You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests and communicating with you.   
Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like most Web sites, we use "cookies", and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses our Web site.

Do We Share the Information We Receive?   

We don't sell or rent your personal information, never, ever !

Examples include providing Web site services, fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.   
Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores, subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise).   
Our Protection and Protection of Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other agreements;or protect our rights, property, or safety and those of our users, and others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.   

With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties,and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.   

 

How Secure Is Information About Me ?   
Your information is protected during transmission by Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.  

Only the last four digits of your credit card numbers are revealed when confirming an order. Of course, the entire credit card number is transmitted to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.  

It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.  

 

Which Information Can I Access ?   

We give you access to information about your account and your interactions with us for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information.
