Why we collect personal information
Why do we collect your personal information? Because it helps us deliver a superior level of customer service. It enables us to give you convenient access to our products and focus on categories of greatest interest to you. In addition, your personal information helps us keep you posted on the latest product announcements and special offers that you might like to hear about.
Your personal information will only be used on our website, and to confirm and continue communications initiated by you, the consumer. We will not send you advertisements or unsolicited email.
What information we collect
The Scale Hobbyist website allows you to create a "User ID" based on your personal information. This convenient service saves you time and allows for easier use of our web services. Here's how it works: You create a personal profile — providing your name and email address, and choose a password for security. The system saves any information you may enter and assigns you a personal User ID — generally your email address, because it's unique and easy to remember. The next time you order from the Scale Hobbyist Store, all you need to do is enter your User ID and password; the system looks up the information it needs to assist you.
When we disclose your information
At times we may be required by law or litigation to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary.
How we protect your personal information
Scale Hobbyist takes precautions — including administrative, technical, and physical measures — to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.
The Scale Hobbyist Online Store use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where personal information is required. To make purchases from the Scale Hobbyist Online Store, you must use an SSL-enabled browser such as Safari, Firefox or Internet Explorer. Doing so protects the confidentiality of your personal and credit card information while it's transmitted over the Internet.
You can help us by also taking precautions to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often using a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure web browser like Safari.
Integrity of your personal information
Scale Hobbyist has safeguards in place to keep your personal information accurate, complete, and up to date for the purposes for which it is used.
