7. QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS
1. PROTECTING YOUR INFORMATION
The Personal Customer Information you provide -- including your credit card information -- to make purchases from us is secured using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology. We use this SSL technology to prevent such information from being intercepted and read as it is transmitted over the Internet. The encrypted data goes to a secure site where your information is stored on restricted-access computers located at restricted-access sites.
2. SIGNING OUT
To further prevent unauthorized access to your personal information, remember that you should sign out once you have (1) completed your transaction or (2) leave your computer for any reason. Anyone who accesses your computer after you have signed in but before you have signed out may be able to access your information.
3. SAFE SHOPPING PROTECTION
Under commercial law, a credit card issuer cannot make you liable for charges in excess of $50.00 that result from the unauthorized use of your credit card. There are similar commercial laws that relate to debit cards. Exceptions do apply, and you will have to comply with the rules of your credit card or debit card issuer, so please contact your card issuer for further details.
If a credit card or debit card issuer assesses you a fee because of the unauthorized use of your credit card or debit card on our site, Breton SmarTek will reimburse you for such amount up to $50.00. Please contact us at (902)-442-7588 / 1-888-600-7122 for details.
