Security of Sensitive Information

Better Homesteading is committed to preventing others from unauthorised access to the personal information that you provide to us, and we maintain commercially reasonable procedures and technology which is designed for this purpose. The BetterHomesteading.com website has reasonable technical and structural security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorised third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes.

When our registration and order forms asks users to enter sensitive information, such as credit card number, that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry, 128-bit SSL. While on a Paypal secure page, such as our order form, the lock of Web browsers such as Fire Fox and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when users are just looking for information off the web.

We make our best efforts to ensure user information protection off-line. All of our user information, including the sensitive information just mentioned, is restricted within our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing specialist or a customer service agent) are granted access to personal information. The servers that store personal information are in a secure environment.

The Information We Collect at BetterHomesteading.com

We request information from the user when ordering services or products. A user may be required to provide information (such as name, email, and/or shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer’s orders. If we have difficulty in processing an order, the information is used to contact the user. This information is only shared with other companies who work on behalf of Better Homesteading to provide a product or service to you. Unless we tell you otherwise, these companies do not have any right to use your personal information we provide to them beyond what is necessary to assist us. We may also use this information to inform you of additional goods and services which you may be interested in, or to customise your service and use of the BetterHomesteading.com website.

We may ask you for personal information in connection with promotions or data collection. Any email you receive from us, or third parties authorised by you to send email, will contain additional unsubscribe options in the message with instructions on how to unsubscribe from receiving future emails.

We may gather general information about our website and visitors, such as IP addresses, browsers, pages views, number of visitors, goods and services purchased, transactions completed, etc. To do this, we use tags and cookies provided by our site analytics and marketing partners. Although these partners log the information coming from our site or for us, we authorise how the data may be used.

Log Files

Like most standard website servers, we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site and gather general demographic information. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Use of Non-Medical Information

Our goal is to provide products that serve your requirements; therefore we evaluate your interactions with us in an effort to deliver the information which best suit your tastes. In addition, we use your information to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to analyse our site usage, to improve our content and product and services offerings and to customise our site’s content, form and services.

If you place a request for information or services, we use your personal information to fulfil your order; if the information or services are from a retail partner, we may provide your relevant information to that retailer for purposes of the transaction. If you establish a credit account with us or our providers, we collect additional information, including billing information, credit card number and expiration date, and tracking information from checks or money orders.

We may also use or disclose information to resolve disputes or investigate problems. We may disclose or access information whenever we believe in good faith that the law so requires or if we otherwise consider it necessary to do so to maintain service and improve our products and services.

We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our servers, to manage our website and to enhance our site based on the usage pattern data we receive.
