RIPmarine.com respects your right to privacy. RIPmarine.com will not sell your customer information to a third party.
Information Collection and Use
RIPmarine.com is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. RIPmarine.com collects information from you at different points on our website, including when you create a new account and when you make a purchase.
All e-mails sent to RIPmarine.com may be saved and are not confidential. Please do NOT send personal information, including credit card number and billing address, via e-mail.
When placing an order, we request financial information in the form of a credit card number and allow you to edit your billing and shipping information for that order. This information is then used to bill and process the order.
Use by Children
Although RIPmarine.com sells children's products to adults, we do not sell products to children. RIPmarine.com does not grant permission to children under the age of eighteen (18) years old to use our site. Children under the age of eighteen (18) may only use our site with parental or guardian participation.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track your movement and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We utilize multiple, independent warehouses to fulfill orders, outside shipping companies to ship orders and a credit card processing company to bill you for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
RIPmarine.com is committed to preserving the protection of your privacy and personal information.
When our registration/order form asks you to enter sensitive information, such as credit card number and/or billing address, that information is encrypted and protected with Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption software. While on a secure page, such as our order form, most browsers will display a lock or key icon on the status bar at the bottom or top of the browser indicating that the page is secure. Also, in the address window "http" changes to "https" on secure pages.
We maintain all of our servers behind a firewall. Firewalls help protect the information stored on servers from unauthorized computers.
In addition to our use of SSL encryption and firewalls to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information off-line. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. As new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure your information is protected. Finally, the servers we use for storing personal information are kept in a secure environment.
If you have any questions about the security at our website, please e-mail us at info@RIPmarine.com.
