Privacy Policy

Security and Privacy

1Contacts.com recognizes the need for solid security and complete privacy.

Solid security and complete privacy are major concerns of Internet shoppers. Users want to be positive that the information they provide over the net is secure and will be kept in confidence. We use several layers of robust security technology to help ensure the confidentiality of transactions across the Internet.

Security

This web site provides a secure environment for registration and transactions. 1Contacts.com site does require a browser that supports 40-bit encryption technology (see below).

Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Explorer provide secure browser capability that ensures that the dialogue between your PC and our Secure Web Server remains confidential and cannot be deciphered by possible "eavesdropping" on the Internet. 1Contacts.com utilizes Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. You can identify that you are in an SSL session by the "locked" padlock icon at the bottom of your browser screen (or an unbroken key for older versions of the browsers).

What is 40-bit encryption technology?
Encryption scrambles all information between your computer and our servers and 40-bit encryption guarantees a high level of security, privacy and confidentiality.

This web site is secured using a Thawte Digital Certificate. This ensures that all information you send to us via the World Wide Web will be encrypted. If any other internet user intercepts the communication he/she will only be able to see it in an encrypted (garbled) form.Certificate technology allows us to decrypt the information, and view it in plain text form. For more information on SSL digital certificates for web servers please see http://www.thawte.com/html/RETAIL/ssl/index.html.

We take security very seriously. As an additional safeguard, all orders and personal information can only be accessed by authorized employees.

Privacy

1Contacts.com is a company run by eye care professionals. We pledge to follow the same rules and respect for your personal information as any health professional. Your personal information will be stored encrypted and will never be released to anyone except you.
