SECURITYMPS has made it a priority to provide a secure shopping experience by protecting the information of the customer. We (MPS, PayPal, Auctiva Commerce, and our other trusted Providers) maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to guard nonpublic information about you. Personal/sensitive information including credit cards, social security numbers, and financial data that customers provide is transmitted and encrypted through Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and none are stored on our server. This information is stored securely on the website of our payment gateway (PayPal) that is required to keep your information confidential and is solely responsible for its security and maintenance. All credit card payments are processed securely through PayPal.com on their (not our) secure website. As an additional measure of security for our customers, our website(s) are protected by an active SSL certificate (pending). You may shop safely and with confidence at MPS.
YOUR ACCOUNTIf you visit or use MPS or any of our other company owned websites, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your computer, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password. If you are under the age of 18, you may use MPS only with involvement of a parent or guardian.

COOKIESMPS, in conjunction with our Internet Service Providers (ISPs), Auctiva Commerce, eBay, PayPal and various other trusted Providers use small informational text files called “cookies” that are unique and can only be read by our website when you choose to visit us again. These cookies are placed in the customer’s computer to create a better shopping experience and for the customer’s convenience. These small files allow the store to recognize a customer, allowing information to be recalled during the order process. In addition, information is gathered about the customer’s computer, time spent at the site and order history. No information relating to billing profiles or account login is recorded. MPS utilizes cookies only to review the effectiveness of the website and provide useful improvements in the future. Customers who do not allow cookies to be saved on their computer will not be able to download or process certain information and be unable to use the “Wishlist” feature within our store.
