When visiting the our web site, you may provide us with two types of information: personal information necessary for order processing, and Web site use information gathered on a collective basis as you and others browse our Web site. If you use our "Tell a Friend" feature to send product information to someone else, your email address will appear as the sender of the email. Both your email address and the recipient's email address will not be used for any other purpose.
Generally, we use personal information for purposes of processing orders, providing customer service and making available other products to our customers and prospective customers. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our Web site, new products and special offers we think you will find valuable.
We allow you the choice to opt-out of having your information used for purposes not directly related to our site, when we ask for the information. If you do not wish to receive any promotional or marketing e-mails, you may opt-out of receiving those communications by sending an e-mail with the subject line "Unsubscribe" to customer service.
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a Web site, that site's computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each Web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a Web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
As you visit our Web site, the site uses its cookies to differentiate you from other customers. Cookies, in conjunction with our Web server's log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our Web site and which parts of the site are most popular. This helps us gather feedback in order to constantly improve our Web site and better serve our customers. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not generally store any personal information that you provided to us in your cookies.
We may enter into alliances, partnerships or other business arrangements with third parties who may be given access to personal information including your name, address, telephone number and email for the purpose of providing you information regarding products and services that we think will be of interest to you. In connection with alliances, partnerships or arrangements, we may also provide certain information to third parties if we have determined that the information will be used in a responsible manner by a responsible third party. We also use third parties to facilitate our business, including, but not limited to, sending email and processing credit card payments. In connection with these offerings and business operations, our partners and other third parties may have access to your personal information for use in connection with business activities. As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, email, and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions.
