At Safety Gear HQ your privacy is protected in many ways. First of all our site uses an SSL certificate issued by Go Daddy which encrypts all of the information that you enter when you checkout. As soon as you click the 'SECURE ONLINE' button in checkout, the entire checkout process is secure and encrypted so that other's cannot get your information. You can view our SSL certificate by clicking the Go Daddy logo below:
How can you know for certain that pages you enter are secure? In your browser, you can tell when you are using a secure protocol in a couple of different ways. You will notice that the "http" in the address line is replaced with "https," and you should see a small padlock in the status bar at the bottom of the browser window.
In addition to your checkout information, we also protect your e-mail and phone number as well. Your phone number and e-mail address are asked for during checkout only for our records in case we need to contact you about your order. We do not give this information out so that it can be used to spam your e-mail or otherwise. We have the same opinion of spam e-mail as you do, so unless you 'opt in' to our newsletter or other specials with your e-mail address, you will not be contacted about anything except your order.
For opt-in newletters or specials that we might be running, we like to gather your basic information only to send you our self defense product newsletter or for notification of winning contests we might be running. However, this information will not be shared with anyone else except Safety Gear HQ. It will be kept in a private database and not given out to anyone.
IP Address recognition: For each visitor to our Web site, our Web server automatically recognizes only the consumer's IP address, but not the e-mail address. The information is only recorded in the shopping cart database which is secure and encrypted. This information is for the records of Safety Gear HQ only.
