Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy the following notice explains the information we collect, how it is used, how it is safeguarded, and how to contact us if you have any concerns.
This is a secure site. The shopping cart and back-office security are performed by Yahoo! Store. Yahoo performs this task for approximately one in every eight stores on the Internet. The lock icon appears at the bottom of your screen when you click the Checkout button.
You are only asked for personal information at checkout. The information you provide is used in the following way:
Name and Address. This information is used as defaults for billing and shipping information during the checkout process. We also use this information to confirm the identification of callers when calling in to return items.
Telephone Number. This information is used to contact a customer if an urgent problem arises with their order, for calling back customers to our service department in case of disconnection, and for caller identification.
E-mail Address: This is the unique identifier for each customer and is used by customers with the password to gain access to their personal and sales information. It is also used during order processing to notify customers of order status and customer service issues. We never sell your email to others. We do provide mailing addresses of folks who buy something to the non-profit Cornell Lab of Ornithology because we believe strongly in their mission. They own 1% of OnlineNatureMall.com. Please contact Sales at OnlineNatureMall.com if you do NOT want Cornell to have your address.
Shipping and Billing Address Information. This information is used for processing orders and is saved with each order as a "receipt". You view all previous orders by logging on using your e-mail Address and Password.
Order Information. This includes item, price, shipping, and tax information. This information can be used elsewhere in the system to provide references to other customers (e.g., "Those who purchased this item also bought...").
This site will notify customers about the status of orders they have placed or returns. Customers may ask to be notified of special or new offerings that might interest them. Customers will be given the opportunity to opt-out of any such non-essential notifications.
IP Address Use
As with all web sites, our server logs all traffic by the IP address of each user. This information is used by our technical support staff for server administration and broad demographic reporting.
This Web site does use "good" cookies. These are safe -- we are not spying on you. Fundamentally, cookies are small data files your Web browser uses to help sites remember who you are. They were invented by Netscape over a decade ago to make Web surfing more efficient.
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, that is sent to your browser from a web site's computer and stored on your computer's hard drive. Each web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
Contacting the Web Site
If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of this site, or your dealings with this Web site, you can contact customer service via e-mail at Sales@OnlineNatureMall.com
