PRIVACY POLICY

 

We know that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. This notice describes our privacy policy.

 

What Personal Information We Gather?

The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your experience. Here are the types of information we gather.


  • Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. 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, improving our website, and communicating with you. We keep your information for as long as you keep an account with us, or until such time as reasonably required in order to provide you with after sales services.
  • Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many websites, we use “cookies” and we obtain certain types of information when you access our website or advertisements and other content served by or on behalf of us on other websites.
  • Mobile: When you use your mobile devices to access our website, we may receive information about your location and your mobile device. We may use this information to provide you with location-based services, such as advertising, search results, and other personalized content. Most mobile devices allow you to turn off location services.
  • Information from Other Sources: We might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information.

 

What About Cookies?

  • Cookies are unique identifiers that we transfer to your device to enable our systems to recognize your device and to provide personalized features and storage of items in your shopping cart between visits.
  • The Help feature on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons by changing the add-on's settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer. Because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of our essential features, we recommend that you leave them turned on.

 

Do We Share the Information We Receive?

Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below:


  • Third-Party Service Providers: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include sending postal mail and e-mail, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance 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).
  • Protection: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; or protect the rights, property, or safety of us, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Policy.

 

How Secure Is Information About Me?

  • We work to protect the security of your information during transmission and encrypt information you input.
  • 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.

 

What About Third-Party Advertisers and Links to Other Websites?

Our website may include third-party advertising and links to other websites. We do not control these third-party websites, and we encourage you to read the privacy policy of every website you visit.

 

Which Information Can I Access?

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

 

What Choices Do I Have?

  • You can add or update certain information on pages and when you update information, we usually keep a copy of the prior version for our records.
  • If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please let us know. Please, however, note that those notices will still govern your use of our website, and it is your responsibility to review them for changes.
  • The Help feature on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on's settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer. Because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of our essential features, we recommend that you leave them turned on.

 

Notices and Revisions

If you choose to visit our website, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Privacy Policy, including limitations on damages, resolution of disputes, and application of the law. If you have any concern about privacy at our website, please contact us with a thorough description, and we will try to resolve it. Our business changes constantly, and our Privacy Policy will change also. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices, but you should check our website frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Policy applies to all information that we have about you and your account. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.
