4. Cookies Policy
We use both session cookies, which are deleted when you close your browser, and persistent cookies, which remain on your device until they expire or you delete them. We may also use third-party cookies, which are cookies set by a third-party website or service, such as Google Analytics, to track how our website is used and to provide us with analytics and other information.
5. Links to Other Websites
Our website may contain links to other websites that are not operated by Gulfline Furniture. We provide these links for your convenience and to enhance your shopping experience. However, we have no control over the content, policies, or practices of these websites and we cannot be responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these websites.
Please note that when you leave our website and visit a third-party website, you will be subject to the terms and privacy policies of that website.

6. Secure Area
We take security very seriously, and we are committed to ensuring that your personal information is protected. We use industry-standard security protocols and technologies to create a secure area on our website where you can enter and transmit sensitive information such as credit card details. This secure area is encrypted using Transport Layer Security (TLS) to ensure that your information is protected during transmission.
TLS is a cryptographic protocol that provides secure communication over the internet. When you enter the secure area of our website, your browser establishes a secure connection with our servers using TLS. This ensures that any information you transmit to us, including credit card details, is encrypted and cannot be intercepted by unauthorized parties.
We also use HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) to provide a secure connection between your browser and our website. HTTPS encrypts all data transmitted between your browser and our website, including your personal information and credit card details. This further ensures the security of your information during transmission.
7. Credit Card Information
We take the security of your credit card information seriously. We collect credit card information only for the purpose of processing your orders and do not store it on our servers. All credit card transactions are processed by reputable third-party payment processors that comply with industry standards for security and confidentiality.
We use the latest security measures to protect your credit card information during transmission, including encryption with Transport Layer Security (TLS). Our payment processors are certified as Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliant, and we take reasonable measures to protect your information.
If you have any concerns about the security of your credit card information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We recommend that you also take steps to protect your own privacy and security when using our website.
