What Personal Information Do We Collect?
Information You Provide:
We receive and store information you enter, including when you search for or buy a product, or when you supply information such as your address, phone number or email address. The decision to provide certain information is optional, but should you choose not to provide the requested information then you might not be able to take advantage of some or our entire website features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, improving our website, and communicating with you.
Every computer has an IP (Internet Protocol) address. IP addresses of computers used to visit this site are noted. In addition, we automatically collect other information such as email addresses, browser types, operating systems, and the URL addresses of sites clicked to and from this site.
Information sharing can provide a valuable opportunity to be introduced to new resources and products that are compatible with your interests and needs. With this enhanced experience in mind, we may receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. This may include updated delivery and address information from our shippers or other sources so that we can correct our records and deliver your next purchase or communication more easily. It is important to note that in some cases we must share your personal information with one or more or our partners in order for you to receive their products or services
How Do We Use Your Information?
We use your information to provide you with a more customized shopping experience. As noted above, you may choose to opt out of this customization and shop anonymously.
Occasionally, we might establish a business relationship with other persons or entities whom we believe trustworthy and whom we have asked to confirm that their privacy policies are consistent with ours. These are known as our Preferred Partners. In such cases we might rent, exchange, share and/or cross-reference information, including contact information about you that will enable such persons or entities to contact you regarding products and services that may be of interest to you.
In an effort to provide you with more enjoyable shopping experience, we may combine information you give us online, in our stores or through our catalogs. We may also combine that information with publicly available information and information we receive from or cross-reference with our Preferred Partners and others. We use that combined information to enhance and personalize the shopping experience of you and others with us, to communicate with you about our products and events that may be of interest to you, and for other promotional purposes.
We may contract with companies or persons to provide certain services including credit card processing, direct order fulfilment, shipping, data management, promotional services, etc. We call them our Service Providers. We provide our Service Providers with the information needed for them to perform these services, but they may not use it for other purposes. We also ask our Service Providers to confirm that their privacy practices are consistent with ours.
We may send you special offers from time to time, unless you choose to opt-out of receiving such offers. We will not send you special offers from other companies. Please see the opt-in/opt-out selection at the end of this policy.
If we receive a lawful court order to release account or other personal information then we will comply with the law. We will also release information when necessary to protect the life, safety or property of others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
How Do We Protect the Security of Your Information?
- We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.
- We use encryption to protect your information contained in our customer list.
- We use a firewall to protect against unlawful intrusion.
- We limit access to your information on a need to know basis.
- We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.
- It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
- No system can guarantee absolute security, just as the finest lock cannot guarantee physical security. However, we take every reasonable precaution to assure that your data is secure.
