At CraftAmerica.com we use this technology with our shopping cart in an effort to
ensure that your transactions are conducted safely and to maintain the security
of the information you provide us when placing an order.
We collect no personal information
about you when you visit this Website, unless you order from
us. Then, the information we collect is only the minimal information
necessary to process and deliver your order to you. We
do not share this information with third parties.
Cookies are used by us to
keep track of your shopping cart. When you use our Internet
shopping site, you are sent a cookie containing the name (ID number) of a
shopping cart. Each time you select an item to purchase, that item is added to
the shopping cart. When you are done with your shopping, the checkout page lists
all the items in the shopping cart tied to that cookie. Without cookies, you
would have to keep track of all the items you want to buy and type them into the
checkout page or buy each item, one at a time.
The cookies that we use are not
permanently stored on your computer. When you close your browser,
the cookie is deleted. You are given the option of storing your information for future purchases when you go through the shopping
cart check out routine, but we never store your credit card information for
future purchase on the web server.
Your confidentiality and security are of
paramount concern to us. We want your visit to our web site to be safe, secure
and worry free.
