Miller Designs believes that with the growth of E-Commerce and online activity, the information collected from web store customers should be kept confidential. We will make reasonable efforts to ensure that information furnished by our customers about themselves will be safeguarded and not be made available to third parties. Online privacy concerns focus on the protection of information which identifies the customer that an individual reasonably expects to be kept private. Information which identifies that customer is information which can be associated with a specific individual or entity, including, for example, a customer's name, address, or telephone number, E-mail address, and information about online activities that are directly linked to them.
It is often a necessity for companies, governments, or other organizations to collect customer identifiable information in order to conduct regular business and offer services to customers. For example, an E-Commerce store service may collect information which identifies the customer, such as name, address, telephone number, and a variety of other information in the course of billing and providing delivery of products ordered by a customer.
Many activities on the Internet follow very familiar methods as physical stores. Similarly, business web sites may ask visitors to supply information about themselves, particularly when information, services or merchandise are requested, but often simply to be able to better target the company's services to the customer's interests and requirements.
Miller Designs policy for protection of customer supplied / obtained information is as follows:
Disclosure: Miller Designs will not sell, trade, or disclose to third parties any information which identifies that customer derived from the purchasing of products from Miller Designs online storefront service -- including customer names and addresses -- without the consent of the customer (except as required by subpoena, search warrant, or other legal process or in the case of imminent physical harm to the customer or others). Collection and Use: Miller Designs will collect and use information which identifies that customer for billing purposes, to provide and change service, to anticipate and resolve problems with your service, or to create and inform you of products and services that better meet your needs. This means that Miller Designs may use your information which identifies that customer, in conjunction with information available from other sources, to market new services to you that we think will be of interest to you, but we will not disclose your customer identifiable information to third parties who want to market products to you.
Customer Choice: A customer may choose not to receive any marketing communications from Miller Designs in connection with Miller Designs online storefront. Upon notification of that choice, Miller Designs will not contact that customer directly with marketing messages about Miller Designs online storefront, and will not use information which identifies that customer obtained from that customer's order forms to contact that customer with marketing messages about any Miller Designs products or services. A customer may choose not to receive such messages by e-mail, by feedback form, by mail, or by telephone.
Collection of Data: Miller Designs collects data about customers only in so far as it relates to the business activities between Miller Designs web store and the customer.
Security: Miller Designs has implemented technology and security features and strict policy guidelines to safeguard the privacy of the information which identifies the customer from unauthorized access or improper use, and we will continue to enhance our security procedures as new technology becomes available. Your information is protected by an industry standard security layer (SSL). Your credit card information is safeguarded by Starfield Corporation which uses Starfield Digital Certificate Security and enhanced PGP protection.
E-mail: The company will not disclose to third parties E-mail communications that are sent to Miller Designs services except as required to process orders or as otherwise authorized by law.
Inappropriate or Malicious Conduct: Miller Designs may also use information which identifies the customer to investigate and help prevent potentially unlawful activity or activity that threatens the server or otherwise violates the customer agreement for a service provided. Malicious activity of crackers and those wishing to release computer viruses and/or malicious code will be reported to both the FBI and NSA.
Account Information: Miller Designs honors requests from customers for account information, for example, name, address, or billing information, and will correct any such information which may be inaccurate. Customers may verify that appropriate corrections have been made.
Children On The Internet: Miller Designs supports all legislation regarding the protection of children from supplying information about themselves that may be detrimental to their well-being. Also, we shall make reasonable efforts to ensure that young teens and minors, who do not have permission to use their parent's / guardian's credit information, do not offer us that information. At this time, we can only inform young teens and minors that they need such permission to offer us that sort of information. To that extent, we do require all potential customers to indicate that they are at least 18 years of age or older. We encourage parents and guardians to obtain software, make use of logon passwords, and to safeguard their credit information, from their children and minors in their custody.
