Privacy Policy

We know that you care how your information is used, and we appreciate your trust that we will use it carefully and sensibly. This notice describes our privacy policy. By viewing pages on this website, you are accepting the privacy policy described below.

1. What Personal Information Do We Collect?

Information You Provide. We receive and store information you enter. For example, when you supply information such as your email address and name. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of some of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, improving our website, and communicating with you. In addition, if you choose, we may share your information with affiliated websites or businesses that may be able to provide information that you are interested in. We will never share, sell, or redistribute your information without your express consent.

Cookies. Like many websites, we use "cookies". Cookies are small files that are transferred to your hard drive that allow us to recognize you and to provide you with a customized experience. If you do not want us to use cookies, you can easily disable them by going to the toolbar of your web browser, and clicking on the "help" button. Follow the instructions that will prevent the browser from accepting cookies, or set the browser to inform you when you receive a new cookie. In addition, you may visit this and other websites anonymously through the use of utilities provided by other private companies.

Search Results. Search results on this site are provided by a third party service provider. Persuant to the above, the third party may also use cookies or web beacons to deliver customized content. See the preceding point for information on how to disable cookies if you so choose.

Other Information: Every computer has an IP (Internet Protocol) address. IP addresses of computers used to visit this site are noted. In addition, we may collect other information such as email addresses, browser types, operating systems, and the URL addresses of sites clicked to and from this site.

2. How Do We Use Your Information?

Confirmation of Identity. We use your information to confirm that you are the individual who has provided us with information in order to prevent spam or vandalism on our website and contact email accounts.

Agents. We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

Announcements. If you have specifically opted-in when providing personal information, we may send you news releases and announcements. You may choose to "opt-out" of receiving such announcements by replying to the message when received or visiting an URL that will automatically opt-out or unsubscribe you from our contacts database. In addition, we may also send you news and announcements from other affiliated websites or businesses. Again, you may choose to "opt-out" of communications from us. If we send you offers from other businesses, we do not share your personal information with them. The messages come directly through us. Please see the "opt-in/opt-out" selection at the end of this policy.

Business Transfers. As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores or assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the unlikely event that we are acquired, customer information will be one of the transferred assets.

Law Enforcement. If we receive a lawful court order to release account or other personal information then we will comply with the law. We will also release information when necessary to protect the life, safety or property of others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

3. How Do We Protect the Security of Your Information?

We use encryption or password protection to protect your information contained in our customer list.

We use a firewall to protect against unlawful intrusion.

We limit access to your information on a "need to know" basis.

It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

No system can guarantee absolute security, just as the finest lock can not guarantee physical security. However, we take every reasonable precaution to assure that your data and personal information is secure.

4. Your Choice: Opt-in or Opt-out.

It is your choice whether to receive emails or special offers from us or others. When you submit your personal information, you may choose to opt-in to receiving further communications from us. When submitting personal information, we will send you a notice to indicate that we have received your communication, confirm the information that you have provided, and to provide the option to opt-out of receiving further communications from us.

You may opt-out of receiving further communications from us at any time, by either a) replying to a confirmation message sent to your account b) visiting an op-out/unsubscribe link provided in a communication from us, or c) contacting us directly and requesting that we remove your contact information from our database.
