We have created this statement in order to advise you about our firm commitment to protecting your privacy.
At Pomega, we want you to feel comfortable using our website. We will never willfully sell, trade, rent, disclose, or make available personally identifiable information about you to any third party without first receiving your permission, except when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, or to protect the rights or property of the company.
The following discloses how we gather information about our customers for our website:
When you visit our website, your computer exchanges information with other computer systems in order to display pages, select specific information and enable you to buy products and services. During this exchange, Pomega gathers information only to fulfill your requests accurately and quickly, and to identify ways that we can improve our site to enhance your visit.
How does Pomega protect my transaction?
We use state-of-the-art technology to protect your data from unauthorized third parties. This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Currently Pomega, via its ISP, uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) software to protect your data. SSL encrypts any personal information transmitted over the Internet. The servers of our service provider are further protected by a firewall to prevent unauthorized access to stored information.
In addition to using a secure server system that encrypts your order information, orders with payment information are not transmitted to us. Instead, a designated individual in the company accesses the orders using a password-protected back office system. Orders are retrieved via this system and then stored on the secure server. Each order is then processed manually using the same process that we use for fax and telephone orders. At no time is your payment information or any personal data transmitted to a third party for verification or processing other than to your credit card company, authorize.net (the payment gateway) and our Bank. Once the order is retrieved, all portions of the order fulfillment process are handled internally.
