Privacy Policy

Your information, whether public or private, will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any other company for any reason whatsoever, without your consent, other than for the express purpose of delivering the purchased product or service requested.

The email address you provide for order processing will only be used to send you information and updates pertaining to your order. You must decide to opt-in to our mailing list in order to receive emails that may include company news, updates, related product or service information, etc. In most cases, CDG does not normally send out emails to our customers without a legitimate reason. For example, if a specific product announcement is necessary we will send out a mass email to notify our customers.

Note: If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we include detailed unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.

How do we protect your information?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or when accessing your personal information.

We use a secure server and all supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. Our OMS is on a secured server and protected by a Military/Government Grade Firewall system with checks and balances in play. However, as we have all seen, nothing is ever beyond “hackable” if it is connected to the outside world and security is always relative to the level of dedication to security. We are dedicated beyond the minimum standards.

Our ecommerce software complies with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard. PCI is an agreed upon standard by all of the major credit card companies.

Our payment gateway is Authorize.Net – in their own words: “Since 1996, Authorize.Net has been a leading provider of payment gateway services, managing the submission of billions of transactions to the processing networks on behalf of merchant customers. Authorize.Net is a solution of CyberSource Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Visa (NYSE: V).

CyberSource is committed to privacy and security. CyberSource is compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (“PCI DSS”) as a Level 1 service provider. CyberSource has been compliant with PCI DSS since its inception in 2002. PCI DSS is the bankcard industry’s most stringent security standard. Examples of CyberSource’s security measures include: physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards; sophisticated security monitoring tools; documented security policies; use of strong encryption for transmissions of Order Information to and from CyberSource Customers; restricted access of personally identifiable information; and, periodic security audits by third party security experts.”

Warranties and Liability
