Information collected on Technocentre or one of our other services such as Technocentre mobile or a Technocentre social media application (i.e. Facebook), may be used in the following ways:
When you visit Technocentre or visit one of our other services such as Technocentre mobile or a Technocentre social media application (i.e. Facebook) and submit personal information, you are sharing that information with Technocentre and the Technocentre-owned and controlled family of companies. We may provide your personal information to our agents, representatives and service providers for limited purposes, including but not limited to, billing customer orders, fulfilling customer orders; communicating to customers; providing customer service; administering opt-in contests or sweepstakes; offering targeted marketing communications to users that opted-in to receive such communications; providing a personalized shopping experience; and preventing online fraud. Except as stated herein, we do not sell, trade, rent or give out your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes.
Finally, we may be required to disclose your personal information to third parties if necessary to comply with applicable laws, subpoenas or court orders.
How you control the collection, usage and distribution of any personal information you provide to Technocentre
As customers ourselves, Technocentre understands and values the importance of giving you, the customer, complete control over the collection, usage and distribution of your personal information.
The security of your personal information is very important to Technocentre. Technocentre uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), the industry standard for Internet Commerce transaction security, to encrypt your credit card and personal information as it travels over the Internet to our secure servers. SSL technology encrypts, or encodes, your credit card and personal information, preventing an unauthorized party from accessing and viewing it. When you enter a secure portion of Technocentre, such as 'Checkout' or 'My Account', your web browser should display a URL address with an "https" prefix and an image of a closed lock or a solid key should appear in the bottom bar of your browser window. In addition, we employ an outside third party company to periodically test the security of our servers and ensure that all credit card and personal information is properly safeguarded. As a result, you can shop with confidence on Technocentre.
Finally, your personal information is protected by the password you created when you signed up for an account at Technocentre. You may change this password anytime by accessing the My Account section of Technocentre. Please keep this password confidential. No representative of Technocentre, including our Customer Service representatives, will ever ask you for your password.
In the future, we may offer updated or enhanced versions of our mobile applications that include additional features created by us or using third party functionality. Our applications or the third party may automatically collect information about your precise location from your device, but only if you allow it.
