By registering with or using this Site, you explicitly accept, without limitation or qualification, the collection, use and transfer of the Personally Identifiable Information (as we define it below) provided by you in the manner described in this Policy. Please read this Policy carefully as it affects your rights and liabilities under law. If you disagree with the way we collect and process Personally Identifiable Information collected on the Site, please do not use it.
In order to better provide you with content, and access to products, and services, we collect two types of information: Personally Identifiable Information, which is information that can be used to identify you, or any other individual to whom the information may relate, personally (together “Personally Identifiable Information”) and non-personally identifiable information like demographic and behavioral information. Sometimes we collect combinations of all these types of information. Our primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide an enjoyable and customized experience while using our Site.
Personally Identifiable Information. Some examples of Personally Identifiable Information that we collect on our Site are:
- Your name
- Email address
- Phone number
- Date of Birth
Demographic information is information that is not unique to you in the sense that it refers to selected population characteristics, such as your ZIP code or postal code.
We also collect behavioral information regarding how you use our Site, information about your computer hardware and software including your IP address, geolocation, browser and operating system type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is necessary for, among other things, analyzing the use of resources, serving up advertisements, providing promotional offers, troubleshooting problems, preventing fraud, and improving our services.
How We Use the Information We Collect
We may use the information we collect from you, including any Personally Identifiable Information you provide, to:
- complete a transaction related to a purchase of products offered for sale through the Site;
- provide you with information about us;
- enhance or update the Site;
- review your account to determine whether other products or services we provide may be of interest to you;
- conduct another transaction you request;
- compile demographic statistics about our users;
- make a record of your visit and log your IP address, the date and time of your visit to the Site, the pages accessed and any documents downloaded, and the type of browser used;
- provide you with information about products or services;
- give you the opportunity to take part in sweepstakes, contests, marketing and other promotional offers; and/or
- use in connection with business-related matters.
We may also on occasion combine information about you that we have with information we obtain from other parties to enhance our ability to market to you those products or services that may be of interest to you.
Sharing With Third Parties
We may also share your non-personally identifiable information, and/or Personally Identifiable Information, with third-parties who provide: (i) services to us, our customers and/or visitors to our Site, (ii) marketing or advertising, and (iii) sweepstakes, contests and other promotional offers. These other companies may be supplied with or have access to your Personally Identifiable Information for the sole purpose of providing these services to us or the offer or advertisement to you.
Though we will make every effort to preserve user privacy, pursuant to the terms of this Policy, we also may need to disclose Personally Identifiable Information if legally required to do so, or at our discretion pursuant to a request from a governmental entity or if we believe in good faith – after considering your privacy interests and other factors – that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process; (b) protect our rights or property of our affiliated companies; (c) prevent a crime or protect national security; or (d) protect the personal safety of users or the public. Because the company is a US company and information collected on our Site is stored in whole or in part in the United States, your information is subject to U.S. law.
Examples of How We Use Collected Information

We may use information collected for promotional purposes, and to use such information to enhance the operation of our Site and administer our systems.
Demographic data also may be collected at our Site through the use of third-party advertising servers, content servers, or website analysis agents who provide us with the zip code and area code associated with a visitor’s server, along with pages viewed on our Site. We may review the actions of the visitors of our Site on an aggregate basis to determine customers’ preferences. We also may conduct research on our visitors’ demographics, interests, and pages viewed based on the information collected in connection with use of our Site. We may use this data to tailor the visitor’s experience at our Site, to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze Site usage, to improve our product offerings, service offerings, and to customize the content, layout, and/or services provided on our Site. We may, for example, receive reports from third-party ad servers, content servers, or web site analysis agents that tell us how many ads were presented and clicked upon or what content was served or viewed.
B. Online Surveys and Polling
We may ask some of our customers to voluntarily complete surveys, which may be collected by an independent third-party. If you do not wish to participate in a survey, simply decline to participate when asked.

We do not share Personally Identifiable Information with these third parties, but ad network providers, the advertisers, the sponsors, and/or analytics service providers may set and access their own cookies, pixel tags and similar technologies on your device and they may otherwise collect or have access to information about you, including information about your use of the Site.

Additionally, many network advertising programs allow you to view and manage the interest categories they have compiled from your online browsing activities. These interest categories help determine the types of targeted advertisements you may receive.
