We are concerned about privacy
Information collection and use
Two types of information may be collected when you visit our web site, information that you knowingly provide us (called personally identifiable information), and information that is obtained from your visit but is not directly associated with you (called non-personally identifiable information).
Personally identifiable information
Personally identifiable information may include information that you provide to us by requesting information, when registering for special offers or programs or when you purchase products online. This may include your name, address (including billing and shipping addresses), telephone number, e-mail address, organization, city, state and zip code. We may use this information, to process and ship orders, to contact you about the status of your order, to contact you with answers to your questions, or to provide information about new and exciting products, services, promotions and corporate-related information. We may use mailings, telephone calls and e-mail to contact you.
You also may create an account through parts4repair.com at any time by providing your email address and creating a unique password. An account is not required to visit our site or to place an order through parts4repair.com. Creating an account allows you to save order information, order history, track the status of your orders and set your ordering preferences. For your privacy and security, we do not store credit card or Gift Card numbers in your account. You may change saved account information at anytime. Simply visit the Your Account page, log in with your user name and password.
For those customers who purchase products from us online, additional personally identifiable information such as credit card information will be collected by third-party payment gateway ( like Paypal.com etc.). This information is collected in order to process your order.
For those customers who register for special email offerings, we may use the zip code you provided to email special offers that apply only to your area.
We are committed to the protection of the privacy of our customers and visitors. While in the checkout process of our online store, we make use of reliable and reputable third-party payment gateway companies ( like Paypal.com etc.). These companies enable our commerce site to conduct authenticated, strongly encrypted online commerce. Customers can submit credit card numbers or other personal information to them with the assurance that they are doing business with us (not an impostor's "spoof" of our site) and that the information which they are sending to us cannot be intercepted or decrypted by anyone else.
Requesting removal of your information
If you have registered for special e-mail offerings, you may unsubscribe from the program, by visiting the e-mail unsubscribe page or click on the links available at the bottom of any of these special offer e-mails. You may also request the removal of your information by contacting us via e-mail.
If you wish to receive more personalized information from us or change anything about your profile such as your interests or e-mail format, please click on the links available at the bottom of any of these special offer e-mails or visit the Your Account page.
