General User Guidelines:
  • Guard your password. It's the key to your account. People who work for any service provider should never request your password. If they do, refuse the request and report the incident to Plaid Frog immediately. Be creative when you establish a password, and never give it to anyone. Avoid using a telephone number, birth date or a portion of your Social Security number. Instead, use a combination of numbers, letters and symbols.
  • When shopping online, be very careful about revealing your social security or credit card number and shipping address. Many web sites scramble or encrypt information like that to ensure the safety of your personal data. TheVillagesGuide.com has implemented SSL (secure socket layer), 128-bit encryption on all pages that include any personal or financial information, including all credit card transactions and registration.
  • To a large extent, privacy is up to you when you enter a web site. Look for a privacy statement. Sites that are most sensitive to your privacy concerns not only have privacy policies, but also display them clearly and conspicuously, offer you a choice to share your personal information or restrict its use, and explain how your information will be used. Every registered user of TheVillagesGuide.com chooses how much information they should reveal. This is a distinction to note when visiting other sites.
  • E-mail is relatively private but not completely . Don't put anything into an electronic message that you wouldn't want to see posted on a neighborhood bulletin board.
  • Pay by credit or charge card. If you pay by credit or charge card online, your transaction will be protected by the Fair Credit Billing Act. Under this law, you have the right to dispute charges under certain circumstances and temporarily withhold payment while the creditor is investigating them. In the event of unauthorized use of your credit or charge card, you generally would be held liable only for the first $50 in charges. Some companies offer an online shopping guarantee that ensures you will not be held responsible for any unauthorized charges made online, and some cards may provide additional warranty, return and/or purchase protection benefits.
  • Keep a record. Be sure to print a copy of your purchase order and confirmation number for your records.
