This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.

5. STORAGE AND SECURITY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

Your personal information is stored and processed on computers and servers in the United States and, through your use of the Website, you unequivocally consent to the processing and storage of your personal information.

Pike Arms transmits information via the highest industry standard secure server (SSL) processes.

When you see the https:// website address, you know the information you are in-putting is protected and secure using the green extended validation certificate.

We have implemented and maintain generally accepted industry standards to protect against the unauthorized access, use, modification, destruction or disclosure of your personal information both during transmission and once we receive it. The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information during the registration process, we encrypt that information using state-of-the-art technology. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure.

Pike Arms assures you that we will use your personal information only for the purposes stated in the Terms of Use Agreement and this Privacy Policy. We will not otherwise rent or sell your personal information to unaffiliated third parties, and we will prevent your email address from being recorded by web crawlers or web spiders to the best of our ability.
