WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT FROM YOU?  WHY?

To make a purchase through the Site, we require you to supply us with your first and last name, home or other physical address, including your street name and address and name of your city or town, your telephone number or other "real world" personal contact information.  If you supply us with your personal contact information, you may later access it, update it, modify it and delete any inaccuracies.  Please note, we generally keep a copy of the previous personal contact information for our records.  We aim to keep our information about you as accurate as possible.  If you would like to review or change the details you have supplied us with, you may do so at any time by accessing your account through the My Account link located at the top of each page on the Site.  You may also choose simply not to provide your personal contact information at the point of collection; however, you will not be able to purchase products through the Site.
We use this information to complete, support and analyze your purchases, to facilitate and improve your use of the Site, to communicate with you, for internal purposes and to comply with any requirements of law.  This information may be disclosed to our staff and to third parties involved in the completion of your transaction, the delivery of your order or the analysis and support of your use of the Site.  We do not sell and will not divulge your personal contact information to third parties other than as specified in this Privacy and Security Policy without your permission unless we are legally entitled or obliged to do so (for example, if required to do so by Court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime).

We use this information to complete, support and analyze your purchases from us, to facilitate and improve your use of the Site, to communicate with you, and to comply with any requirements of law.  We also use this information to respond to any questions you might have and to provide you with information about specials offered through the Site (only if you have selected this service on the Account Login page).  This information may be disclosed to our staff and to third parties involved in the completion of your transaction, the delivery of your order or the analysis and support of your use of the Site.  We do not sell and will not divulge your email address to third parties other than as specified in this Privacy and Security Policy without your permission unless we are legally entitled to obliged to do so (for example, if required to do so by Court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime). 
 

 

WHEN AND WHY WE MIGHT DISCLOSE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We may disclose your information to our staff and to third parties involved in the completion of your transaction, the delivery of your order, and the analysis and support of your use of the Site.  We may disclose your information if necessary to protect our legal rights, if the information relates to actual or threatened harmful conduct, or we have good faith belief that such action is necessary to (1) conform to the requirements of law or comply with governmental orders, court orders, or legal process served on us or (2) to protect and defend our property or other rights, the users of the Site or the public.  This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk protection.  If we should ever file for bankruptcy, are part of a reorganization, sell our assets or merge with another company, we may sell the information you provide to us through the Site to a third party or share your personal information with the third party or company we merge with.
 

 

WHAT ARE COOKIES?  WHY DO WE USE THEM? 

Cookies are very tiny text files that are stored on your computer when you visit certain web pages that record your preferences.  We use cookies to provide you with the best level of service by keeping track of what you have in your shopping cart, remembering you when you return to our store and using them to help us show you advertisements which are relevant to your interests.  They cannot harm your computer and they do not contain any personal or private information.  You must accept cookies to shop through the Site.  You can erase or block cookies from your computer if you want to (your help screen or manual should tell you how to do this), but the Site may not work correctly or at all if you set your browser not to accept cookies.
 

 

HOW DO WE PROTECT INFORMATION WE COLLECT? 

We offer secure web pages to collect certain kinds of user information and we store certain kinds of data in encrypted form.  We follow reasonable technical and management practices to help protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of data stored on our system.  While no computer system is completely secure, we believe the measures implemented by our Site reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved.  Our servers use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and encryption technology that works with Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and AOL's browser, with the objective that only we can read a customer's personal information.  We employ physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of any personal contact information.
 

 

HOW LONG DO WE KEEP USER INFORMATION? 

We generally keep user data on our server or in our archives for as long as we reasonably need it (for instance for taxation or insurance purposes or in case orders may give rise to claims).  We may alter this practice according to changing requirements.  For example, we may delete some data if needed to free up storage space.  We may keep other data for longer periods if the law requires it.  In addition, information posted in a public forum could stay in the public domain indefinitely.
