PRIVACY POLICY

What information does this site and Chelonist.com monitor? And How?

When you browse the site, we do not collect personal information about you. The only way we will get any kind of personal information is if you give it to us.

The company requires that consumers supply personal information, including e-mail addresses, phone/fax numbers, during the ‘Instant Pricing’ process. Contact information of our visitors or customers is often used to respond to questions, concerns, complaints, technical support questions and requests for information.

We at Chelonist.com are constantly researching the latest in technology to ensure that we are able to give you the most effective and informative experience on our site. An integral part of this is the use of permanent “cookies”.

What is a Cookie? A “cookie” is a small text file that a website can send to your browser and store on your computer’s hard drive in order, for example, to collect information about your activities on the site or to make it possible for you to use an online “shopping cart” to keep track of items you wish to purchase. The cookie transmits this information back to the Web Site’s computer, which, generally speaking, is the only computer that can read it, often because the cookie includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you return to a particular site, it may request the retrieval of one of these “cookies”, and the information received will be used to personalize that sites content for you.

Most consumers do not know that “cookies” are being placed in their computers when they visit websites. If you want to know when this happens, or to prevent it from happening, you can configure your browser to warn you when a website attempts to places a “cookie” on your computer’s hard drive.

You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. (Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preference).

You understand and agree that the Service is provided "AS-IS" and that Chelonist.com assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, mis-delivery or failure to store any user communications or personalization settings.
