This website 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 Netscape Navigator
and Microsoft Internet Explorer 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 take
steps to protect user-information off-line. User's 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 Care professionals) are granted
access to personally identifiable information. Also, the
servers that we store personally identifiable information
on are kept in a secure environment, behind a locked cage.
If you have any questions
about the security at our website, you can send an email
Supplementation of Information
In order for this website
to properly fulfill its obligation to our customers, it
is necessary for us to supplement the information we receive
with information from 3rd party sources. In order for
this website to enhance its ability to tailor the site
to an individuals preference, we may combine information
about the purchasing habits of users with similar information
from our partners to create a personalized user profile.
We send all new members
a welcoming email to verify username and password hint.
Established members will occasionally receive information
on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter.
Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present
the option to not receive these types of communications.
Please see our choice and opt-out below.
Site and Service Updates
We also send the user
site and service announcement updates. Members are not
able to un-subscribe from service announcements, which
contain important information about the service. We communicate
with the user to provide requested services and in regards
to issues relating to their account via email or phone.
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 users
personal data provided to us. This can usually be done
at the appropriate member information page.
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.
Users who no longer
wish to receive a newsletter or promotional materials
may opt-out of receiving these communications by replying
to unsubscribe in the subject line in the email or email
us to Support@TamilChristianShop.com
Notification of Changes
If we decide to change
page so our users are always aware of what information

any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use
personally identifiable information in a manner different
from that stated at the time it was collected, we will
notify users. Users will have a choice as to whether or
not we use their information in this different manner.
We will use information in accordance with the privacy
policy under which the information was collected.
