Privacy & Security
DiscountVacs.com values your business and place the highest level of importance in keeping safe the information you have entrusted with us with to complete your transaction. Security is an integral part of all DiscountVacs.com operations. At DiscountVacs.com we employ many methods of security that work together to keep our customers information safe. This includes of course the credit card processing systems, but also our web, email, and database systems that receive, store, and transmit your personal information.
Your connection to sensitive areas of the DiscountVacs.com website is always transmitted through a Secure Socket Layer server (SSL & TLS). Movement of payment data to the credit authorization network is also encrypted for security and final transmission to the DiscountVacs.com home office for processing is also double encrypted where it is transferred off the network (internet). Unless specifically asked not to do so by the customer, we destroy all hard data if any is used (paper copies). Customer records are only kept in a central intranet server that is not connected to the internet and a single optical backup device. All payment data including credit card information is purged from the order processing system after 30 days unless a customer asks to keep payment information on file.
Steps are taken to secure your personal information and are not lost in our commitment to privacy for our customers. We take extraordinary steps to protect the private information that you have entrusted us with, both physically and virtually. As a matter of policy, we do not sell, give, or trade your private information to any individual or company except for those directly required to complete the sale. We do not send unsolicited email. Your private information, including email address, is not left unprotected on a web or mail server. DiscountVacs.com uses web cookies to maintain state information, shopping cart/products and evaluate our advertising programs. No personally identifiable information is associated with 3rd party cookies or shared with our advertising or charity partners.
