CUSTOMER ONLINE PRIVACY
We collect the following pieces of information:
When you subscribe to any of our email communications or provide an email address during the checkout process, your email address will be stored on a third-party server. You may unsubscribe from email communications any time; however, your email address will still remain in our system. You can unsubscribe here.
We monitor our web logs by employing the use of “stat counters.” These assist us in determining possible page incompatibilities, dead links, and the most useful pages to our customers, and they help us create richer content. We do not store information about you, but rather we track information on the performance of our website, and the only identifiable information recorded is your computer’s IP address.
When you interact with our system, we store cookies in your browser that allow us to associate carts and checkouts with your shopping sessions. This information is used to improve your online shopping experience and personalize the content for the emails you receive from us, and it may impact the advertisements you see when visiting other websites. These cookies do not collect your personal information such as name, address, or billing information. You can opt-out of the advertisements by visiting Google’s Ad Settings or visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page.
