Are my transactions secured online?
Yes! We take every precaution to protect your information. You are the only one who can access your account so long as you keep your username and password secret. When you place an order or make a payment online, your credit card account information is verified and processed on a secure server outside of the site server and all transmissions are fully encrypted. The information you send us is also encrypted in transit using secure socket layer (SSL) software. SHOESTRING SOLUTIONS uses Paypal for all secure online transactions.
Cookies are small pieces of information that your browser stores on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies do not hold any personal information, but they allow us to remember your password and store your site preferences.
If you check the “Remember me” box on the login page, we store your encrypted username and password to make it easier and faster to login the next time you return to the site.
If you choose not to accept any cookies on the site, you will still be able to use all the features of the site. You will, however, need to provide your login information during each visit.
Do you track site usage and traffic patterns?
Yes. By monitoring traffic patterns we learn which links and pages of the site are the most utilized. SHOESTRING SOLUTIONS will then use this information to further develop the features and functionality of the site and, hopefully, enhance your online experience.
We use third-party advertising companies to serve some of the ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. Some of our sites display Google ads. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here.
