Thank you for visiting Theratape.com We are committed to your online safety while visiting our site. The following information explains how we protect both your privacy and your security while you browse or purchase.
How We Protect Your Credit Card Information
All payment-related pages on the site utilize Extended Validation (EV) SSL encryption, the highest level of security available. When you reach our checkout page, notice how the address bar at the top of your browser turns green and an "s" is added to the "http" in our url. This means that when you pay for a purchase on this website, your payment information is encrypted and then immediately transmitted directly to the payment processor using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL technology is designed to prevent anyone other than the payment processor from viewing or capturing your information. At no time do we or our employees have access to your credit card information other than the type of card used and the last 4 digits of the card number. If you provide your credit card information to us while placing a phone order, we enter the information directly into our encrypted payment page and do not store it in any other manner.
If you click on the GeoTrust seal at the bottom of any page on the site, a window will open confirming our business identity and verifying our use of EV SSL security practices.
We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect against unauthorized access, use, modification or disclosure of any personally identifiable information we control. We also require any third parties to whom we may transfer such information to take comparable steps to protect that security. We employ all industry-recommended technology to protect the security of our site. However, even with the best technology, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your contact information, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from our web sites, and you do so at your own risk.
As part of our commitment to protecting your privacy, Theratape agrees to (1) never share any of your personally indentifiable information with other marketers; and (2) honor your requests not to receive mail, telephone or other solicitations. This policy tells you how we use and protect any information you provide while on our site, as well as your choices for correcting or opting out of our use of your information.
