ChainWeavers does not give away, rent or sell our customers' information to anyone for any reason. We do use the information you give us for processing orders, improving the website and for our chainmaille newsletter (Maille Tales). No one can sign you up (unless they have access to your email account). Maille Tales will go out about once a month and will include announcements, sales, new kits and tutorials. Our server has safeguards installed to prevent security breeches attempting to gain access to personal information.
If you're interested in a great browser add-in for indicating the relative security of websites listed in search results, go to SiteAdvisor.com to see the level of information it shows you before click on a link. The Site Advisor add-in identifies websites known to have issues that will either compromise your computer or identity, as well as identify websites that McAfee has scanned found safe.
We use Authorize.net and PayPal for our payment processing. Neither processor exposes or sells your financial information to merchants. Your sensitive financial information is securely stored on their servers. We receive payment from our processors without ever seeing your financial information. Their servers are tested daily for the latest security threats. Industry-Leading Use of Encryption Safeguarding your financial and personal information is one of our most important priorities. That’s why we use these processors to process all purchases which automatically encrypts all sensitive information sent between your computer and their servers.
When registering, logging in and making payments, the server involved verifies that your internet browser is running Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to encrypt your personal information and credit card data. Your sensitive financial information is stored on the payment processor servers and heavily guarded, both physically and electronically. We use a private SSL certificate issued to us by a leading SSL certificate vendor, unlike many websites that use an SSL certificate that is shared by every website stored on that particular server. Our server is also tested daily and certified "secure & hacker-proof" quarterly by a Payment Card Industry (PCI) Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV).
