How The Information Is Collected:
We collect "personal" information from you when you provide it to us. "Personal" information consists of your name, mailing address, telephone number, billing information and email address. When you purchase a product from us we collect your personal information. If you sign up to receive a newsletter, we will collect your email address. If you utilize any services or take advantage of any special offers made by us or by our suppliers, order fulfillment companies or marketing partners we may collect other personal information about you.
What We Do With Your Information:
Under no circumstances do we rent, trade or share your e-mail address with any other company, except our order fulfillment companies, for their marketing purposes without your consent. We use your personal information for the purpose of processing and keeping you informed of your order and of informing you, from time to time, of information about new features, new services and special offers by us, by our or suppliers, order fulfillment companies or marketing partners. If you take advantage of special offers made by our suppliers or marketing partners we may transfer your personal information to them.
Our order fulfillment companies assist in processing and filling your order. The personal information you provide to us may be given to one or our order fulfillment companies to process and fill your order or to contact you concerning a problem with your order. We, and our order fulfillment companies, partner with one or more credit card companies to assist in processing your payment. Those credit card companies do not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. The information you provide to us is also used for internal purposes, i.e., providing customer support and providing, maintaining, evaluating and improving the services and Website.
We may disclose the personal and non-personal information of our customers to any successor-in-interest of ours, such as a company that acquires us. In that event we go through a business transition, such as an acquisition by another company, a merger with another company or a sale of a portion or all of our assets, your information will likely be among the assets transferred. We may need to disclose personal information when required by law and when we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process.
IP Address and Cookies:
We also collect "non-personal" information from you, i.e., the URL of the previous web site you visited, your ISP, your browser type, your IP address and your operating system. It is difficult to use "nonpersonal" information to personally identify you. This information aids us in merchandising and in developing the site's design and layout. Your IP address may be used to: (1) help diagnose problems with our server; (2) administer the Website; (3) gather broad demographic information; (4) recognize customer traffic patterns; and (5) recognize site usage.
We may collect and share non-personal information about the pages that you visit on the Website. This information, however, is not personally identifiable and we may use selected third parties for marketing and analysis purposes.

How Your Information Is Protected:
Maintaining the security of your personal information is a main concern of ours. The sensitive information that you enter, i.e. a credit card number, billing address, on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We follow the industry's generally accepted standards to protect your personal information submitted to us from unauthorized access or disclosure during transmission and once we receive it. You should be aware, however, that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and, therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We assume no liability for any disclosure of data due to errors in transmission, unauthorized third party access or other acts of third parties, or other acts or omissions.
