that might be of interest to you;
- to notify you of product recalls or provide other information concerning products you have purchased; and to improve our merchandise selections, customer service, and overall shopping experience.
Please note that many promotions and mailings are completed well in advance, so you may continue to receive some offers after you ask us to stop sharing your information. We appreciate your patience in giving us time to carry out your request.
Cookies and How We Use Them
A "cookie" is a small data file stored by your Web browser on your computer's hard drive. It allows us to recognize your computer (but not specifically who is using it) upon entering our site by associating the identification numbers in the cookie with other customer information you have provided us. That customer information is stored on our secured database.
Accepting cookies through your Web browser is your personal choice. You can still shop and purchase from TheSwordDepot.net even if you set your browser to disable cookies.
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act took effect on April 21, 2000. It imposes certain requirements on Web sites directed at children under 13 that collect information on those children, and on Web sites that knowingly collect information on children under 13.
We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 13 on our Web site, and our online sweepstakes are restricted to entrants who are at least 18 years old.
No one under the age of 15 should submit any personal information to this or any other Web site without the consent of a parent or guardian.
Online Account Registration
To make online shopping faster and easier, you may register with TheSwordDepot.net. As a registered customer, you only have to enter your shipping addresses and billing information once; they will be securely stored with us for your future use. Using your name and a password of your choice, you may access your account online at any time to add, delete, or change information.
If you are using a public computer, we strongly encourage you to LOG OUT at the conclusion of your session. Your information will still be stored with us but it will not be accessible to anyone else from that computer.
You will receive promotional e-mails from us only if you have asked to receive them. Each time you receive an e-mail from TheSwordDepot.net, you will be given the opportunity to "opt-out" or stop receiving them.
If you choose to "opt-out," we will stop sending you e-mails. Please note, however, that some e-mail promotions are prepared well in advance, so you may continue to receive offers after you have chosen to "opt-out." We appreciate your patience in giving us time to carry out your request.
