Information We Collect
In order to better provide you with Website services, we collect information about our users in two ways, either voluntarily by direct user input or automatically. Information you voluntarily submit may include, among other things, your name, email address, phone number, or other information that you enter when you place an order, set up an account, or register with the Website. Information we gather automatically may include, among other things, how you use the Website, information about your browser, and sites from which you access our Website. Information on managing and changing your information preferences is described below.
You always have the option not to provide information we request. If you choose not to provide the information, you can still visit most of the Website, but you may be unable to access certain options and services. If you do provide information through the Website, you agree to provide only true, accurate, current and complete information. We may also supplement the data you provide to us with data from data append services such as public or social graph data in order to better serve you with content or promotions.
Personally Identifiable Information and Aggregate Information
Personally Identifiable Information (PII) may include information such as your first and last name, email address, mailing address (including zip code), employer, job title and department, telephone numbers, and other identifying information, and in the EU, your IP address.
Aggregate information does not by itself identify a specific individual. We may gather certain information about you based upon where you visit on our Website and what other sites may have directed you to us. This information, which is collected in a variety of different ways, is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Website’s Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) that points to the site you just came from.
We do not collect any PII about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. However, you may be required to provide certain PII to us when you elect to use certain products or services available on the Website. These may include: (a) registering for an account on our Website; (b) sending us information; (c) submitting a form or transmitting other information by telephone or letter; or (e) submitting information when making payments through our Website. When you make a payment through our Website, you may be connected with a third party processor and agree to sharing information you provide with that processor to the extent necessary to process your transaction.
You should also be aware that if you voluntarily disclose PII to third parties, for example by posting in public forums or in public comments, that information, along with any information disclosed in your communication, can be collected and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages (including unwanted spam messages) from third parties. Such activities are beyond our control and this Policy does not apply to such information.

Essential Cookies are used for specific purposes that are essential to your secure use and navigation of the Website. Without them, the Website may not perform properly. These cookies collect and use information such as your server preferences, single-session data and corresponding identifier, web beacons and log files (detailed below), and other credential-related information.

We may use web beacons (invisible images) to recognize users, assess traffic patterns, identify preferred content, and measure site engagement, count email messages that have been opened, and collect data collected by your browser.

The Website’s web and ad servers may log information about IP addresses, browsers, and URL requests. This information is always provided by a user’s browser and is automatically logged by most Websites. These logs are stored in a secure location and used in our internal analysis to traffic patterns within our Website.
We may use an outside advertising partner to display banner advertisements on our Website. As part of their service, they may place a separate cookie on your computer or device. We will not provide any third-party advertising partners with any of your PII or information about your purchases. We and our third party ad server may collect and use Aggregate Information about you, such as your IP address, browser type, the server your computer is logged onto, the area code and zip code associated with your server and whether you responded to a particular ad.
Use and Release of Information
Our purpose in collecting, using, and sharing user information is primarily to enhance your experience on the Website.
We may provide you with interactive communications, such as notifications to your email address, but only if we have your express consent to receive such communications.
We will not use your information without a valid legal basis to do so. We will not sell, trade, or rent your PII to others. We do provide some of our product and service offerings through contractual arrangements made with affiliates, service providers, partners and other third parties (“Service Partners”). We and our Service Partners may need to use some PII in order to perform tasks between our respective sites, or to deliver products or services to you. For example, your credit card information must be released to the card-issuing bank to confirm payment for products and services through the Website.
You may be requested to voluntarily provide certain user information during your use of the Website. If you choose to do so, that information may be shared with business partners and vendors providing hosting and other services for us.
We use third parties to provide credit card processing, email service providers and hosting services on the Website. When you sign up for such services, we will share your user information only as necessary for the third party to provide that service. These third parties are prohibited from using your user information for any other purpose. With respect to credit card processing, we do not collect, store, or process any credit card information. If you do not want your information to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer of your information by not using that particular service.
Occasionally we may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide PII to the appropriate governmental authorities. In such cases, we will disclose PII upon receipt of a court order, subpoena, or to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation. We fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities. We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we in good faith believe to be unlawful and to disclose information necessary to protect and defend the rights or property of the Company.
We may also provide Aggregate Information about our customers’ sales, traffic patterns, and related Website information to third party advertisers, but these statistics do not include any Personally Identifiable Information.

We believe you should have the ability to access and edit the Personally Identifiable Information (PII) that you have provided to us. You may change any of your PII in your online account, if any, at any time by linking to your account in accordance with instructions posted elsewhere on this Website. You may also change your PII by contacting us at the contact information at the end of this policy.
We encourage you to promptly update your PII if it changes. You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed.
You acknowledge that you are 18 years of age or older. If you are less than 18 years old, please do not send any user information to us--including information such as your name, address, or e-mail address.
We do not knowingly collect (nor do we wish to collect) any personally identifiable information or other user information from children under the age of 16. We encourage parents or guardians to contact us at the contact information above, and in the event that we learn we have collected any personal information from a child under the age of 16, we will delete that information from our database and terminate the corresponding account, if any. We encourage minors to discuss the Website with a parent or guardian.
Security of Your PII
At our Website you can be assured that your PII is secure, consistent with current industry standards. We strive to take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of your PII. For example:
- We work hard to ensure that the data we collect is reliable, accurate, complete and current. We encrypt all PII, in order to prevent unauthorized parties from viewing such information when it is transmitted to us. We also only keep collected information only for as long as reasonably necessary or as otherwise authorized by law and use it only for the purposes for which it was collected or to comply with any applicable legal or ethical reporting or document retention requirements.
- We limit access to PII only to specific employees, contractors and agents who have a reasonable need to come into contact with your information. For example, we may provide members of our technical support team with limited access to your account in order to allow them to troubleshoot problems you may be having with the Website.
- Additionally, we also employ a number of physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect PII. Our secure servers and our data centers are protected by industry-standard encryption, and our servers reside behind firewalls and employ high-level password protection.
- Finally, access by you to your account, if any, is available through a password and unique customer ID selected by you. This password is encrypted. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone.
In order to most effectively serve you, payment transactions are handled by established third parties. They receive the information needed to verify and authorize your credit card or other payment information and to process payment.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your PII, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations inherent to the Internet which are beyond our control; and (b) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this Website cannot be guaranteed.
Your user information may be transferred to other countries through your use of this Website. If you access or use the Website outside the United States, your user information will be transferred to servers in the United States.
