Who might get information about me from your company?

We will only share information about you only as permitted by law. We will not share your Nonpublic Personal Information with other companies for their marketing purposes without your consent. There is no need for you to "opt out" or tell us not to do this.

Disclosures include those that we feel are necessary to prevent fraud, perform research or comply with laws. Those that receive this information include, for example, consumer reporting agencies, law enforcement, courts and government agencies. These parties may disclose the information to others as permitted by law. For example, Consumer reporting agencies may disclose Transaction Information received from us, as permitted by law, to other companies with which you do business.

Where it is permitted by law, we may also disclose Application or Transaction Information to service providers that help us to market our products. These service providers may include financial institutions with which we have joint marketing agreements. Back to top

How are you going to protect my information?

We will restrict access to your Non-public Personal Information to employees and others who we feel must use it to fulfill orders and provide service. Their use of the information is limited by law, our employee code of conduct and written agreements where appropriate. We also maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information. Back to top

How can I review and correct any information you have about me?

We also use Web Site Information to analyze use of our Web sites. Information that does not identify you, or that you give us for contests and surveys, may be used for marketing purposes.

Per your request, we may also use your e-mail address to provide updates about our products and services. You can stop receiving these e-mail updates any time you like. To make sure you get our e-mail, we or our service provider may receive confirmations when you open them or click-through e-mail links.

What about the Web site security?

The security measures we take at BedInABox.com help ensure that your information and data is secured and encrypted, so that others cannot access it while it is in transit or any other time. We limit access to our servers and require our employees to adhere to the highest standards of business ethics and integrity when performing their jobs.

We use what is known as a secure server and security protocols to safeguard any information you provide during your purchase process. Our secure server uses a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to interact with you when you provide personal information during your purchase process. We handle your information via 256-bit encryption. Every secure page on our website has a digital certificate by Digicert™. This is shown via the site certificate that resides on all secure pages. To view it, click on the image of the "closed lock" or the "solid key" at the bottom of your browser window. A small frame that displays security information will appear. Click on "subject" to verify that you are actually on our site. Click on "Issuer" to verify who the site certification authority is. Back to top

What about links from our site to other websites?

Our website may have links to other sites that do not belong to us. These links are for your convenience. We make no warranties about other websites. We recommend that you read the privacy and security policy of sites you visit. Back to top
