Will my information be shared?
YPCK does not sell, rent or trade our customer’s name, address, telephone number, etc. However, from time to time we may offer a customer’s email address to a very limited number of carefully screened third parties that may send you promotional emails. If you do not wish for us to share this information with these companies, you can add your name to our “Do Not Share” list by sending us an email at [email protected] or calling 800-406-2860. If you send an email, please be sure to provide your name and mailing address in the message. All other personal information will only be used to provide services like fulfilling orders, and processing payments.
What are cookies and how does YPCK use them?
The YPCK website uses a browser feature known as a cookie. A cookie is a small text file created by a website that is stored by your browser on your hard drive. YPCK does not save any password or credit card information in cookies. YPCK does place a unique identifier in the cookie which allows us to connect your computer with the information we store in our secure database. This allows us to provide services such as a more personalized experience on our website, remembering items placed in your shopping, and auto-filling forms during checkout.
How do I review or update my information?
If you are a registered user online you may access your information visiting our website and logging into your customer account. You may make changes to your personal information on this page.
You can also contact customer service to access or make changes to your information by calling 800-406-2860 or sending an email to [email protected].
How do I remove my information?
If you only wish to unsubscribe from emails you can click on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email. You may also contact customer service by calling 800-460-2860 or sending an email to [email protected]. If you send an email to customer service, please be sure to include your name, address, and/or email address as it appears on the email or mailing you received from YPCK and indicate which list(s) you would like to be removed from (email and/or mailing).
We maintain a “Do Not Mail” file to ensure we honor your “opt out” requests. Please note that, since mailings are planned in advance, it may take up to twelve weeks for your mailing “opt out” to become effective. If you make purchases from our website you will still receive order and shipping confirmation emails. In addition customer service may contact you by phone, email, or mail with questions related to your order.
How does YPCK ensure my information is secure?
The security of your personal information is very important to us, and we have implemented measures to ensure your information is processed confidentially, accurately, and securely. Our website uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt your order information, such as your name, address, and credit card number, during data transmission. Once you begin the checkout process you will be in secure mode and should see either a solid key icon or a locked padlock icon at the bottom of your Internet browser window. In addition, the beginning of the YPCK URL address at the top of your browser should change from “http” to “https”; the “s” standing for secure.
Our customer service center and stores also operate over a private, secure network.
How does YPCK protect children’s privacy?
We are concerned about the safety and security of children. In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If we become aware that an individual is under the age of 13, and has submitted any information to YPCK for any purpose without prior verifiable parental consent, we will delete his or her information from our files.
