A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about him or her. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user need not log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, he or she may still use our site. The only drawback is that access for such a user will be limited in some areas of our site.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user visits to our site, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that Tricare Medical Supplies, Inc. is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage those leaving our site to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website. Links to other websites are provided as a convenience. By clicking on them, you will be leaving Tricare Medical Supplies, Inc's website. Tricare Medical Supplies, Inc does not approve or control these sites and does not guarantee the accuracy of their information.
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for such contact information as e-mail address, cell phone numbers etc.
If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask for that friend's email address. Tricare Medical Supplies, Inc will automatically send the friend a one-time e-mail inviting him or her to visit the site. Tricare Medical Supplies, Inc stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email.
Tricare Medical Supplies, Inc takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, their information is protected both online and off-line. When our registration form asks a user to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number or Social Security number), that information is protected with SSL, the best encryption software in the industry. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon at the bottom of web browsers such as Mozilla Firefox and or on the address bar of browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, when just surfing. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information off-line. All of our users' information—not just the sensitive information mentioned above—is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. If you have any questions about the security at our website, you may use our online form to contact the webmaster.
Established members will occasionally receive information about products, services, special deals, or our newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users, we present the option to not receive such communications. Please see our Choice/Opt-out section below.
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 we ask for the information. For example, our donation form has an optout mechanism so users who contribute to us, but don't want to receive marketing material, can keep their e-mail address off our lists. Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter may opt-out of receiving these communications by accessing their subscription management page or by selecting the unsubscribe or remove options printed at the bottom of each newsletter.
