- PROTECTION OF YOUR INFORMATION
Pharmagel implements a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or enter, submit, or access your personal information.
We offer the use of a secure server. All payment information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway provider’s database, to be accessible only by authorized persons who are required to keep the information confidential. After a transaction, your financial information (credit cards, social security numbers, bank information, etc.) will not be stored on our servers.
We strive to maintain reasonable administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed to protect the information collected by us. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not 100 percent secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its security; any transmission is at your own risk.
If you use a computer or device that can be accessed by others, other people may be able to access unencrypted personal information. If you do not want your information to be available to others, exercise caution when using public computers or devices or when using any computer or device to which others may have access.
We recommend that you take every precaution in protecting your personal information when you are on the Internet. For example, change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers when creating passwords, and make sure you use a secure browser. You should also be aware that names that you give your Wi-Fi-enabled devices, home networks and services (also known as "friendly names") may be detectable by others outside your home, so you should not use personal information as part of your friendly names.
Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser (if you allow) that enables the Site or service provider systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.
You may refuse to accept cookies by activating the appropriate setting on your browser or mobile device. However, some features of our Site may not work as intended if you disable cookies, and areas that require registration or authentication may not be accessible.

Pharmagel does not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our Site, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. Pharmagel may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our policies, or protect our rights or others’ rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
