ONLINE PRIVACY – THE INFORMATION WE GATHER

WHERE DOES THIS INFORMATION GO ONCE IT IS SUBMITTED?
A SSL layer helps to protect the transfer of information. The transfer of information solely to Beneleaf can be guaranteed through THAaWte certificate technology. That’s not the only safeguard. We also make every effort to securely store and manage this information once it is received by Beneleaf. Any information we collect is securely stored on site. The data is secured through multiple digital security measures as well as structural security implements.
ONLINE ORDER INFORMATION
In order to effectively process and fulfill an order from one of Beneleaf’s websites, customers must provide us with the following information:

This information is recorded to make sure that each order is processed and delivered to the correct customer. Additional order information is recorded and tracked to help us analyze shopping trends. These customer trends help Beneleaf improve the products and services it offers to customers and members.
A valid email address is required to verify the receipt of an order. The verification email will contain your name, address, membership number at Beneleaf (if applicable), the list of purchased items, an order reference number, shipping method confirmation, and the total number of purchased items.
