Cookies

Mountianwestonline.com uses a feature of your Internet Web browser called a "cookie" to assign a unique identification to your computer. Cookies are files that your Web browser places on your computer's hard drive. Mountainwestonline.com creates and then uses these cookie files to track your clicks as you go through the site.

We only uses cookies to keep track of items you put into your shopping cart, to tell us whether you have visited Mountainwestonline.com previously, and to help us determine whether you came to Mountainwestonline.com from a particular Internet link or banner advertisement.

Cookies cannot be used by Mountainwestonline.com to retrieve any personal information about you unless you have previously purchased from or registered with Mountainwestonline.com. Mountainwestonline.com does not and cannot use cookies to retrieve personal information about you from your computer unless such information was knowingly and willingly provided by you.

Online Shopping Security

When you use your credit card to shop at Mountainwestonline.com, rest assured that the transaction has been encrypted and is secure. Our servers use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), an advanced encryption technology that works with Netscape Navigator (versions 2.0 and above), Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 3.0 and above), AOL (AOL 3.0 and above) and Firefox. This technology safeguards your personal information and privacy.

We use Authorize.net for credit card verification and fraud detection and Go Daddy (SSL) encryption to protect your personal information. If at any time you feel like your privacy has been breached and/or just have further questions about Mountainwest’ privacy policy, please call us immediately at 415.552.7055 or email us at sales@mountainwestonline.com.

Note: Our SSL certificate supports both industry-standard 128-bit and high-grade 256-bit encryption. The actual encryption strength on a secure connection using a digital certificate is determined by the level of encryption supported by the user's browser and the server that the Web site resides on. For example, the combination of a Firefox browser and an Apache Web server normally enables up to 256-bit AES encryption with our SSL certificates. This means that depending on the Web browser and Web server that combine to establish the secure connection through one of our SSL certificates, the encryption strength of the secure connection may be 40, 56, 128, or 256 bit.
