What is our Privacy Statement?
We respect your privacy in handling personally identifiable information, whether through our mail order catalog or on our website. This Privacy Statement describes the personally identifiable information we gather about you and your company or organization, what we do with it, the safeguards that we have in place to protect it, and how you can control our use of it.
By using our website, you consent to the collection and use of this information by ATD-Capitol CO. The Privacy Statement was posted on December 1, 2004. We reserve the right to change our policy from time to time. The current Privacy Statement will always be posted at our website.

 

What personally identifiable information does ATD-CAPITOL CO. request and how do we use it?
We collect information such as contact information, billing, shipping and credit card information to use so that we may process your orders or requests for information. Only employees who need this information to perform a specific task are granted access to personally identifiable information. We may use your contact information, including your email address, to contact you if we have questions about your order or request for information.
We also collect information about how you use our site and which areas, features and products are most popular. These log files of site traffic do not link with any personally identifying information. They are used strictly to manage traffic loads and our information technology so that we can provide the most reliable service. Information collected includes IP addresses and browser types.
We will not use credit card information for any purpose other than fulfilling your order.
When and with whom does ATD-CAPITOL CO. share your personally identifiable information?
We will not disclose information about you to others except as disclosed in this Privacy Statement or as authorized by you at the time the information is collected.
We work with third parties who provide several services on our behalf. For example, we use a bank to verify, bill and collect payments on all credit card transactions; a large or small package carrier to deliver your merchandise; outside direct mail vendors to print and mail our catalogs and literature; and reputable web service companies to operate our website and send emails to our customers. These contracted suppliers are only given the information they need to provide their service and are not permitted to disclose your personally identifiable information.
We develop marketing relationships with reputable businesses that provide services and products that we believe may be of interest to you. We may provide them with mailing address information so that they may extend offers to you. If you do not wish to have your address information shared, email us at SALES@ATD.COM and we will flag your name so that your address information is not shared. We will not rent, sell or make available email addresses to outside companies unless you specifically give us permission to do so.
We may share personally identifiable information with law enforcement or other government entities as required by law or as we reasonably determine to be necessary to protect our rights or the rights of others, to prevent harm to persons or property, to fight fraud or to enforce our website terms of use.
What about Cookies?
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and provide personalized features such as storage of items in your Shopping Cart between visits. The use of cookies is standard on the Internet and many major websites use them. The “Help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie or how to disable cookies altogether. Cookies do not contain personal identifying information and do not give us control over your computer.
Does ATD-CAPITOL CO. conduct special programs that use personally identifiable information?
We occasionally conduct surveys, contests or other promotional programs that involve the collection of personally identifiable information. In addition we send promotional emails and newsletters with valuable information for our customers. Participation in these programs is voluntary. Information requested may include contact information and/or organization or company demographic information. Survey information may be used for the purposes of monitoring or improving our operations.
How is my personally identifiable information protected?
We have implemented many safeguards to adequately protect your information.
Our databases are protected by physical, technical, and procedural measures that restrict information access to authorized persons in accordance with this Privacy Statement. Our IT systems are maintained behind a software firewall to isolate them from access by other networks connected to the Internet. Our employees are trained in issues of privacy and only employees who need information to perform an operational duty are granted access to your information.
To insure that your information is protected, we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to encrypt personally identifiable information. In order to insure that your connection is secure, look at the lower left hand corner of your browser window. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock, the SSL is active and your information is secure. You may also check by looking at the URL line of your browser. The first characters of the site address will change from http to https when you are accessing a secure server.
We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card number when confirming an order (of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card processing company).
You also play a very important part in the security of your information. Please do not share the password that you use to access our website with anyone and change it if necessary. After you have finished using our site, please log out and exit your browser to prevent unauthorized users from obtaining access to your account.
How can I limit the sharing of personally identifiable information?
