Safeguarding Information The information you provide to the Trade-Wind web site covered by this policy is protected in transit by using a network protocol called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL is the industry standard technology for secure online transactions. Transactions are processed only from secure browsers. These browsers encrypt the information sent using SSL, which scrambles the data to make it extremely difficult for anyone who intercepts the information to read it. TradeWind has contracted with an internet commerce transaction service vendor with the goal of protecting our customers’ personal and financial information. Transmissions from this vendor to credit card processors also are encrypted and sent via dedicated leased private circuits. In addition, the computers housing the data are protected by physical security measures, including more than one level of locked access. REMINDER: In the event of an unauthorized use of your credit or debit card, you must promptly notify the card issuer pursuant to its reporting rules and procedures. To minimize the risk of loss and/or additional expenses that could occur from compromised cardholder information, Trade-Wind merchants WILL NOT retain any of the following information electronically: • Credit Card number •Credit Card expiration date number in the magnetic stripe • Security Code (CVV2/CVC2 number) • Service Code -3 or 4 digit The protection of your personal information is important to Trade-Wind, and as a result, we do not accept payment via email. Trade-Wind protects against unauthorized disclosures by limiting access only to those of our employees who need the information to do their jobs.
