YOUR PURCHASE IS ALWAYS SAFE
AND SECURE AT AsianPearls.net
Asian Pearls takes every precaution
to protect our users information. When users submit sensitive
information via the website, your information is protected both
online and off-line.
When our order form asks users
to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that
information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption
software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as
our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such
as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes
locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just surfing.
While we use SSL encryption to
protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in
our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users
information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above,
is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information
to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a
customer service representative) are granted access to personally
identifiable information. Our employees must use password-protected
screen-savers when they leave their desk. When they return, they
must re-enter their password to re-gain access to your information.
Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security
and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new
policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded
about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do
to ensure our customers information is protected. Finally,
the servers that we store personally identifiable information
on are kept in a secure environment, behind a locked cage.
If you have any questions about
the security at our website, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

We also send the user site and
service announcement updates. Members are able to unsubscribe
from service announcements. We communicate with the user to provide
requested services and in regards to issues relating to their
account via email.
Notification of Changes

policy, we will post those changes on our Web-Site so our users
