  • We wholeheartedly support strong and effective privacy guidelines and practices on the Web and believe that these will enhance everyone’s use of the Web.

 

Collected Information

We collect information about you when you register with us or purchase products from us, from our use of “cookies” and other tracking technology as you access our web site, and when you email us. (A “cookie” is information we place on your computer to help us identify you or your preferences or interests as reflected by your visits to our website.)

 

What do we do with this information?

We use personal information you provide to us — such as your name and address, telephone or fax number, or email address — to fulfill your orders, to contact you with questions or information about your orders, and to provide you with information that you request. We may also use this information and information about your interests and preferences in our continuing efforts to keep our customers and friends informed about new and exciting products, services, and promotions that we offer, which may include mailings, telephone calls, and email mailings. We may employ other companies or individuals to provide certain services to us such as sending email, analyzing customer lists and data, or provide consulting services. These third parties will have access to the information needed to perform their functions, but cannot use that information for any other purpose.

Except for this sharing, we will not intentionally disclose any personal information about you unless we are required to do so by law. We use reasonable precautions to keep your personal information secure and to disclose it only to third parties we believe will use it appropriately. We are not responsible, however, for breaches of security or for any actions of third parties who receive the information. We also link to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy policies of other web sites, and we urge you to examine their policies before disclosing any information.
