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

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 and requesting to be removed from any future correspondence.


Financial Information

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

We promote contests on our site from time to time where we ask visitors for contact information (typically the

Secure Transactions

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

be trusted.


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.
