We are a PCI compliant ecommerce site. In addition to the PCI protocols we follow, this website obviously provides SSL secures transactions and communications from our website to your computer. This protects your credit cards, passwords, filter element part numbers, and sensitive data.
SSL Certificates activate the built in SSL/TLS security functionality of web servers, browsers and applications. It is the standard security technology to encrypt any browser-to-server communications over https, such as credit card transactions, logins, web mail, and database to database communications. Using SSL Certificates activates the yellow padlock so you can trust that our website is secure.

Essential information we collect
In operating our store, it is essential for us to capture some information about your device, such as your IP address and information related to your visit when you browse our store. For example, this might include time-stamp, the last page or product you visited, the indication that you logged in. We do that in order to:
● remember who you are after you log in so that you do not need to authenticate at each click;
● monitor if our website is running with the high performance we are dedicated to providing;
● let you browse between products without having to start back from the home page at each click;
● remember if you put something in your shopping cart before you decide to checkout; and
● control that your data is processed securely.
If you have started to buy one of our products, but have not completed the purchase, you may have provided partial information, such as your email. In that case, we might send you an email to remind you about your interest. If you are not comfortable in receiving further emails of this kind, we will give you a simple opportunity to opt-out. Your privacy means a lot to us and we will stop sending you these communications right away. Reviews If you have completed a purchase, we will send you an email to ask you to review the product you bought. We want to be sure that whether you love your purchase or have a complaint, you can share your opinion with other customers.
We also use some specific information related to your visit, such as the timestamp of your visit, the page or the product you viewed, where you are coming from (if you came to our store because you clicked on an advertisement or you just opened our direct link). This is very similar to the “essential information,” but we use it to provide you with a personalized experience. The information on your visit provides us with insights on your interests and allows us to send you relevant communications. We capture this information through cookies, called a "beacon," that we allow you to block. We also use that information to send you newsletters for things like reminding you to buy another filter.
