YOUR PERSONAL DATA
THE INFORMATION WE GATHER
At various times you may contribute your personal data to us. For example, in order to process a request or inquiry you may make concerning a product or transaction, we need to know all or some of the following: your full name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and, in the case of a customer placing an order, a method of payment. You may also contribute personal data to us at other times, such as when registering for our newsletter.
HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA
Your personal information is not shared with third parties, except: 1) in the case of special promotions by us, or one of our partners, about which you’ve requested to be notified; 2) where a third party performs services on our behalf and has agreed to keep such information confidential (such as the processing of your credit card payment); and 3) our Affiliates, but only for the purpose of performing this Agreement.
In the event that we or the site are acquired by a third party, your personal information may be transferred to any such acquiror.
As a member of the site, you will receive our notices from time to time, which is an integral part of the service we provide.
Surveys are another method by which we gather information about our users. From time to time, we request users’ input in order to evaluate potential features and services. The decision to answer a survey is completely yours. We use information gathered from surveys to improve our services.
PROTECTING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We take appropriate technical and organizational measures to guard against unauthorized or unlawful processing of your personal data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, your personal data. While no computer system is completely secure, we believe the measures implemented by our site reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved. We have security measures in place to protect our user database and access to this database is restricted internally. However, it remains each user’s responsibility:
1. to protect against unauthorized access to your use of the site;
2. to log off or exit from site when not using it; and
3. where relevant, to keep his/her password or other access information secret.
We use third-party site usage tracking companies to analyze your site visit or to conduct surveys. In the course of serving our pages, these third parties may place or recognize a unique “cookie” on your browser. These companies may use information about your visits to the site and other Web sites in order to help us understand how to serve you better.
WEB BEACONS AND CLEAR GIFS
We gather and share anonymized information concerning the usage of the site by users with one or more third-party tracking companies for the purpose of reporting statistics. In this connection, some of the pages you visit on our Site use electronic images placed in the web page code, called pixel tags (also called “clear GIFs” or “Web Beacons”) that can serve many of the same purposes as cookies.
Web beacons may be used to track the traffic patterns of users from one page to another in order to maximize web traffic flow.
THIRD PARTIES AND YOUR PRIVACY
As indicated above, we may work with other companies who place cookies or web beacons on our site. These companies help operate our site and provide you with additional products and services. They are subject to confidentiality agreements with us and other legal restrictions. We do not permit any of these companies to collect personal information using cookies or web beacons on our site.
Some of these companies are our service providers who place cookies that help us serve our own content and compile anonymous site metrics and analytics. We require these companies to use the information they collect only to provide us with these services under contract.
