What information do we collect and how do we use it?
When you order, we need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number, and its expiration date. This allows us to process and fulfill your order and to notify you of your order status. For promotional features, we may ask for your name, address, and e-mail address so we can distribute promotional offerings, administer contests, and notify winners. When shopping, we may personalize your shopping experience by using your purchase history to shape our recommendations about the merchandise that might be of interest to you. We also monitor Customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us develop the design and layout of the site, determine Customer preferences and otherwise review product offerings and trends. We may also use the information we collect to occasionally notify you about important functionality changes to the Web site, new products or services, and special offers we think you'll find valuable.
How secure is Customer information?
When you place orders we offer the use of a secure server. The secure server software (SSL) encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. Furthermore, all of the Customer data we collect is protected against unauthorized access.
