Thank you for visiting www.drpower.com. When you visit our website, your security and privacy becomes our responsibility. That's why every transaction you make with us is treated with safety, security, and confidentiality.
We realize that you may have concerns about placing an order online and sending us your credit card number over the Internet. For your security, orders placed on our site are encrypted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology, which ensures that your transaction is protected. The information you send to us via the Internet can be trusted to arrive privately and unaltered. Please note that e-mail is not encrypted and is not considered a secure means of transmitting credit card numbers. If you would like to learn more about Secure Shopping on our website, see below. Or, if you have any questions regarding Secure Shopping on our website, please contact us via Live Chat, email or phone.
Your Credit Card Number is Secure
When you use your credit card to shop at drpower.com, rest assured that the transaction is secure. Our servers use Secure Socket Layer (SSL), an advanced encryption technology that works with Netscape Navigator (versions 2.0 and above), Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 3.0 and above), and AOL (AOL 3.0 and above). This technology safeguards your personal information and guarantees privacy.
You are Protected Against Credit Card Fraud
In the unlikely event that your credit card is subject to fraudulent charges as a result of making a purchase at drpower.com, you are completely protected. Under federal law (the Fair Credit Act), your credit card company can hold you liable for no more than $50 in fraudulent charges to your account. If, for whatever reason, you are held responsible for this amount, Country Home Products, (home of DR® Power Equipment) will cover the entire liability for you, up to $50. Your credit card company will cover the rest.
How to Check the Security of Your Browser
To check the security of your connection, look at the lower left- or right-hand corner of your browser window after accessing the server. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending on your browser), then SSL is active and the page you are accessing is being transmitted by SSL. You can also double-check by looking at the URL line of your browser. When accessing a secure page, the first characters of the site address will change from "http" to "https."
Some versions of browsers and some firewalls don't permit communication through secure servers. In that case, you won't be able to connect to the server and, therefore, won't be able to place an order through an insecure connection. If you cannot access the secure server for any reason, please call us TOLL-FREE at 1-800-687-6575 to place your order.
If you still feel more comfortable ordering over the phone, please call us TOLL-FREE at 1-800-687-6575. One of our Customer Support Representatives will be happy to help you.
Your Privacy Online
The DR® Power Equipment website is here as a service to our customers, and we're committed to making it private. As a rule, we do not collect any personal information about you when you visit our website, unless you provide it to us. If you place an online order or request a catalog, we do ask for information such as your name, mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address. If you do give us your postal or e-mail address, you may receive periodic mailings from us with information on sales events or new products. If you do not wish to receive such mailings, please contact us.
Occasionally, we may share your name and mailing address with companies we believe may be of interest to you. If you prefer not to receive mailings from other companies, please contact us.
To help us understand how people use our website and how we might improve it, we do track, in aggregate, how visitors access and use our site. So that we can better understand the strength of our marketing efforts, we also make a record of when people click through to our website from an advertisement, search engine listing, and other sites where we pay for representation.

Information We Collect Online and How it is Used
We gather information about visitors to our site for two reasons: to provide a product or service you have requested and to improve our website, so that we may better serve your needs. The only information we collect about you, personally, is the information you choose to provide. In several areas of our site, we ask you to provide information by filling out and submitting an online form. These areas include:
Catalog Requests: To send you one of our catalogs, we need your name and address. At this point, we may also ask a few questions, such as, "How did you hear about us?" Answering these questions is optional and we do not share the answers to these questions with anyone.
E-mail Mailing List: For subscriptions to our e-mail program, we need only your e-mail address. We do not sell, rent, or trade your e-mail address with anyone, for any reason.
Purchases: In order to process and deliver your purchases, we need your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, and credit card information.
In addition to the above, each time you visit our website we do collect information about how you accessed our site and the particular pages you viewed. The reason we gather this type of information is to better understand what customers want when they visit www.drpower.com. However, it's important to note that we do not analyze this information on an individual visitor level. Instead, we analyze the combined data from the thousands of visitors to our website. As we study the data we find that trends often appear that can help us improve our website. For instance, with this data we can learn which parts of our website are accessed most frequently, or which search engines visitors use to find our website.
Additionally, we have carefully selected affiliates to apply third-party advertising technology to serve ads when you visit our site and sites where we advertise. This advertising technology uses information about your visits to our site and the sites where we advertise (excluding your name, address or other personal information) to serve our ads to you. In the course of serving our advertisements to you, a unique cookie may be placed or recognized on your browser. In addition, these affiliates use "web beacons", which are small strings of code delivered by a transparent graphic image on a web page for purposes of transferring data, to help manage our online advertising. These web beacons enable our ad server to recognize a browser's cookie when a browser visits this site and to learn which banner ads bring users to our site. We have implemented the following Google Analytics Advertising Features: Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting and Google Analytics Remarketing. These features allow us to advertise based on demographic and interest data as gathered and determined by Google. To opt out of Google Advertising features please visit this link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/. The information we collect and share through this technology is not personally identifiable.
Any information we collect about our customers is stored in a secure database.
We may from time to time contract with third party vendors to serve ads to our customers on our behalf across the internet or to send our catalogs to customers whom we think may be interested in our products or services. To do this, the vendors will collect anonymous information about your visits to our Web site and your interaction with our products and services. This anonymous information is collected through the use of a cookie or pixel tag — industry standard technology used by most major Web sites. No personally identifiable information is collected in this process. They may also pool the anonymous information that they collect with other sources of information not collected during your visit to our website, which may include your name and mailing address, for purposes of determining whether you might be interested in receiving marketing literature.
If you do not wish for cookies or pixel tags to be placed on your computer, most commercially available web browsers permit you to prevent that from taking place. To opt-out of receiving our marketing materials, you may email us at email@example.com or call us at 1-800-687-6575
Information We Do Not Collect
When you visit our site, we do not collect your name, e-mail address or any other personal information unless you provide it to us, as described above.

How We Use E-mail
