ID Card Systems, Inc. has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this Web site: www.IDCardSystem.com.
We are committed to protecting your privacy. All information that is collected on this site (including your contact information, credit card information, databases, card designs and image files that you upload) is stored on our secure servers. We do not share or make this information available to third parties (except as noted below).
In order to use this Web site, a user must first complete the registration form. During registration, a user is required to give contact information (such as name and e-mail address). We use this information to contact the user about services on our site for which he has expressed interest.
We request information from the user to be used for order processing including contact information (such as name, e-mail, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number and expiration date). This information is used for shipping and billing purposes. If we have trouble processing an order, the information is used to contact the user.
Third Party Intermediaries
We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each end every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.
This Web site takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the Web site, their information is protected both online and offline. When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry – SSL.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. All employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our users’ information is protected. Finally, our servers are stored in a secure environment in a locked facility.
Notification of Changes
If, however, we are going to use the users’ personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, we will notify users via e-mail. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. However, if users have opted out of all communication with the site, or deleted/deactivated their account, then they will not be contacted, nor will their personal information be used in this new manner. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our Web site notifying users of the change. In some cases where we post a notice we will also e-mail users, who have opted to receive communications for us, notifying them of the changes in our practices.
