Security & Privacy Policy



Security
We provide a secure shopping environment. We appreciate your business and we respect and guard your privacy. In order to complete your order or to satisfy your request for information, you will be asked to provide certain personal information. Safeguards are in place to ensure the security and privacy of your information. These safeguards are detailed below.

"Cookies" are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. Our cookies do not contain any personal identification information, but they do enable us to provide features such as welcoming you back to our site using your name and storing items in your shopping cart between visits. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser to prevent that. Even without a cookie, you can still use most of the features in our store, including placing items in your shopping cart and purchasing them.

You and your information are secure while shopping online. We use Paypal e-commerce software to operate our store transactions and do not store your sensitive financial information on our site. The information you provide to Paypal are also accessible to us through their secure server. The Paypal system does store a Cookie containing your name and address information so that your browser will remember this information if you become disconnected from the Internet or if you should come back to our site for future purchases. You may disable this function by setting your browser to not accept cookies. Click to review Paypal's Privacy Policy.

Data Use

The information we collect is never used personally, rather it's used to improve our Web site (in the case of customer feedback), to mail out our opt-in newsletter or to notify consumers about updates to our Web site (in the case of subscription forms), and for special notices to our customers who purchase one or more products (in the case of successful orders through the Order Form).

We aggregate statistics about our online sales, traffic patterns, and related site information to reputable third-party vendors. We may share these with related third parties, but these general statistics never include any information about you (or anyone else) personally. We never provide your personal data to any third party. As a strict policy, we do not sell, trade, rent or otherwise share your e-mail address with any other company or third party.

Communications

We want to communicate with you only if you want to hear from us. If you prefer not to receive information from us, either through e-mail, postal mail or by phone, please let us know by completing our Contact Form. Or, in the case of newsletters, simply click on the "Unsubscribe" link at the bottom of each mailing.

By purchasing online, you may receive periodic mailings from us with information on new products and services or upcoming events. Again, you can unsubscribe from these at any time.

IP Addresses

We record IP addresses as a demographic part of our aggregate statistics (mentioned above). But we do not link this to your shopper information with the following exception: when you place an order using our online checkout process, we may correlate your IP address with your order in cases of fraudulent credit card use. In the case of a suspected fraudulent order, we may share this with the financial institution that issued the credit card with which an order was placed. We may also share this IP information with law enforcement authorities, if we determine use of the credit card was fraudulent. We also use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server computers, and to administer our Web site. Your IP address is used to help identify your browser and your shopping cart, but we do not know that "you" are "you."
