Prestwood Security & Privacy Policy

Our security and privacy policy.



Prestwood Store Security -
The Prestwood store uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Protocol for browsers that support 128-bit encryption. SSL encrypts information as it travels between your browser and the Prestwood web server so that your purchase information cannot be read as it travels over the Internet. A change in the URL from http:// to https:// notifies you that you are using SSL. If the URL on a page asking you to provide personal information remains as http://, beware: this may result in an insecure transmission.

Double Encryption and Additional Security Layers
As an added layer of protection, your sensitive information such as your password and other information are scrambled in our database. In addition we have implemented many layers of security to guard against hackers and other illegal activity. Although we keep our specific security measures secret, you can read our [13 Ways To Secure Your Website] article written by Mike Prestwood to get an idea of the types of security measures we've taken.


Privacy Goal
At Prestwood we recognize that our customers are concerned about the privacy of the information that we collect from our customers and our plans for using this information. Our goal is to ensure that we only gather information about you that you want us to have and that we only use this information in a law abiding manor AND consistent with current ethical values.

No Spam Policy
We at Prestwood, do not believe in Spam email campaigns. Our sole email campaign is our opt in monthly eMag subscription. If and only if you subscribe, once a month, and ONLY once a month, we send an e-mail version or our eMag customized with the community groups you've selected and you can easily unsubscribe (link included in every email).

Email Policy
With us your email address is  ALWAYS HIDDEN from visitors and other members. Because of the problem with spammers gathering emails from websites, it is our policy that your email will not appear on any publicly accessible page. If you choose to allow it, members can private message each other through our Message Center (you can turn off private messaging in your account settings). In addition, we will NEVER give your email to a third party for the purpose of soliciting business from you.

Links to Other Sites
Prestwood offers links to many other web sites. Please note that we are not affiliated with these sites and are not responsible for their privacy practices or policies. If you have a complaint about a linked website, contact us and let us know what the issue is.
