Web Security Policy
First of all we want to assure you that your payment and personal information used during your session with Talavera Emporium is always safe.
Our secure sockets layer software is the industry standard and among the best software available today for secure commercial transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address, so that cannot be read over the internet by any unauthorized party.
For security purposes and to make sure our website remains available to all users, we use special software programs for monitoring network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise to cause damage to this government computer system. These programs collect no information that would directly identify individuals, but they do collect information that could help us identify someone attempting to tamper with this website.
If you use our website, you should understand that all activities may be monitored and recorded. Anyone using this system expressly consents to such monitoring.
On those pages where Talavera Emporium uses "cookies" to facilitate your use of our site, we do not collect personal information about you and the cookie is destroyed when you exit your browser. There is no information stored on your computer and no unauthorized files are written onto your disk drives. These cookies are called "session cookies." They help you use our website interactively and are destroyed when you close your browser.
These "session cookies" do not collect information about you, but only about your browser "session." The cookie makes it easier for you to use the dynamic features of these web pages, without having to provide the same information as you move from one page to another. You will find the use of these "session cookies" on several of our data access tools.
If you decide to send us an e-mail message, the message will usually contain your return e-mail address. If you include personally-identifying information in your e-mail because you want us to address issues specific to your situation, we may use that information in responding to your request, but it will be destroyed when we complete our return correspondence. Also, e-mail is not totally secure against interception. Please send only information necessary to help us process your request.
On some of our web pages we provide forms that let you voluntarily submit personal information (such as e-mail address or name). For example, this occurs when you are registering for various conferences or training sessions or when you sign up for our "Newsflash" subscription service. In those cases, all submitted information is used only for the expressed purposes for which it is intended and is not made available to any third party.
