Please realize we may utilize accumulated non-identifying and aggregate information (statistics) to better design and manage our website, and to possibly share with possible advertisers.
For example: we may share with an advertiser what products or area of the website appear to be most popular and have the best "traffic" at a given time. Even in such cases, there would never be any disclosure of anything potentially identifiable regarding the individuals making up the "traffic".
Finally, rest assured we will never use or share any personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to that which is outlined above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we employ traditional physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
Additionally, and one of the greatest concerns for those shopping online, is the safety of personal information and especially credit card information. This site utilizes several procedures to safeguard its transactions, including:
- Not storing supplied card information online.
- Such information that IS stored is only maintained long enough to complete the transaction and then deleted. (The safest data is that which does not exist!)
You may access most aspects of your collected and maintained personally identifiable information by simply logging into your account and then choosing "My Account" from the menu at the top. Once there, you may update your personal account information as well as changing subscription / contact preferences.
Account deletion or removal requests, however, must be made by contacting us directly.
To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making account corrections.
