Safety, Security and Privacy
OUR SECURE SHOPPING GUARANTEE
BUILT utilizes GeoTrust Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate data transmission to ensure your personal information remains private. SSL is a technology for managing the security of online message transmission that works by encrypting or scrambling any information sent from your browser to your server. This makes it impossible to intercept or tamper with the information when it’s en route to us.
You can be sure that a website uses SSL by checking the bottom right hand corner of your browser. If you see a padlock icon, that means SSL encryption is in place and that the information being sent from the page is safe. Another way to determine if SSL is in place is to look at the address bar of your web browser. When you edit your account, view your order history, or go to check out at www.builtny.com, the http prefix of the web address will change to https, which signifies that SSL security has been enabled on the page.

Information We Collect and How We Use It
We collect a variety of information from the customers and visitors who use our website. Below we've listed the types of information we collect, as well as how we might use that information.
When you place an order with us, we ask for your contact information (e.g., your name, address, phone number, and e-mail address). We use this information to process your order, to send you updates on your order status, and to get in touch with you if we have trouble processing your order. In addition, we ask for your e-mail address so we can contact you periodically regarding special offers or products we think you might be interested in. If you do not wish to receive these notifications, we will honor your request.
If you contact us via e-mail or postal mail, we will use the return address you provide to answer your inquiry. This contact information is not used for any other purpose.
During the checkout process, we also collect your billing address and credit card information. This information is used for billing purposes only.
With Whom The Information Collected May Be Shared
We do not share your personal information with outside parties, except to the extent necessary to complete your order or to provide services where the outside party is acting on our behalf and has no independent right to use the information we provide (e.g., a third-party shipping or customer-support center). Such parties are restricted from using your information in any manner other than helping us provide you with the products and services available on our site.
We may combine individual customer data, including purchases and preferences, site usage patterns, and other related information to create collective profiles of our visitors and their activities. We may share this information in an aggregate form with vendors, business partners, and other third parties to describe our website and customers. For example, we may tell a potential partner that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that X number of people from a certain zip code purchased certain items. We would not, however, disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.
We also reserve the right to disclose personally identifiable information to legal authorities to the extent required by law, or if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to protect our own or others' rights, safety, or property. Builtny.com will have no legal liability for such disclosures.
