Personal information is information that is unique to you (such as your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number). We do not collect or retain your credit card information. We only collect personal information from you to offer you our service. Because protecting your information is important to us, we do not sell any personal information to third parties. This information is only available to certain employees who have a need to it in the execution of their job.
We may use independent contractors to provide services on our behalf. For example, we may use an e-commerce provider to handle your order. Such third parties may have access to your personal information in the course of providing services on our behalf. Any personal information that we provide to such third parties is protected under a confidentiality agreement. Such third parties will take commercially reasonable measures to keep your personal information safe, private and secure. Independent contractors who service our technical hardware and software requirements have no possible access to this information.
Information We Automatically Collect
We automatically collect and store: the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet; the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using; the browser software you use and your operating system; the date and time you access our sites; and the Internet address of the site from which you linked directly to our sites.
We use this information only as anonymous aggregate data to determine the number of visitors to different sections of our sites, to ensure the sites are working properly, and to help us make our sites more useful. We do not use it to track or record information about individuals. Generally, we delete this information after one year.
When you use our services as a registered user, we utilize cookies to store information about your visits to make your revisits more efficient for you and us. It is necessary to place the cookie on your computer’s hard drive in order for us to do this. This is a common practice used by most websites. We do not sell or give this information to any outside parties. A “cookie” is a small text file that a Web site can place on your computer’s hard drive in order, for example, to collect information about your activities on the site or to make it possible for you to use an online “shopping cart” to keep track of items you wish to purchase. The cookie transmits this information back to the Web site’s computer which, generally speaking, is the only computer that can read it. Many consumers do not know that “cookies” are being placed on their computers when they visit Web sites. If you want to know when this happens, or to prevent it from happening, you can set your browser to warn you when a Web site attempts to place a “cookie” on your computer.
Protecting your information is very important to us, and we use commercially reasonable measures to provide secure transmission of your personal information to us. You should be aware that there is a level of risk involved in transmitting information over the Internet. As a result, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of the information that is transmitted over the Internet, and that you do so at your own risk.
