In order to offer and provide customer service, we may use cookies to record session information, such as items added to shopping carts, and to aid in ordering product. For example, we may use cookies to help remind us who you are and to deliver content and services based on your account information. Cookies are simply pieces of information that are sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. The use of cookies is relatively standard and you will likely find them used on most other major Websites. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. If you prefer, you can customize the settings on your browser either to notify you when you receive a cookie or to refuse to accept cookies.  As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through other means.

The Way We Use Collected Information
We use non-identifying information, such as your domain name, and aggregate information on pages consumers access or visit to better design our Website, to help identify customer services issues and internally for marketing purposes.  Personally identifiable information may be used for other purposes including but not limited to site administration and troubleshooting.  Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our Website may access such information.  We will use your information only as permitted by law.

Our Commitment To Data Security
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Accordingly, despite our efforts to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, or to or from our online products or services. You transmit all such information at your own risk. However, once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control.

Our Commitment To Children's Privacy
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our Website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our Website is structured to attract anyone under 13. If a child has provided us with personally identifiable information, a parent/guardian may follow the procedures below to access a child's information and to request the information be deleted from our records. We will make reasonable efforts to delete the child's information from our databases.

How You Can Correct Your Information

To protect your privacy and security, we also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
