Your IP address is your computer’s unique address on the Internet that lets other computers connected to the Internet know where to send data.

It can be used to help detect fraud.
Whenever you are connected to a web-site you are considered to be in a session. There are two types of sessions, encrypted and anonymous. An anonymous connection only contains identifying information the session. Mainly this is a session id and an indication that you are browsing anonymously. An encrypted session provides the high level of security required to process orders and payments.

Do not give personally identifiable information or credit card information online unless you see a locked padlock at the bottom of the browser or near the address bar. The padlock indicates that your browser has established an encrypted connection using an SSL certificate that has been verified by a reputable third party to belong to our site.

Protection of Minors
My Hook-N-Needle believes that protecting children's privacy online is extremely important and respects national and international laws, including the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA"), which applies in the United States. My Hook-N-Needle does not knowingly collect personal information from children; however, it does not verify the age of visitors to its site.
We hope parents monitor their children’s Internet use and ask that minors get their parents’ permission before providing any information online. If, at any time, you have a concern about children’s use of the web or any part of this policy, please contact us using the contact us link at the bottom of each page on our site.
