What we do with the information we gather

As you know, when you order we need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number, and expiration date. This is the only way we can process your order and we use your e-mail address to notify you of your order status and to supply you with the tracking number of your packages.

We may also use this information to notify you about special sales and exclusive deals on items we are selling on the site. In addition, occasionally it is important for us to notify our customers of functionality changes to the Web site, new services, and special offers we think you'll find valuable. If you would rather not receive this information, please send an e-mail to [email protected] with "remove" as the subject.

Security

If you are concerned about protecting your information in an on-line transaction, and most people are, you can rest easy. We use state of the art computer encryption technology and incorporated it into our shopping system. When you place orders on the Hobby People web site, we offer the use of a secure server. The secure server software (SSL) encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. Furthermore, all of the customer information we have is protected against unauthorized access through the use of government-level security and firewalls.

Hobby People may occasionally share portions of our customer postal mailing list with quality companies that are trusted and approved and have products and services that you may be interested in. Hobby People does not sell or rent your personal information to others. Hobby People will not sell or rent your e-mail address to any other company or individual. If our policy changes, we will post that information to this page so that you are always aware of the status of our privacy policy.
