SAFETY AND SECURITY OF YOUR TRANSACTIONS WITH ARMALITE

Armalite is concerned about the safety and security every contact and purchase that you make with us. We want to ensure that our transaction process is extremely safe and that our customers' information is secure.

When buying on any online venue, caution must always be practiced.

The overwhelming majority of online transactions are completed without incident. Armalite has developed the following guidelines to help ensure that your online shopping experience is safe and secure.

Protect your passwords.

  • Always log yourself out when you complete an online session.
  • Keep your passwords private. Anyone who knows your password may access your account.  Don’t write your passwords down where they may be found by others.
  • When creating a password, use at least 6 characters--a combination of letters and numbers is best. Do not use dictionary words, your name, e-mail address, or other personal information that can be easily obtained. We also recommend that you change your password frequently.
  • Avoid using the same password for multiple online accounts.
  • Passwords are case sensitive. For instance, "abcdef9" and "ABCDEF9" are two different passwords. When choosing a password, remember the capitalization you use.

Be wary of unsolicited e-mail and telephone contacts.

  • In the unlikely event that we have a problem with your personal or credit card information, we may contact you by phone or email.  If you receive a contact asking for personal information and you aren’t certain if it is actually Armalite calling, merely ask to call us back.  Get the name of our caller and call him back on the Armalite phone number.  Then you will be certain that you aren’t being spoofed.  If you receive a suspicious e-mail with a link to update your account information, do not click on the link--instead go directly to www.armalite.com and then to your account.
  • If you are contacted by, or receive an unsolicited e-mail from an unknown entity, and are asked to confirm or provide your password or personal or banking information, simply disregard the request.
