Using your user name and a password of your choice, you may access your account online at any time to add, delete, or change information. In creating this account, you authorize STELLA SARMIENTO to store your name, address, email address, telephone number and other personal information that you may provide such as your birth date, gender, and credit card number.

STELLA SARMIENTO encourages you to log out at the conclusion of your session. By doing so, although your information may still be stored with STELLA SARMIENTO, it will not be accessible to anyone else from that computer.

4. Your Security.

4.1 STELLA SARMIENTO goes a long way to keep your financial information private and safe. STELLA SARMIENTO takes appropriate electronic, physical and administrative steps to maintain the security and accuracy of personally identifiable information collected, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to database servers, as well as employing electronic security systems and password protections that guard against unauthorized access. In addition, it is STELLA SARMIENTO’S policy to never send your credit card number via e-mail. Please keep in mind that e-mail is not encrypted and is not considered to be a secure means of transmitting credit card information.

4.2 STELLA SARMIENTO uses Secure Socket Layers (SSL), the industry standard in transferring information to process your orders. The SSL encrypts, or translates, your order information into a highly indecipherable code, which is processed immediately. All credit card transactions occur in a secure area of the Website to protect you from any loss, misuse or alteration of information collected. When you have finished shopping and begin the checkout process, you will move into the secure area of the Website. Once you have entered, the page address (URL) will change from “http” to “https” to let you know you are in a secure area. Also, a key or a closed lock will appear in the lower right hand corner of your screen to notify you of this change. You will remain in this secure zone for the entire checkout process.

4.3 Unfortunately, despite STELLA SARMIENTO’s best efforts, the transmission of data over the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While STELLA SARMIENTO will use every reasonable means to ensure the security of information you transmit through the Website, STELLA SARMIENTO cannot guarantee that such information will not be intercepted by third parties. STELLA SARMIENTO will, however, prosecute any unauthorized or fraudulent transactions to the fullest extent permitted by law.

5. Links to Other Websites.

5.1 While visiting the Website, you may link to websites operated by third parties or you may have come to the Website using a link found in another website. This does not mean that STELLA SARMIENTO endorses these websites or the services or goods they provide. STELLA SARMIENTO does not make any representations or warranties about any website that may be linked to the STELLA SARMIENTO Website. Such other websites are independent from STELLA SARMIENTO, and STELLA SARMIENTO has no responsibility, control for their products, activities or information.

5.2 also, STELLA SARMIENTO’s privacy practices may differ from those of these other websites. If you provide personal information at one of those sites, you are subject to the privacy policy of the operator of that website, not the STELLA SARMIENTO Privacy Policy. Please make sure you understand the other website’s privacy policy before providing personal information.
