My Privacy Guarantee is really quite simple:
I respect yours.
If you need more detail than that, please read on.
I believe that clients like you deserve to be treated with the utmost respect. And that includes respecting your right to privacy. Here’s how I guarantee that.
Data Collection and Storage
I’ve designed and structured my entire site so that you can visit and browse without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information. The only way for me to obtain any personal information about you at all is for you to tell me yourself.
For example, when you place an order or ask me for information, I may store your name, address and telephone number and/or email address on my secure server. Any information that is not needed immediately to process your order or request is transferred to my secure, offline database which cannot be accessed from the Internet. Your credit card number will be deleted automatically from my secure servers 31 days after you order (unless you have requested an ongoing subscription). To comply with tax laws, I may keep a printed copy of your order on file in my Accounting Department.
Your Email Address
Your email address may be automatically added to my internal database whenever you:
1. Place an order.
2. Request a quote.
3. Subscribe to my Dating Tips for Guys newsletter.
4. Request additional information by email.
To “unsubscribe” or delete your email address from my list, simply send a blank email with “remove” in the subject line to: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also mail your request to me at: Morpheus Productions, PO Box 5845, Salem, OR 97304.
Like most online merchants, my website uses “cookies” to enhance your online shopping experience. Cookies are just little packages of data that my server sends to your computer. They cannot tell me anything about you or your computer and no other website or server except mine can access the cookies my site sends. Cookies simply allow me to track the contents of your shopping cart and personalize my site content. Without them, you’d have to write down each item you wanted to buy and then type the information into a manual form to complete your order. What a hassle!
Thanks to cookies, ordering is quick and easy. You can browse all my product pages, just click on the items you want to add to your cart and my system will store them until you’re ready to check out. And, when you come back to shop the next time, you won’t have to re-enter your name and address info again – the cookies remember it for you, so that the checkout process is quick and convenient every time you shop. For your peace of mind though, I will ask you to re-enter your credit information every time you shop. I don’t permit my cookies to store this information. This also allows you to choose a different payment option, if you wish.
My server automatically receives and records information on my server logs from your browser including your IP Address and information about the page you have requested to view. This tells us which pages my clients are most interested in, and helps me tailor my site according to my customers’ wants and needs.
Surveys and Questionnaires
From time to time, I may post an online survey or questionnaire. Your participation is completely voluntary, but greatly appreciated because these help me by providing opinions, demographic or customer satisfaction data. I use that information to enhance my customers’ online experience by tailoring my products and services according to your preferences and by offering the site content that interests you most.
How I Use your Personal Information
If you have ordered from me or requested any information, I will have personal information such as your name, mailing address and/or email address on file. I may use this information for my own purposes only – to send you promotional offers, my Dating Tips newsletter or customer satisfaction surveys for feedback on your purchases.
Occasionally, I may use your email address to let you know about new products, services or special offers on my site that I think would interest you. I might also email previous customers for feedback on their shopping experience. Any message I send you will always include clear, simple instructions for having your name and information permanently deleted from my lists, if you prefer.
Security of your Information
On all of my sites, I have several security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information I control. These measures include password protection, encryption and my off-line database, which is not accessible by those on the Internet. I also conduct pre-hire criminal background checks on ALL my employees.
My Information Non-Disclosure GUARANTEE
I will never sell, rent, give, share or otherwise disclose to any third party any information that you may provide to me about you, your business, your website or your methods and procedures, without your knowledge or consent without a subpoena or court order.
How to Change your Information or Opt Out
If you wish to have me remove your personal information from my databases, simply send a blank email with “remove” in the subject line to: email@example.com. You can also mail your request to me at: Morpheus Productions, PO Box 5845, Salem, OR 97304.
If you need to update the information I currently have on file (new address/email address, etc.), please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also mail your request to me at: Morpheus Productions, PO Box 5845, Salem, OR 97304.
I Hate Spam, Too!
I’m committed to a strict “No Spam” policy. Whenever you receive any message from me, it will contain clear, simple instructions for having your name and information permanently removed from my lists.
Please note: For tax and legal purposes, I am not allowed to destroy paper records of orders placed with me. However, I will comply with ALL requests to remove your information from my email and print mailing lists.
All reputable websites promise secure online shopping.
But at my sites, I GUARANTEE it!
That’s right! You’ll never have to worry about credit card safety when you invest in my products and services. Here’s what makes my site so safe and secure.
I use the most advanced encryption software available
My system uses the latest 128-bit encryption Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. It’s the best software available today for secure online commerce transactions. It works by encrypting all your personal information (name, address, credit card number) so that it cannot be read as it travels over the Internet. This is the same strength encryption technology used by giants like Microsoft and Amazon.com. Even though billions of dollars are spent online every year, these websites along with VISA and Netscape, have not been able to document even one single example of credit card fraud resulting from someone having stolen credit card information from a system that’s protected by this industry-standard Internet security technology. Not one!
My Own Track Record
I own and have owned many different online business. I use this same technology at all of my companies and after thousands upon thousands of online transactions, none of my customers have ever reported fraudulent use of a credit card as a result of purchases made online at any of my businesses. None!
Using Your Credit Card is Safer than a Using a Check
If there is a problem with any purchase, your credit card company will remove that purchase from your statement. By law, they cannot hold you responsible for more than $50.00 of unauthorized use of your card.
Safer Than Using The Phone
Placing an order through my secure server is much safer than placing a telephone order over a cordless or cellular phone. Anyone with an inexpensive scanner from any electronics store can monitor everything that you say. (If you insist on using the phone, please use a landline model, not a cordless or cell phone).
MY SAFE SHOPPING GUARANTEE: If you suspect that unauthorized use of your credit card has occurred as a result of your credit card purchase with me, please notify your credit card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures. If your credit card company determines that you are the victim of fraud but does not waive the $50 liability for unauthorized charges, I will cover the entire liability for you, up to the full $50!
How do I know if my online session is encrypted?
Most browsers will show a lock icon in the bottom status bar on secure pages. Look for this icon on any web page that asks for your personal information. Also, you’ll notice that the Internet address of the page begins with “https” The “s” in the address means that our secure server has asked your computer’s Web browser software to encrypt all information with super-secure, 128-bit encryption technology before transmitting it.
Security of Information
DD Publications has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. These include password protection, advanced encryption technology and our offline database, which cannot by accessed by anyone on the Internet. I also conduct pre-hire criminal background checks on ALL employees.

Changes to This Policy
I reserve the right to amend this policy as needed. But I’ll never change my Information Non-Disclosure Guarantee. If I make any substantial changes in my use of your personal information or if I am required by law to share your data, I will notify you.
