The Way We Use Information
Now that we´ve discussed the information we collect about you, you´re probably wondering what we do with it all. Allow us to take a few moments and answer this very important question.
IP Addresses and Header Information
Although the information passed to us in an HTTP header is of a non-personal nature, many of the things we can track are vital to our ability to bring you a high quality website that you can enjoy and navigate easily. Some of the ways we use the information we gather from headers are: · We compile and analyze log file data to gain a cross-section representation of our visitors. This allows us to build websites that suit the needs of our customers based on their unique browser, operating system and screen resolution choices. · We compile and analyze log file data to show us where our visitors come from. This information helps our marketing department invest our time and resources in only the most cost effective and efficient advertising initiatives. · We use the visitors IP Address as a temporary identifier to store the history of the visit and the contents of the visitors shopping cart.
Solid Signal uses the personal information it collects about its visitors and about people other than its visitors, in very specific and meaningful ways that directly relate to the manner in which it was received. Below are detailed the ways that we use information: · If a visitor emails us regarding an issue, our staff will reply to the email with the intention of providing the information requested by the visitor. Once the question or request for information is resolved, the visitor email will be archived for up to 1 year and then destroyed. At no time are the email addresses in this group sold, or used for any other purpose whatsoever. If that visitor were to email us and include personally identifiable information about another person, that other persons information would likewise be used for the purpose at hand and ultimately destroyed. · If a visitor fills out one of our response forms regarding a question or request for information, our staff will reply to the request via email or phone, depending on the customers wish (as specified in the form.) Once the question or request for information is resolved, the visitors response form data will be archived for up to 1 year and then destroyed. If a response form contains a check box option for inclusion in future promotional mailings, and the user hasn´t opted out of the check-box, the customers information will be logged in our promotional email database. If not, we will at no time use the customers information for any other purpose whatsoever. For details of our policy regarding acceptable uses of visitor email addresses, please see below. · The information collected at the point of purchase from a visitor is used by us to efficiently and effectively fulfill that order to the customer. We also log the customers acceptance of our sales terms, if applicable. Making a purchase from a Solid Signal website will cause you to receive several functional and necessary emails which are detailed below. A customer may also receive a phone call as a result of an order to verify essential information. Such as credit card billing address information used for transaction verification. · We use 3rd party service providers to administer financial transactions and shipment of purchased products. It is necessary for us to provide these companies with your personally identifiable information in order to fulfill the requested purchase and or services. These 3rd party providers are prohibited from using your personal information for any secondary purposes.
Solid Signal Customer E-mail Policy
One of the most widely discussed facets of online privacy deals with unsolicited email messages affectionately known as SPAM. Solid Signal does not SPAM its customers and recognizes that SPAM is a harmful and unwanted nuisance. We do, however, send email messages to our customers under certain circumstances and would like to explain the rules that govern our decision to do so.
Email Messages Resulting From an Order
· A customer who orders product from us online (as opposed to phoning their order into our call center) will receive an email confirmation within a few moments that their order was successfully processed. This additional mailing is the only way in which orders placed online and offline differ. · A customer who places an order with us is agreeing to receive a certain number of informational emails that we feel are a critical part of a confirmed order. The number of e-mails we send are the absolute minimum that we need to send to satisfy our needs, including shipping & tracking confirmation and the provision of a sales receipt to the customer. · If the customer chooses to unsubscribe they will not receive any more direct e-mails. Unless they purchase another product from us. Removal from the email mailing list can be accomplished after any mailing by following the unsubscribe instructions included with the mailing or logging into their Solid Signal Account.
Email Messages Resulting From Newsletter Sign Up
· When you place an order or sign up for our newsletters and special offers emails you will receive occasional emails sent by us. You may opt-out of these optional communications at any time by accessing your account online and changing preferences or by unsubscribing directly from the email communications themselves. We do not share your email address with any outside parties; however, we do send promotional offers on behalf of our partners.
· If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend’s name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. Solid Signal does not store this information and the email is for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email.
Our Commitment To Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. · In many cases, we verify the accuracy of the individually identifiable information by contacting our customers and confirming the information we have after an online sale. This process covers all of our individually identifiable information that is collected and stored because all of this type of information is sales related. · We utilize SSL Encryption technology to protect your online order and personal information from theft and misuse when you are connected to our secure server. VeriSign digitally signs their secure Internet servers, so you can be sure we are who we represent ourselves to be. Our 128-Bit SSL encryption certificate is provided by GoDaddy.

Personally identifiable information from your communications sent to us via an unsecured means (such as email) may be intercepted by a third party and may not remain secure.
· Please be aware that we may be required to disclose information about you to the government or third parties under certain circumstances as required by law such as to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or subpoena. We cooperate fully with all law enforcement inquiries and with all third parties to enforce their intellectual property or other rights.
