When you visit our Web Site, you may provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose, and information that we automatically collect as you browse our Web Site.
INFORMATION YOU VOLUNTARILY SUBMIT
How We Collect Information. We may collect and store any information you enter on our Web Site or provide to us in offline contacts we have with you. Information may be collected on our Web Site via registration forms, order forms, surveys, employment applications and emails. Please remember that any information that you voluntarily disclose in publicly-accessible areas of the Web Site becomes public information. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personally identifiable information in those areas.
Types of Information We Collect. When you make a purchase, we need to collect certain information about you in order to complete the transaction. This information may include, but not be limited to: your name, email address, home and/or business address, telephone numbers, age, and method of payment (credit card and expiration date). We will also record information about the details your purchase (e.g. what you purchased, quantity and other information related to the purchase).
How We Use Your Information. We strive to ensure that we give you a stress-free purchase experience and are dedicated to building a rewarding and lasting relationship with every customer. In order to provide the level of service we believe you expect from us, we may use your personally identifiable information for the following purposes: (i) to provide the Services and offerings that you request, and to communicate with you regarding such Services and offerings; (ii) to do all things necessary to administer those Services; (iii) to research, develop, manage, protect and improve our Web Site and Services; and (iv) to analyze data, or to have a third party do so on our behalf.
We also use your personally identifiable information for other purposes. For example, such information may be used to process and track your transactions and to send you information about our products and services and other information and materials that may be of interest to you. If you use our Web Site, information may also be used to evaluate what portions of our Web Site are visited more often than others, determine where visitors came from, where they go, and how long they stay on a particular page, or on our Web Site in general.
Other Sources of Information. We may match information collected from you through different means or at different times, including, for example, information collected online and offline, and use such information along with information obtained from other sources, including third parties. To do this, it is often necessary to share this information with carefully selected vendors and business partners we work with, such as companies that manage accounts, offer affinity, frequent-user, and reward programs, and companies that perform marketing services and other business operations for us.
Disclosure of Information to Others. We may disclose your personally identifiable information to affiliated and non-affiliated organizations including, for example: (i) to your company or organization if you use our Services under a corporate or other commercial account; (ii) to entities that provide services on our behalf; (iii) to Paypal or other payment processors; (iv) to credit reporting and fraud checking agencies; (v) to debt collection agencies, if you fail to pay monies owed to us; and (vi) to government, regulatory and law enforcement agencies where the disclosure is required or authorized by law.
Information Disclosed to Credit Card Processors. When you make a purchase, you will be required to provide a valid credit card number and expiration date.

Credit card transactions are handled by ____________ or other third party financial institutions who receive credit card numbers and other personal information from us to verify the credit card numbers and process transactions. We process transactions through third party providers who support Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard compliance.
Other Uses. We may use personal information you voluntarily submit to communicate with you if and when necessary in connection with your use of our Web Site, to respond to your questions, or to send you material and information you request. For example, we may use your information to personalize your Web Site experience and to allow us to deliver the type of content and product information in which you are most interested, register you for an event, contest or sweepstakes, if you request it, or provide you with e-mail messages and other information regarding upcoming events, new services and general information about our products and services. (NOTE: You may elect not to receive these communications, either when you initially register at our Web Site, or at any time thereafter. See the section of this Privacy Statement called "Choice/Opt Out.")
INFORMATION COLLECTED AND STORED AUTOMATICALLY
When you browse our Web Site, you and your Web browser may also transmit information that we automatically collect. We may log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer), the Web pages you visit and the time of your visit, and other click-stream data. This information may be combined with other personal information you have provided. The only other type of information automatically provided to us is the type of computer, operating system and browser you are using. This information is provided by your browser, which we use to improve the performance of our Web Site.

We may hire third parties to help us collect and analyze such data, and we may share such statistical data with third parties. Again, such statistical data will not specifically identify you or any other user. We use this information to help us make our Web Site more useful to visitors -- to learn about the number of visitors to our Web Site, what part of the Web Site they are interested in, how long the use the Web Site, and the types of technology our visitors use.
