Information Gathered by UsFor visitors to this Site and registered users, we log standard technical information, such as your IP address and the kind of browser you are using. If you choose to register with us, you may be asked to provide personally-identifiable information (“PII”), such as your name and email address. If you choose to shop on this Site, we also may collect your financial information, such as your credit card number, along with billing, shipping and other transactional information. We may collect other PII when you provide feedback or comments online, such as information about our products you own.
Pixel tags are tiny graphic files that are included in HTML-encoded email messages. We use pixel tags to gather information about emails sent to our users. When such a message is opened in an HTML-capable email program, the recipient’s computer accesses our server to retrieve the pixel tag file, and allows us to record and store the date and time, the recipient’s email address, and other standard logging information. These pixel tags may also read cookies.
Our Use and Disclosure of InformationThe information we collect about you in the course of our relationship is used to operate our Site and offer products and services to you. For example, we may use your PII to fulfill your order, to send you information about our company and services, or to contact you when necessary. We may also use your PII to send you periodic emails about new products and services or upcoming events (“promotional email”). In addition, we look at technical information to analyze traffic to this Site, to enhance our offerings and to provide our services to you. For example, we may use traffic information to see which portions of this Site are more frequently accessed and to gather broad demographic information.
We work with third parties who provide services that may include, but are not necessarily limited to, website hosting, data processing and analysis, back-up and security services, and processing of credit card transactions. We may share PII with these service providers for the purpose of providing these services. Although we seek to require these service providers to protect such PII, and to use it only for the purpose for which it was provided, we cannot be responsible for third parties’ use of PII.
In order to provide you with a full range of products and services, we may share your PII with our affiliates for marketing or other purposes. An affiliate means any company that controls, is controlled by or is under common control with us. In addition, we have built relationships with selected partners that are not affiliates, but which offer products or services that may be of interest to our users. If you opt-in to receive information from our selected partners through the “My Account” page, we may also share your PII with our unaffiliated third-party partners for marketing or other business purposes. Please refer to the section of this Policy titled “Opt Out,” below, if you would like to opt out of having your PII shared with affiliated or unaffiliated third parties for third party direct marketing.
In the event of a change of ownership or corporate restructuring (i.e. a sale, merger, acquisition or transfer of our assets), we may share or transfer your PII to a third party.
