Privacy Policy

RIPmarineā€™s Privacy Policy

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.

E-mail

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.

Order

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.

Cookies

RIPmarine.com uses cookies to enable your shopping experience at RIPmarine.com. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer if your web browser permits. This information cannot be accessed by other websites. These cookies enable us to identify you while shopping at RIPmarine.com and allow us to maintain your shopping cart (which is only stored on our servers). To shop at RIPmarine.com, you must set your web browser to accept cookies.

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.

Log Files

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.

Sharing

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.

Security

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.
