PRIVACY AND SECURITY
WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT FROM YOU? WHY?
Your Personal Information
To use any of our Sites to make purchases or to participate in any of the interactive features you must create a personal profile. Your profile contains the usual purchaser information (such as name, address, phone number) as well as other items that help us to know and serve you better. You can update your profile at any time.
Once you have created a profile, you have the advantage of being able to use the same User Name and Password on any of our Sites.
WE DON’T SHARE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Your detailed personal information is used by us and only us. There are only three exceptions to this policy. First: the credit card processing company requires certain information when you place an order (we don’t retain credit card information). Second: The warehouse and the shipping company require certain information in order to fulfill your purchase. Third: compliance with any applicable laws or court orders.
In plain language, "We don’t share, rent or sell your detail information."
Your Email Address
To create a profile on one of our Sites we require your email address. You may login and edit your profile at any time. Just be sure to follow any of the on-screen instructions.
WHAT ARE COOKIES AND WHY DO WE USE THEM?
Cookies are small text files that your computer stores for you when you visit many websites. Through cookies we are able to improve your experience when you visit any of our websites. Our cookies do not contain any of your private detail information and are not dangerous to your computer. Most computers and/or web browsers will allow you to disable or block cookies but without cookies you may not be able to use our Sites.
HOW DO WE PROTECT INFORMATION WE COLLECT?
We use secure communications and web pages when we collect user detail information and follow good management and technical practices in protecting that information. While the world recognizes that there is no such thing as "perfect" computer security we, nonetheless, are constantly trying to get as close as possible. You should be aware that most security breaches don’t occur at the website. Most occur at the user’s (your) computer. To have reasonable assurance of secure communications with any website you need to have up to date anti-virus and firewall software on your computer.
HOW LONG DO WE KEEP USER INFORMATION?
We currently keep user profiles on our server for an indefinite period of time. This practice may change from time to time, dependent on legal and practical requirements.
THIRD PARTY WEBSITES
This Site may contain links to sister and third party websites. Sister websites are Sites that are owned by us and therefore fall under this policy. On the other hand, we do not own and are not responsible for the privacy, security or content of third party websites. Your use of third party websites is at your own risk. You should check the relevant policies of each site you visit.
