At RC Hobby Estore, we understand and share your concern about privacy. We do everything in our power to ensure that any information you share with us remains confidential. We will not solicit your information.
However, we do collect certain types of information for internal use. These include, but are not limited to, information on items browsed and pages visited, IP addresses, and cookie information. We store and analyze this information to ensure that our sites continue to offer products and services with you in mind.
In addition to gathering demographic information, we use your Internet Protocol (IP) address to help identify you and your shopping cart. When you place an order with us, we collect information such as your name, address, telephone number, email address and credit card information. In the process of filling your order, when required, we do share this information with certain outside parties such as carriers, distribution centers and product manufacturers.
The personal information that RC Hobby Estore retains is strictly used to confirm and process your order and to be in contact with you should the need arise. During the ordering process, you will be sent three emails to: confirm your order, confirm that the method of payment has been approved and give you a tracking number once the order has been shipped.
Throughout our sites, you will find the "Email A Friend" feature that allows you to share product details or "Best Seller" information with your friends. Email addresses provided through the use of this feature are used strictly to direct email communication, and are not retained in our database. They are never used for any other purpose other than the original intention.
