1. Information Collected By Us
A. Information That Is Personally Identifiable
We collect personally identifiable information in order to help serve our customers. Such information may include names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, and sometimes credit card information. This information is only used for the following purposes: (1) to provide the products and/or services requested; (2) to ensure your compliance with the terms and conditions; (3) to gather feedback on visitor experience; (4) to allow for communication, when necessary, regarding your use of the website or product(s); and (5) for the following situations below that will allow us to better serve you.
We DO NOT share any personally identifiable information with third parties without your explicit permission. We collect this information to help you. It allows us to provide you with information on other products and services that may interest you, and includes any third party offers. We do this to help personalize your experience, which in turn results in a higher quality of service.
If you share your email address on our site, you are consenting to receive our emails. You may unsubscribe to our emails at any time by clicking the opt-out link or other unsubscribe method included in the respective email. We only send messages to people who have authorized us to contact them, either directly, or through a third party. We do not send unsolicited commercial emails, more commonly referred to as spam.
By submitting your email address, you are agreeing to its use in custom audience targeting on social media sites such as Facebook, where we display advertising to specific people who have consented to receive communication from us.
By submitting your telephone contact information on the website and/or registering to receive the product and/or service offered herein, such act constitutes a purchase, an inquiry, and/or an application for the purposes of the Amended Telemarketing Sales Rule (ATSR), 16 CFR ‘310 et seq. and any applicable state and local “do not call” regulations. We retain the right to contact you via telemarketing in accordance with the ATSR and the applicable state regulations.
B. Information That Is Not Personally Identifiable
Additionally, we may also collect non-personally identifiable information in order to improve your website experience, gauge website activity for possible improvements, and to gather aggregate data to help serve site visitors better in the future.
For example, we may use session and persistent “cookies,” session logs, web beacons, GIF/pixel tags, banner ads, third-party click tracking analytics tools (such as Google Analytics), third party retargeting networks that may show our advertisements to you on other sites you may frequent to remind you about us, and third party networks that serve user-requested emails (e.g., for a refer-a-friend email) to gather non-personally identifiable or other aggregated information about site visitors.
You do have alternative options such as configuring your web browser to NOT accept cookies. However, be aware that disabling cookies may keep you from gaining access to some functions or services on our website or the web-hosted software that runs on our website.
Any electronically sent messages or newsletters may utilize techniques such as web beacons or pixel tags to accumulate email metrics and data to improve the reader’s experience, such as the number of emails opened, whether they were forwarded or printed, the kind of device from which they were opened, and location (e.g. city, state, and county) associated with the corresponding IP address.
Since there has been no consensus on how to interpret web browser-based “Do Not Track” signals other than cookies, we do not currently respond to “Do Not Track” signals that are undefined.
If you happen to visit this site with an open ID (such as Facebook), you may be sharing and integrating data with third-party social media sites, and we may track aggregate data about the quantity of visits to this website with an open ID, the quantity of things “liked” on the website, or things on this website that you decide to share with a third-party social media site.
Different parties such as advertising partners and analytics companies may also be gathering information about your online activity across different websites over time. The data gathered by those third parties may include identifiers that allow those third parties to tailor the advertising content to your computer or other device.
2. Children’s Privacy
We do not knowingly intend to gather personally identifiable information from minors under 18 years of age. If your minor child has given us any personally identifiable information, please contact us at the phone number or mailing address listed in Section 6 if you wish to have the information deleted from our records. We will take any reasonable efforts to expel your child’s information from our databases.
3. Use of IP Addresses
We may use your IP address to aid in fraud prevention, to diagnose problems with our server, to gather demographic information, and to provide you with access to third party products and/or services.
4. Data Security Commitment
We store all of your personally identifiable information in a technically and physically secure environment. Moreover, employees, contractors, and vendors who have access to your personally identifiable information in connection with their employment for us are required to keep all such information private.
We utilize SSL encryption to secure sensitive information online, and we do everything we can to ensure user information offline. However, no online transmission can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Therefore, while we make reasonable efforts to ensure your information is protected, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information that you share with us, and you do so at your own risk.
5. Actions of Third Parties
We do not control and do not assume any risk for the actions of any third parties who we may promote and/or link to on our website. We value working with quality organizations, but have no control over their actions. While we are not liable for any of the actions of those third parties, we urge you to provide us with any feedback on your experience with any third parties to whom we work with so that we may improve our future service to all visitors.
