AALens Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website: AAlens.com.

We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Web site. Your IP address is used to help identify both you and your shopping cart.

We do not sell, rent, or disclose your personal information to any third parties, affiliates, partners, parent companies, or subsidiaries for marketing purposes.

Our site's registration form and Shopping Cart require users to give us contact information (like their name, email and shipping address). This information is used to process your orders. 

The customer's contact information is used to contact the customer when necessary such as to clarify an order or send a confirmation of an order. We attempt to contact customers primarily through email. If we are repeatedly unable to contact a customer by email, we will attempt phone contact.

Our site uses an order form for customers to request products. We collect visitor's contact information (like their name and email address). Contact information from the order form is used to send orders to our customers. The customer's contact information is used to get in touch with the visitor when necessary as previously outlined.

Our e-commerce system uses SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) - the industry standard for encryption technology. It is used to create a secure transaction environment for commerce on the Internet. If your browser and local network support the use of encrypted data transmissions, our Secure Checkout mode locks all information (like credit card number) passed from you to our Payment Gateway – PayPal -  in an encrypted envelope, making it extremely difficult to be intercepted by an unauthorized party. SSL technology is compatible with Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome and most other browsers.

The Affiliate program is a partnership between AAlens.com and a linking site where the linking site receives a commission for every sale that is generated through their link. We collect a potential affiliates' email address and website address. None of this information is rented, shared or sold.

Security

This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. All collected information is stored on secured servers. Access to information is strictly controlled and password-protected.

 Choice/Opt-Out

This site gives users the following options for removing their information from our database. All of the customer's information will be removed from our database upon request - Email [email protected] to request for removal.

Corrections/Updates

This site gives users the following options for changing and modifying information previously provided. If users enter their personal information into the registration form (to be added to the AAlens.com database), they may change/update their information by clicking on the "Register" button in the shopping cart area.

However, if a customer orders a product without registering and entering their username and password, their previously entered information cannot be accessed or changed/updated and the customer would need to re-enter the information.
