A Word On "Cookies". Cookies are small items of data that some websites either write to the computer hard drive upon visiting the site(s) or store in the browser. These data files contain information the site can use to organize the pages members have visited on a particular website. Some of our websites may use "cookie" technology to measure site activity and tailor information to fit personal interests. In this way, SCUP can deliver tailor-made information suiting member interests upon the next visit to our site(s). Our use of "cookie" technology is, thus, to provide members with a more individualized delivery of information and an optimal viewing experience.
Our Commitment To Data Security. Because member privacy is important to SCUP, we have installed safeguards to secure the credit card information we collect online. Our e-commerce site uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology supported by popular browsers to protect your online transactions. SSL encrypts your credit card number, name, address, and phone number before they travel over the Internet. SCUP also uses additional technologies and measures to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy, and ensure appropriate use of this information.
