Our Commitment to Your Privacy
Why we collect your information
General - One of our goals at TALLEYRINGS.COM is to provide our customers with a time saving and easy to use interface to access our extensive line of products. Some of the information we collect is used strictly to help customize your visits to TALLEYRINGS.COM. Customizing your experience allows us to increase the efficiency and functionality of our site by tailoring it to your specific needs. In order to properly access TALLEYRINGS.COM we require users to provide a valid email address and to create a unique password. This enables users to access the large selection of goods we have to offer. In order to purchase an item from our site we do require a proper shipping address. If the shipping address is different than billing address we do provide a field for the additional information. To properly complete any transaction we do require a valid credit card number. Talley Manufacturing, Inc. handles all credit card transactions and does not use a third party to do so. Talley Manufacturing, Inc. does provide an additional area called "Profile," where member's can access the information they have initially provided to us and add additional information such as name, mailing address, phone and fax number. Of course none of this information is required and the fields will automatically be filled in once you purchase an item from our site. If you have created an account at Talley Manufacturing, Inc. information entered in relation to past jobs or your company information is collected to allow us to provide you with the convenience of having that information available and at hand on future visits.
The more we know about you, the better equipped we are to provide you with the service, selection and content that you expect from Talley Manufacturing, Inc.
Choice/Opt-out - Our users are given the opportunity to 'opt-out' of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information. For example, our order form has an 'opt-out' mechanism so users who buy a product from us, but don't want any marketing material, can keep their email address off of our lists.
Correction/Updating Personal Information - If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as your zip code), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user's personal data provided to us. This can usually be done at the member information page or by emailing our Customer Support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Newsletter - If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we do require contact information of your name and email address.
Surveys & Contests - From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site. Information and rules specific to each contest will be clearly posted and available.
Please Note : Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials from our partners may opt-out of receiving these communications by replying to the newsletters with unsubscribe in the subject line or by emailing the same to email@example.com
Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether they should proceed with services that require an outside party.

Security on our Site
Shopping with TALLEYRINGS.COM is absolutely safe -- you never have to worry about credit-card safety when you are shopping at our site. We guarantee that each purchase you make is protected. We use the latest encryption technology to keep your personal information safe. All your ordering information -- including your name, address, and credit card number -- is encrypted using a secure server for maximum security. All transactions are processed using a technology called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL technology is the industry standard method for protecting web communications, and was developed by Netscape communications. The SSL security protocol provides data encryption, server authentication, message integrity, and optional client authentication for a TCP/IP connection. All information transmitted to TALLEYRINGS.COM is encrypted and sent using this technology. To ensure that your information is even more secure, once we receive your credit card information, we store it on a server that is not accessible from the Internet. All account information is protected by a password, and access each account requires both your username and that password to access or use. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. At no time will a TALLEYRINGS.COM representative ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or unsolicited email. Please remember that no data transmission over the internet can be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your personal information, ultimately you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information.
Changes to our security policy
We will notify you directly if there is a material change in our privacy practices. We will take commercially reasonable measures to obtain written or active e-mail consent from the user if www.whitecapdirect.com is going to be using the information collected from the user in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection. For any other changes, a notice will be placed on our home page in regards to the changes in our privacy statement 30 days prior to any modifications.
