How we obtain information
We receive information when you submit it via web forms, email, facsimile, etc.
As with most web sites, we also receive demographic information through the use of "cookies", and "log files" in order to improve functionality.
A cookie is a small data file placed on the userís computer that stores information about that user. Cookies are in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. We set cookies to improve your overall experience.
How we protect information
All sensitive information (such as credit card numbers) is transmitted via secure servers which provides data encryption, server authentication, message integrity and client authentication for TCP/IP connections by the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol. This is standard procedure throughout the US.
What's SSL all about?
Web browsers can operate in "normal" mode and in "secure" mode. You can tell which mode your browser is in by looking at the toolbar at the bottom of the browser window. If you see a key or the closed (locked) padlock you are in "secure" mode. Also the web address will start with https.
So, how safe is my credit card number and contact information?
An order placed with Central Carolina Scale is very safe. Our sales staff and accounting staff understand the importance of your personal information and work to insure your information is safe and secure.
