To maximize your privacy, our policy at Home Comfort Centre’s Sharp Filter Shop-Online is to avoid the use of cookies wherever possible. Our in-house designed shopping cart does not require the use of cookies. We do use cookies to optionally log you in automatically when you visit our site, but only after you approve of such use.

How we protect your personal information
The Home Comfort Centre’s Sharp Filter Shop-Online Web site uses industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where personal information is required. To make purchases from the Home Comfort Centre’s Sharp Filter Shop-Online Store, you must use an SSL-enabled browser such as Netscape Navigator 3.0 or later, Internet Explorer, or Safari. This encryption technology protects your name, address, and credit card number during data transport. Some older browser versions and some firewalls do not permit communication through secure servers. In that case, you will be unable to securely sign in to your account or to purchase products. You may choose to sign in to your account or purchase products through our non-SSL enabled server, but your password will not be encrypted. If you have already securely saved billing information to your account, you can still order securely using your saved information. However, if you submit new billing information through the non-SSL enabled server, it will not be encrypted. When you create an online account at Home Comfort Centre’s Sharp Filter Shop-Online, you will need to select a personal password that you will remember. It must be at least 6 alphanumeric characters. To maximize your level of protection, you should choose a combination of both letters and numbers, and change your password often. You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords or any account information. Although we cannot guarantee against any loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, alteration or destruction of data, we take reasonable precautions to prevent such unfortunate occurrences. Home Comfort Centre’s Sharp Filter Shop-Online cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us by email and you do so at your own risk.

Access to your personal information
You always have access to the information we have about you. To review and update your personal contact information, simply login to your account and view the information there.

You can browse anonymously
