PRIVACY POLICY

OUR COMMITMENT TO PRIVACY

We respect the privacy of your information. As a result, we believe that it is important to provide you with this explanation about our online information practices as they relate to your usage of this website.

Unless you specifically give us permission to do so, we will not sell or share or in any other way any personally identifying information collected from you during your use of our website. In this context, “personally identifying information” is information that individually identifies you, such as your name, physical address or e-mail address.

THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

At the time you register on our site, we collect and store your name, address, credit card numbers and other personally identifying information. We need this information to provide goods and services that you request and to let you know of additional goods and services about which you might be interested. We also use this information to customize your experience using our website.

In addition, we automatically gather general statistical information about our website and visitors, such as IP addresses, browsers, pages viewed, number of visitors, goods and services purchased, etc. In doing so, we do not reference you by any personally identifying information. We use this data in the aggregate to learn about our customers and to improve our ability to cater to their needs. We also occasionally provide this statistical information to our third-party partners.

As part of our service, we also use cookies to store and sometimes track information about you. A “cookie” is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Generally, we use cookies to remind us who you are, to give you easier access to repeatedly used account information, to gather statistical information about usage, to research visiting patterns, and to help target advertisements based on user interests. In some instances, our retail partners and advertisers appearing at our site may use their own cookies. Your web browser settings, which you may change at any time, determine if and how a cookie will be accepted. By changing those settings, you can accept all cookies, be notified when a cookie is set, or simply reject all cookies. If you decide to reject all cookies, please be aware that you may be required to re-enter your information more often and certain features of our site may be unavailable to you.

THE WAY WE USE INFORMATION

If you place an order for products or services, we use the information you provide to us to ship your order or, if the products or services are from a retail partner, to inform that retail partner as to the means by which they can ship your order.

In addition, we use your personally identifying information to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze site usage, to improve our content and product offerings and to customize our site’s content, layout, and services. We may also use your information to deliver additional information to you that is intended to target your identified interests. In particular, we may use your e-mail address or mailing address to contact you regarding administrative notices, new product offerings and communications relevant to your use of the website.

We may also use or disclose information to resolve disputes, investigate problems, or enforce the Terms of Use for our website. In addition, we may disclose or access information whenever we believe in good faith that the law requires us to do so.

SECURITY

We employ reasonable and current security methods to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure correct use of information.

Please note that no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we try to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

CHILDREN UNDER 13

Children under the age of 13 are not permitted to use our website. While our website is not intended for children, we have no way of distinguishing the age of individuals who access it. Nevertheless, we neither solicit nor knowingly accept any information from children under the age of 13. If a child has provided us with personally identifying information without parental or guardian consent, the parent or guardian should contact us to remove the information and opt out of promotional opportunities.

THIRD-PARTY PRACTICES

From time to time, we may allow our third-party partners to present advertisements or other offers on our website. You should be aware that the privacy policy of these third-party partners may differ from ours. We encourage you to read that policy before responding to any such advertisement or offer.

CHANGES TO OUR POLICY

We reserve the right to change this privacy policy at any time. If we update this privacy policy, we will place a notice on our website indicating such update, and this privacy policy shall be deemed to be amended accordingly as of the effective date of such update. You are responsible to review the updated privacy policy so that you are aware of our then-current privacy practices.
