At Grandpa's, we understand your wish for privacy. We feel the same way, ourselves.
We understand how vital it is to keep your information safe and secure. Grandpa's uses Comodo, SSL Web Server Certificates, to offer secure communications by encrypting all membership and checkout data. We use secure sockets layer (SSL) 128-bit encryption on all online orders. Comodo has checked and verified our registration documents and registered domain name. This information is included in the SSL certificate that we issue. This enables you to check the site's validity yourself.
When you use a credit card to make a purchase at Grandpasgeneral.com, we use Secure Socket Layering (SSL) to encrypt your personal credit information, including your credit card number, before it travels over the Internet. SSL technology is the industry standard for secure online transactions. Making a credit card purchase online at Grandpasgeneral.com is just as safe as making a credit card purchase over the telephone. You can view our secure certification from the left side menu, here.
We do employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf, such as delivering packages, and for processing credit card payments. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
By using this site, you give us your consent to use this information for any of the following: processing your order, market research, processing your payments, credit reference checking, fraud detection, and member management.
When you place an order with us, register to be added to an e-mail list maintained by us, or enter any type of drawing or contest, we do not share that information with any other person or business, except as noted in the security section above. Any e-mail and private information collected is never sold to anyone.
In no case will we knowingly provide personal postal addresses, email addresses, or phone numbers to third parties, unless required to process an order or to fulfill legal requirement. The exception to this, is unlawful use of checking accounts and/or credit cards. In the event of unauthorized use of bank accounts and/or credit card accounts, we will give any information we have about the party(s) concerned to the proper authorities, to help catch and prosecute the offender(s).
If, for any reason, you are unsure about the personal and account information we are holding in your name, please contact our customer service. They will happily review your file and update the records if required. You can contact our customer service here.
Alternatively, this information can be checked and reviewed online once you have signed in. Your personal information is accessable by logging onto your account through our secure server. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
