The Information We Collect

We may collect and store personally identifiable information, such as your name, e-mail address and phone number to respond to questions, and to process or fill orders or requests. We may use this information to provide goods and services that you request and to let you know of additional goods and services about which you might be interested. We also use this information to customize your experience using our Web site.  We may ask you for personally-identifying information at other times, such as if and when you communicate with us.

 

In addition, we may automatically gather general statistical information about our Sites and Services, and visitors, such as IP addresses, browsers, pages viewed, number of visitors, goods and services purchased and the like, but in doing so we do not reference you by individual name, e-mail address, home address, or telephone number.

 

If you post information or content, such as commenting on content or participating in online forums or communities, or when you interact with our site through social media sites, plug-ins or other applications, depending on your privacy settings, this information may become public on the Internet.  We are unable to prevent or control further use of this information and refer you to the third party sites’ privacy policies and terms of use to learn more about their privacy practices.

 

Data Aggregation & Sharing

We may aggregate and anonymize information you provide to us in such a way as to ensure that you are not identified or identifiable from it.  This data may be used for statistical, analytic, and administrative purposes, including for customizing our web sites, analyzing trends, tailoring products and services, or conducting risk and cost analysis.  We may share anonymized or aggregated data at our discretion, in accordance with applicable laws.

 

Cookies and Tracking Technologies

A cookie is a small, sometimes encrypted text file which is stored on your computer's hard drive (or other device for accessing the Internet) by websites that you visit. We may use cookies and other similar technologies for a variety of purposes and to enhance your online experience, for example, by remembering your log-in status and viewing preferences from a previous use of our site when you return to our site. We may also use the aggregate information from these technologies to research and understand how the Sites and Services are used.

 

We may offer certain features that are only available through the use of tracking technologies.  Temporary cookies are used to enable you to navigate our site and use its features.  These are deleted when you close your browser.  IP addresses are used in conjunction with cookies for the purpose of “remembering” computers or other devices used to access our site. 

Analytical or performance cookies collect anonymous information about how visitors use our websites.  They allow us to analyze information such as the count of visitors to our websites, what search terms our visitors are using, what pages were viewed, and the last page visited.  This information is based on the visitor’s IP address, and we cannot view individual activity tied to a single person.

 

Third Party Links & Advertising

Our Sites and Services may link through to third-party websites, and those processes may involve the placement of third-party cookies on your machine or device.  Please be aware that we do not control these third party websites or any of the content contained on those websites, including the third-party cookies used for these purposes.  Once you have left our Sites and Services, we cannot be responsible for the privacy practices of such other websites. We encourage you to exercise caution and review the privacy practices of these third-party sites prior to accessing or navigating those sites.  The inclusion of links to third party websites in no way constitutes an endorsement by us of such websites’ content, actions, or policies.

 

We may, from time to time, partner with ad networks and other online advertising providers in order to serve ads on behalf of us or other non-affiliated parties on our websites and across the Internet.  These ads may be presented to you based on products and services the advertising providers think are relevant to your interests.  These preferences may be inferred based on information collected about your browsing behavior on our websites and other non-affiliated sites and apps across time. 

 

Do Not Track

Our Sites and Services do not respond to Do Not Track signals communicated by your browser. We do not knowingly track your online activity over time across third party websites when you use, nor do we allow third parties to do so on our site.
