Shabby Apple understands and respects your concerns about privacy and is committed to providing you with a safe online experience. The information below describes the type of information we collect, how it is used, and steps we take to protect your personally identifiable information. This policy applies only to website or phone orders. Periodically, we may update our Privacy and Security policies and encourage you to check this section for any changes.
How does Shabby Apple protect customer credit card information?
Shabby Apple has carefully selected a third-party service provider to transmit and manage credit card transactions. This third party service provider is compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard ("PCI DSS") as a Level 1 service provider, the bankcard industry’s most stringent security standard. Security measures include physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards; sophisticated security monitoring tools; documented security policies; use of strong encryption for transmissions of Order Information to and from CyberSource Customers; restricted access of personally identifiable information; and periodic security audits by third party security experts.
Shabby Apple is PCI DSS compliant. We also have a policy for employees to safeguard client information designed to prevent unauthorized access, disclosure, or use in any way.
Any visitors who do not want their personal information collected online are offered the opportunity to not submit such information to shabbyapple.com. We also offer the option for you to place your order by telephone or fax.
What personally identifiable information does shabbyapple.com collect and how is it used?
We collect only the client information we need to administer our business, provide superior service to our clients, and communicate information relating to our products and services we believe to be of interest to our clients.
This website collects personally identifiable information (such as name, address, telephone and fax numbers, email address, and credit card and purchase information) from visitors only when such information is voluntarily provided. That information is used to process your purchases and requests and to provide service. Information about your shopping cart choices, purchases, or requests for customer assistance may be passed along internally at Shabby Apple. Credit card and financing information also may be provided to credit card and consumer financing companies when required to process applications and transactions.
Information supplied to us, not including credit card information, is added to our client database. We may make portions of our web and phone order client list available to carefully chosen third parties to assist us in providing services to our customers. If you do not want your name made available this way, if you’ve moved, or if you would prefer not to receive catalogs or email from Shabby Apple, please request to be removed from our mailing list by clicking on the hyperlink provided in Shabby Apple emails.
Information further may be stored and used to better understand our clients, their needs, ways to improve our products and services, and to contact clients with offers that may be of interest to them.
