Site Privacy Policy

Privacy Statement

This document was last updated Thursday, October 20, 2009.


At, we are committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most enjoyable and secure online experience possible. This Statement discloses the information practices for CartIt Web sites, including what type of information is gathered and tracked, how the information is used and with whom the information is shared.

This document applies to all Web sites, including but not limited to and If is the top level domain name, then this policy applies.


In general, you can visit CartIt Shopping Cart on the Web without telling us who you are and without revealing any information about yourself. There are times,however, when we may need information from you.

You may choose to give us personal information such as your name, address and e-mail for membership level access to restricted documents that are not available to the public. In some cases, your credit card number may be required to order products. It is our intent to let you know how we will use such information before we collect it from you on the Internet.

Credit Cards

As most Internet companies do, we use an outside credit card processing company to bill users for goods. These credit card processing companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes to our knowledge; at this time we use "PayPal" for this processing.


This Web site takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the Web site, the information is protected both online and offline.

When our registration or order form asks you to enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number), that information is protected with SSL encryption software.

While on a secure page such as our order form, the lock icon at the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked or open when you are just browsing.

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information offline. 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 (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable credit card information. Even in these cases, credit card information is rarely seen since the process is automated by Secure SSL connection between the CartIt Shopping Cart Web site and PayPal. The only instance the credit card number may actually seen by humans is in the case of an order problem, such as an order flagged by our fraud protection system or an order that has been declined.

Credit Card Warehousing

CartIt has taken a strict stand against credit card warehousing, the practice of storing credit card numbers on Internet servers. In fact, our software "CartIt" was specifically written with this in mind, storing the credit card number on the server only during the order process; upon that order being approved and fulfilled, the credit card number is extracted from the World Wide Web server database, encrypted, then stored behind a firewall on a NON-public network for record keeping purposes.

If you have any questions about the security at our Web site, you can send an e-mail to "security" at the domain
