We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our database to be only accessed by those authorized with special access rights to our systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.

After each transaction, your personal and private information (tax identification number, social security numbers, financial information, etc.) will be kept on file for more than 60 days in order to process future shipments and comply with applicable import/export regulations.

 

IP addresses

We may collect information about your computer, including where available, your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. This is statistical information about our users’ browsing actions and patterns and does not identify any individual.

 

Do we use cookies?

Yes (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 enable the sites or service providers systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information).

We use cookies to record the existence of a browsing session and to compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.

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. Also, depending on what type of web browser and what browser version you are using, you may be able to change the properties on your cookie file so that cookies are not used or saved. Cookies can also be removed from your hard drive. Please check with your browser provider for more information on removing cookies.

Like most websites, if you decline to accept cookies, some of our services may not function properly (for example, you will not be able to log on to any part of the J. Rotbart & Co. Web-Site which is accessible only to registered users). Where you are unable to log on to the J. Rotbart & Co.-Web-Site due to your declining cookies, you can still place orders by contacting customer service.

 

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

Except as set out in this Privacy Policy, we do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. This may involve our (or our trusted third parties) transferring, storing, or otherwise processing your personal data at a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”).

We may disclose your personal information to third parties:

  • in the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case, we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets;
  • if we, or substantially all of our assets, are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by us about our customers will be one of the transferred assets.

We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce any J. Rotbart & Co. Web-Site policies, or protect our or others’ rights, property, or safety.

Non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

 

Online security

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Whilst we will make all reasonable endeavours to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the J. Rotbart & Co. Web-Site: any such transmission is at your own risk.

These third party websites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these third-party linked websites or for their independent privacy policies.
