Privacy & Security

At Tech Crawl, we intend to give you as much control as possible over your personal information. You can visit us without revealing any information about yourself. However, there are certain circumstances where we need to collect information from you, like your name and address, in order to process an order. We will always let you know before we attempt to collect personal information from you. 

What do we use your information for?
Information given to us will only be used as needed to either process an order or correspond with you about an order. We do not share or sell any information you give us for any reason or under any circumstances. If you tell us that you do not wish to have this information used as a basis for further contact, we will respect your wishes and delete the relevant information accordingly. 

In order to complete a purchase, you can either create an account or checkout as a guest. Our order forms will request various types of data including: contact information (name, shipping address, etc.) and financial information (billing address, credit card details, etc). This information is used for billing purposes and order fulfillment only. If we encounter difficulty when processing an order, we will use this information to contact you. All your information is collected from a secure web page encrypted for your protection. Tech Crawl is the sole owner of this information. We do not share or sell your information to anyone else under ANY circumstances. We may disclose the information collected to your issuing bank if a fraudulent order is being investigated or disputed by you.

How do we protect your information?
As an eCommerce site, we use Shopify as a means to list our products and a secure platform to collect your payment information. Shopify has level 1 Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance and uses 128 bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to ensure that your credit card data is 100% secure. 

For gateway and actual credit card processing, we use Authorize.net. Authorize.net is one of the world's most trusting payment gateways. They employ industry leading encryption hardware and software methods in addition to various security protocols to protect your information. They are certified as compliant with card association security initiatives including the Visa Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP), MasterCard® (SDP), and Discover Information Security and Compliance (DISC). Following a completed transaction, all credit card information is immediately purged from our systems, and we do not maintain any records of your payment information that can be used to duplicate or use your credit card information without your consent. 

Your information is required to be kept confidential, and only accessible by those authorized with special access rights to the systems mentioned above.

Information Security and Quality
We make it a priority to protect the integrity of your personal information. There are layers of appropriate technical and managerial procedures designed to maintain information that is accurate, current, and complete.
