Privacy Policy

Arc-Zone.com is part of Arc-Zone.Com, Inc. This privacy policy will explain how our organization uses the personal data we collect from you when you use our website.

Topics

Arc-Zone.com may collect the following personally identifying information, depending on your interaction with the website: your name, email address, phone number, fax number, physical address and IP address.

If you pay for your order with a credit card, Arc-Zone.com may record the last four digits of your card and the cardholder's name. Arc-Zone.com will not record your card number, expiration date or the CVV code.

If you place an order with Arc-Zone.com, it will record the public IP address associated with the computer used to place that order. It will also record order details, such as items purchased, order date and time, order’s billing and shipping address, payment method and shipping method.

If you sign up with Google or Facebook, we will collect your social id, name and email associated with that account, sign up date, as well as the IP address of the computer used to sign up for that account.

We collect and process your data when you:

  • Sign up with either a password, Google or Facebook.
  • Place an order.
  • Review a product.
  • Browse through our website.
  • Use our keyword search engine.

Arc-Zone collects your data so that we can:

  • Process your order
  • Manage your account.
  • Send you emails such as order status updates.
  • Contact you for any missing information.
  • Communicate with credit card processing companies.
  • Reduce payment fraud attempts.
  • Audit website use.
  • Cybersecurity.
  • Comply with government regulations on tax collection and payment.
  • Marketing research.

Arc-Zone does not share your data with anyone, except service providers directly involved with your order fulfillment process, such as credit card and shipping companies.

When Arc-zone processes an order, it will send only the required information to the payment processing company you select (either AuthorizeNet or PayPal). It may also send the any required information to the shipping service provider you select (USPS, UPS or FedEx) for delivery.

Arc-zone.com stores data securely in a database located in the same server hosting the website. That data is only accessible from within that server. Once your order is sent to fulfillment, any information that pertains to accounting will be double-encrypted before it is transferred over to our accounting system, located in our main office building in Vista, CA.

In order to keep your account at arc-zone.com active, Arc-zone may keep your data stored in the website’s database. If you are not comfortable with that arrangement, you may request your data to be removed from arc-zone.com's database at any time. Just keep in mind that, in compliance with the Sarbanes Oxley act, any data related to orders placed at arc-zone.com will have to be kept at Arc-Zone’s accounting software for up to 7 years.

Arc-zone may use your browsing information to identify popular products. It may also send you e-mails requesting you to review products you have recently ordered, and notifications about abandoned cart items. If you sign up to receive our newsletter, we may send you e-mails with news, offers and other relevant information.

You have the right, at any time, to request Arc-Zone to stop contacting you for marketing purposes.

Please, let us know if you no longer wish to be contacted. We will honor and respect that.
