We implement 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.
ABOUT PERSONAL INFORMATION
SMC Merch fully recognizes the importance of your privacy and keeps all of your personal information confidential. Unless you directly permit us to do otherwise, SMC Merch will not sell, share, or trade any of our customer’s personal information to unrelated third parties. Your personal information will be used within our company for internal use only, and this information is used to assist us in communicating with our customers about products, promotions, or any other activities.
We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our Payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with exclusive access rights to such systems and are required to keep the information confidential.
After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financials, etc.) will not be stored on our servers.
