How You Can Control the Use of Your Personal Information


Do not share your Promaster.com password with anyone. Other than on this Site, Promaster.com will never ask you for your password. How We Protect the Security of Your Personal Information
The security of your personal information is very important to us. In our efforts to protect your online transactions, we use a technology called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). If your browser is capable of SSL (and most are), your personal information will be automatically encrypted, or encoded, before it is sent over the Internet.


Promaster.com has also obtained a digital certificate from Verisign, Inc., a leading provider of Internet trust services. When you enter a secure portion of this Site (which is any page containing any of your personal information), an image of a closed lock or a solid key should appear in the bottom bar of your browser window. If you click on this image, a small popup window displaying site security information will appear. This certificate guarantees that your personal information is being transmitted in secure (encrypted) form to a Promaster.com Web server, not to some unknown or unauthorized server.

Ultimately, your personal information is protected by the password you created when you signed up for an account at Promaster.com (or another password you chose after changing a previous password). Please keep this password confidential. No Customer Service Associate or any other representative of Promaster.com will ever ask you for your password.

The confidentiality of your password is yours to protect. You may change it anytime by going to My Account. Log in with your email address and password, then click "Change Name, Email & Password" and enter a new password.

Personal information that we maintain is subject to physical, administrative, and technical controls. When we do have to collect your most sensitive personal information, such as Social Security Numbers, we will protect its confidentiality, prohibit its unlawful disclosure, and limit access to authorized personnel only. Cookies and Other Computer Information

You can choose to browse on Promaster.com without cookies. However, without these identifier files you will not be able to complete a purchase or take advantage of certain features of the Site. These features include storing your shopping cart for later use and providing a more personalized shopping experience. Each browser is different, so check your browser?s "Help" menu to learn how to change your cookie preferences.

We also collect certain technical information from your computer each time you request a page during a visit to Promaster.com. This information may include your Internet Protocol (IP) address, your computer's operating system, browser type and the address of a referring website, if any.
