How Do You Protect My Information?

Randolph implements a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or enter, submit, or access your personal information. We work with Authorize.net, a payment processor, to ensure secure and efficient processing of your customer data. Authorize.net uses a secure, encrypted server, and ensures that all supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted on Authorize.net’s servers.  We do not receive or have access to your credit card number – that information is maintained only by Authorize.net.  The information on Authorize.net, is only accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, who are required to keep the information confidential. For more information on Authorize.net’s security and privacy policy, please click here:  https://www.authorize.net/about-us/privacy/

The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where Randolph has given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of the Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the Website, like message boards. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the Website.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although Randolph does its best to protect your personal information, it cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to the Website. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk.

 

Can I Post My Opinions on the Website?

Some parts of the Website allow you to post comments, reviews or questions (“User Contributions”) to be published or displayed on public areas of the Website. Your User Contributions are posted on and transmitted to others at your own risk.  Please be aware that Randolph cannot control the actions of other users of the Website with whom you may choose to share your User Contributions. Therefore, Randolph cannot and does not guarantee that your User Contributions will not be viewed by unauthorized persons.  If you would like to make comments, reviews, or ask questions in a manner that is not visible to other users, please feel free to contact Randolph at [email protected]

 

What Choices Do I Have?

You can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase or to take advantage of some features of the Website.

You can decline to accept cookies, set your browser to block cookies, or erase Randolph’s cookies from your computer, though doing so may prevent some aspects of the Website from working properly.
