Security of Personal Information
We know that your privacy is very important to you. That's why protecting any personal information, such as your name, address, email or phone number that you provide is of the utmost importance to Le Petit Spa.
We have prepared this Privacy and Security Statement to let you know about how we collect, use, disclose and otherwise manage the personal information you entrust to us.
When you provide personal information to us, you are consenting to the manner in which Le Petit Spa collects, uses, discloses and otherwise manages your personal information, as set out below.
We may collect personal information that you provide us when you:
- Purchase, order, return, exchange or request certain information about our products and services;
- Visit or register with our website or participate in another feature of our site, such as online purchasing;
- Enter into a contest or sweepstakes or respond to one of our surveys; or
- Provide us with comments or suggestions.
Shopping at Le Petit Spa
When you purchase products and services we will collect your pertinent information from our client consultation form and keep a history of your purchases. We use this information to process your orders and to better assist you when you visit or call us as well as to improve our product and service offerings.
When you return previously purchased merchandise or request a refund or exchange, you will be asked to give your name, address, phone number and the reason for the return. We collect this information to help prevent fraud and assist us in determining quality control issues.
Shopping Online at Le Petit Spa
Le Petit Spa used PayPal to collect your payment information with state-of-the-art encryption and uses account verification processes to make sure you are the one using your account and paying for products online. PayPal sends an email confirmation of every account transaction. PayPal has a proven record to be the best solution for secure transactions over the internet- that is why it is being used by millions of users today (Source www.paypal.com February 2006)
It's important to know the difference between Spa Boutique and other E-commerce stores, which may collect credit card info directly. It is those stores that scare the "newbies" and those that the media talks about regarding internet fraud and online ordering. Those e-commerce stores who collect credit card info directly, may leave themselves open to security threats and are vulnerable to hackers...we choose NOT to do so...that is why we use PayPal as a third party payment processer!
PayPal’s industry-leading fraud prevention measures and their one-of-a-kind method of keeping your financial information private from sellers make PayPal a safe way to pay online.
Other Uses of Personal Information
Le Petit Spa uses personal information, to continually assess and improve the products and services we offer. We would also like to inform you of products and services, sales and special offers that might benefit you. When you register online or participate in a survey, you will have the opportunity to sign up for e-mails about our products, services, sales and special offers.
We may also send you mail, email or call you with information about our product and service offerings if you have provided us with your name and address, email address or phone numbers.
We use your feedback, suggestions, survey information and comments solely to monitor and/or improve the use and features of Le Petit Spa and our product and service offerings.
