information you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions
when using our site.
In Summary, we use the information we collect on our site to make shopping at
our company possible and to enhance your overall browsing and shopping
experience. We do not sell, trade, rent, or in anyway share the
information we collect to others outside our company system - period!
The information we collect:
When you visit The Bronze Plaque you may provide us with two types of
information: personal information you choose to disclose in our forms and
technical information collected as you browse our web site.
1 - We collect personal information you choose to provide - On some
pages, you can make requests for information or order products. We collect the
data on that form.
2 - Email Information - If you choose to correspond with us through
email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your
email address and our responses.
3 - Technical Information -Most commercial web sites such as ours
utilizes a standard technology called "cookies" (see explanation below, "What
Are Cookies?") and Web server logs to collect technical information about how
our web site is used. Information gathered through cookies and Web server logs
may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our
Web site, and the Web sites visited just before and just after our web site -
BUT NOT WHO. No personal information is collected and this 'technical'
information is NOT correlated with any personally identifiable information
provided elsewhere (such as forms).
How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us:
We use the personal information you provide when requesting information, for
purposes of providing responses and follow up email messages to your requests
for information. Occasionally (up to 2 times a year), we may also use the
information we collect to notify you about important changes to our web site,
new services and special offers we think you will find valuable. You may notify
us at any time if you do not wish to receive these emails by responding to our
email with the subject line REMOVE.
We use the information you provide about yourself when placing an order only to
complete that order. We do not share this information with outside parties
except to the extent necessary to complete that order (such as shipping). We
use the information you provide about someone else when placing an order (such
as sending a gift) only to ship the product and to confirm delivery.
Our Commitment To Data Security:
We require you to log on to our web based computer system in order to keep your
information private. On our shopping site, credit card information
is encrypted to prevent theft and it is deleted after 14 days.
Cookies and Java Script - the technical low down.
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique
identifier. When you visit a Web site, that site's computer asks your computer
for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically
designated for cookies. Each Web site can send its own cookie to your browser
if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your
browser only permits a Web site to access the cookies it has already sent to
you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
1 - What About "Cookies"? "Cookies" are small pieces of information
that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. Our cookies do
not contain any personally identifying information, but they do enable us to
provide automated features. If you do not allow cookies, you will not
obtain the benefits of many areas on our web site and many portions, such as
shopping functions, will not work at all.
2 - How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies? As you shop
on our Web site, the site uses its cookies to differentiate you from other
shoppers so your shopping cart and other information is only available to
you. Cookies, in conjunction with our Web server's log files, allow us to
calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our Web site and which parts
of the site are most popular. This helps us gather feedback in order to
constantly improve our Web site and better serve our customers. Cookies do
not allow us to gather any personal information about you.
