What information do we collect?
We collect information from you when you register on our site, place an order, subscribe to our mailing list, or respond to a survey.
When ordering or registering on our site, you may be asked to enter your name, email address, street address, phone number, or credit card information. You may, however, visit our site anonymously.
What do we use your information for?
Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or enter, submit, or access your personal information.
We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our Payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those who are authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.
After the payment transaction is complete, we save only the last four digits of your credit card number in our company database. The rest of the number is not saved in our system.
(Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser—if you allow—that enables the sites or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.)
Do we disclose any information to outside parties?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.
