How do we protect your information?

Securing our Web Server

Our website is maintained on a private, secure server that is scanned on a regular basis for security holes and known vulnerabilities and malware. Information is stored behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of people who have special access rights to our systems. These people are legally bound to keep all of our information confidential.

Securing the Connection

When you connect to our website, every page you access is sent via a secure socket layer (SSL). This means that our website and your browser have a direct, private, encrypted connection to each other.

You know the page you are browsing is secure by the https:// at the beginning of the URL. Most browsers display this in green.

While we do everything we can to protect your information, no security measures are completely effective and we cannot ensure or warrant the security of your personal information.

Securing your Sensitive Information

When you submit an order we open a direct gateway to our payment processing partner to securely collect your credit card or payment information. We do not process or store your credit card or payment information on our servers.

 

Do we Share your information?

We partner with other companies to help us run our business. These partners provide services such as processing credit cards, sending emails on our behalf, and maintaining our web server. These companies are not allowed to use, sell or transfer your personal information and are required to provide reasonable security measures to protect our data.

We may disclose information under the following conditions:

  • If we believe that disclosure is necessary to prevent or respond to fraud, defend our website against attacks or to protect your privacy.
  • If we are compelled to provide information by a court of law or other legal measures.

We will not sell your information.

We may provide aggregate information (Non-Identifiable Information) to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

Compliance

 

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared. - See more at http://consumercal.org In accordance with CalOPPA, we agree to the following:

  • Users can visit our site anonymously.
  • A link to this privacy policy will be clearly displayed in the footer of each page including the homepage.
  • Our Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy' and can easily be found on every page.

You will be notified of any Privacy Policy changes on our Privacy Policy page.

You can change your personal information:

  • By emailing us
  • By calling us
  • By logging in to your account

 

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States' consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.

Do we not let third-parties, including ad networks or plug-ins, collect PII from children under 13.

 

CAN-SPAM Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations. We collect your email address in order to:

  • Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions
  • Process orders and to send information and updates pertaining to orders.
  • Market to our mailing list or continue to send emails to our clients after the original transaction has occurred.

To be in accordance with CAN-SPAM, we agree to the following:

  • Not use false or misleading subjects or email addresses.
  • Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way.
  • Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters.
  • Monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used.
  • Honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly.
  • Allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email.

If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can email us at webmaster@steelsupplyinc.com or follow the instructions at the bottom of each email. We promise to promptly remove you from ALL correspondence.
