General Information About Our Site and the Internet
Our Site uses Internet (or "Web" or "Website") technologies to gather navigational information about our Site and its technical efficiencies and services, such as time to connect to our Site and download pages. This information allows us to see which areas of our Site are most visited and helps improve our understanding of our customers' Site experiences. This practice also helps us improve the quality of online shopping experiences by recognizing and delivering more of the features, services and products our visitors prefer. In the process of gathering navigational information, non-personally identifiable information may be collected, such as domain type, Web browser version, service provider, and IP address, which will provide information about a visitor's use of our Site, like the time of a visitor's last visit to a Site page.
You may choose to set your Web browser to not accept cookies. If your cookies are disabled, you can still view our site and make a purchase.
We may carefully select third-party advertising companies to collect information by using cookies when you visit our Site. These select companies help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising and how visitors use our Site. We respect your right to choose whether to be included in the services that these third parties provide.
Our Site server may automatically collect the address of the Website that you came from before visiting our Site, which Web browser you used to view our Site, and any search terms you have entered on our Site. Our Site may also use other technologies to track pages of our Site viewed by visitors, commonly referred to as "tracer tags".

We encourage you to read the privacy policies of those other sites and third parties to learn how they collect and use information about you.

When online shopping, if you use a credit/debit card for your purchases, we will collect your credit/debit card information in order to process your purchases and may use your information to keep a history of your purchases. When you return previously purchased merchandise or request a refund or exchange, we may ask for your name, physical address, phone number, and a form of identification, such as your driver's license. We collect this information to help prevent fraud. When visiting our Site, if you register for an online account or for any online offers or services, we may ask you to provide personal information and to select a password of your own choice to help keep personal information secure.

Cookies & Clickstream data
A “cookie” is a small piece of information that is sent by a website to your web browser, where it becomes stored for later retrieval; usually it is a text file which is placed in the browser directory of your computer's hard drive. The cookie cannot be read by any website other than the one that set up the cookie. Most web browsers will accept cookies by default, but they can be set to reject cookies, either from all websites or from specific sites. You can also manually delete cookies from your web browser. These options are generally set through a "privacy" setting in your browser setup.
You can learn more about cookies by visiting www.allaboutcookies.org
When you visit our website, our server collects some anonymous information, known as click-stream data, including the type of browser and computer system or device you are using, the addresses of the websites you come from and move to after your visit, the date and time of your visit, and your server’s IP address. We may collect this information for statistical purposes to find out how our website is used and navigated, including the number of hits, the frequency and duration of visits, and most popular session times. We may use this information to evaluate and improve our website performance.
Security of Personal Information
The importance of protecting your privacy is paramount. We promise to do everything in our power to ensure you shop with us with confidence.
We take all reasonable steps to maintain the security and integrity of your personal information and to protect your personal information from misuse, interference and loss and unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
Lamparto strives to maintain internal controls and procedures to ensure that the personal information you share with us is handled in a safe, secure and responsible manner. If you are shopping online, we have security measures in place to help protect against loss, unauthorised access, and alteration of the information in our control. We will only disclose such information to employees and authorised service providers who require such information for the purposes described in this Policy.
Lamparto's databases are protected by physical, technical, and procedural measures that restrict information access to authorised persons in accordance with this Policy. Although no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed 100% secure, and we cannot ensure against any loss, misuse, unauthorised disclosure, alteration, or destruction of data, we take reasonable precautions to prevent such unfortunate occurrences. Our information systems are maintained behind a firewall to isolate them from access by other networks connected to the Internet, and access to personally-identifiable information is granted only to associates who need the information to perform a specific job.
It is our intent to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you. To ensure protection of your credit card number and other personal information, Lamparto uses encryption technology. Your credit card number is digitally scrambled to ensure that it is not read by unauthorised third parties. If you're still concerned about internet security, please contact our customer service department to submit your order by telephone or fax
Secure Online Shopping
Our Safe Shopping Guarantee protects you while you shop so you never have to worry about credit card safety. We have taken numerous steps to ensure your payment information is processed confidentially, accurately, and securely. We guarantee that every transaction you make will be 100% safe. This means that you pay nothing if unauthorised charges are made to your card as a result of shopping with us. We understand that trust, safety and security are at the heart of a good online shopping experience. That is why when you purchase from Lamparto the details of your transactions are passed through a secure server that uses a very strong level of encryption. To support the required level of encryption, we encourage you to ensure your own browser and security software is always up to date. We use 128-bit SSL encryption when sending or receiving your private information over the internet. What this means is that your information is scrambled in a way that only the sender and receiver can understand. Our On-line Ordering system is the industry standard for encryption technology – to protect your online order information. SSL encrypts all information including your credit card and all personal information passed from you to our checkout. Encryption provides you with security and peace of mind when your browser and local network supports the use of encrypted data transmissions. Your privacy and security is incredibly important to us and we will continue to ensure that we have the very best and most up to date technology available to ensure that we can do business in a safe and secure manner. However, we suggest that you take appropriate security precautions when you access the internet via public WI-FI networks or shared computers.
Our Site uses encryption technology, such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), to protect your credit card information during data transport. SSL encrypts ordering information such as your name, physical address, and credit card number. When purchasing a Product, your financial details are passed through a secure server using the latest 128-bit SSL (secure sockets layer) encryption technology. It is estimated that it would take at least one trillion years to decrypt 128-bit SSL encryption, and this level of encryption is the current industry standard. If you have any questions regarding our security policy, please contact our customer team at firstname.lastname@example.org
To provide you with an increased level of security online, when you register for an online account, you may also select a password to access your personal information. Lamparto will not ask you for your password in an unsolicited communication.
The safety of children is very important to us. Consequently, Lamparto does not knowingly or intentionally collect information from persons under 13 years of age without parental consent. If you are under 13 and wish to purchase items from our Site or wish to provide personal information, ask a parent or guardian for assistance. Lamparto cannot prohibit minors from visiting our Site and must rely on parents and guardians to decide which materials are appropriate for children under 13.
