Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is your privacy policy?
A: Weatherstrip Special respects the privacy of all its online visitors.
Online Ordering Privacy -- We collect personal information when an order is placed only for the purpose of fulfilling your order. Personal information, including bank account and credit card information, is NOT stored nor retained on any of Weatherstrip Special's servers or its websites. (This makes it impossible for hackers to get this information if they successfully hack this site.) No information collected through Weatherstrip Special's online ordering process is ever sold, rented or given to any party outside of Weatherstrip Special. You will never be contacted by outside marketers or retailers as a result of ordering from Weatherstrip Special.
Online Ordering Security -- We use the Americart Shopping Cart Service for entering your credit card and shipping information. This means that the management of the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption is handled by the experts at Americart. SSL is the industry standard encryption technology used today for secure transmission of sensitive data.

Q:Why are your prices so cheap?
A: The answer is simple. We buy large quantities of weatherstripping and pass the savings on to you, the consumer. We are not an outlet store and the seals we sell are not "seconds".

Q: Do these seals have clips and molded ends?
A: Yes, they have all the clips, molded corners and molded ends where applicable.

Q: What is the name of your business?
A: It's a bit unusual, but the name of our business is "Weatherstrip Special". That's the name on our business license and in the telephone directory.
