The Way We Use Information

Names, Addresses, and Email Addresses
We use the name, address, and email address information you provide about yourself when placing an order or requesting information to complete that order or fill that request for information. We may also mail or email you periodic information about our business or products, or current special offers. You can opt not to receive these periodic mailings by notifying us at . We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete an order or fill a request for information.
     We use the name, address, and email address information you provide about someone else when placing an order only to ship the product and to confirm delivery. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.

Telephone Numbers
We use the telephone numbers you provide to us when placing an order only if there is a question or problem with that order. We do not use this information for any other purpose, nor share it with outside parties.

Credit/Debit Card Information
The credit card number you submit when placing an order is used only to receive payment for that order. If you have an SSL-compliant browser you can submit your credit card number over a secure connection to ensure that it is not accessible to third parties while in transit. Credit card numbers are never stored intact on our web server.

Gift Card Messages
We offer gift-cards by which you can personalize a product you order for another person. Information you provide to us to create a gift-card is only used for that purpose, and it is only disclosed to the person receiving the gift.

Return Email Addresses
We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

Our Commitment To Data Security

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
