Your Personal Information
COOLSOCKS.COM takes your privacy seriously. We do not sell, rent, or loan any identifiable information regarding
our customers to any third party. Any information you share with us is held with the utmost care and security, and will
not be used in ways in which you have not agreed.
The COOLSOCKS.COM site contains links to other external sites. COOLSOCKS.COM is not responsible for the
privacy practices or the content of such other sites.
COOLSOCKS.COM uses a form that customers can utilize to request information, products and services. We gather
contact information including but not limited to physical addresses, e-mail addresses, phone numbers and financial
information (account or credit card numbers). Information gathered by COOLSOCKS.COM is for the sole benefit
and use of COOLSOCKS.COM. Contact information from the order form is used to send orders, information about
our company, and promotional materials. The customer’s contact information can also be used to get in touch with
the customer when necessary. Customers may elect not to receive any e-mails should they so desire by emailing
firstname.lastname@example.org and requesting to be removed from any future correspondence.
Financial information such as credit card information, billing address, and shipping address is used to bill the user
for products and services, and to effect shipment. This information is kept strictly confidential and secure. Our
online surveys ask for contact information (typically an e-mail address) and demographic information (such as zip
code, age, or income level). We use contact data from our surveys to send the user promotional material from
We promote contests on our site from time to time where we ask visitors for contact information (typically the
customer’s e-mail address) and demographic information (such as zip code, age, or income level). We use contact
data from our contests to send participants promotional material from COOLSOCKS.COM. The contact information is
also used to contact the customer when necessary (i.e. a contest winner.) Customers may elect not to receive future
mailings. Demographic and profile data is also collected at our site. We use this data to tailor the visitor’s experience
at our site, showing content that we believe they may be interested in, and displaying the content according to their
Information such as credit card numbers are secure and safe. You can enter your credit card number on a secure
(https) form and transmit the form over the Internet to a secure server without risk of an intermediary obtaining
your credit card information. The security features offered by your web browser technology protects commercial
transactions, as well as all other communications, from misappropriation and fraud that could otherwise occur as
information passes through the Internet.
With Secure Socket Layer (SSL) implemented on both your browser and ISP server, your Internet communications
are transmitted in an encrypted form. Information you send can be trusted to arrive securely and privately to the
server you specify and no other. SSL uses authentication and encryption technology. For example, your browser’s
export implementation of SSL (U.S. government approved) uses a High-grade, 128-bit key size. The encryption
established between you and a server remains valid and in place over multiple connections, yet any illegal attempts
to defeat the encryption of one message cannot be leveraged to defeat the encryption of the next message.
Your browser and secure servers deliver server authentication using signed digital certificates issued by trusted third
parties known as certificate authorities. A digital certificate verifies the connection between a server’s public key
and the server’s identification (just as a driver’s license verifies the connection between your photograph and your
personal identification. Cryptographic checks, using digital signatures, ensure that information within a certificate can
You can tell when you have a secure connection by looking at the location (URL) field. If the URL begins with https:/
/ (instead of http://), the document comes from a secure server. You can also verify the security of a document by
examining the security icon in the bottom-left corner of the browser window.
Only your computer and the server can encrypt and decrypt your information. In transit, the information is
meaningless and unreadable. An intermediary can continue to route the data, and even make copies of it, but the
information cannot be decrypted and remains private and safely communicated.
