PRIVACY POLICY

 

WE RESPECT YOUR PRIVACY

 
Revised April 22, 2012
 
 
Protecting your privacy is VERY IMPORTANT to the Companies.  This notice describes our use and protection of nonpublic personal information that we obtain when you complete an application, place an order, call us, or send us a letter or email. As you review this notice, please remember that:
 
  • We respect your privacy and make safeguarding your personal information a priority.
  • We maintain security practices to keep your personal information safe.
  • We do not sell or share your personal information with unrelated companies so that they can market their products or services to you.
  • If we believe that an unrelated company offers products or services that would be of interest to you, we may communicate to you about them ON THE SITES.  We will not communicate with these companies regarding your relationship with us, nor will we provide them any of your personal information. 
  • We expect persons or organizations that provide services on our behalf to keep your personal information confidential and to use it only to provide the services we have asked them to perform.  We will only provide such information if absolutely necessary to provide a service for which you have opted-in. 
  • When it comes to privacy, we believe that you have the right to make meaningful choices. If you ask us not to do so, we will not contact you about additional products and services.
 
We may request the following types of personal information from you:
 
  • Information about your identity, such as your name, address, email, and telephone number.
  • Information about your order transactions with us, our affiliates, or others, such as your credit card number and expiration date.
  • Information about your service usage with us, such as your tastes and preferences, and customer service, support, and website usage.
 
We will only share the personal information we collect with:
 
  • Our “affiliates” (i.e., companies related to us by common control or ownership, such as a publishing service provider).
  • Unrelated companies that perform work for us, including companies that perform customer service and support, customer surveys, or help us market or deliver products and services to you. All such companies that act on our behalf are contractually obligated to keep the personal information we provide them confidential and to use the personal information we share only to provide the services we ask them to perform for us.
  • Companies and other entities as required or permitted by law. 
We restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to those individuals who need to know that information to provide goods and services to you that you have requested. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations and industry standards to guard your personal information. Specifically, for example, we use encryption technology to safeguard your credit card data used in electronic transactions and store any personal information we collect from you on secure services. From time to time, we may call, email, or send direct mail to tell you about additional products and services from  the Companies, our affiliates, or unrelated companies that we think may be of interest to you. You may, however, opt out of such practice by telling us not to contact you about additional products and services. To opt out from such practice, please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Please note that the opt-out may take up to three (3) business days to take effect. The Companies or a designated service provider may use “cookies” or similar electronic tools to collect information to enhance your experience with this website. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your computer and which collects information about your use of this website, such as the website pages visited, the date and the time of a visit, the websites you visited immediately before and after visiting this website, etc. Any information collected by the cookies used by the Companies will be collected anonymously and will not be used by the Companies to subsequently identify you or to prepare the collection, processing, or use of personal information about you without your prior consent. The Companies make reasonable efforts to limit their designated service providers’ use of cookies or similar electronic tools in the same manner as set forth in this paragraph.
 
The Companies or a designated service provider may also place or recognize a unique cookie on your computer in order to display advertisements that you see on this website. Information about your visits to, and activity on, this site, as well as the number of times you have viewed an advertisement, is used to display on your computer screen customized advertisements that may be of particular interest to you.
 
Most browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually set your browser to disable cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. The help function on most browsers contains instructions on how to set your browser to notify you before accepting cookies or to disable cookies entirely. However, it is possible that some parts of this website will not function properly if you disable cookies. We may change our privacy policy or practices from time to time and will post the most current version of our privacy policy online on this page, and the date of the most recent revision will be posted at the top of this section. 
 
Changes to this privacy policy will be effective upon posting. If you had previously opted out of any of our practices, we will maintain that election even after the effective date of a change to this policy. The Companies may provide links to third-party websites. Since we do not control third-party sites and are not responsible for any personal information you may provide while on such sites, we encourage you to read the privacy policies on those websites before providing any of your personal information on such sites.
 
You may modify your user profile at any time, or contact us in order to access, review, rectify, or delete the personal information that you have provided to us by sending us an email describing your request to This email address is being protected from spambots.
