If you send us personal correspondence, such as e-mails or letters, or if other users or third parties send us correspondence about your activities on the Website, we may collect such information in a confidential file that will be accessible only by authorized personnel.

Safeguarding the Information We Collect

The security of your information is important to us. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we implement certain physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. All sensitive credit information provided by our users is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway provider’s database for access only by those persons having special access to such systems, and who are required to keep such information strictly confidential.

We also work to protect user information offline. All of your information is housed in secure, access-restricted areas. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific function are granted access to personally identifiable information.

ALTHOUGH STATEBOOK WILL USE REASONABLE EFFORTS TO PROVIDE ALL OF THE FOREGOING SECURITY FEATURES, AND TO TREAT ALL DATA IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE POLICIES SET FORTH HEREIN, AS WITH VIRTUALLY ANY COMPUTER SYSTEM, THERE CAN BE NO ABSOLUTE ASURANCE THAT SECURITY BREACHES WILL NOT OCCUR AND STATEBOOK HEREBY DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY WHATSOEVER FOR ANY SUCH SECURITY BREACHES.

In other words, since the Internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to the Website. There is no guarantee that information may not be accessed, copied, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breaches of any of our physical, technical or managerial safeguards.

Cookies

Like most websites, the Website uses “cookies” and web log files to track Website usage and trends, to improve the quality of our service, and to customize your experience on the Website. A cookie is a small data file that can be stored on your computer, mobile phone, or other device, and allows us to recognize you as a user when you return to the Website using the same computer and web browser. One type of cookie, known as a “persistent” cookie, is set once you’ve logged in to your account. The next time you visit the Website, the persistent cookie will allow us to recognize you as an existing user so you will not need to log in before using the Website. In order to access or change any of your private information (like a credit card number), however, you must log in securely again with your password even if your computer contains your persistent cookie. Another type of cookie, called a “session” cookie, is used to identify a particular visit to the Website. Session cookies expire after a short time or when you close your web browser. We use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart, understand and save your preferences for future visits and compile aggregate data about Website traffic and Website interactions so that we can offer better Website experiences and tools in the future. We also use cookies to personalize your visit and make it more user-friendly.

You can remove, block or disable cookies using the settings in your browser. If you prefer, you can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies via your browser settings. Like most Websites, if you turn your cookies off, some of our services may not function properly. However, you can still place orders over the telephone or by contacting customer service at info@statebook.com or (845) 383-1991.

We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our Website visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.
