Catalina Aquarium will not sell, trade or give away your private information.
Catalina Aquarium has a firm commitment to safeguarding individual privacy. The following statement discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices. We want you to feel safe and comfortable taking advantage of our services and web site features. Catalina Aquarium maintains appropriate safeguards to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of personally identifiable information submitted to our site and periodically reviews and updates its security measures.
Credit Card Transactions
Recent studies show it is safer to use a credit card over the Internet than in physical stores and restaurants. Personal transactions require multiple sales copies with signatures giving employees access to credit card numbers and signatures. Internet transactions are performed electronically without multiple sales copies and handwritten signatures. Legislation exists to protect against fraudulent sales transactions. The Fair Credit Billing Act of 1975 was passed to help consumers resolve disputes with creditors and to ensure fair handling of credit card accounts. By law if your credit card, or credit card information, is stolen and used, your maximum liability is only $50. However, victims must report the misuse immediately to the credit card company.
