PRIVACY & SECURITY
COLLECTION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
WHAT INFORMATION DO YOU COLLECT?
The information that you give us and information about your order may be combined with other personally identifiable information (such as demographic information and past purchase history) available from our records and other sources. This information will be used to make our future marketing efforts more efficient. This information may also be shared with other marketers to bring you offers of interest. If you prefer that we do not share your name and address with other marketers, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHERE DO YOU COLLECT THE INFORMATION?
There are three areas on our site where we collect the personal information:
- Shopping Cart
- The Check Out page
- Email Promotion List
WHAT DO YOU DO WITH THE INFORMATION?
Once we have collected the above information, it is used to process orders, to communicate with you about your order, and to provide future notification to you of special offers or promotions. We also use it to improve our website. We may provide statistical information about buying patterns and traffic patterns to others, but this data does not include any personal information.
HOW AND WHY DO YOU USE "COOKIES"?
"Cookies" are a type of information that is stored on your hard drive via your web browser. The "cookies" that Localbeach.com uses do not contain any personal data such as credit card information, passwords, or even your name or address. Cookies simply help us to identify your session on the site. They also help us maintain specific visit information about you without forcing you to register or to give personal information.
However, you should have the option of disabling "cookies" through your browser. This is a function of your computer, so the manner in which to turn the "cookies" off is quite individual and thus, cannot be addressed here. Please realize, if you choose to disable the "cookies" we will not be able to personalize your experience with us at localbeach.com nor can we guarantee a complete login, registration or shopping experience.
The Site is not intended for individuals under the age of 18. We do not intentionally collect Personal Information from children. If you are the parent or guardian and believe your child has provided us with Personal Information, please contact us at the address below to request deletion.

RECEIVING EMAIL & TEXT MESSAGE PROMOTIONS AND INFORMATION FROM LOCALBEACH.COM

SECURE CREDIT CARD TRANSACTION PROCESSING
Our web site uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption to transmit your credit card information from a secure web page to a secure application on our server. Once on our server, your credit card number is saved only long enough for us to process and approve the transaction. During the final stages of ordering online, you will see an unbroken key or locked padlock at the bottom of your browser window and https:// in the location window at the top of your browser. Both of these indicate that the page you are on is secured using SSL encryption to communicate with our secure web server. Because SSL encryption slows down a web site, it is only used in the final stage of ordering, before and after you enter your credit card information. You will not see these security indicators until you begin the checkout process and indicate that you prefer to order online with a credit card.
localbeach.com does not and will not disclose any personal information such as name, street address, email address, and purchase history to any third parties. We take personal privacy very seriously. Our website is also a GeoTrust Secured site meaning our orders are processed online using industry standard SSL encryption provided by the most trusted name in online security.
If you are a resident of California, you have the right to access the Personal Information we hold about you (also known as the ‘Right to Know’), to port it to a new service, and to ask that your Personal Information be corrected, updated, or erased. If you would like to exercise these rights, please contact us through the contact information below.

Session cookies last until you stop browsing and persistent cookies last until they expire or are deleted. Most of the cookies we use are persistent and will expire between 30 minutes and two years from the date they are downloaded to your device.
