To measure our visitors’ interest in and use of various areas of our site(s), including any advertising, we will rely upon aggregate information — which is information that does not identify you.

Although we may share this aggregate information with third parties, please rest assured that no information we provide to third parties will allow anyone to identify you, or determine anything personal about you. We allow you to update, correct, or delete your personal information.

In addition, if you request, we use commercially reasonable efforts to remove your name and personal information from our database. Please understand, however, that it may be impossible to remove this information completely, due to backups and records of deletions.

If you wish to remove your name from our database, simply send an e-mail to and type “REMOVE PERSONAL INFORMATION” in the subject line. We use “cookies” judiciously.

Unless you have chosen to disable it, your Internet web browser has a feature called a “cookie.” Cookies are small text files that a web site can use to recognize repeat users, to facilitate the user’s ongoing access to and use of the site, and to compile aggregate data to improve the site and focus advertising. Cookies work as follows: a web site will send a cookie to your browser that uniquely associates your computer with information the site can store for you. Your browser places the cookie in its cookie file. When you next access that site on your computer, the site recognizes the cookie, and makes the stored information available to you. We use cookies to provide you with certain features at our site, such as allowing you to place items in a shopping cart, holding items you put in your shopping cart between visits (registered and logged in shoppers only), and to help us better understand and respond to our visitors’ interests and preferences. If you do not want us to use cookies to collect this information, most browsers allow you to disable the cookie feature however you will not be able to use the shopping cart to purchase products. All cookies that we send visitors, whether you are a registered shopper or not, are removed from your computer when you close your browser. You will be issued a new cookie upon your next visit. Just as with other information, we do not share with third parties any personal information provided through the use of cookies.Exceptions.

There are two exceptions to our privacy policy. First, we may release or use personal information in connection with legal proceedings, or in response to a subpoena or court order.

Second, our policy only applies to information you provide to us.

We cannot be responsible for the conduct of these third parties. They may have policies concerning privacy and the use of cookies that differ substantially from ours, and you may receive unsolicited messages due to this conduct.

In the event that we change our primary business through merger/acquisition, sale or default, it may be necessary to share your data with a third-party to ensure continuity of service and sales support to you. A third-party will typically acquire this data as part of the sales or closing of business transaction and, in this event, your data is not “private” under the conditions previously described in this document.Your Consent.
