EKIA Hobbies is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share or rent this information to others. We request information from the user on our order form such as contact information and credit card number and expiration date. This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customers' orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.
EKIA Hobbies takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or contact information), that information is encrypted and is protected with 128 bit encryption software from GeoTrust. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as FireFox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'. To learn more about SSL, follow this link GeoTrust.
All sensitive information is collected through the online store hosted by our third party service provider. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to [email protected]
