American Blind & Shade is committed to protecting the privacy of our customers. We exercise reasonable care, consistent with Internet Standards, to maintain the confidentiality of the information we receive. The following Privacy Policy covers how your personal information is processed and used on our site. We pledge to protect your personal information and use it only in ways compatible with this Policy. This Privacy Policy applies only to web pages owned and operated by American Blind & Shade.

Collection Of Personal Information

INTERNET PROTOCOL ADDRESS—Every computer connected to the Internet is assigned a unique set of numbers that serve as that computer's "Internet Protocol" or "IP" address. As each visitor requests a page from within, our web servers automatically recognize that visitor's IP address. This recognition reveals nothing about the visitor other than the IP address from which they have accessed our site. This information is used to examine our traffic in aggregate, but does not collect or evaluate this information on an individual basis. Our Web Servers do not possess the ability to capture any other personal data without the visitor inputting the information directly.

ACCOUNT PROFILE—Use of the American Blind & Shade website requires account registration in order to view GSA Schedule pricing and customize products for ordering. The contact information you provide in your Account Profile will be used to facilitate order entry and to keep you informed of the status of your order; this information will be never shared with any party not directly involved with the processing of your order. We maintain a strict "No-Spam" policy, which means that we do not sell, rent, or otherwise distribute your e-mail address or contact information to any third party without your consent.

Information Collected When Making A Purchase

When you make a purchase, we require your credit card information in addition to your Account Profile information in order to process and fulfill your order. Your credit card information will be kept strictly confidential at all times and will be never shared with any party not directly involved with the processing of your payment. Your credit card information is never stored on our website.

The website utilizes the industry standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encrypted servers for our shopping cart. The SSL coding encrypts the information transferred between you and the server, rendering it unreadable by anyone trying to intercept the information.
