As a matter of policy, we do not, have not, and will never sell, or rent any information about any customers to any third party. Period. And we do not store credit card info.
Information & data we collect & how it is used
We only collect sufficient personal information about you to fill your order(s) and provide customer service, including:
A telephone# is recommended for the shipping carrier, but not required, and is not used for any other purpose than to contact you regarding delivery or for customer service.
Like many websites, Znovelties.com logs & analyzes information which is submitted through our servers in aggregate. By doing this, we are able to improve the overall shopping experience by tracking not only how a person found our site, but also what pages were viewed once there, among other things. The information is collected as a whole and is not user specific. In other words, we don't associate any individual to specific searches, click paths, pageviews etc.
Website security & credit card transactions
First things first, we do not store any credit card data. Nor do we have access to credit card data while it is being processed between your computer & our processer. When it comes to securing your sensitive credit card information we take PCI compliance serious. All orders through our website utilize industry standard SSL technology (Secure Socket Layers) which encrypt your credit card information while it is being submitted from your computer to Authorize.net, the industry leading credit card merchant. While checking out at our site you will note that your address bar change from http://... to https:// indicating that your session is secure. At no time do any employees at Z Novelties have access to your credit card information unless it is given by phone, in which case it is not retained or stored for any reason.
Furthermore, when you use a credit card in our secure checkout we utilize AVS technology, (Address Verification Service), which confirms that the billing address entered matches
the address on file with your credit card company. ZNovelties.com also requires the CVC2 or CVV2 number (located on the back of your card) for all credit card orders, giving added security when an individual is not available for a signature. Along with other measures, these help to secure & protect your information.
Text Based Cookies
As with virtually all websites, we stores a small text file on your computer called a "cookie". These allow our server to keep track of the items in your shopping cart. These do not contain personally identifiable information about you and can not be read by any other website or server. We do not store payment information.
