Transactions of this Site are managed by computer equipment which we refer to as a "Web Server" or "Web Servers". For each visitor to the Site, our Web Servers automatically recognize information regarding the visitor's domain name (or that of the visitor's access provider), their computer's unique Internet Protocol Address (or "I.P. Address") and e-mail address. Our Web Servers also have the ability to capture information on the visitor's product selection, the time of their visit, as well as the type of web-browser and personal computer they employ while visiting our Site. Regardless of the purpose for which Personal Information is submitted, it is Brahmin Leather Work's policy to maintain all Personal Information as confidential, and to use such Personal Information for the following purposes:
- for the specific purpose for which it was volunteered (for example, to purchase a product, to enter a contest, or to comment on our products or Site, etc.);
- to improve the content, appearance and utility of the Site;
- to track our visitors' use of the Site for internal market research or other business purposes;
- to notify our visitors of updates to the Site; and,
- to allow the visitor to store temporary information such as product-selections for up to 48 hours.
This is in case the visitor's computer or any of our Web Servers malfunction. In such case, the visitor will be able to resume transactions on our Site at a later time when all required computers are up and running.
Like many Web sites, we use "cookies", which are files stored on your computer's hard drive by your browser. Cookies allow us to identify account holders and to optimize their shopping experience. Cookies also allow us to maintain items in a shopping cart when a user leaves this Web site without checking out. Cookies also allow us to collect and store information about a customer that enable us to provide product recommendations and special offers that we think will be of interest. Most browsers accept cookies automatically but allow you to disable them. We recommend that you leave cookies "turned on" so that we can offer you a better shopping experience on this Web site.
Brahmin Leather Works will not notify our visitors of updates by e-mail if they explicitly note that they do not wish to receive e-mail on future sales promotions. In such case, we will ONLY notify them by e-mail and/or mail concerning the specific purpose for which Personal Information was volunteered (for example, if they submit an order, they will receive an e-mail confirming the order, and/or may be contacted by e-mail or by phone in order to correct any mistakes made on that order).
Visitors have the ability to note their wish to not receive product updates by entering that information on our Web Severs' web pages in which they supply their e-mail address. Web pages which request their e-mail address exist when they "Checkout" items for final purchase, and when they revisit our Site in order to view a past order.
All Personal Information is stored in a central database on our Web Servers, protected by a secure Firewall, and is changeable only by the visitor when they supply the requesting Web Server their proper e-mail address and password supplied earlier. All personal information such as e-mail addresses and passwords are transmitted to and from our Web Servers using SSL encryption technology for every transaction. For more information on the security of our site, please review information about SSL technology on this page or on our Customer Service page.
