What kind of information do we collect?
In order to better provide you with various Products and services on the Site, we may collect three types of information, namely (1) Personal-Information: (2) General Information and (3) Demographic Information. Our primary goal in collecting such information is to provide an efficient and customized experience while using the Site. We collect these three types of information in the ways described below.
Personal Information (Personal Information) is personally identifiable and it therefore lets us know the specifics of who you are. Personal Information is requested and collected when you purchase Products or respond to a survey posted on the Site. For example, Personal Information includes your name, billing address, shipping address, phone number, fax number, email address, credit/debit card or other payment information. Personal Information is used to fill your orders and better provide you with personalized services.
General Information is information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. General Information is based upon where you shop on the Site in several ways. For example, General Information may include the Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) of the Web site you just came from, the URL of the site you next go to, what browser you are using and the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address of the computer you use. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web. An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (“TCP/IP”) network, such as the World Wide Web. It is common practice for Web sites on the Internet to record URLs and IP addresses.
Demographic Information is anonymous information, such as age/date of birth, gender, geographic area, hobbies, interests, and favorites. Demographic information is considered Personal Information only when it is linked to information about a specific user.
You can choose not to provide any item of information but, if you do so, you may not be able to take full advantage of the features of the Site.
In the event that we employ a third-party-advertising company to display advertisements on the Site, please be aware that these advertisements may contain cookies and that any information gathered through such cookies is collected by the third-party-advertising company, not us. We have no access to or control over these cookies or the information contained within them, nor can we accept responsibility for the use made of such information. You should contact these advertisers directly if you have any questions about their use of the information that they collect.
If you wish to disable cookies, clicking on the “help” button on the toolbar of most Web browsers will enable you to find out how to do so. However, if you set your browser to disable cookies, you may not be able to take advantage of all the features of the Site.
How do we use personal information?
We use Personal Information for any of the following purposes: (1) to process an order you place with us for the Products through the Site; (2) to provide customer service and make available Products and services to our customers and (3) to send e-mail or other correspondence.
Collection of Information on the Site
When you order Products and/or services through the Site, we will collect and maintain Personal Information such as a valid credit card number, expiration date and security code, in addition to the name, mailing and billing address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address, product selection, order number, referring URL, IP address and the page you bought from. We collect this information, as disclosed in this Private Policy, in order to fill your order, to communicate with you about your order and to send you promotional materials.

We may require additional verifications or information before accepting any order. All financial information is transmitted by SSL protocol and maintained on a secure server.
If you wish to receive customer service, you will need to provide your name, mailing and billing address, phone number, fax number and e-mail address.
E-mail Correspondence and Other Communication
We may respond to e-mail correspondence or other communications if such correspondence or communication includes a return address. Because a return address is Personal Information, we protect the privacy of the sender by limiting access to these messages. For quality control purposes, messages we receive may be kept for a period of time. In certain cases hard copies; are kept on file. However, such information is maintained in a secure location and no information from messages received will be used for marketing purposes.
In addition to the uses specified above, we may also use Personal Information to notify you about important changes to the Site or about new Products, services and special offers we think you will find valuable.
If you do not want us to send you e-mail, regular mail, or other messages about our Products and services, you may notify us at any time by emailing us at email@example.com. In the body of the e-mail, please include your name and address and the list or lists from which you would like your Personal Information to be removed.
We take all reasonable precautions to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of Personal Information. We also have implemented all reasonable security measures in an effort to protect Personal Information under our control against loss, misuse or alteration. Here are some examples of the ways we safeguard Personal Information: (1) Personal Information is stored in secure operating environments that are not accessible to the public; access to Personal Information is limited to employees who need it to provide you with our Products or services; (2) the Site uses industry-standard technology (e.g. encryption) to prevent unauthorized electronic access to sensitive financial information such as credit card numbers; and (3) we take all reasonable steps to ensure that vendors to whom we supply Personal Information – for such purposes as sending e-mail announcements on our behalf – provide sufficient protection of such Personal Information.
Keep in mind, however, that the Internet is not a secure system. You should be cautious about the information you disclose while online.
