How we protect your information
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order. All transactions are processed through a gateway provider and are not stored or processed on our servers. In addition, all sensitive/credit information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. Our website is scanned on a regular basis for security holes and known vulnerabilities to make your visit to our site as safe as possible. We also use regular Malware Scanning.

What are ‘cookies’?
Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and remember certain information.
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 through your browser settings. Look at your browser’s Help Menu to learn how to modify your cookies. Turning off cookies won’t affect your Furniture Bank site experience.
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personally Identifiable Information unless we provide you with advance notice. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who help us operate our website, conduct our business, or serve our users, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release information when appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies or protect ours or others’ rights, property or safety.
Non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising or other uses.
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third-party products or services on our website. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. However, if you feel any of these third parties are misusing information, we welcome your feedback.

Do Not Track signals

California Online Privacy Protection Act
Protecting your children’s privacy
We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old. When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the United States consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.
Fair Information Practices
Should a data breach occur, we will notify you via email and provide in-site notifications within 7 business days.
According to the Individual Redress Principle, you have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
