Personal Information We Collect When You Register An Account On Our WebsiteSimple: in order for you to register an account on our website and/or sign up for our email newsletter, we require certain personal information.
Registering an account on our website makes completing a purchase on our website faster and easier on future visits. The creation of an account allows you to quickly select a shipping address from any entered / stored addresses in your online account – rather than having to enter this information again at checkout, view your past order history, and re-order any of your previously purchased items.
Information that you enter during the creation / registration of an account on our site is only used for such purposes.
Personal Information We Collect When You Sign Up For Our Mailing List / NewsletterSimple: if you sign up on our mailing list to receive our email newsletter, we will send you periodic emails. At any time, you can opt out of such communications.
Signing-up for our email newsletter gives us the ability to email you with information about our products, services, and other such marketing and information purposes. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our website, new services, and special offers that we think you will find valuable.
You may notify us at any time if you do not wish to receive these offers by clicking the “Unsubscribe” link located at the bottom of each marketing email that we send.
Personal Information We Collect When You Place An Order On Our WebsiteSimple: in order for us to provide the products and services that you requested by placing an order on our website, including our ability to process your payment and ship your order, we require certain personal information.
When you place an order on our website, we require information that is pertinent for our ability to fulfill your order, including your:
-First and Last Name (so we know how to address you if we have any questions about your order, as well as for shipping labels and payment processing)
-Shipping Address (for delivery of your order)
-Phone Number (for shipping labels and/or to contact you with questions regarding your order)
-Email Address (to contact you with questions regarding your order, and to update you with your order status such as an order confirmation email, an email notifying you that your order has shipped, etc.)
-Billing Address (for payment processing)
-Credit Card Number, Expiration Date, and Security Code (for payment processing)
-IP Address (to assist us in checking if an order is legitimate)
Personal Information We Collect When You Place An “Offline” OrderSimple: in order for us to provide the products and services that you requested by placing a manual, “offline” order, we require the same personal information necessary to complete an online order on our website.
Even if you choose to place an order “offline” (not on our website), we still require certain personal information to be able to fulfill and complete your order. This includes all of the required information needed for an online order (see above). We may use third parties that assist in the completion of your offline order.
Personal Information We Collect When You Contact UsSimple: if you contact us, we collect and retain the content of your message(s), and may collect your IP Address as well.
If you choose to correspond with us through email or our Customer Relationship Management (“CRM”) contact form – located on our Contact Us page – we may retain the content of your messages together with your email address and our responses. Your IP Address will also be collected when contacting us through our CRM contact form.
If you choose to correspond with us through our Live Chat software, we may retain a transcript of our correspondence with you. This transcript will include the date(s), time(s), and your device information (including the web page that you were on, the referring web page, your IP Address, your IP Host Name, your broswer & operating system, and your location).
We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received by mail and telephone.
Product Reviews and Product QuestionsSimple: when you post a product review and/or ask a product question on our website, some of the information that you enter will be able to be viewed by the public on our website.
When you enter a product review on our website, you are required to enter a name (or nickname) and a location, as well as your review of the product. The name and location information that you enter for your product review can be viewed by the public on our website once you submit your review. You have full control over what name you use, and what location you enter, when writing your product review.
You can be as specific (using your real name, and your real city/state/province) or as vague (such as a completely made-up nickname, and something like “planet Earth” as your location) as you choose.
For our records, your email address and IP address are collected with your product review, but your email address and IP address are NOT available to the general public on our website.
Similarly, when you enter a product question on our website, you are required to enter your name, email, and your question about the product. For our records, your IP Address is also collected. The name and product question that you enter will be public on our website if/when we publish your product question. However, the email address that you enter and your IP Address will NOT be public on our website, and we will only use that information to communicate with you regarding your inquiry, if applicable.
Like our product reviews, you can make up a name if you do not want your real name to be publically available on our website. We do not recommend putting personally identifiable information in your question (such as your address, email, phone number, etc.), though we do screen each product question before posting, and make every attempt to either edit or remove such information prior to posting it on our website. We also may choose not to publish your product question, if it contains such information.
Surveys and ContestsSimple: if you choose to participate in a survey and/or contest, we require personal information. Surveys and contests are completely voluntary, and you are never required to participate.
Occasionally, we may offer a survey or contest in which case our site, a third party site that is aggregating the information necessary for the survey or contest, or both, will request information for your entry and participation. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information.
Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as Zip Code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winner(s) and award prize(s). Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
Sharing and Selling InformationSimple: your personal information is only used to the extent that is necessary to process transactions or provide services that you have requested, or when we are legally compelled to disclose your information, or in other uses that protect ourselves or our other users. We do NOT sell or rent your information.
We do not share, sell, lend or lease any of the information that uniquely identify a subscriber (such as email addresses or personal details) with anyone except to the extent it is necessary to process transactions or provide services that you have requested.
Third Party Service Providers may be employed to perform functions on our behalf, such as processing payments, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their respective functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
The Security Of Your InformationSimple: we take steps to ensure that your personal information is protected.
When using our website, including filling out a contact form (“CRM”), initiating a live chat conversation, placing an order, registering for an account, or signing up for our email newsletter, your information is encrypted through the use of Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”).
