At Congregation Beth El, we are committed to the utmost level of security and privacy for our customers. To that end, our company and our website adhere to extremely strict privacy procedures.
Safe, Secure Ordering
When processing your order in the Checkout Area area we use 128bit encryption technology to ensure that the information you submit can only be seen by us, thus keeping it private.
Your Credit Card information is not stored in our databases
We do not store credit card information. Once your order is placed, the credit card information is immedaitely sent to the credit card authority (Visa, Mastercard, etc) for processing. Your credit card information is then erased from our system. Because your CC information is not stored in our system, you are required to reenter it each time you place an order; however, we at Congregation Beth El feel that the security benefits to our customers far outweigh the inconvenience of having to reenter this information each time you place an order.
Your Privacy Is Assured
You will never be placed on any mailing lists without your permission. We will not sell your information to any third party without your permission. Customers must Opt-In during checkout or regsiter on the homepage in order to be included in our mailings. All mailings will include the option to unsubscribe so that they will no longer receive mailings.
We have created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website.
Our site uses an order form for customers to request information, products, and services. We collect visitors' contact information (such as their email address) and financial information (like their account or credit card numbers). Contact information from the order form is used solely to process orders for our customers. The customer's contact information is also used to get in touch with the visitor when necessary. Users may optionally opt-in to receive promotional mailings from us. Financial information that is collected is used to solely to bill the customer for products and services. This information is never shared with or sold to third parties.
Congregation Beth El takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information through the Web site, their information is protected both online and offline. Our staff will not disclose any customer information, names or purchasing information to anyone outside of Congregation Beth El's, unless required to do so by law.
When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, which is its designation when you are just surfing. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information offline.
What is SSL?
The SSL (and TLS) protocol is the Web standard for encrypting communications between users and SSL (secure sockets layer) e-commerce sites. Data sent via an SSL connection is protected by encryption, a mechanism that prevents eavesdropping and tampering with any transmitted data. SSL provides businesses and consumers with the confidence that private data sent to a Web site, such as credit card numbers, are kept confidential. Web server certificates (also known as secure server certificates or SSL certificates) are required to initialize an SSL session.
Customers know when they have an SSL session with a website when their browser displays the little gold padlock and the address bar begins with a https rather than http.
