Privacy and Security

Thank you for reviewing our policies regarding any personal information you may choose to provide through the Cyclesmith website. We take your privacy seriously and carefully protect any and all information entrusted to us. We only collect information that helps us serve you better and that you voluntarily provide. We do not share your information with anyone else unless you've approved of such sharing in advance.

What Information We Collect

The following types of information may be collected at this website  (if you volunteer it):

  • your e-mail address
  • your first and last name
  • your street address, city, province, and Postal Code
  • pertinent information specific to an event or activity (where relevant)

More About E-Mail & Postal Addresses

If you supply us with your e-mail and/or postal addresses, and do not specify otherwise, you may receive periodic messages from us with information on new products, services or upcoming events.

If, later, you decide you no longer wish to receive such messages, you may let us know by sending an e-mail, calling or writing us. To ensure we correctly identify you (many names are similar), please be sure to include your complete name and address and all e-mail addresses that may be associated with your record. This helps us accurately locate your information in our file. Such information will only be used to comply with your request.

If you would like to see your contact information we have on file, please stop in or let us know to what address you'd like us to send a copy.

Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Encryption

Whenever you submit confidential information online to Cyclesmith, we process it with Secure Socket Layer or SSL Encryption. This is the internet standard for protecting sensitive information that is sent back and forth on the internet, just like online banking.

Cyclesmith uses a secure shopping environment using SSL encryption from VeriSign, one of the largest and most trusted names in website security. The form is sent to our domain. Notice the https instead of the usual http. The 's' means the page is secure or encrypted.

Many web browsers will also show some sort of lock box at the bottom of the window indicating that the page is encrypted.

Look for the https or the lock box icon to see if a page is secure, so that you can feel safe entering credit card information on our site.

Periodic Updates

Please check this page for periodic updates on our policies regarding any personal information you've provided to us via our website. Thank you for visiting Cyclesmith online. We appreciate the opportunity to serve you.
