Information We Use
We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our Web site, and to hlep prevent spam and malware.
Our site uses registration forms. Registration forms require you to give us contact information, such as names and e-mail addresses, as well as identifiers such as IDs and passwords. Your contact information is used to facilitate order processing for purchases in the future.
Our site uses a feature of your Web Browser called a “cookie” to assign a unique identification to your computer. Cookies are files that your Web Browser places on your computer’s hard drive. Our site creates and then uses these cookie files to maintain the contents of your shopping cart and wish list. We keep this information so that you can complete an order over multiple Web Browser sessions.
We use an order form for customers to purchase products. If you place an order at our site, we will collect information from you, including your credit card and contact information. This information will be used to bill you for products. We do not have access to your credit card number or security code. That information is transmitted to our payment processor using a secure, encrypted protocol.
Contact information from the order form will also be used to ship orders, and to contact you for customer service related issues.
We do not give or sell your personal information to anyone.
Our site uses the latest secure transaction processing methods available for web commerce applications.
Our server uses the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for all encrypted transactions. SSL ensures that your personal information and credit card data are secure when shopping at our site.
Due to the nature of the products that we sell, we understand the need for discretion in processing your order.
The email messages that you receive from our site do contain the name of our site, and the email address they are sent from does contain our domain name, ‘beyondpiercing.com’. If your main email address is shared with or can be accessed by others, we recommend that you use another email address for your orders. Free, Web-based email accounts are available from gmail.com, outlook.com, yahoo.com, and many other providers.
We may attempt to call you on the phone if there is a problem with your order and we are unable to reach you by email. We will only identify our store and speak to the person whose name is on the order.
Credit Card and PayPal Transactions
If you paid for your order by credit card or PayPal, the transaction will appear on your statement as “BPONLINE” or “BPONLINESALES”. (Some of our customers might not appreciate them showing up as “Beyond Piercing”.)
Your order is shipped in a plain package with no indication of the contents. However, our business name, “Beyond Piercing”, does appear on the return address.
If you are concerned about someone else receiving or opening your shipment when you are not there to receive it, we recommend that you contact your local Post Office and ask if you can have a shipment sent to you by General Delivery.
