Privacy Statement for US Appliance® (last updated 03/07/2011)
We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site. We do not link IP address/ log files to personally identifiable information.
US Appliance, through its Web site www.us-appliance.com, collects your personal order information for processing your payments and arranging your appliance delivery. Your credit card information is shared back with the credit card company for making payment. Of course, we also then provide your address and contact information to our shipping companies in order for them to make the delivery. US Appliance maintains these privacy standards. The Web site is hosted by Yahoo, which does not own or use personal information you provide when placing orders. The order information you enter is collected by Yahoo and then transmitted back to US Appliance.
Our site uses an order form for customers to purchase products. We collect visitor’s contact information (like their email address, phone number and address) and financial information (like their credit card number). Contact information from the order form is used to send orders to our customers. Financial information that is collected is used to bill the user for products and services.
Your information will be used to contact you regarding your order, payment and delivery. We may occasionally send you information on products, special deals and promotions. You can sign up for these emails from us any time. Out of respect for your privacy, we present the option not to receive these types of communications. We will not sell your information to anyone. We use MyBuys to email product recommendations to consumers that subscribe on our site. When you sign up to receive special offers from US Appliance, we will share your email address as necessary for MyBuys to provide that service. To unsubscribe, follow the unsubscribe link that appears at the end of each email. MyBuys is prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose.

Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Web site, to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request. If US Appliance is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Web site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.
The ordering information you provide - including credit card information - is secured using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology via Yahoo! servers. Yahoo! uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption when transmitting certain kinds of information, such as financial services information or payment information. An icon resembling a padlock is displayed on the bottom of most browsers window during SSL transactions that involve credit cards and other forms of payment. Any time a Yahoo! asks for a credit card number during checkout for payment, it will be SSL encrypted. The information you provide will be stored securely on Yahoo!’s servers. This SSL technology is used to prevent such information from being intercepted and read as it is transmitted over the Internet. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is, 100% secure, however. Therefore we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend’s name and email address.

US Appliance does not store this information and it is for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program.
