How we collect and use personal information – We only collect personal information that you provide to us voluntarily, such as by placing an order for Products via the Site, or Catalog or by subscribing to BioSecurity.com’s monthly New Product Newsletter (whether through the Site or otherwise). Such personal information may include your name, company name, and e-mail address, and with respect to purchases, your shipping address and billing information.

BioSecurity.com does not share your contact information with any other third party without your consent, except to a court or governmental agency if required by law, as required by a court of competent jurisdiction, or to third parties it engages to provide services that involve data processing on its behalf. Such third parties do not include advertisers or marketers that would contact or solicit you. For example, BioSecurity.com engages a third party to process credit card payments for service fees, and will disclose billing information to such third party only as necessary for them to process such transactions.

Once the data reaches BioSecurity.com’s server, your personal data will be protected by the same security software BioSecurity.com uses to guard all of its essential business data.

How we use “cookies” – As you probably know, “cookies” are small pieces of information that some Web sites store on your computer’s hard drive when you visit them. Like many other Web sites, the Site uses cookies to identify products that you have selected to sample. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies but allow you to modify security settings so you can approve or reject cookies on a case-by-case basis. Even if you do not use cookies, you can still access all of the features on our site.

Security – BioSecurity.com utilizes the proven advanced secure payment system with VeriSign® to process credit card orders. The credit-card information you enter into the sample form and order form is secure. Nevertheless, it is impossible to guarantee the security of information you disclose online from a sufficiently powerful attack from unauthorized third parties.

California Proposition 65 Statement

California's Proposition 65 entitles California consumers to special warnings for products that contain chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm if those products expose consumers to such chemicals. We care about our customers' safety and hope that the information below helps with your purchasing decisions.

California voters approved Proposition 65 in 1986 to “protect California citizens and the State’s drinking water sources from chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and to inform citizens about exposure to such chemicals.” This law applies to people and businesses in California, including those who ship products into the state. Under Prop 65, the State maintains a long list of chemicals that are considered under the statute to be either carcinogens or reproductive toxicants. Many chemicals are on both lists. Currently, over 900 chemicals are listed. These chemicals can be naturally occurring in the Earth's soil, in the environment or manufactured, and are found in a vast array of consumer products.

One of the core principals of our business is to provide our customers with high quality and safe products. Our products meet all applicable federal standards.

The following warning statements are required by California law and apply to all the products available from us. This California regulation does not address safe levels for most of the chemicals on the list. Anything detectable at any level, including trace amounts, must be noted with the “Safe Harbor” wording.

Proposition 65 Warning

WARNING: This product contains
a chemical known to the State of
California to cause cancer.

WARNING: This product contains
a chemical known to the State of
California to cause birth defects or other
reproductive harm.

If your company intends to use our components in a product sold or delivered in California, we recommend that you take steps to determine whether the warning requirements of California’s “Prop 65” apply. Your company is solely responsible for determining whether your finished consumer product needs to be labeled in compliance with Prop 65.

For further information regarding California Propsition 65:
