We realize how important security is to you as a customer. It is true that there are sites that do not go through the proper precautions when handling a customers personal information. Anytime that information is collected from a customer for an order it is done so over an SSL Secure server. No credit card information is ever sent by e-mail. We must connect through a secure connection to retrieve all new orders and delete those orders after they have been processed.
We use custom built shopping cart software that keeps all of your credit card information safe with encryption.

Information We Collect and How We Use It
4WS collects certain information from and about its users three ways: directly from our Web Server logs, the user, and with Cookies. When you visit our Website, we may track information to administer the site and analyze its usage for the purpose of serving our visitors and customers better. This website uses Google AdWords’ free conversion tracking features on certain pages. If you contact us online, the destination page will have code on it that will help us understand the path you took to arrive on that page. The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your shopping experience at 4WS. Here are the types of information we gather:
Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain optional information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of some of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, improving our stores, and communicating with you.
Automatic Information: We receive and store only one piece of automated information when you interact with us. We use "cookies" to retain the SessionID for each visit when your Web browser accesses 4WS. With this SessionID we can use session variables that exist only as long as you're on our site. When you return, you will have to log in before we can recognize you.

Changes to This Statement
4WS has the discretion to occasionally update this privacy statement. We encourage you to periodically review this privacy statement to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the personal information we collect.
Due to the large amount of fraudulent orders recieved we have developed a common practice for dealing with them. We will attempt to contact the person using information provided on the order if an order is suspected of being fraudulant. If no contact is possible we will examine every aspect of the order including the originating IP address, name, phone numbers provided and any other information that is usable. If an order is deemed to be faudulant we reserve the right, at our discresion, to distribute teh partial card number and any information from the order to credit card faud systems. We will also use any and all of the information provided in any way. This includes, but is not limited to sharing the information with authorities, the actual cardholder and anybody else that the information may benefit.
Overseas Orders Policy
We will no longer ship orders outside of the US with the possible exception of Canada. Canadian residents should e-mail to see about the possibility of shipping and an estimated price because the shipping prices posted on the website are for the lower 48 states only.
If you have questions regarding our Privacy Statement, its implementation, failure to adhere to this Privacy Statement and/or our general practices, please contact us.
