What We Collect We use a standard log utility that provides statistics to us in regard to how many pages are being accessed on our site. While visiting our standard web site (noted in your browser address as pages ending in .shtml, .html or .htm) this information is stored in a log file for the purpose of analyzing what pages are accessed, which files are downloaded, and what errors occur. We review which top domain addresses visit our site. This process does not collect any personal information about you or your business. These logs are stored in a secure area temporarily, until reports are run, then are removed from our server.

When you register for updates, your name and email address only are written to a secure file and stored on our server which is a secure system. We do not sell, trade or distribute your email address to anyone. This information is used to send you updates you have requested. You may be removed from this email list at any time by emailing support@emsbooks.com.

When you shop our online store, a SESSION ID tracks movements and your IP address is stored for authentication reasons only. This is standard in all shopping cart programs.

Credit Card Security

When you walk into a store, you know who you are dealing with. You see the products, the branding and the store assistant. You can be sure that if something should be wrong with your purchase, you’ll have recourse to the store manager or owner. But on the Internet, website visitors generally have no reliable way of knowing who owns the website (the virtual store). When you visit a website with the intent of making an online purchase, you should know whom you’ll be paying and have proof of the identity of the website owner, and be confident that the personal information you send to the website cannot be intercepted by other Internet users. This is where SSL digital certificates come to the fore.

SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is a protocol developed by Netscape that enables a web browser and a web server to communicate securely; it allows the web browser to authenticate the web server. The SSL protocol requires the web server to have a digital certificate installed on it in order for an SSL connection to be made.

Thanks to our SSL-enabled web server and SSL certificate, you are assured of three things: Authentication: The website really is owned by Emergency Training Associates. Message privacy: Using a unique "session key", SSL encrypts all information exchanged between you and our web server, such as credit card numbers and other personal data, ensuring that personal information cannot be viewed if it is intercepted by unauthorized parties. Message integrity: The data cannot be tampered with over the Internet.

Third-Party Web Beacons: We use third-party web beacons from Yahoo! to help analyze where visitors go and what they do while visiting our website. Yahoo! may also use anonymous information about your visits to this and other websites in order to improve its products and services and 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 by Yahoo!, click here.

If you are concerned about the security of your credit card, or any information you are transmitting to us through the website please contact us by telephone at 800 367-0382.
