The Use Of Cookies: A cookie is a small file, which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyze web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences. We may set and use cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyze data about our web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Links to Other Sites: We provide links to promote our retailers, marketing partners and as a resource guide.  These sites run independently of Schaefer and have established their own privacy and security policies.  For the best online experience, we strongly encourage you to review these policies.

Security: Your order and credit card information is encrypted to prevent anyone else from reading it.  It is safer to order online through a secure site, than to have your credit card imprinted in a retail store or restaurant. We employ technologies including Secure Socket Layers (SSL), the industry standard, for transferring information to process your orders.  The SSL encrypts, or translates, your order information into a highly indecipherable code.

When you’re finished browsing and shopping and begin the checkout process, you will move into a secure area of our site.  A warning window may pop up to notify that you are entering the “safe” area. Once you’ve entered, the page address (URL) will change from http to https, to let you know you are in a secure area.  Also, a key or a closed lock will appear on the lower status bar of your browser to notify you of this change.  You will remain in this secure zone for the entire checkout process.  If you do not see the lock in Internet Explorer, click the View/Status Bar.

To ensure our customer security and site performance, our web servers are hosted off-site.

If you are still unsure of giving your credit card over the Internet, you may choose the Print & Call option at checkout.  Print & Call allows you to place an order online and then call, fax or mail your payment information.

Privacy Of Children: Our web site is not intended for use by children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13.

Policy Changes: The Schaefer Outfitter Privacy Policy is subject to change at any time without notice.  We encourage you to review our privacy policy periodically.
