    You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed; however, because we keep track of past purchases for reasons of accountability and statistics-gathering, you cannot delete information associated with past purchases.

    In order to most efficiently serve you, established third party banking institutions handle credit card transactions. They receive the information needed to verify and authorize your credit card-or other payment information-to process your order.
    We also want you to understand the depth of the precautions that we take to ensure your security. These precautions include the following methods.

    Secure Internet Transactions

    PartsLogistics uses industry-standard secure server software (Secure Socket Layers) to protect your privacy. You are routed through the secure server upon logging in with the correct username and password.

    There are several ways to make sure that you are browsing secure pages within PartsLogistics. Both Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator indicate secure modes with the symbol of a closed padlock. Anytime this symbol appears, in either of the lower corners of your screen, your information is protected. You can also verify secure pages by checking the address, or URL, listed on the location bar. If there is an "s" after the "http" at the beginning of the address, you are browsing in a secure environment.

    Personnel Security Precautions

    Internally, we restrict access to personally identifiable information to employees who need access to the information in order to do their jobs. All employees working with this information are very limited in number and are committed to our privacy and security policies.
