We collect and store information about every transaction processed through the Big Deals web page so that we can efficiently provide the services demanded by our customers. We use such information to provide or enhance the services we make available to our customers, to enhance our ability to communicate with our customers about additional services they may find of value, to satisfy our legitimate business interests (including performing trend analysis and market studies) and to comply with government regulations.
As we collect and use information about our customers, we may contract with third party service providers (“Vendors”) to assist us in processing that information. These Vendors are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are restricted from using the information for any purpose other than helping to provide services to our customers. Some of the information collected by Big Deals is personal data or data which relates to an identifiable person. Examples of personal data are names, addresses, e-mail addresses, credit card numbers and telephone numbers. We never sell information to third parties that could be used to specifically identify an individual customer or group of customers. Anonymized data, with all names, addresses and other personally identifiable information removed, is sometimes shared with third parties. Finally, we do provide personal data to government agencies as required by law or regulation. In addition to the uses of the information described in the paragraphs above, we collect telephone numbers and e-mail addresses in the event that we have to contact the customer to resolve a question or provide status information.
Security of the Site
Our website uses SSL or "Secure Sockets Layer", an industry standard security protocol. When you click on "[Purchase Gift Certificate]", you will connect with our secure server. SSL sends your browser information that "encrypts" your order, changing all the information that you send back into a code that is extremely difficult to decipher.
E-mail is NOT a secure means to send information, as it is not encrypted. We strongly encourage you to use a secure ordering system when purchasing goods/services online.
