Scale Model Supplies is the sole owner of any information
collected on the Web site: www.scalemodelsupplies.com. We may
collect information from our users at one or more points on our
Contact Us Page
We request information from the user on our
Contact Us page. A user must provide contact information (such
as name and email, etc.) if requesting information or assistance.
This information is used to contact the user, by email or telephone.
We may opt to store information that we collect through
our Contact Us page (and any future online ordering pages) to create
a profile of our users. (A profile is stored information that we
keep on individual users that details their viewing preferences
and product purchases.) Consequently, collected information is
tied to the users personally identifiable information to provide
possible offers and improve the content of the site for the user.
This profile is used to tailor a user’s
visit to our Web site, and to possibly direct pertinent marketing
promotions to them. We do not share your profile with other
third parties unless required to do so by law.
Like most standard Web site servers, ours uses log files. This
includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet
service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type,
date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer
the site, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather
broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses,
etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Special Offers and Updates
Established customers may occasionally receive information on
products, services, special offers, and/or newsletters. Out of
respect for the privacy of our users, we present the option to
not receive these types of communications. Please see the Choice/Opt-out
We may communicate with users on a regular basis to provide requested
services, and in regard to issues relating to their account,
we reply via email or phone, in accordance with the user's wishes.
Although we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may
need to disclose personal information 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.
Third Party Intermediaries
In the future, we may use an outside shipping company to ship orders,
and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods
and services. Those companies do not retain, share, store or
use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
In the event Scale Model Supplies goes through a business transition,
such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling
a portion of its assets, users’ personal information will,
in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.
Our users are given the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ of
having their information used for purposes not directly related
to our site at the point where we ask for information.
Users who no longer wish to receive promotional
communications may opt-out of receiving these communications by
replying to any email communication with "Unsubscribe" in
the subject line, or by emailing
This Web site may contain links to other sites. Please be aware
that we, Scale Model Supplies, are not responsible for the privacy
practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware
of when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements
of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable
information. This privacy statement applies solely to information
collected by this Web site.
If and when Scale Model Supplies makes online purchases possible,
a user's personal financial information may be requested via secure
forms. Currently, ALL information requested on our web site is
transmitted to us via unsecured
email. These email
transmissions are not encrypted for security. Because of this,
users should never offer
unsolicited financial information (such as credit card number or
social security number) in our Contact Us form.
Until we offer online purchses, users will only be asked
for personal financial information via telephone when ordering
This Web site takes every precaution possible to protect our users’ information
offline. All of our users’ information is restricted in our
offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific
job (for example, a customer service employee) are granted
access to personally identifiable information.
If users have any questions about the security at our Web site,
users can send us an email.
Correcting/Updating/Deleting/Deactivating Personal Information
If a user’s personally identifiable information changes (such
as zip code, phone, email or postal address), or if a user no longer
desires our services, we provide a way to correct, update or delete/deactivate
users’ personally identifiable information. This can usually
be done by emailing us.
Or, contact us by telephone or postal mail at the contact information
Notification of Changes
to this privacy statement, the homepage, and other places we
deem appropriate so our users are always aware of what information
we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any,
we disclose it.
If, however, we are going to use users’ personally identifiable
information in a manner different from that stated at the time
of collection we will notify users via email and by posting a notice
on our Web site for 30 days.
