(Effective June 15, 2017)
Your privacy is important to us. For this reason, we have made a commitment to meet strict requirements regarding how we treat your personal information.
Microscopes International collects and is the sole owner of the information collected on this site.
Microscopes International will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.
We may occasionally share aggregated demographic information with our business partners. This information is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
We use outside shipping companies (like FedEx, UPS, Airborne, USPS, and courier services) to ship orders. Therefore, we must provide your name, mailing address, and phone number to them when we ship products and information to you. If you do not wish us to share this information, you may pick up your product or information packet from our offices.
We accept credit card orders and, on occasion, must provide the customer name and address information to VISA, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover for verification purposes. If you do not wish us to verify your credit card, you may use an alternate form of payment.
We partner with other businesses and companies to provide you with important or interesting information about products or services you may find beneficial. On occasion, we provide names and other contact information that are necessary to provide such information to you. To prevent the sharing of your information, contact us to opt-out of these types of offers.
Microscopes International takes every precaution to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, that information is protected both online and off-line.
All pages (and forms) on this web site are available in secure format (HTTPS) only. Secure pages encrypt and protect information with the best encryption software in the industry. While on a secure page, the lock icon displays in Web browsers such as Chrome, FireFox, and Microsoft Internet Explorer/Edge.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also protect user-information off-line. All information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our accounts receivable clerk or technical support personnel) are granted access to personally identifiable information. All database access is password-protected. Our employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers' information is protected. Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure, locked environment.
If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
