We collect two types of information on this Web Site: Personal Information and Non-Personal Information.
We collect and store Personal Information that you provide to us when using this Web Site or that you provide to our Customer Service Department when communicating offline or through e-mail. For example, when you open an account or place an order, we collect and store some or all of the Personal Information that you provide. This Personal 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 Personal Information also may be used to contact you about sales, special offers and new site features, unless you have opted not to receive promotional communications in connection with this Web Site.
We also may collect and store information about you that we receive from other sources, to enable us to update and correct the Personal Information contained in our database and to provide product recommendations and special offers that we think will interest you.
"Non-Personal Information" is information we collect on this Web Site that by itself cannot be used to identify or contact you, such as demographic information and other anonymous statistical data relating to the use of this Web Site. For example, we collect and store certain Non-Personal Information automatically whenever you interact with this Web Site, including your IP address, browser information and reference site domain name. We also collect Non-Personal Information regarding customer traffic patterns and site usage. This information is used to analyze and improve this Web Site and to provide our customers with a fulfilling shopping experience.
Also, like many Web Sites, we use "cookies", which are files stored on your computer's hard drive by your browser. Cookies help us to identify account holders and to optimize their shopping experience. Cookies also allow us to hold selections in a shopping cart when a user leaves this Web Site without checking out. Most browsers accept cookies automatically but allow you to disable them. We recommend that you leave cookies "turned on" so that we can offer you a better shopping experience on this Web Site.
Is Information Collected From Children?
We do not sell or ship any items ordered through this Web Site directly to anyone who we know to be under the age of 18, nor do we collect any personal information from anyone who we know to be under the age of 18. Because it is important to protect the privacy of children on the Internet, if you are under the age of 18, you should use this Web Site only with the involvement of a parent or guardian and should not submit any personal information to us.
With Whom Do You Share Information?
We engage third parties to perform services in connection with the operation of our business. Examples of these services include payment processing and authorization, fraud protection and credit risk reduction, product customization, order fulfillment and shipping, marketing and promotional material distribution, Web site evaluation, data analysis and, where applicable, data cleansing. We provide Personal Information to these third parties, but we authorize them to use this information only in connection with the services they perform.
We may release Personal Information if we believe in good faith that: the law or legal process requires it; we have received a valid administrative request from a law enforcement agency.
We may share Non-Personal Information with our marketing partners, advertisers and others from time to time. Examples of Non-Personal Information that may be shared include the number of users who visited this Web Site during a specific time period or purchased a specific product through this Web Site. This information generally is shared in an aggregated form.
As with any business, it is possible that as our business develops, we might sell or buy online stores or other assets. In such transactions, information about customers often is among the transferred assets.
What Steps Are Taken To Keep Personal Information Secure?
We use various security measures, including Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology, to protect personal information that we collect. If you place an order through this Web Site, you will be asked to set up an account and provide an email address and password. You must provide an appropriate email address and password in order to access account information. In order to help protect your personal information further, you should be careful about providing your password to others.
Although we exercise care to protect your Personal Information, we remind you that there is always some risk involved in transferring data over the Internet, particularly if you send information to us via an unsecured means, such as an email.
