You are free to prevent cookies from being saved on your hard drive by adjusting the corresponding settings in your browser. However, turning off these settings may result in limited functionality.
Security Measures and Fraudulent Scams
If you set up an account, your account, profile, and the information contained therein are password protected. Please note that you are not permitted to provide your password to anyone else.
You may receive, possibly by telephone, mail, telegram, email, a short messaging service (texting), or a link to another page, a message claiming to be from us or our affiliates. In some cases, the communication requests personal or financial information, such as, but limited to, a credit and/or debit card number and pin, passwords, and bank account information.
The communication will claim that this information is needed, whether it be to make a payment, system maintenance, charge late fees, upgrade or improve your account, or to tender some form of other service. Another scam refers an individual to a web site resembling ours or our affiliates, where the person is asked to enter their personal or financial information. Do not in any way, shape, or form, make available your information to these fraudulent entities.
Ridgeway Lavender Incorporated and its affiliates will never request personal or financial information of any kind by ways of telephone, mail, telegram, email, short messaging service (texting), or a link to another page. If you have been a victim of a scam, have a suspicion that you are being scammed, or have been contacted by an entity that is trying to scam you, call us immediately. If your credit card or banking information has been stolen, call your financial institution and the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre immediately.
You may receive telephone calls, mail, telegram, and emails from us on occasion. Should you wish to verify the authenticity of any such forms of communications, contact us directly via our Contact Us page.
Please remember to log out of your account and to close your Internet browser window when you leave the our site; this is especially important if you use your computer in public locations. We assume no liability for the abuse of login data and passwords used.
We treat data as an asset that must be highly protected. We use security measures to protect your personal information against unauthorised access and disclosure. Although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.
For more information on scams, to report deceptive telemarketing, or if you have given personal or financial information to fraudster or scammer, contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre here.
Our Commitment to Data Security
We take your privacy seriously.
We have appropriate physical, electronic, and procedural security safeguards to protect and secure the information we collect.
Secure Sockets Layering (SSL)
We utilise the latest and most secure version of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology. This technology safeguards your personal information and guarantees privacy. It encrypts all of your personal information, including payment information, name, email address, and mailing address, so that it can not be read as the information travels over the Internet. SSL technology is the industry standard for secure online transactions.
Protection from Web Crawlers or Spam
We assure you that we will use your e-mail address with your express consent only for communication purposes. We will never ask you for your financial information via email. We will not rent or sell your e-mail address to third parties, and we will prevent your e-mail address from being recorded by "web crawlers" or "web spiders" to the best of our ability. If you believe that your e-mail address has been recorded in this way, or that you have been requested to share your financial information with an alleged staff member, do not disclose your information to this entity, and please contact us immediately through our Contact Us page.
