Third Party Notice
This site contains links to other sites. EPage wants you to be aware that
when you click on links (including advertising banners), which take you to
third-party Web sites, you will be subject to such third parties' privacy
policies. While we support the protection of privacy on the Internet, we
expressly disclaim any and all liability for the actions of third parties,
including without limitation actions relating to the use and/or disclosure
of Personal Information by third parties.

to the general public via the Web) is not made available to these third
EPage uses third-party advertising companies to serve ads
when you visit our Web site. Our third-party advertising companies
also may separately place or recognize a cookie file on your browser
in the course of delivering advertisements to this Site. These
companies may use information (not including your name, address email
address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web
sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services
of interest to you. If you would like more information
about this practice and to know your choices about not having this
information used, please go to:
From time to time, we may use customer information for new,
unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice. If
our information practices change at some time in the future we will
post the policy changes to our Web site to notify you of these changes
and provide you with the ability to opt out of these new uses. If you
are concerned about how your information is used, you should check back
at our Web site periodically.
This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse
and alteration of the information under our control. We offer secure
web pages to collect certain kinds of user information and we store certain
kinds of data in encrypted form. We follow reasonable technical and management
practices to help protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of data
stored on our system. While no computer system is completely secure, we believe
the measures implemented by our web site reduce the likelihood of security
problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved. We always use
industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving
consumer data exchanged with our site.
Credit Card Security
The Internet is a vast network of computers. Because the data passes
from computer to computer, some Internet shoppers worry that unauthorized
persons may intercept the data and gain access to credit card numbers,
but shopping on a secure site is actually safer than handing a credit
card to a waiter in a restaurant. Taking the steps below will lower
the chances of interception of your credit card number:
- Limit your online shopping to Internet merchants, such as us, with
sites equipped with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL prevents
unauthorized people from intercepting your data.
- Use a browser that
supports SSL. These browsers show a symbol in the status bar, such
as a key or lock, when you are on a site that uses SSL. Most banks
will cover the cost of fraud resulting from unauthorized use of your
credit card or may limit your liability.
Credit card information collected is encrypted through Secure Sockets
Layer before it is transmitted over the Internet.
We fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those
who use our services for illegal activities, and may in our sole
discretion disclose Personal Information or other information to satisfy
any law, regulation, subpoena, or government request. We reserve the
right to release Personal Information or other information about users
who we believe are engaged in illegal activities or are otherwise in
court order, if we believe in our sole discretion that such disclosure
is necessary or appropriate to operate the Web site, or to protect
the rights or property of EPage, its affiliates, or any of their officers,
directors, or employees, agents, third-party content providers, suppliers,
sponsors, or licensors. We also reserve the right to report to law
enforcement agencies any activities we reasonably believe in our sole
discretion to be unlawful.

policy on this page which it is your responsibility to review frequently.
