On-line Credit Card Security

Secure Order Guarantee

We guarantee that your credit card information will be safe when you place an order at costlessparts.com. Our Secure Order Guarantee means that you'll never have to pay any money related to unauthorized charges to your credit card account, if those charges result from a transaction at costlessparts.com. Bottom line: You're always protected when you shop our site.

Here's how the guarantee works: If you're ever a victim of credit card fraud, the Fair Credit Act specifies that your credit card company can hold you liable for no more than $50 in fraudulent charges to your account. With the Secure Order Guarantee, you'll be reimbursed for any amount up to $50 billed to you by your credit card company for unauthorized charges to your account, if those charges result from an order you've placed on our secure server. For this protection, you must promptly notify your credit card company of any fraudulent charges and follow the procedures for doing so as outlined in your credit card agreement.

Your credit card is safe at costlessparts.com − guaranteed.

The Secure Order Process

The following section describes how the secure order process works, from start to finish.

1. Starting Your Order

Every purchase at costlessparts.com is secure, and clicking a Checkout button on the Shopping Cart page is all it takes to get started. The security features are automatic; you don't need to do anything special to invoke them. 2. Making a Positive ID

Once you've clicked the Checkout button, your browser looks for a digital certificate to confirm that it is communicating with costlessparts.com. Once a positive ID is made, your order continues.

We use Equifax software to enable the use of digital certificates. You can click on the secure symbol in the bottom bar of your browser to verify that costlessparts.com is a secure site. For your security, the verification process happens in the background every time you place an order on our site.

3. Entering Secure Mode

Next, your computer and our server begin communicating in secure mode, sending data back and forth in an encrypted format.

At this point you may see a window similar to the one at right, which some browsers display when you are about to receive a secure document. It's fine to click \"OK\" (or \"Continue\") to proceed – it simply means that you will begin receiving pages in a highly secure encrypted format.

After your browser has entered secure mode, we'll ask you to enter your credit card information. The encryption features of browser software are exceptionally powerful and ensure the security of this data as it is transmitted to our server. Our site makes use of the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol and 128-bit strong encryption to provide the highest level of security available.

4. My Order Is Complete. What Happens Next?

Security measures continue even after you've placed your order, as we process your order in a highly secure computing environment.

Security: Watching It Work

The most popular Web browsers, Internet Explorer and Netscape Communicator (aka Navigator), use clear visual symbols to let you know whether or not they are in secure mode. The symbols are displayed either at the bottom left or bottom right of your browser window. You can refer to the following chart to see which symbols are used with your browser.

Browser
Secure Symbol
Non-Secure Symbol

Microsoft
 
no symbol used

Netscape

Another indication that a browser is in secure mode can be found in the Web site address that your browser displays. The address will begin "http://" in standard, non-secure mode and "https://" in secure mode. The "s" stands for "secure."

Tip: Continuing to Browse

Once your order is complete, it's perfectly safe for you to continue to browse our site in standard mode. In fact, once you exit the ordering process, your browser will automatically revert to this slightly faster mode of communication.

What If I Make a Purchase with a Browser That Doesn't Support Security?

You can't. Because we don't want you ever to have to worry about ordering from our site without a secure connection, we've designed our system so that it will process orders only with browsers that support secure mode.

Please note that the latest versions of Netscape's and Microsoft's browsers have security features, and both are free for downloading. Visit either company's Web site for details.

If You Forget Your Password

In the event you forget your account password, we will email you with your current password when you give your email address. We do suggest that once you have received this email you should log onto your account and change your password. In the unlikely event that someone has intercepted your email.

About our privacy practices

Cost-Less Parts! specializes in the coin and commercial laundry business. In addition to great parts values, we offer technical information regarding your equipment. Our multi-million dollar spare parts inventory insures immediate filling of your needs - promptly. costlessparts.com wants to be your exclusive laundry parts supplier.

Part of achieving this goal involves working with information that helps us understand what customers want when they visit costlessparts.com. We do this in two ways. First, we analyze customer information in aggregate – that is, we collect information about thousands of site visits and analyze it as a whole. This information, centered around how customers navigate through the site and place orders, is in the form of \"clickstream data\" and/or data gathered via pixel tags. In this kind of study, we look for trends among many visitors to costlessparts.com rather than analyze information about any individual customer.

Second, we may use information gathered during your visit to help customize our communications with you. For instance, if you choose to view or buy glo-bars at costlessparts.com, we might offer you a link to related products the next time you visit us online, or we might send you our latest dryer mailer.

The Difference Between Monthly Specials, Hot Specials, And Smart Buys
.
What is the difference between Specials, Hot Specials, and Smart Buys?

Monthly Specials are super values that Cost-Less Parts! offers you as a result of bulk purchasing, overstocking, or inventory reduction. Savings we receive are directly passed onto you! These specials are often available for a limited time only, so hurry to buy before time runs out.

Hot Specials are consistently below industry prices and are only available online. (Up to 76% off list!)

Smart Buys are commercial laundry parts that come from the same component manufacturers who supply laundry equipment manufacturers (OEM). We offer these quality parts at reasonable prices. These parts are often referred to as \"aftermarket.\" We have tested these parts to insure that they meet the same quality standards, and they are protected by the same warranty. To identify a Smart Buy, the part number has had a SB added to the end of the regular part number. For example, if the OEM part number is F280342, the smart buy would be F280342SB.
