The GPS Store, Inc. is committed to maintaining your confidence and trust, and to protect any personal information provided online, therefore we offer the following privacy policy.

Basic confidentiality policy
It is our policy that personal information, such as your name, postal and email address or telephone number, is private and confidential. Accordingly, the personal information you supply is stored in a secure location, is accessible only by designated staff, and is used only for the purposes for which you provide the information (such as to respond to a request or to process your order).
We do send occasional emails to our customers with promotions and/or special offers. You may opt out of these emails at any time.

No Release of information
Personal information will not be released to any third parties except to further the purpose for which you provide the information (such as confirming an address for credit card processing). We do not provide or sell information to third parties for any other reason.

Statistics Tracking
While our website does track statistics about visits to our website such as daily number of visitors, most popular pages and referrals to our website, the statistics contain no personal information, and are used strictly internally to provide better service.

Secure Online Ordering

We take security seriously as our website offers secure ordering for your protection. Our Internet uses SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), an encryption technology that works with Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer and AOL's browser so that only The GPS Store can read a buyer's personal information. All account information submitted to us is safely isolated from unauthorized Internet access. Credit cards are not charged until the day the items are shipped.

Nevertheless, if you prefer, we also offer you the option of submitting your order by telephone, fax, or mail.

Secure Certificate has Expired warning - not so...

If you place an order through our secure ordering system and you are using an older version of Netscape (4.05 or earlier) or Microsoft IE 4 for the Mac, a dialog box may appear stating the secure certificate has expired. You can click "Continue" to proceed with a secure connection or you can upgrade your web browser to avoid this message entirely. Older web browsers have their secure certificates set to expire at the end of 1999 which causes this problem. The server side certificate which is used in this ordering process is current.
