WHAT IS PERSONAL INFORMATION?
We define “Personal Information” as your first and last name, your e-mail address, your home or other physical address, including a street name and name of a city or town, your telephone number, your social security number, any payment or financial information, or any other identifier that permits us to contact a natural human person, like you, and/or any information that we maintain that could be used to identify you in combination with any of the identifying information described above.
WHAT INFORMATION ABOUT ME IS COLLECTED AND STORED?
We collect and store information that you enter into the Site or that you provide to our Customer Service Department, including information you use in connection with any User Account you may have with us, and may also include information you provide to our affiliates or vendors in connection with purchases or requests for services from us you make. You understand that it is your choice to provide us with this information. You can choose not to provide such Personal Information, in which case you will not be able to access or use portions of the Site or some of our services. This information is used to provide the products and services that you have ordered or requested, to process and ship orders, to verify validity of requests, to send order and shipping confirmations, and to provide customer service. This information also may be used for our own marketing and internal business purposes, and to contact you about sales, special offers, and new Site features, unless you have opted not to receive promotional communications in connection with this Site.
We also may collect and store information about you that we receive from other sources, to enable us to update and correct the information contained in our database and to provide product recommendations and special offers that we think will interest you. Our Site may also provide you the opportunity to connect your User Account with other social media platforms. When you participate in social features, the information you provide may be public, and may be shared with others in connection with the applicable social media platform privacy policies.
We collect and store certain other information automatically whenever you interact with this Site using cookies, web beacons, log data, and the like. For example, we may collect your IP address, browser information, and reference site domain name when you visit this Site. We also may collect information regarding customer traffic patterns and site usage. This information is used to analyze and improve this Site and to provide users with a fulfilling shopping experience. Note that this information will be treated as Personal Information only if we combine or link it to any of the identifying information above. Otherwise, this information constitutes Aggregate Information.
Please know that most browsers accept cookies automatically, but allow you to disable them. Section 22575 of the California Business & Professions Code requires website and online service operators to disclose whether they honor web browser “Do Not Track” settings. At this time, although no standard has been adopted by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) regarding such practices, and given current industry considerations, we generally do respond to “do not track” signals, which you may initiate through your personal browser or device. We will update our practices and Policy as these standards evolve. For more information about Do Not Track, please visit www.allaboutdnt.org.
We may retain Personal Information for as long as we have a business need for it or as applicable laws, regulations, or government orders require us to retain it. Additionally, the Site and/or our services may enable you (or other users) to save information including information that you have made public or allowed certain users to access or see.
We generally store your Personal Information in the United States. However, we may transfer your Personal Information from the United States to other countries or regions in connection with the above purposes. By providing any Personal Information to us, you consent to such transfer, storage, and processing.
IS PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED FROM CHILDREN?
The Site is not directed at children, and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information directly from users under the age of 13 or from other websites or services directed at children. Consistent with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”), we will not knowingly request or collect Personal Information from any child under age 13 without obtaining the required parental consent. Children can browse the Site without any Personal Information being collected.
