HOW DOES NAORCA SHARE MY INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES?

For this purpose, we and our third-party advertising companies note some of the pages you visit on our websites through the use of pixel tags (also called clear gifs).

HOW WILL NAORCA PROTECT MY INFORMATION?
When you place an order or provide personal information, we employ industry-standard technical and organizational security measures, such as encryption, where appropriate. Encryption scrambles the information in your request, including your any and all personal information, so this information can only be viewed by NAORCA. NAORCA currently uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology, where appropriate, for Internet-based transactions.
However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we have taken appropriate steps to protect your personal information, NAORCA cannot ensure or otherwise warrant the security of any information you provide to us or from our website, and therefore you use our site at your own risk.
