Is your site secure and is my personal information safe?

The short answer: Don't worry. We won't share any of your information with anyone outside our company or use the information in an inappropriate manner. Information you exchange with us--including credit card information--is secure. And yes, we hate spam, too.

A more detailed explanation:

We collect your information when you place an order, when you use the free e-card service at our retail site, and when customers subscribe to our e-mail list. We use this information at our own site, but we do not use your information to keep track of the places you visit on the World Wide Web, and we will never share any of your information with a third party.

Galison/Mudpuppy has put strict security measures in place to ensure that your personal information is well protected. Your information is held on a secure network and is available only to a small number of very trustworthy Galison employees. When you place an order or log on to view your personal information, you are using a secure server.
