1. What information we collect.
When you visit our Website, QAlias.com collects basic information that does not identify individual users. This includes which places are visited, the types of products purchased, and any feedback from our visitors. We then aggregate this information with volumes of other pieces of information to improve our site for you.
When you create an account with us, you provide to us such personal information as; first and last name, billing address, shipping address, e-mail address, telephone number, credit card account number, and the names of items you purchase from us. We collect this information on the pages where you create your account and at other pages where you sign up for our services.
2. How We Use It.
Based on this information given on your account, QAlias.com fills, ships and provides you with information about your order (i.e., whether your order has been received, processed, or shipped). We ask for your phone number (but this is not required) in the event that our service representatives can't reach you by e-mail. We use your mailing address not only to ship your orders, but also to tell you about special offers, products, or events we think will interest you (as we do by e-mail). Credit card information is used to bill you for products you have ordered and to track sales.
3. Whom We Share that Information With.
* Credit Card Processing and Security
You don't have to worry about credit-card safety when you shop at our Web site. QAlias.com guarantees that each purchase you make is protected and safe. If fraudulent charges are ever made, you will not have to pay for them. We use the latest encryption technology to keep you personal information safeguarded.
All your order information (i.e., your name, address, and credit card number) is encrypted using a secure server for maximum security. Your credit card and billing information cannot be read as it travels to our ordering system. To ensure that your information is even more secure, once we receive your credit card information, we store it on a server that isn't accessible from the Internet. We train all of our employees in how to best safeguard your confidential information.
Credit card transactions are handled by a third-party financial institution, which receives the credit card number and other personal identifying information only to verify the credit card numbers, and process transactions. If you feel more comfortable doing so, you are welcome to call in your credit card information and complete your purchase by phone. Or you can pay by check, and the service will be provided and/or the product will be shipped once your check has cleared.
* Advertiser Links
QAlias.com does work with certain advertisers who require that we disclose information about their customers who visit their Web site through the linkage from our Web site. This information is not disclosed in an individual capacity, but only in an aggregate way. Information such as numbers of "hits," average income, and average contacts per user are disclosed. In return, these advertisers share similar aggregate information with us, as to what happens on their Web site from these contacts.
* Special Promotional Offers
From time to time, QAlias likes to share with you special promotional offers, which have been specially screened by us and provide valuable savings to you. All of our customers are given the opportunity to not receive these offers, if they so choose, either by responding to the unsubscribe directions in any of these e-mails or by going to your account page and changing your general preferences.
4. How You Can Change the Information.
If at any time you would like to change any information in your account, just go to your account profile page and select the "edit" option. Once here, you can change or update your e-mail address and password, billing address, payment options, shipping options, and other information. You can save your changes then by selecting the "update" option of your edits are complete.
