Credit Card Information
We do not store any credit card information of the subscriber. When a subscriber does any transaction with Netscribes, he/she is redirected to the Third-party website where he is required to fill in his credit card details. After the transaction is completed with the third-party website, he will get a confirmation page showing the status of the transaction. Netscribes does not have any control of the information on those websites and does not take any responsibility for the misuse of the credit card information provided by the subscriber to the third party.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses Netscribes Site.
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide certain features.
The "help" portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of some of the Site's best and updated features, and we recommend that you leave them turned on.
