Rock/Creek has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy. Rock/Creek will not sell, trade, or lease your personal information to third parties. Ever. The following information discloses our information-gathering and dissemination practices for rockcreek.com:
- Our site uses an order form for visitors to purchase products and request information and services. We collect users' contact information including but not limited to addresses, emails, phone numbers and financial information (such as credit card numbers). Contact information from the order form is used to send orders, information about our company, and occasional promotional materials from our partners to our users. When partners receive customer contact information, partners are informed of the confidential nature of the information and are limited to use of the information only for the purposes of planned promotions with Rock/Creek. The user's contact information is also used to contact customers directly when necessary (for instance with questions about their orders). Some of the products represented on our site ship directly from the product manufacturer to the customer. In such a case we provide the customer's shipping information to the manufacturer for order fulfillment purposes only. Financial information that is collected is used to bill the customer for products and services.
- Rock/Creek runs contests on our site in which we ask visitors for contact information (typically an email address). We use this contact information to notify contest winners, and to send promotional materials from rockcreek.com and at times some of our partners. Customers who receive our emails may opt-out of receiving future emails at any time by clicking the "unsubscribe" link within each email.
