Website Privacy Policy

Bedford Rugs is committed to respecting the privacy rights of our customers and all visitors to our web site. We take this matter very seriously, and have instituted many policies and procedures to insure that none of your privacy rights as stated herein are ever violated. The following outlines Bedford Rugs 's privacy policy and details the measures we have taken to safeguard and protect your privacy, while providing you with a unique and rewarding online shopping experience. By visiting Bedford Rugs, you are agreeing to the policies detailed below.

  1. Starting Your Order Every order you place with us is secure. All data submitted via the checkout form is encrypted using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption.
  2. Making a Positive ID After you've selected items to purchase, you'll be prompted to "proceed to checkout." At this point, your browser looks for a site certificate to confirm that it is communicating with our store. Once a positive ID is made, your order continues.
  3. Entering Secure Mode At this point, your computer and our server begin communicating in secure mode, sending data back and forth in an encrypted format. We are ready to ask you for your credit card information. The encryption features of browser software are exceptionally powerful and ensure the security of this data as it is transmitted to our server.
  4. Your Order Is Complete Next, your credit card numbers are placed in a database on the secure web server. A user must have login privileges on the web server (requiring a password) to be able to access the database, which also requires a password.

Order information, including the credit card numbers, is retrieved through a web interface. This interface challenges the user for a password twice, and then "expires" the session after ten minutes, requiring the user to login again. All communications during these sessions are encrypted again using SSL. No credit card numbers are ever sent via e-mail, due to the fact that most e-mail is not secure.

We take all the rug precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever we collecting sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way.
