Reef Check is committed to protecting your privacy online to the best of our ability. We do not collect or keep your credit card information in our database. In order to better provide you with numerous products and services, we collect two forms of information.
This refers to information that does not, by itself, identify you as a specific individual. We gather certain information about you based on where you shop at our web site in several ways. Such information may include the Website's Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") information as well as your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents and resources on the World Wide Web. An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route or reroute information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web, which allows web servers to locate and to identify your computer. A computer requires an IP address in order for the user to communicate over the Internet.
We collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration- gathering broad demographic information, enabling ads to be served on our website, reporting Non-Personally Identifiable Information to our advertisers, and monitoring the level of activity on our site. We collect information from visitors from our site, such as the URLs they came from, their IP addresses, domain types (e.g., .com or .org), browser type, country, state, possible telephone area code where their servers are located, the pages viewed by customers during their visits, and any search keywords entered on our site.
When you order from us, we collect personally identifiable information from you. If you order one of our products or any services, we will collect your name, e-mail address, billing address, shipping address, telephone number, product information, payment information, order number, referring URL, IP address and a password. We collect such information in order to fill your order, and also in order to get in contact with you regarding your order and/or to send you promotional materials. Before submitting your order, you will have the opportunity to review the order and make any changes.
Security Measurement: All online transactions at the Reef Check Sea Store feature 128-bit industry-standard SSL encryption held by GoDaddy SSL Authorization Certification Encryption Key. When you enter your private information into the order form, it is transmitted across the Internet in a 128-bit high encrypted (scrambled) form, then is decoded when it gets to Reef Check Sea Store (where your information will be kept). When viewing your data, your information has also been protected by a password, store secure key and will be encrypted until it gets to us.
Reef Check may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide Personally Identifiable Information to the appropriate governmental authorities. We will disclose Personally Identifiable Information upon receipt of a court order, subpoena, or to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation. Reef Check fully cooperates with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities. We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we in good faith believe to be unlawful.
