Security & Privacy
Information Collected - We may collect the following information: name, phone number, mailing and/or shipping addresses, email address, as well as demographic information such as preferences and interests and other information relevant to customer surveys and/or offers.
Information Use - We collect this information to understand your needs and provide you with better products and services, and in particular for the following reasons:
Internal record keeping. We may use the information to improve our products, marketing efforts and customer service.
We may periodically send promotional email or social media postings about new products, special offers from MEDport, or one of our third party partners, contests, or other information which we think you may find interesting.
We may also contact you for market research purposes.
We may use the information to customize our website according to your interests.
We will NEVER sell your information.
Security - We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, we have put in place exceptional physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology, with a digital certificate provided by VeriSign. SSL encrypts your order information to avoid the decoding of that information by anyone other than MEDport.
To check the security of your connection, look at the lower left-hand corner of your browser window after accessing the server. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending upon your browser), then SSL is considered active.
You can also double-check by looking at the URL line of your browser. When accessing a secure server, the first characters of the site address will change from "http" to "https."
Some versions of browsers and some firewalls don't permit communication through secure servers.
In that case, you'll be unable to connect to the server so you won't have to worry about mistakenly placing an order through an unsecured connection.
If you can't access the secure server for whatever reason, please place your order by phone or email. That information can be found here (link to Customer Care).
