Should there be a material change in the categories of information collected at blingstrands.com or a material change in how we use information collected at blingstrands.com (whether a deletion or addition), for a thirty day period after the change we will note deletions with a strike-out and additions in italic type. Further, for this same period we will note [Revised] at the end of the revised sentence or sentences and update the effective date at the bottom of the Privacy & Security Policy. If you are concerned about how your personal information is used, please visit our site often for this and other important announcements about blingstrands.com. If you have submitted your email address to us for email contact, we will notify you should our policy change. You will then have an opportunity to opt-out of any new use of your information.
We have made every effort to ensure that the information transmitted to us online is secure through the use of a secure server. With respect to online sales, the person whose name appears on the card must be the one who places the order. blingstrands.com uses secure sockets layer (SSL) encryption for securing communications and transactions across the Internet. The SSL protocol uses digital certificates to create and secure confidential communications (pip) between the purchaser and our web entity. Data transmitted over an SSL connection cannot be tampered with or forged without the two parties becoming immediately aware of the tampering. A key or padlock icon in the lower corner of the browser window identifies the security mode of a browser. When the browser is running in normal mode, the key looks broken or the padlock looks open. Once an SSL connection has been established, the key becomes whole, or the padlock becomes closed, indicating that the browser is in secure mode. SSL is supported in the vast majority of browsers, which means that almost anyone with a browser can benefit from SSL encryption. In addition, it is our policy not to send your credit card number via email. In fact, this is a practice we recommend you adopt in all of your internet activities.
While we implement the above security measures on this site, you should be aware that 100% security is not always possible.
This Privacy & Security Policy supersedes all prior policies and is effective January 01, 2011
