Sparkfactor Privacy Policy

 PRIVACY

General

Sparkfactor respects each and every one of our customers’ right to Privacy. At no time will any personal information given to Sparkfactor (i.e. name, home address, home or work phone numbers, purchase history, etc.) will be sold or transferred to any other party. We have built our reputation on service and taking care of our customers beyond their expectations, and we will continue to provide these levels of service for many years to come.

 

Mailing List

We have a mailing list and have forms on our site in which we ask visitors for contact information (such as their email address). We use contact data from our forms to contact the users and give information about our company. No information entered on our site will be shared with other companies. The customer’s contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary. Users may choose not to receive future mailings from us by deleting their names from our mailing list.

Our Commitment to Data Security

Sparkfactor wants to ensure the security of your personal and financial information while shopping on our web site. Please be aware that no transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as 100% secure, but for this reason we employ strong security measures to protect your personal information to the greatest possible extent. SSL is a set of rules followed by computers connected to the Internet. These rules include encryption, which guards against eavesdropping; data integrity, which assures that your communications aren’t tampered with during transmission; and authentication, which verifies that the party actually receiving your communication is who they are claimed to be. In addition to our SSL technology, we urge you to close your browser window after shopping online to ensure you are logged out of your visit and/or online account. This is especially important when you are sharing a computer, or using a computer with public access.
