1. INFORMATION COLLECTION

(1a) Personal Information
When an account is created, an order is made, or a form is submitted, we collect certain identifiable specifics from you to fulfill your order, contact you, and/or identify you.

In contrast to “Personal Information”, Non-personal includes data that does not identify you; instead, it is general information used to help us improve service, support, functionality, and many other aspects of our website. Information from these technologies may include, without limitation, peak traffic time periods, traffic referrals, traffic/revenue trends, demographics, IP address, browser, domain server, type of computer, web beacons, cookies, viewed pages, and time data.

Non-personal Information is gathered using industry standard technologies, which may include, without limitation, Google Analytics and Yahoo Live Web Insights.

A “cookie” is a small data file that can be placed on your hard drive when you visit certain websites. We use cookies to collect, store and sometimes track information for statistical purposes to improve the services we provide.

3. PROTECTING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

(3a) Security Measures
When it comes to credit card transactions, established third-party banking and process institutions are utilized. Verification and authorizations are transmitted over secure Internet connections using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption. While we take preventative and security measures to secure your Personal Information, there is no absolute method to safeguard against attack. Because of this the Internet cannot be guaranteed as secure and you are hereby agreeing that we are not responsible for any intercepted information and are releasing us from any and all claims arising or related to the use of intercepted information through the Internet. Please keep in mind that no internet, email or other electronic transmission is ever fully secure or error free, so you should take special care in deciding what information you send us in this way.

(3b) Protecting Yourself
It is your responsibility to ensure secrecy of your account information, especially in regards to your User ID and password. Do not share your account information and periodically reset your password to safeguard your information. We advise using passwords that are unrelated to your personal information and that are difficult to guess. In addition, the longer the password and the more diverse of characters used will aid in protecting you from any sort of attempted intruders. Please be as careful as possible when online and make sure to take all necessary precautions to protect your information.

Our Site contains hyperlinks and pointers to Internet sites maintained by third parties. These links are provided for your reference only.
