Privacy and Security Notice

Depending on what you do when you visit any web site, you are providing information about your visit to the site's owners. This includes Gilderspastewax, Gilderspaste.com and others. We value privacy and think you do too, so we want you to have the information you need to make your own decisions about your personal privacy. When you visit or supply information to any web site, we think it's a good idea for you to first understand what that site's privacy policies are. If the site doesn't tell you, don't hesitate to ask.

The bottom line at www.gilderspaste.com is that we use the information that we get from your visit for internal tracking purposes, to make Gilderspaste.com as useful and interesting to you as we can, and to respond to and fulfill your requests for information, products or other services. Except as specifically noted, we do not use the information that we collect from Gilderspaste.com for any other purpose or share it with any third party.


Security
How we protect the security of your personal information:
The security of your personal information is very important to us and we are committed to protecting the information we collect. Gilderspaste.com uses firewalls and has security measures in place at its host's physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our web site. We also work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. We reveal only the last five digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

Privacy Notice
Information we collect on Gilderspaste.com may be used to enhance your use of this web site in the following way:

We use standard web server log files to help us count visitors and evaluate our site's technical capacity. We use this information to find out how many people visit Gilderspaste.com, help us arrange the pages in the most user-friendly way, keep the site browser-friendly, and to make our pages more useful to our visitors. We record information on site traffic but not information on individual visitors to our site, so no information about you in particular will be kept or used.

When you request information or other services, we use your e-mail address and any other information you give us to provide you with the information or other services you requested until you ask us to stop (using the 'unsubscribe' instructions provided with each e-mail and/or on the site where you signed up and/or as we otherwise provide), or until the information or service is no longer available. We will not use your address or other information to provide you with any unsolicited message or information (unless that is part of the service you are requesting).
