CONTROLLING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information unless we provide you with advance notice, except as described below.
The term “outside parties” does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. Examples include providing web site services, fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to Personal Information needed to perform their functions.
We reserve the right to transfer any information, including Personal Information, in the event all, or a portion, of our business or assets are sold or transferred, including in connection with a sale, merger, consolidation, change in control, transfer of assets, reorganization or liquidation of our business.
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. When you place orders or access your personal information, we offer the use of a secure server. All sensitive/credit information you supply is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our databases to be only accessed as stated above.
PRIVATE BROWSING; THIRD PARTY TRACKING
Unless your browser settings are configured to make your online activities and publicly available information about your online activities invisible to usage analytics tools, we do not presently have the capability to omit you from Site usage information we collect to the extent your browser only sends us a “do not track” message and does not otherwise screen you from tracking without any action on our part.
Third parties, other than our vendors (such as our cookie server), do not have authorization from us to track which websites you visited prior and after visiting our website. That said, we cannot control third party tracking and there may be some third-party tracking that occurs without our knowledge or consent.
The Site is not intended for minors. We do not knowingly solicit or collect Personal Information from children under 13. If you are under the age of 13, please DO NOT submit your e-mail address or any other Personal Information to us through the Site. If we learn that we have collected Personal Information of a child under 13 we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.
We encourage parents to go online with their children. Parents should understand the sites their children are visiting, and which sites are appropriate. There are parental control tools available such as browsers and filtering software that prevent children from accessing inappropriate sites.
INFORMATION WE RECEIVE FROM THIRD PARTIES
We may receive information about you, including Personal Information, from third parties, such as persons assisting us in administering or fulfilling a sweepstakes or contest. Also, if you are on another website and you opt-in to receive information from us, that website will forward to us your e-mail address and other information about you so that we may contact you as requested. We may also supplement the information we collect about you through the Site with outside records from third parties in order to enhance our ability to serve you. We may combine the information we receive from these third parties with information we collect through the Site.
LINKS TO THIRD-PARTY SITES
This Site may link you to other sites on the Internet, which are not operated by us and not under our control. These linked sites have separate and independent privacy policies. You acknowledge that we are not responsible or liable for the accuracy, or any other aspect of the content of sites we do not operate or control. Accessing the links to any other sites is at your own risk and subject to the applicable privacy policies and terms and conditions of such websites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these linked sites (including if a specific link does not work).
COOKIES & OTHER SOFTWARE
Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. This usage information may include, but is not limited to, information considered non-personally identifying such as browser type, device type used to access the Site (i.e., computer or mobile device), unique number assigned to identify such device, geographic location, click path taken through the Site, your use of features or applications on the Site, and other publicly available information.
We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You can configure your browser to reject cookies by modifying your browser settings, but if your browser settings do not accept cookies from us, then some functions of the Sites may not operate as intended.
OPT-OUT OR UPDATE INFORMATION YOU HAVE PROVIDED TO US
You can help us maintain the accuracy of your information by notifying us of any changes. If your Personal Information changes (such as physical or email address), contact us by email to email@example.com to update or correct such information.
If you no longer wish to receive our promotional communications, each message will give you the option to “unsubscribe” from receiving further email communications from us at any time. Your option not to receive promotional and marketing material will not preclude us from corresponding with you, by email or otherwise, regarding your existing or past business relationships with us (e.g., any purchase of our products or use of our services, or responses to requests for information you pose to us either through use of a Site or by other means), and will not preclude us from accessing and viewing your personal information in the course of maintaining and improving our Sites, products and services.
If you sign up to receive mobile messaging (e.g., SMS and MMS) offers and communications but later decide you no longer wish to receive them, simply follow the opt-out instructions included in the mobile message.
If you post self-identifying information or other content on or through public areas on our Site, e.g., chats, blog comments, this information is public information and is generally accessible to, and may be collected and used by, others and may result in unsolicited messages or other contact from others. You are encouraged to exercise caution when posting online self-identifying information. You warrant that you have permission to upload any third-party information and you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold us and our agents harmless from and against any claim, liability, cost, and expense arising in connection with your provision of that information.
