How does East Coast Classics protect customer information?
All data transmitted to and from the East Coast Classics site is encrypted by what is called a Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL. We use state-of-the-art 128-bit SSL encryption certificates issued by Network Solutions – one of the Internet’s leading, and safest provider of security for Ecommerce websites. All important information is encrypted using this technology before it leaves your computer. The encrypted information is then received by our website, placed behind a secure firewall, and then decrypted in order to process your order.
What about “cookies”?
“Cookies” are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Our cookies do not contain any personally identifying information, but they do allow us to track the most visited areas of our site, in order to improve it in the future. For example, the information regarding the year, make and model of your car is stored in a cookie so that you don’t have to continually re-enter this information every time you view a new page. If you disable cookies in your browser for www.pelicanparts.com, you will have difficulty browsing and placing orders on the site.
Will East Coast Classics disclose the information it collects to outside parties?
East Coast Classics does not rent, sell, give, or release any of your personal information to anyone else. Under no circumstances will your personal information be released to a third party, except under the requirement to comply with appropriate law, as is such with a court-ordered subpoena. Certain information may be required to be disclosed in order to process your order. For example, if shipping a package via UPS, your address information may be electronically sent to UPS to facilitate the processing and delivery of that package. Certain products may be shipped directly from our suppliers. Our suppliers have agreed to honor our Privacy Policies and uphold themselves to the same strict standards that we have set for ourselves.
