Privacy and Security

At Sparks Imaging, your right to privacy and data security is a primary concern. In a few areas on our web site we ask you to provide information that will enable us to enhance your site visit, to assist you with technical support issues or to follow up with you after your visit. It is completely optional for you to participate.

For example, we request information from you when you:

Register to access the Sparks Imaging Online Catalog.

  • Place an order.
  • Provide feedback in an online survey.
  • Request e-mail notification of your order status.
  • Subscribe to a newsletter or a mailing list.

In each of the instances above, we may ask for your name, e-mail address, phone number, address, type of business, size of business, preferences, customer ID, as well as other similar personal information that is needed to register or subscribe you to services or offers. If we ever ask for significantly different information we will inform you. In the case of newsletters or mailing lists, you will be able to “unsubscribe” to these mailings at any time.

For our business customers, we will send you information via electronic means about our various products and services we feel may be of interest to you. Only Sparks Imaging (or agents working on behalf of Sparks Imaging and under confidentiality agreements) will send you these direct mailings. If you do not want to receive such mailings, simply call Customer Service for your region (see Contact Us) or follow the “Unsubscribe” directions that accompany our email marketing communications.

Sparks Imaging will not sell your personal information to any outside organization for its use in marketing without your consent.

Information regarding you (such as name, address and phone number) or your order and the products you purchase will not be sold to any outside organization for its use in marketing or solicitation without your consent.

Our use of this technology does not mean that we automatically know any information about you. We might be able to ascertain what type of browser you are using, but beyond that, our use of cookies is designed only to provide you with a better experience when using www.sparksimaging.com and the Sparks Imaging Online Catalog. Sparks Imaging has no desire or intent to infringe on your privacy while using the www.sparksimaging.com site.

These terms will be determined based on overall credit history and financial ability to pay for all goods purchased. Please allow 5-10 business days for application processing.

Payments

For accounts with payment terms, when paying by check, please ensure that your customer number and invoice numbers are clearly listed to speed up processing and avoid possible errors. Any deductions must include proper documentation before they are allowed. Deductions for shortages, defective products, returns, etc., MUST have an accompanying credit memo when deducted from the payment. Failure to follow these instructions may result in credit not being applied.

 

Delinquent Accounts

For accounts with payment terms, if an invoice remains unpaid after the due date, further shipments may be placed on "hold" status until the past due amount is paid in full. NSF checks and stop payments will be subject to a $35.00 service charge. In the event of repeated delinquencies, and if we cannot otherwise resolve the matter to our satisfaction, your account may be placed in the hands of a collection agency or attorney for collection. In the event that your account is sent for collection, you will be obligated to pay the full balance of your account, plus interest thereon, at the highest rate permitted by law, together with all reasonable attorney’s fees, collection fees and related expenses incurred by Sparks Imaging.
