Information We Collect
We collect personal information about you that you provide to us or that we collect through your use of the Services, such as your name, contact information, mailing and shipping addresses, and purchase history. For example, if you email us or call us, we will collect the information you submit to us in your communication. If you choose to make a purchase with us, we (or our third-party processor) will collect your payment card or other purchasing information.
We may combine any information that we collect, including technical information, with the personal information that you choose to provide to us. We may also obtain personal information from third parties and combine it with the personal or technical information that we collect from you.
How We Use Your Information
We, or third parties on our behalf, may use the information we collect for any lawful purpose, including, but not limited to, the following:
- To operate and improve our Services, including to provide better services, products, and opportunities to our customers and visitors to our Site;
- To fulfill your requests and finalize your transactions;
- To notify you about products and services that may be of interest to you;
- To respond to your inquiries;
- For internal business purposes, including analytics and marketing purposes;
- To comply with the law and to maintain the security of our Site;
- As otherwise disclosed at the time of collection or use; and/or
- With your consent.
If we send you a promotional e-mail, you will be given the opportunity to decline receiving similar e-mails in the future. You may opt-out of receiving such promotional messages from us at any time using the “unsubscribe” mechanism included in each such message. Even if you opt out of promotional e-mails, we may continue to send you e-mails related to your transactions or relationship with us.
We use your IP address and other technical information, for example, to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Site. Your IP address is also used to help identify you and your shopping cart. Like most websites, we use a 'cookie' (a small data file which resides on the hard drive of your computer) to maintain certain information from your prior visits to our site. Only information you supply to our Site is stored. This helps us identify you when you revisit our Site and eliminates the need for you to reenter this information. The cookie is also used to keep track of your shopping cart information.
Digital Advertising and Analytics
To better address our products to our customers’ interests, we partner with ad networks and other ad serving providers (“Advertising Providers”) that serve ads on behalf of us and others on non-affiliated platforms and across multiple devices. Some of those ads are personalized, meaning that they are intended to be relevant to you based on information Advertising Providers collect about your use of the Site and other sites or apps over time and across devices. This type of advertising is known as interest-based advertising.
You can visit www.aboutads.info to learn more about interest-based advertising and how to opt-out of this advertising on websites by companies participating in the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) self-regulatory program.
If you delete your cookies or use a different browser or mobile device, you will need to renew your opt-out choice registered through the tool above. Note that electing to opt-out will not stop advertising from appearing in your browser. It may make the ads you see less relevant to your interests.
How We Disclose Your Information
We may disclose your personal information as follows:
- To our affiliates;
- To service providers that help us provide our Site and otherwise operate our business;
- When we believe in good faith that the law requires it, pursuant to a court order, subpoena, warrant, or in response to a government inquiry;
- To protect our rights, security, or safety or those of others, and to prevent unauthorized interference with the Site or Services;
- In connection with a partial or total sale of stock or assets, merger, or any other change of control transaction, including in bankruptcy; and/or
- When we have your consent to do so.
We may share information that has been de-identified or aggregated without limitation.
We occasionally share our customer list with carefully selected firms whose products may be of interest to you. If you would prefer not to receive such offers, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to inform our customer service representatives of your preferences.
Third Party Links
Our Site may also include integrated social media tools or “plug-ins,” such as social networking tools offered by third parties. If you use these tools to share personal information or you otherwise interact with these features on our Site, those companies may collect information about you and may use and share such information in accordance with your account settings, including by sharing such information with the general public. Your interactions with third-party companies and your use of their features are governed by the privacy notices of the companies that provide those features. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy notices of any accounts you create and use.
We have implemented reasonable safeguards to promote the security of the personal information that you provide to us. For example, we use the Secure Socket Layer Protocol to encrypt information that you submit to us via an Internet order.
