We value the relationship we have with our customers and we are committed to responsible information handling practices. Your privacy on the Internet is important to us. Because we gather certain types of information to process orders, we want you to understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather, how we use it, and how to correct or change it.
Collection of Information (Personal Data & Aggegated Data)
We gather two types of information about users:
Personal data, provided through voluntary registration.
Aggregated data, which tracks users as a whole.
We collect personal information such as your contact information (name, e-mail address), billing/shipping information (credit card number, shipping address). Credit card numbers are never stored on our system, nor do we have access to that data through our merchant account. When submitting personal information on an online form, we will identify which fields are required in order to fulfill your request.
We request information when you purchase products or services, sign up for a drawing, promotion or survey, contact us with a question or concern or participate in other activities. In addition, when using our Web sites, our servers may collect click-stream information (such as the address (or URL) of the Web site that you came from before visiting our site, which pages you visit on our site, which browser you used to view our site and any search terms you have entered on our site.
Your provision of such additional information is your acknowledgement that you consent to our use of such information to better serve you, our visitor, and others coming to our sites. Except as described below, it is not disclosed to parties in any way that personally identifies you without your prior permission.
Aggregated data, which tracks website user activity as a whole rather than on an individual basis, is gathered through several methods. This tracking data follows website traffic in general, and is not used to identify you personally. Aggregated tracking information helps us to determine which areas of our site users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what you read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you. We may disclose such aggregated information to third parties such as our vendors.
Do you share the information I've provided?
We may need to share personal information with third parties in limited circumstances. For example, we may release personal information to third parties to perform services on our behalf such as; fulfilling our customer’s orders, sending marketing communications on our behalf, delivering packages, servicing products, conducting research or surveys, sending regular mail and e-mail, or processing credit card payments. We do not sell or rent customer information to third parties.
How is information used?
We use the information you provide in order to 1) fulfill requests for products, services or information, 2) provide customer services, 3) administer drawings or promotions, 4) offer new products and services, 5) measure and improve the effectiveness of our Web sites, our marketing efforts, or our services and offers, 6) tailor our online or in-store offerings to your preferences, 7) administer surveys, 8) send marketing communications or 9) other business purposes.
Contests and Drawings
We occasionally offer contests and drawings in which we request certain personal information on a voluntary basis. These contests are conducted in full accordance with United States federal and state laws. The full rules and all information about such contests are clearly posted during the event, including how information gathered will be used.
Our Web server automatically collects the address of the Web site that you came from before visiting our site, which browser you used to view our site and any search terms you have entered on our site.
Our Web site may also use other technologies to track which pages on our Web sites our visitors view. This non-identifiable click-stream data helps us understand how visitors use our Web site and help to identify areas of improvement
Information Security and Privacy
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
Children and Privacy
We request that children under 17 do not submit or post any information to the site without parent’s or guardian's consent. We will not request or knowingly collect from a child any information online that can be traced to the child, such as an e-mail address, name, or information about the child's family. Unless a parent or guardian consents to such use in advance, we will not knowingly use information that a child provides to us for any marketing, selling or promotional purposes.
