1 - Do you collect any of my personal information?
We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (Personal Information) or allows us to contact you. Generally this information is requested when you create a Registration ID on the site or when you make a purchase, sign up for our newsletters or participate in a discussion on our articles. We use your Personal Information for four primary purposes:
- To make the site easier for you to use by not having to enter information more than once.
- To process your transaction when you purchase one of our products.
- To help us improve our website by creating content most relevant to you based on the information and feedback we receive from you.
- To alert you to special offers, updated information and other new services from Asbury Apothecary.
2 - What do you do with my personal information?
When you join us, you provide us with your contact information, including your name and email address. We use this information to send you updates about your order, questionnaires to measure your satisfaction with our service and announcements about new and exciting products that we offer. When you order from us, we ask for your credit card number and billing address. We use this information only to bill you for the product(s) you order at that time. For your convenience, we do save billing information in case you want to order from us again, but we don't use this information again without your permission. We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivering purchases, answering customer questions about products or services, sending postal mail and processing event registration. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose. Asbury Apothecary will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Asbury Apothecary or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Asbury Apothecary and its family of Web sites, and, (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Asbury Apothecary, its Web sites, or the public.Back to Top

SSL is one of the safest encryption technologies available. Our SSL certificate is signed by GeoTrust and offers 256-bit SSL encryption. In addition, your transactions are guaranteed under the Fair Credit Billing Act. This Act states that your bank cannot hold you liable for more than $50.00 in fraudulent credit card charges. If your bank does hold you liable for $50.00 or less, we'll cover your liability provided the unauthorized, fraudulent use of your credit card resulted through no fault of your own and from purchases made from us over our secure server. In the event of unauthorized use of your credit card, you must notify your credit card provider in accordance with their reporting rules and procedures.

10 - Tell me more about these Customer Profiles.
Every registered customer has a unique personal profile. Each profile is assigned a unique personal identification number, which helps us ensure that only you can access your profile. When you register, we create your profile, assign a personal identification number, then send this personal identification number back to your hard drive in the form of a cookie, which is a very small bit of code. This code is uniquely yours. It is your passport to seamless travel across www.asburyapothecary.com, allowing you to make purchases, order free newsletters, and join into discussions on our site without having to fill out registration forms with information you've already provided. Even if you switch computers, you won't have to re-register – just use your Registration ID to identify yourself.Back to Top
