COLLECTION AND USE OF INFOR
While users can view our website by browsing anonymously, we collect identifiable personal information (“Personal Information”) about Sites users when they voluntarily provide it in the course of shopping on the Sites, voluntarily registering or otherwise signing up with the Sites, or contacting us via the Sites. Sites users may provide Personal Information for various reasons including, but not limited to, obtaining newsletters, product information, event information, and services, answering surveys, participating in contests, receiving notices of other promotional opportunities, and making purchases. The type of Personal Information that we may collect includes the name, address, phone number, email address and purchase information such as credit or debit card information used to facilitate the sale transactions. We may also use the information that you provide to create a personal customer profile in order to let you know of products or events that may be of interest to you, to streamline future purchases, and for customer service purposes. We may combine Personal Information we collect on the Sites with other information we collect offline about users to improve the structuring of marketing or website content or for other purposes, such as internal research. For information on how to opt-out of allowing us to use your Personal Information for marketing purposes, see the section below.
Non Personal Information
We collect certain aggregate and non-personal information when you visit the Sites. This information does not relate to a single identifiable visitor. It tells us such things as how many users visited the Sites and the pages accessed. Collecting this information helps us tailor our Sites to our visitors.
When you visit the Sites to browse, read or download information, we automatically collect standard computer information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring website addresses. We generally do not link standard computer information to anything that will allow us to identify users unless to enforce compliance with our rules or terms of service or to protect our service, sites, users or others. We also may collect aggregate and non-personal information through “cookies” or “web beacons,” as explained below.
Cookies: Cookies are pieces of information that any website may transfer to your browser that are then stored in your computer system. Cookies are returned to the website that deposited them when a visitor returns to that site. Cookies tell us, for example, whether a user is a first time visitor or has visited the Sites before and what areas of the websites are of greatest interest to the user. The deposit of cookies by the Sites may enhance your online experience by allowing us to save your preferences for your next visit. Our cookies may also measure the general activity on the Sites, which allows us to determine which areas and features are most popular. This information allows us to make improvements to our Sites. Most web browsers are set up to accept cookies. You can, however, reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. If you choose to decline cookies, some of the functionality of the Sites may be impaired. Web Beacons: Web beacons, also known as “clear gifs,” “one-pixel gifs,” “web bugs,” “Internet tags” or “pixel tags,” are small graphic images on a website or in an e-mail that allow us and third parties to monitor the activity on the Sites or to make cookies more effective. Web beacons allow us, or third parties working on our behalf, to gauge and enhance the effectiveness of our marketing by transmitting information about whether you follow links in our e-mails or websites, and by gathering information about the sites you visit before and after visiting our websites. We use log files to store the data that is collected through Web beacons.
Sharing Personal Information
Subject to the following paragraphs and the disclosures discussed in them, we will neither disclose nor sell any information about you to a party unaffiliated with us unless (1) required to do so by law or legal process; (2) required to do so by law enforcement authorities or other government officials; (3) we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm, financial loss or injury to, or interference with, our rights or property or the rights or property of our users or others, or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity; (4) we reasonably believe that you have used information from the Sites in order to commit unlawful acts or acts that may endanger the health and/or safety of the public; and/or (5) we believe the law in good faith requires such disclosure. We may appoint third party service providers to administer and/or operate certain functions or services on our behalf, the proper performance of which may require a transfer of the information submitted by you. The functions or services include, for example, administering the Sites, delivery of products requested or ordered by you, and delivery of marketing or other communications to you about our products, services or special events. Any such transfer shall be subject to confidentiality and security obligations and for the sole purpose of the performance of those functions or services. We may also share your Personal Information with other third parties for joint marketing and promotions of products, services or events that may be of interest to you. Any transfers of Personal Information shall be subject to confidentiality and security obligations and for the sole purpose of the performance of those obligations. You should be aware, however, that even if you opt-out of allowing us to use your information for marketing campaigns, we may still share certain information with third parties to comply with legal obligations. For example, if you have opted out of marketing emails from us, we may have to provide your email address to a third party we jointly market with to comply with your opt-out request.
Protecting your information is of primary concern to us. We store the information that we collect on secure servers and otherwise take reasonable precautions to protect your Personal Information. However, we cannot warrant and do not represent that our level of security meets or exceeds any specific standards. No Internet transmission is 100% secure or error-free, nor is stored data free from vulnerabilities. We cannot guarantee the security of our websites, databases or services, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. We are not responsible for the actions of third parties.
