Our Web Sites
London Drugs values our relationship with each of our customers and the trust you place with us, particularly when you provide personal information to us online. We work very hard to protect the security and privacy of any personal information you provide on all of our web sites (collectively, the "Site"). Your personal information will only be used as described below.
We consider personal information to include your name, address, phone number, email address, credit-card information and any other personal information that can be linked to you.
At London Drugs, we do not and will not sell or rent your personal information to anyone for any reason.
Security of your personal information
The security of your personal information is very important to us. For certain types of online transactions, such as requests for prescription refills, we use a technology called TLS (Transport Layer Security). If your browser is capable of TLS (and most are), your personal information will be automatically encrypted, or encoded, before it is sent over the Internet. The encryption process protects your information, such as phone number, billing and shipping information by scrambling it before it is sent to us from your computer.
For other types of online transactions, and in particular those that involve providing personal financial information such as credit cards, London Drugs has also obtained a digital certificate from COMODO CA Limited, a leading provider of Internet trust services. When you enter a secured portion of our Site or photolab.londondrugs.com , an image of a closed lock or a solid key should appear in the bottom bar of your browser window. If you click on this image, a small popup window displaying site-security information will appear. This certificate guarantees that your personal information is being transmitted in secure (encrypted) form to our London Drugs web server, not to some unknown or unauthorized server.
