Information We Collect
We recognize your right to confidentiality and are committed to protecting your privacy. We use the information that we collect on our Web site to provide you with a superior shopping experience and to communicate with you about products, services, and promotions.
Becoming a registered user
You do not have to be a registered user to view theklitch.com web page; however, you will have to register online to place orders or make full use of our services. In order to register, all we need is some basic personal information, like your name and e-mail address.
Making a purchase
If you purchase a product or service from us, our order form asks for information so we can distinguish one John Doe from the other. You must provide your contact information (e.g. name, email, shipping address) so that we may promptly satisfy your order with an order confirmation and shopping notification. Additionally, If we encounter difficulty in processing your order, we will use this information to contact you. You must also provide your credit card information (e.g. billing address, credit card number, expiration date). We use this information strictly for billing purposes.
With your contact information, we can send you a welcome email to verify your username and password. We can also communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to the services you request, and to manage your account. You have the option of managing your communication preferences, and we will contact you in accordance to your wishes. You may not opt-out of non-promotional communications that pertain to your account and order status. If you do not wish to receive these emails, you have the option of deactivating your account.
We realize that our customers trust us to protect their personal information. We take that task seriously. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information. How do we do this? We thought you’d never ask!! We use industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) authentication to guarantee the confidentiality of online transactions made on our site. SSL authentication and encryption of the information that you send to us over the Internet help protect your online transaction information from third party interception.
We never display your full credit card number once you enter into our system. We will only reveal the last four digits of your credit card number for verification purposes. We urge you to protect your own privacy. We recommend that you do not share your password with anyone. We will never contact you to obtain your username and password. To check that your browser is in secure mode, make sure that a “lock” or a “key” icon is displayed in the lower left-hand corner of your browser window. You can also check by looking at the URL bar on top of your browser. This line will typically show the first characters as “https” when a secure connection has been established rather than “http” which indicates a connection that is not secured.
Unfortunately, despite all of our efforts, there is always a risk that third parties unlawfully intercept transmissions. This is the reality with all e-commerce. As a result, we cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit, and you transmit all information at your own risk. We just have to leave to the Feds to catch the cyber criminals.
