Any User interacting with our site and providing any of our sites, including PoolSurfacesCarolinas.com, with name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, domain name or URL or any other personally identifiable information permits PoolSurfacesCarolinas.com to use such information for commercial purposes of its own, including contacting Users about products and services which may be of interest. For each visitor to our Web Site, our Web server recognizes only the visitor’s domain name, not the e-mail address. We collect information volunteered by the visitor, such as form submittals and/or site registrations. This information is used to improve the content of our Web site, it is not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes. PoolSurfacesCarolinas.com does not not sell, rent or otherwise disclose its mailing lists to third parties.
PoolSurfacesCarolinas.com takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry, SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Firefox becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Our employees must use password-protected screen-savers when they leave their desk. When they return, they must re-enter their password to re-gain access to your information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers’ information is protected. Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment.

In any exchange requiring SSL, we use the latest SSL Server Certified 128-bit encryption to protect your data. Pool Surfaces Carolinas protects you and your information by using a Secure Socket Layer (SSL). SSL transparently encrypts the data between your browser and our server, so we can better process credit card orders, protect sensitive personal information, and strive to the best of our ability that hackers cannot detect your password.

There are two main types of cookies that can be transmitted via a web page interaction.
1.) Transient cookie – or temporary session cookies. This puts data into your temporary memory of your browser to convey information (if you are filling out an order form for example) from one screen to the next. This type of cookie only lasts as long as your browser is open (or it can time out at about 20 -120 minutes or so). Once you close your browser this cookie disappears and is gone for good.
2.) Persistent Cookies – these are the cookies (or bits of data) that are stored on your machine’s hard drive. These can be used to store ID’s, logins, passwords, etc. to make your online experience easier. Unscrupulous web developers also put these on your hard drive to stay and collect data about you (hackers can also use these to collect passwords and keystroke.) But most reputable companies, such as your bank, Pool Surfaces Carolinas, and most e-commerce stores, use them to make your life easier with passwords and such.
You can delete the cookies on your machine from your Internet Explorer browser by going to the “Tools” menu, clicking on “Internet Options…” and clicking on the “Delete Cookies…” button.
