At STARLESS RIVER, your privacy is our priority. We are committed to protecting your privacy at all times, in all situations.
The information we collect about you when you become a member or place an order is only used to process your orders and to provide a more personalized experience on our site. However, to assure your security, we do not store any financial information. Our site uses a 128 bit encrypted SSL to increase the security of our customer's information. However, STARLESS RIVER do not guarantee complete security on stored information.
How Do We Use the Information We Collect?
When you become an STARLESS RIVER member, we ask you to fill out a form that requests your name, address and e-mail address as well as some demographic information such as gender and date of birth. Your name and address information is used solely to process orders unless your prior consent is given. Without your consent, this information will NEVER be sold, given, rented or traded to others for purposes other than order fulfillment.
Your demographic information (gender, date of birth, etc.) will be used for several security purposes, to ensure you are who you say you are and in fact you are paying with your credit cards and not someone using your stolen credit cards.
Correcting/Updating Your Personal Information
After becoming a STARLESS RIVER subscriber you may correct/update your personal information by clicking on the 'My Account' link at the top of any page, entering your ID, password and birth date when prompted and clicking the Edit Information button. The changes you make will be reflected in our databases instantly. If you wish to deactivate your account, you may contact our member services group through the 'My Account' section, or the 'Contact Us' section.
If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend's name and email address. We will automatically send your friend an email inviting him or her to visit the site. STARLESS RIVER does not store this information and uses it for the sole purpose of sending this email.
Our Use of Log Files
When you visit our site we automatically log your IP address, your browser type and your access times. This is standard for every web server. We utilize this information to conduct site performance evaluations, to see where visitors are coming from and to keep track of click stream data (the screens our users visit on our site). This data helps us to determine what content our members find most appealing so that we can maximize your enjoyment of the site. Log files are not tied to personally identifiable information.
All STARLESS RIVER employees take your personal information very seriously. All employees must learn and obey our security policies. Access to member personal information is limited to key management personnel and our member services department. The information is ID and password protected and our Web security is reviewed on a monthly basis. We have also installed and implied our site with a 128 bit encryption SSL.
Links To Other Sites
From time to time we may send out email messages alerting you that products are available, to remind you about providing feedback or for promotional offers. In addition, you will receive communication from us 1) if you contact us for a particular reason, 2) to receive your orders, or 3) we need to contact you for administrative purposes such as winning a contest. Administrative e-mails will not contain promotional materials. If you choose to receive our News Letters, they will contain promotional materials from STARLESS RIVER..
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law if this is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our business.
We may correct or supplement your address information in order to ensure that your orders are delivered. We do this since we want to make sure that our members receive the order and to lower costs.
Periodically, competitions are run on our site. Sometimes competions are sponsored by our customers. To enter these competitions you need only to enter your ID and password and your guess. At the time of entry, you may decide if you wish to have your first name and state posted on our site if you are the winner. Winner's names are NEVER shared with our customers without their consent.
