How Top Shelf Responds to Do Not Track Signals
How Top Shelf Protects and Uses Personal Information
Top Shelf works to protect the security of Personal Information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts the information that is transmitted on the Site. Information is stored with an AES-256 encryption. Top Shelf uses the Personal Information of a User to market its products, process purchases and communicate with customers, and to respond to customer service or support questions. Top Shelf may employ companies and individuals to perform functions on Top Shelf’s behalf. Examples may include providing marketing assistance, performing statistical analysis, providing customer service and processing payments. These companies and individuals will have access to the Personal Information only as necessary to perform their functions, and may not access or use it for any other purpose.
Top Shelf has appropriate security measures in place within its database and physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information that has been collected on the Site. These measures include limiting the number of people who have physical access to Top Shelf’s database servers, as well as electronic security systems and password protections which guard against unauthorized access. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards. Please be aware, however, that we are unable to guarantee the absolute security of the Personal Information we have collected from you.
Top Shelf may also use a User’s Personal Information to notify the User of Top Shelf’s products via periodic mailings or e-mail updates. Users may opt-out of these communications as noted below.
Top Shelf will not sell Personal Information of any User. However, in the event Top Shelf goes through an organizational transition, such as a merger, acquisition or other strategic relationship, the Personal Information of Top Shelf’s Users and other customers will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred or shared.
