Your browser and our secure server encrypt confidential information during transmission, ensuring that transactions stay private and protected. Once information is collected by Acuant, we take reasonable precautions to protect personal information in our possession from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
We store your billing and shipping address, invoices and order history in our customer relationship management (“CRM”) database. We may purge customer information from our CRM database if we are no longer doing business with the customer.
We do not sell or rent our customers’ information (including personally identifiable information) to any third party under any circumstances.
