|Privacy / Security Information
We strongly believe in protecting your privacy. We only use the information we collect about you to process your order - and nothing else.
When you place an order, we need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number and expiration date. This allows
us to process and fulfill your orders and to notify you of your order status.
Additionally, we will never sell, trade or rent your personal information to others - we are totally committed to protecting your privacy.
Safe And Secure Shopping
When you shop at Bird Central, you never have to worry about credit card safety. We guarantee that every transaction you make will be safe.
We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), an encryption technology that works with Netscape, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and AOL browsers, so that
only Bird Central can read a buyer's personal information.
Online purchases are statistically safer than using your credit card at a restaurant or department store. Technical experts state that online
purchases are far safer than traditional credit card transactions because the information is immediately encrypted into a scrambled message
that can only be decrypted by an authorized computer.
Under the Fair Credit Billing Act, your bank cannot hold you liable for more than $50.00 of fraudulent charges. If your bank does hold you
liable for any of this $50.00, we will cover the entire liability for you, up to the full $50.00. We will only cover this liability if the
unauthorized use of your credit card resulted through no fault of your own from purchases made at Bird Central while using the secure server.
In the event of unauthorized use of your credit card, you must notify your credit card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures.
