1. INFORMATION THE COMPANY COLLECTS FROM YOU
Active information collection
Like many other web sites, we actively collect information from our visitors both by asking specific questions on the Web Site and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e mail. Some of the information that you submit during the registration process or while making a purchase may be personally identifiable (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your name, business name, address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address, etc.). Also, if you place an order, you may be required to provide financial information.
When you visit the Web Site, we will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it to us voluntarily. If you choose to register with the Web Site, during the registration process you will be asked for both personal and demographic information, most of which is required in order to complete the registration. We will inform you which information is optional. If you opt not to register with the Web Site, you still can visit the Web Site but you will not be able to make a purchase.
Passive information collection
As you navigate through a web site, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as navigational data collection. Like most web site operators, we track IP addresses, use both session and persistent cookies, and assign Internet tags. Our system also automatically gathers information about the areas you visit on this Web Site and collects operational information about the technology you use, such as your browser, type of computer, operating systems, Internet service providers and the domain name of the web site from which you linked to our Web Site. In addition, when you view the Web Site, we may store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a cookie or similar file and will help us in many ways. For example, cookies allow us to tailor the Web Site or an advertisement to better match your interests and preferences. Most Internet browsers enable you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions. The Company does not collect personally identifiable information automatically, but we may tie information collected automatically to your previously submitted personally identifiable information. We passively collect information to understand what areas of the Web Site are most popular, which areas may require improvement and what technologies are being used by our visitors. This information helps us to update and improve the Web Site. We also use this information for security purposes, to detect and to block security breaches and to provide you with a safe online environment.
2. HOW THE COMPANY USES AND MAY DISCLOSE INFORMATION OBTAINED THROUGH THE WEB SITE
Except as otherwise stated, we may use information collected via this Web Site to improve the content of our Web Site, to customize the Web Site to your preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have requested it), for our marketing and research purposes, and for any other purpose specified. In addition, we may make full use of all information acquired through this Web Site that is not in personally identifiable form.
If you provide personally identifiable information to the Web Site, we may combine such information with other actively collected information unless we specify otherwise at the point of collection.
We may disclose personally identifiable information you provide via this Web Site to third parties, but only:
(4) to respond to law enforcement requests or where required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations; or
(5) in situations involving threats to the physical safety of any person or as necessary to protect the rights of the Company or its affiliates.
Your contact information (billing, shipping and e-mail addresses) and financial information (credit card number) will be used for the purposes for which you supplied it to us (e.g., registering with the Web Site, processing orders, etc.), to send you related notices or promotional materials and to respond to your comments or requests for information. If you direct comments to us or you request information from us, we may ask you to verify where you are doing business so that we can be assured that the response or information we provide is appropriate for that geographic location. We may also enhance or merge personally identifiable information with data obtained from third parties for the same purposes.
The Company will not give or sell your personally identifiable information to any outside organization for the organization's own use without your consent. The Company may disclose your personal information to the reputable vendors that assist us in processing information or delivering the items that our customers order.
The Company does not otherwise distribute to third parties your personally identifiable information. The Company, however, will have no liability for disclosure of information obtained due to errors in transmission or the unauthorized intervention of third parties.
The Company may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, online traffic patterns and related information to reputable third parties, but these statistics will not include any personally identifying information. The Company also will disclose any information that it is required to disclose by law or by an appropriate government authority.
3. CHOICES YOU HAVE ABOUT HOW THE COMPANY USES YOUR INFORMATION
4. HOW THE COMPANY PROTECTS YOUR INFORMATION
We work hard to protect your personal information. We use both technical and procedural methods to maintain the integrity and security of our databases, including the use of firewalls, encryption and restricted access to data. But you should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever completely secure or error-free.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. If you have access to password-protected features, never share your password with anyone else, notify us promptly if you believe your password security has been breached, and remember to log off of the Web Site before you leave your computer.
