What kinds of information do we collect and how do we use it?:
We collect and store information that you enter into this website or that you provide to our Customer Service Department. For example, when you create an account, place an order or subscribe to our newsletter, we may collect and store some or all of the following information that you provide to us: your name, billing address, shipping address, email address and telephone number. This information is used to provide the products and services that you have ordered or requested, to process and ship orders, to send order and shipping confirmations and to provide customer service. This information also may be used to contact you about sales, promotions, special offers and site features, unless you have opted not to receive promotional communications in connection with this website. We collect and store certain other information automatically whenever you interact with this website. For example, we collect your IP address, browser information and reference site domain name every time you visit this website. We also collect information regarding customer traffic patterns and site usage. This information is used to analyze and improve this website and to provide our customers with a fulfilling shopping experience.
We do not share with others any personal information that you provide to us through our website or through our Customer Service Department, except with your consent or as otherwise described in this Policy. In order to service you properly, we must share certain personal information with our trusted third party service partners, but we do so only after such partners have committed to keeping your personal information confidential and secure. Further, we authorize these partners to use such personal information only in connection with the services they perform on our behalf. Examples of the services such partners may perform on our behalf include payment processing and authorization, fraud protection and credit risk reduction, product customization, order fulfillment and shipping, website evaluation, market research and data analysis, data cleansing and marketing and promotions management.
In the unlikely event of a sale or merger of the Company or any of our businesses, our customers’ personal information and other information we have collected as described in this Policy may be among the transferred business assets. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. Non-personally identifiable website visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising or other uses.
We implement a variety of physical, electronic, contractual and managerial safeguards and security measures to maintain the safety and privacy of your personal information when you access your personal information and/or place an order on the website. However, no security system is impenetrable and we cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that data transmissions won’t be unlawfully intercepted or accessed while being transmitted to the website. We make no warranty regarding the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to provide you with the safest, most secure shopping experience possible. SSL technology enables encryption of sensitive information, including credit card details, during your online transactions with our payment gateway provider. After a transaction, your credit card information will not be stored on our servers. To make sure you are accessing the secure server before you submit your credit card information, look at the lower left-hand corner of your browser. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending upon your browser), then SSL is active. To double-check for security, look at the URL or location line of your browser. If you have accessed a secure server, the first characters of the address in that line should change from “http” to “https.”
