Your privacy is important to us, so our pledge to you is ironclad:
We will not sell, rent or loan third parties use of or access to personal information such as your name, e-mail address, shipping address or credit card information.
We gather this information to serve you better. Obviously, we need it to process your transaction. But we also want to know if our site works for you. So we log your IP address (your computer's location on the Internet) to see how easily you navigate our site and whether you can find what you're looking for. IP addresses also give us a sense of general traffic flow-for example, whether you came to us from AOL or Yahoo! But we record this kind of information in aggregate form only-in other words, as general patterns. Your IP address is never linked to any personal information.
To remember your preferences - like a local shop owner remembers what you've bought - we use "cookies" to customize portions of our site. Cookies are small data files that are stored on your Internet browser. When you access our site, for example, a cookie tells us that you have bought from us before. Thus you have to answer questions only once, not each time you make a purchase or take part in a discussion group. A cookie doesn't tell us (or anyone else) anything personal about you. You give us that information when you register, and only Peltzshoes.com has access to it. To learn more about cookies, visit World Wide Web Security FAQ.
From time to time, we'll also sponsor co-branded sites with carefully chosen partners like Yahoo!. You'll know that you're on one of our co-branded sites by looking at the top of a page: you'll see our logo as well as our partner's. In that case, we may share with that partner some of the data we receive. Rest assured, however, that our partners fully subscribe to the stringent privacy and security policies spelled out here.
