INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
DJ Fossils & Minerals is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. DJ Fossils & Minerals collects information from our users at different points on our website.

ORDERING
We request information from the user on our order form. Here a user must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer's orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.

CREDIT CARDS
We do not store credit cards details ourselves. Credit card payments are processed by << paypal >>

COOKIES
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the browsing session. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. The cookie simply terminates after a period of time. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to re-enter any shopping cart information, thereby saving time. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site although shopping cart functionality will be unavailable.

LOG FILES
We use IP addresses to analyse trends, administer the site, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

SHARING
We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. We may use a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

LINKS
This web site may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

SECURITY
This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. When our order form 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 - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information.

CORRECTING/UPDATING PERSONAL INFORMATION
If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as your post code), or if a user no longer desires our service, the user can contact us and we will correct, update or remove that user's personal data provided to us.

We use the reCAPTCHA service provided by Google Inc. (Google) to protect your submissions via internet submission forms on this site. This plugin checks if you are a person in order to prevent certain website functions from being (ab)used by spam bots (particularly comments).

For this purpose your input will be communicated to and used by Google. However, your IP address is previously truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are party to the agreement on the European Economic Area and is, as such, anonymized. Only in exceptional cases is a full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address provided by reCaptcha from your browser shall not be merged with any other data from Google.
