Privacy Policy

This document explains American NEEDLE GUARD’s (“ANG”) policies for the collection, use and disclosure of personal information.

This policy forms part of, and should be read in conjunction with, our Terms of Use.

ANG believes that privacy is crucial for the ongoing success of Internet commerce. Our status as an Internet merchant requires us to have a stringent policy regarding all of the information that we collect.

Your use of this site or the services of our certified payment gateway, PayPal, constitutes acceptance of these terms and conditions. If you do not agree with these policies, please cease using this site immediately. For PayPal’s privacy policy please see  www.paypal.com/ca/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full?locale.x=en_CA.

These terms were last revised on January 5, 2020. ANG reserves the right to amend these policies from time to time. If such amendments affect how ANG uses or discloses personal information already held by ANG in a material and adverse way over and above previous express or implied consent, ANG will contact you to obtain consent. ANG takes reasonable precautions to ensure your privacy on the terms contained in this policy.

ANG uses reasonable efforts to, but cannot totally prevent, unintended disclosures by such means as hackers and other unauthorized individuals, and inadvertent or illicit employee actions.

Cardholder Provided Information:

Our electronic purchase service requires that cardholders provide contact information (including without limitation: name, address, city, state or province, postal code, country, telephone and email), and financial information (including without limitation: name on credit card, credit card number and expiry date), and ordering information to PayPal. This information is collected and used to process the transaction and for internal accounting and other procedures.

Information Automatically Collected:

Our web site keeps track of usage data, such as the source address that a page request is coming from, your IP address or domain name, the date and time of the page request, the referring web site (if any) and other parameters in the URL. The IP addresse collected by PayPal are linked to personally identifiable information. This is collected in order to combat fraud during the purchase process. We also use this data to better understand Web site usage in the aggregate so that we know what areas of our Web site users prefer. Automatically collected information is also used for the same purposes as customer/cardholder supplied information.

Sharing of Information:

PayPal is acting as an intermediary between ANG and a user’s credit card company. Certain information submitted through the electronic purchase service (excluding credit card numbers) is shared with ANG by PayPal so that we can fulfill the order. Information is also shared with other parties necessary to complete credit card transactions, including, without limitation, companies related to ANG, credit card companies, credit card clearing houses and processors, and financial institutions.

Except for the above parties, and for use by ANG’s consultants and professional advisers on ANG’s behalf for the uses disclosed herein, ANG does not share personal information with any other third parties.

Order Form / Email Inquiries:

No information sent to ANG via email or the website order form is used for any reason other than to respond to and maintain a record of the inquiry or order. This information is not sent to third parties or retained for mailing list purposes.

Security:

ANG takes measures to protect and keep information secure. All online credit card transactions from this website are processed through PayPal. Once you click on the “Add to Cart” button on ANG’s online order form you are taken to PayPal’s secure server. PayPal’s electronic purchase service is secured with SSL encryption. All information collected by ANG is held offline, secured via SSL encryption, and protected by a firewall. Whenever sensitive information is transmitted to PayPal through their Web site, such as a credit card number, their server provides 128-bit encryption of the information as it travels across the Internet. PayPal restricts
internal access to personal information to selected members of PayPal’s staff.
