PRIVACY & SECURITY
1. INFORMATION COLLECTION
When you register with us, place an order with us, or participate in a promotion or survey, you provide us with personal information, including your name, e-mail address, postal address, telephone number and credit card number..
2. USE OF INFORMATION
We do not sell or rent the personal information you provide to us to any third party except as specifically described herein.
We may from time to time contract with third parties, such as our e-commerce provider, and our bank referred to herein as our “business partners”, to provide services for us, including assistance in maintaining and managing customer information; providing customer and internet services; taking and fulfilling orders; conducting promotions and surveys; and communicating with our customers. None of our business partners are authorized to make any other use of your information. Please be aware that we do not have any control over our business partners and cannot guarantee their compliance.
From time to time, to learn more about demographics and interests, we may share certain non-personally identifiable information of our customers with third parties, including age, gender, city and state of residence, shopping preferences, and other information voluntarily provided upon registration to this Site or otherwise, but such information will never contain the name, address, telephone number, e-mail address or credit card information of any customer.
Sale/Transfer of Business Assets.
As our business continues grow, we may sell or buy business assets. In such transactions, client information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that all, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, our customer information will be one of the transferred assets.
Required Disclosure of Information.
In addition to the circumstances identified herein, we may be required to disclose information provided by our customers if required to do so by law, court order, as requested by other government or law enforcement authority, or in the good faith belief that disclosure is otherwise necessary or advisable including, without limitation, to protect our rights or properties or when we have reason to believe that disclosing the information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing interference with our rights or properties, whether intentionally or otherwise, or when anyone else could be harmed by such activities.
Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might be disclosed to a third party, and you will have an opportunity to either provide or deny consent.
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide features that will help you to enjoy a more personal and relevant browsing experience. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in future. The "help" portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether.

5. PROTECTING THE PRIVACY OF CHILDREN
The safety of children when they use the Internet is of great importance to us. With this in mind, this Website is intended for use by persons 18 years of age and older. Consistent with the Children´s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If we receive actual knowledge that anyone under the age of 13 provides us with personally identifiable information, we will remove all such personally identifiable information about that person from our files.
In addition, we use the latest 128bit encryption technology (Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL) to help ensure the security of your personal information. Never give your credit card or personal information in an email as email messages are not secure.
On our Website, the information you provide, including your name, contact and shipping information, credit card number, and any other personal data submitted when you place an order is encrypted (or coded) using a secure server for maximum security. All of your information is encrypted before it´s transmitted across the Internet, then decoded only after it arrives at our secure servers to be processed. This coding makes it extremely difficult for anyone to reach your information as it moves through our ordering system.
To check the security of your system before entering personal information, look at the lower left-hand corner of your browser window: If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock, then the encryption technology is active and the server is secure. You can also check for security by looking at the URL line of your browser; when you access a secure server, the initial characters of the site address will be, “https” (vs. http).
