We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many websites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses our site. For each visitor, our web server automatically recognizes the internet protocol (IP) address used to connect the user's computer to the internet, as well as login, password, and computer and connection information, such as browser type and version, operating system, and platform. We collect aggregate information on what pages on our site consumers access, how many visits we get, and statistics such as which site the visitors arrive from or if they directly type our website address into their browsers. We use it for internal review in aggregate and in a non-personally-identifiable form. Also, we receive and store any information users enter on our website, or give us when they are communicating with customer service by phone, email, or otherwise. This information includes names, addresses, and phone numbers; credit card information; and people to whom purchases have been shipped, including addresses and phone numbers. Collecting this information helps us personalize and continually improve your shopping experience.
The security of all personally identifiable information associated with our customers and visitors is a priority for us. Strong precautions are taken to protect the information of our site users. When users submit sensitive information via the site, that information is protected both online and offline. We do our best to provide secure transmission of the information from users' computers to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be 100% secure. While we strive to protect all personal information, when you transmit any information to us, you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. When credit card information is transmitted, we use industry standard, SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption to ensure the security of your information. We also have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information that we have collected from users. The sensitive information mentioned above is maintained in a restricted section in our offices.
