What information is collected?
In order to provide you with high quality collectible coins on our website, we collect some personal information. For most transactions we request some basic information from you. For example, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number and credit card expiration date. We may use your e-mail address or telephone number to get in touch with you about an order you placed. Hence, we use that personal information to serve you better. We may, from time to time, send you email regarding our other products and services. At times we may send special offers to you in the mail.
The personal information delineated above is collected only when you order a product, subscribe to our newsletter, or participate in a promotional event. When you submit personal information to us it is encrypted to ensure confidentiality. All personal information is then maintained on a secure database. Although we must share some of this information with our business partners for credit card authorization, order processing, shipping and e-mail distribution we limit the information they receive and work closely with them to make sure that your information is safe.
In addition to personal information americanhistoricsociety.com collects some routine data about those who visit so the website can work optimally. For example, when you visit americanhistoricsociety.com our servers automatically recognize your IP address, as well as what sites you are coming to us from. Not only does this help us diagnose potential problems with our server, but we are able to use this piece of information to help us identify you and your shopping cart.
When someone registers on our site and provides an e-mail address we assign a code to that e-mail address and send a cookie to that person’s PC. This makes our site more user-friendly.
In harmony with our efforts to provide excellent service, we will occasionally share our customer list with select partners who are able to provide specific services or additional products to our customers. When we transmit personal information, it is securely encrypted and protected by SSL encryption software. If you would prefer not receive any of these offers, please e-mail us at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=Opt-Out .
Our goal is to provide historical treasures in American coinage. Our site is only intended for those 18 or over. We will never knowingly collect personal information about anyone under 18 years of age.
