privacy & security policy

 

We value your privacy

Scan Design is committed to keeping your personal and confidential information just that – personal and confidential. No personal information is required for you to browse our web site, only when you place an order. We use the information you provide to process and ship orders, and to contact you if necessary. You may choose to sign up for our mailing list, but rest assured that we will never knowingly share or sell your information to any third parties.

Security Policy
We have taken every measure to ensure that online shopping at Scan Design is as secure as possible. We use Secure Socket Layering (SSL), the industry standard encryption technology that ensures safe internet transmission of your personal information. Once you enter the Checkout process (when you are ready to purchase the items you have put into your shopping cart), your connection becomes secure. To confirm this, look at the top part of your browser window. If you see a closed lock (depending upon your browser) you can be sure that your information is secure. You can also ensure security by checking the URL line of your browser. When you enter the secure area of our site, the first characters of the site address will change from "http" to "https." If for some reason you do not see these cues, please contact us directly to place your order.
