MARKSTAAR.com's Privacy Notice

Our Total Commitment To Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available via the "Privacy Notice" link in the menu bar located at the top of all pages.

The Way We Use Our Customers Information

We use the information you provide about yourself when placing an order only to complete that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.

We use the information you provide about someone else when placing an order only to ship the product and to confirm delivery. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive from you. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties. Email addresses and information that you submit on our "Contact Us" page are logged to prevent malicious use of our email server. This information is only available to us and not used for any other purpose. It is not shared with outside parties.

We use IP address and domain name information for internal purposes to help prevent fraud. This information is not used for any other purpose and it is not shared with outside parties.

We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.

Occasionally we may email marketing material to customers that have purchased items from us. We only send marketing material for our own products and services and never on the behalf of another company. Our marketing emails will always include instructions about how you can request to be removed from our mailing list.
