All customer data that is collected is stored off-line and is completely protected against unauthorized access.

Electronic Payments Security
Paypal is used by this site for electronic payments and is a popular, very secure method of payment. When you place orders using the Paypal functions, a secure server and secure server software (SSL)-based encryption is utilized for all information you input. When you sign up for a Paypal account or use an existing account, Paypal stores your credit card information and bank information (if you have provided it to them). Metallium, Inc. never sees your credit card or bank information, for security reasons and because there is no need for Metallium, Inc. to see that information. An exception to this is when a customer places an order by submitting credit card information over the telephone. Once Metallium, Inc. processes the credit card number, all records of the credit card information made at Metallium, Inc are destroyed.
Metallium, Inc. may periodically notify you by email about important changes to the Web site, new products and services, and special offers that may be of interest to you. If you would rather not receive this information, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate your desire to not receive this information. All requests will be dutifully honored.
