INFORMATION COLLECTED FROM CHILDREN
We are committed to preserving online privacy for all of our website visitors, including children. The website is a general audience site, and we do not knowingly collect information about children or sell products to children. We will not knowingly collect any information from children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, you must ask your parent or guardian to assist you in using www.safariland.com. Furthermore, we may restrict entries to any contests, sweepstakes or promotions to entrants who are at least 18 years of age.
CALIFORNIA CONSUMER PRIVACY RIGHTS
Please read our California Privacy Disclosures for additional information required under the California Consumer Privacy Act.
We restrict access to personal information collected about you at our website to our employees, our affiliates’ employees, or others who need to know that information to provide services to you or in the course of conducting our normal business operations. While no website can guarantee security, we use commercial reasonable efforts to maintain appropriate physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information collected via the website. We protect our databases with various physical, technical and procedural measures and we restrict access to your information by unauthorized persons. We also advise all Company employees about their responsibility to protect customer data and we provide them with appropriate guidelines for adhering to our Company’s business ethics standards and confidentiality policies.
SECURITY OF YOUR CREDIT CARD DATA
We use a third-party payment management company (“Braintree”) in order to process credit card transactions. You can read more about Braintree by clicking here. Braintree utilizes a process known as “tokenization” in order to securely process credit card transactions when you provide your credit card data to us. Tokenization is the replacement of sensitive data with a unique identifier that cannot be mathematically reversed. Within our environment, tokens take the place of sensitive credit card data. The token will retain the last four digits of the card as a means of accurately matching the token to the payment card owner. The remaining numbers are generated using proprietary tokenization algorithms.
- To make a purchase on the website, the customer will enter their payment card information into the designated payment fields on the order page. These payment fields will be hosted by Braintree using Secure Acceptance. When you submit your credit card data to Safariland, the data is immediately encrypted and transmitted directly to Braintree for storing, processing, and token generation. The payment data is not stored or retained by us.
- The encrypted primary account number (PAN) is decrypted when it enters Braintree’s Level 1, PCI-compliant data vault, where it is securely stored. The payment data is then passed on to the processing channel (bank) and returned to Braintree with an accepted or denied result.
- Braintree returns the result to us but substitutes the PAN data with a uniquely generated token. The token is stored by Safariland for future transactions. Safariland performs quarterly scans in order to demonstrate compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (“PCI-DSS”).
