Our Security Commitment
At PaddleBoard Direct, we are committed to protecting your privacy. We use the information you provide to make shopping at PaddleBoard Direct possible, to improve our Web Site and to enhance your overall shopping experience.
We do not sell, trade or share your personal information with others.
We use the information you provide when you subscirbe to the PaddleBoard Direct Newsletter or place a secure on-line order to process your order and personalize your shopping experience. PaddleBoard Direct has instituted safeguards to ensure your personal and payment information is kept confidential and secure.
Shopping at www.windsurfing-direct.com is safe. When you provide us with any personal information, such as your name, address, e-mail and credit card number, it's provided in a secure manner, using an advanced security system known as Secure Socket Layers (SSL). This system encrypts all information you provide before sending it to our server. Only when it reaches the windsurfing-direct.com server is your information manually decrypted by our customer service staff. Furthermore, all of the customer data we collect is protected against unauthorized access.
We encrypt your orders with SSL and PGP
Three letters can make all the difference - SSL and PGP. They stand for encryption methods which ensure our customers can shop in safety.
Internet browsers such as Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator support a special encryption method. It ensures nobody can read an order, while it is being placed on the Internet. This encryption method is called SSL.
Because SSL is widely known and accepted, PaddleBoard Direct always uses it when accepting orders online, to make our valued customers more comfortable. Due to the high security SSL offers, it is widely used in Internet shops to secure orders. Any order details sent to PaddleBoard Direct via the Internet are by standard SSL encryption.
To top off your security, we use an additional PGP encryption package, which protects your e-mail orders when they are sent to us.
There is certain information that we need to collect from you. For example: When you order, we need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number, and expiration date. This allows us to process and fulfill your order and to notify you of your order status.
