What information does Blindsgalore collect?

At the point of a sale in the shopping cart process, Blindgalore will gather certain information such as your name, email address, billing and shipping address, and credit card information. For your protection your credit card information is not stored in our databases. All of our credit card transactions are approved online at the time of placing your order and are transacted by CyberSource. Because your products will be custom made to fit your window, your card will be charged right away in order to begin the production of your order. We do not search your computer for other information or transmit information to any other location.

Why do we gather visitor information?

The information gathered as part of your purchasing is used only to process your purchase and provide you with information about your purchase, such as order confirmations. Once you have placed your order, we may use your email address to tell you about upcoming sales, special offers and new products launches.

The information you submit online is sent securely to Blindsgalore where authorized personnel process your order. We use sophisticated encryption and authentication tools to protect the security of your personal information, including credit cards and passwords - none of which is shared with our manufacturers.

Shipping information, including your name, phone number, and mailing address, is shared with the manufacturers and shipping companies so that you may receive your order. Furthermore, all of our vendors abide by strict privacy and security policies to ensure that this information is only used for the purposes intended - to process your order quickly, accurately and to your satisfaction.

What do we do with this information?

From time to time, Blindsgalore will send promotional emails regarding new products and offers available on our website. After signing up to receive information from Blindsgalore you may opt out of receiving further information from Blindsgalore at any time by following the link provided in each newsletter. If we do collect information for any other purpose, we will always inform you when we collect the information.

We will disclose information that we gather only in the aggregate in order to analyze our usage, attract advertisers, corporate sponsors or merchant affiliates. We take great care and caution to keep whatever information we gather safe. No personal information is ever used for these purposes.
