We will not sell, share, or rent this information to any outside parties, except as specifically outlined in this policy. We collect information from our customers to process orders and better serve you with pertinent information, such as order confirmations and order status updates. Information thus collected includes your name, shipping address, billing address, telephone number(s), e-mail address, and payment information such as your credit card number.
We collect the e-mail address of those who communicate with us via e-mail. We also collect e-mail addresses, names and other personal information volunteered by our visitors through such sources as survey information and/or site registrations.
We collect aggregate information on what pages consumers access or visit, as well as user specific (e.g. IP Address) information on what pages consumers access or visit. We utilize the collected information to improve the content of our Web pages, to customize the content and/or layout of our pages for individual consumers and to contact consumers (on an "opt in" basis) for marketing purposes. If you elect to receive our newsletter or special promotion notifications, your contact information will be used for the delivery of these items.

Most of the information collected in the registration process will be used to process orders. During the order process, you will have to provide financial information such as your credit card number, expiration date, money order, wire transfer or check information. This information is used for billing purposes and to fulfill your order. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this contact information to get in touch with you.
