Please be assured that MC Signs uses all reasonable efforts to protect the privacy of its online visitors. As most web sites do, we track the total number of visitors to our site on an anonymous aggregate basis. MC Signs only gathers personally identifiable data when voluntarily submitted by a web site visitor. For example, personally identifiable information may be collected in order to respond to a request for information or to get feedback on the site.
Sensitive information is always stored under a password, thus adding an additional layer of security. When you set up an account with MC Signs, you choose your own password for the account. This password is encrypted which means that even we cannot read your password, so you control who has access to your account. You may change your password at any time.
Credit card information is never stored with your account at MC Signs. It will need to be entered each time you re-order, but we believe the security issue outweighs any minor inconvenience.
Security of information
On receiving an order, we shall send you an email to confirm the order. We shall also send you an email as soon as the order is dispatched. This will not only keep you informed of your order’s progress, but will also alert you if someone is using your account or computer without your permission. If you receive a confirmation for an order you did not place, please Email us immediately at everydayoffice.co.uk. Because the Internet infrastructure is global and it is not possible to predict the routes that information sent over the Internet will take, the information you provide may be transferred temporarily via a route which takes it outside the European Economic Area as it passes between you and us. By submitting your information, you consent to this transfer. Although MC Signs uses all reasonable efforts to keep the details of your order and payment secure, we will not be liable for unauthorised access to information supplied by you unless such access arises as a result of our negligence.
Credit card issue guarantees
Just like in the physical world, credit card purchases are insured through your credit card company over the internet. This final layer of protection from your credit card company limits your liability in the case of fraud and acts as a safety net for everyone doing electronic commerce over the internet. Typically, debit cards are treated differently than credit cards so you should check with your bank. Also, see your credit card company for more information.
Sharing of information
Although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personally identifiable information or private communications will always remain private.
The following describes just some of the ways that your personally identifiable information may be disclosed:
