Newsletters, Special Offers, Account Updates and Opting Out
Securita will occasionally send to customers or users of this Site, letters or announcements, which contain important information about the Site and service offerings which we believe to be of value to you. In order to do this, we may enhance or merge the information we collect on the Site with data we receive from third parties for purposes of marketing our products or services.

As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and click stream data.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.
Securita uses, a third party provider (“Provider”) for the shopping cart functions of its website. Provider uses browser “cookies” for customer sessions. A cookie is a small file stored by the browser which can only be read by the same server that set the cookie. Provider does not store any sensitive information, such as credit card numbers or passwords, within the cookies it uses.
- When Provider creates a shopping cart for a customer, it will set a cookie to associate the customer with a particular shopping cart. There are several different situations, in addition to adding products to a cart, that will cause a shopping cart to be created, including registered customer log-in, or coming to the store from an associate link. If the customer has cookies disabled, the shopping cart will be linked to the customer’s IP address.
- If a registered customer logs in, a cookie is created that tells Provider which customer is logged in. This cookie is a “session” cookie, which means it will expire as soon as the customer closes their browser, or does not do anything on the store Website for an extended period of time, or if the customer completes an order.
- When a customer selects tax, shipping, or payment method options, and then clicks on Checkout on the main shopping cart screen, these selections are stored in a cookie. This cookie allows Provider to “remember” the customer’s selections if the customer returns to the store to place another order. The cookie will expire one year from the date it was created. If the customer’s browser does not allow cookies, the “memory” feature will not be available.
- When a customer enters their shipping and billing information on the Billing screen and clicks Submit This Order to complete the order, Provider sets another cookie. This cookie contains the billing address (and the shipping address if a separate one is used) that the customer used. It does not contain any credit card information. This cookie is set to expire one year from the date it was created. If the customer returns to the store from the same computer within this time, Provider will detect and read the cookie and the customer will not have to re-enter the address information. If cookies are disabled in a customer’s browser, this “memory” feature will not be available to that customer.
Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs)
Securita may employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective.
Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Securita does not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personally identifiable information.
Securita may use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. If you would like to opt-out of these emails, please see “Choice and Opt-out.”
Links to Other Sites
Our Site contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by Securita. Please be aware that, Securita, is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Website that collects personally identifiable information.

Access to Personally Identifiable Information
If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may correct, update, delete or deactivate it by by emailing our Customer Support email@example.com or by contacting us by telephone at (888) 279-1956.
The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) on our order forms, PayPal, our payment service provider encrypts that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). Once your information reaches PayPal it resides on a server that is heavily guarded both physically and electronically. PayPal servers sit behind an electronic firewall and are not directly connected to the internet, so your private information is available only to authorized computers.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can send email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Securita reserves the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Site. In any such case, we will disclose only the information necessary to comply with the law, judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process, or which is necessary to protect our rights.
In the event Securita goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your personally identifiable information will likely be among the assets transferred. You will be notified via a prominent notice on our Site at least thirty (30) days prior to any such change in ownership or control of your personal information.
