TERMS AND CONDITIONS
For the purposes of these terms and conditions, the company. SLS Publications, LLC shall also be referred to as “SLS Publications” or “SLS” and the consumer shall be referred to as “subscriber” or “user.”
SLS collects information from the subscriber/user when he or she registers on any SLS site, places an order or purchases access to SLS training program software.
When ordering or registering on SLS site(s), as appropriate, the user may be asked to enter his or her name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, credit card information and/or occupation.
The user’s information, whether public or private, will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any other company for any reason whatsoever, without his or her consent, other than for the express purpose of delivering the purchased product or service requested.
SLS Publications, LLC collects only limited personal information from the subscriber/user. Any of the information SLS collects from the user may be used in one of the following ways: to process transactions; to improve SLS offerings; to improve customer service; to administer a contest, promotion, survey or other site feature; or to send periodic emails, if appropriate. The email address the user provides may be used to send him or her information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.
In order to protect the user’s information, SLS implements a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of the user’s personal information when he or she places an order:
- SLS offers the use of a secure server with 256 bit encryption and dedicated IP address; all supplied credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into the Payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. After the payment transaction, the subscriber’s credit card information is not stored but rather deleted.
- SLS utilizes an enterprise level data base to back up non-credit card information.
- SLS does not use standard pop-ups without warning.
- SLS maintains the ability to track IP addresses for the security of all interested parties.
- After each subscriber’s account has expired, the user’s account is deactivated.
SLS does not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties the user’s personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who may assist SLS in operating its website, conducting company business, or servicing the subscriber, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. SLS may also release user information when the company believes such release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce SLS site policies, or protect company or others’ rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
California Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance. Because SLS values its subscribers’ privacy, the company has taken the necessary precautions to be in compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act.
