Our goal is to meet your mailing needs. We collect personal information from you only that you choose to give to us. Personal information includes contact information such as your name, billing address, and email address; order processing information such as shipping and billing information; and financial and credit information. Your information is collected either by us, or by a third party, such as a dealer or a credit institution, who is under a confidentiality agreement with us.
Our site may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. For session cookies, once you close your browser(s), the cookies simply terminate. A persistent cookie is a small text file stored on your hard drive for a certain period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following Internet browser help file directions. If you reject cookies, you may still use our site.
Like most websites, we use log files. Log files are used to store such information as internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, and date/time stamp data. The Log files also contain aggregate information related to web traffic on our site, so that we can analyze trends and administer the site. However, log file information is not linked to your personal information.
Information Use and Customer Choice
We use your information to fulfill your order, including services related to order processing, billing, and shipping. The information collected on behalf of the USPS is used to provide postage meter licensing, meter resetting, and postage payment, or as directed by the USPS. Lastly, the information is used to correspond with you, including to respond to your inquiries, and to communicate with you from time to time about your order, products you have purchased, as well as on such topics as changes to postal regulations.
We would also like to send you announcements about other products of FP’s or our partners that you may find of interest and we understand that you might prefer not to receive such announcements. To opt-out of these announcements, simply send an email requesting to be removed from our mailing lists. Please be sure to include some type of identifying information, such as A-1 Postage Meters account number, so that we can ensure that we do not send you this type of communication. We will not send you advertising Emails unless you have chosen to receive such Emails.
We only share your information with third parties based on your request or consent; as needed to fulfill your order (these third parties are controlled by confidentiality agreement); or as needed or required by law. We may also transfer your information if A-1 Postage Meters is acquired or merged with another company.
A-1 Postage Meters takes every precaution to protect personal information you entrust to us, both online and offline.
Personal information you provide on our online registration/order form is protected using industry-standard encryption software – SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, you will know that SSL is in use when the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked.
While we use SSL encryption to protect personal information online, we also go to great lengths to protect personal information offline. All of our customers’ personal information is protected in our corporate offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personal information. Employees can only enter our facility with electronic access cards, and log into the network with an individual password. Servers that store personal information are in a secure environment, behind a second-level security door accessible only to personnel with a specific need to access that area. All employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy policies.
