Your Personal Information We Collect
The information we gather from customers enables us to personalize and improve our services, and to allow our users to set up a user profile and make purchases via the Website. In general, we use the personal information we collect from you to fulfill your order, send you an order confirmation, send you requested product or service information, respond to customer service requests, improve our Website and marketing efforts, display content based upon your interests and administer your account.
When you register or log in, you supply your email address and a password. This allows us to provide you access to your account every time you visit the Website. Before completing your first purchase, we also ask you for your name, phone number, email address, billing, and shipping addresses. This information, along with your credit card number, is necessary to fulfill your order. This information may be disclosed to specific members of our staff and to select third parties (such as our credit card processor and party or parties shipping products you have ordered) involved in the completion of your transaction and delivery of your order. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our special features, and you may not be able to complete a purchase through the Website.
When you receive an email from us, clicking on it or opening it shall constitute an affirmative opt-in to receive further emails from us. However, you can always opt-out for any reason at any time by following the instructions set forth below.
If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our Website, we will ask you for your friend’s email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the Website. The Company stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email (and tracking the success of our referral program). Your friend may contact us to request that we remove this information from our database.
We may also display personal testimonials of satisfied customers on our Website and/or our social media accounts in addition to other endorsements. With your consent, we may post your testimonial along with your name. If you wish to update or delete your testimonial, you can contact us using the information below.

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
Like most other transactional websites, we use “cookies” to improve your shopping experience and to save you time. Cookies are little tags that are placed onto your computer. We assign a cookie to your computer when you first visit us to enable us to recognize you each time you return.

If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you targeted ads, you may opt-out by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note this does not opt you out of being served to advertise. You will continue to receive generic ads.
Sharing of Personal Information
The Company may be forced to disclose information to comply with a subpoena, court order, administrative, or governmental order, or any other requirement of law, or when the Company, in its sole discretion, deems it necessary to protect its rights or the rights of others, to prevent harm to persons or property, to fight fraud and credit risk, or to enforce or apply the Company’s Website Terms & Conditions.
If the Company is involved in a merger, acquisition or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Website of any change in ownership or uses of your Personal Information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your Personal Information.
The Company endeavors to protect user information to ensure that user account information is kept private.
