Our Commitment to Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. This privacy statement describes how we collect and use the personal information you provide to us on this website. It also describes the choices available to you regarding our use of your personal information and the steps you can take to access this information and to request that we correct or delete it.

Information We Collect

When requesting pages from our server, your computer automatically provides your Internet Protocol address (this is not your email address and cannot be used directly to contact you), information about the request, and certain information about the capabilities of your computer. We may log this automatically provided information and retain it to generate reports on website traffic and user profiles, to help diagnose errors, and to identify abuse of our systems.

We also collect and store information that you explicitly provide to us through forms on our website. For example, when you purchase our products, create a website membership, or join our mailing list, we collect various personal and payment information.

How We Use Information

We use your personal and payment information to charge you for the services you choose to receive and provide you with those services. If you supply us with your telephone number online, you will only receive telephone contact from us regarding orders that you have placed online.

Use of Email Addresses

When you create an account you will receive a one-time email message with your account information. We will also send you receipts for payments via email. We may contact you by email from time to time to notify you of updates to the services or other related matters that may be of interest to you. If we do, we will provide a clear method to opt-out of future messages that are not account or payment related. Otherwise, you will receive email from us only in response to a message or request from you.

Use of Cookies

Our website software uses cookies to maintain your session information. It may be necessary to accept cookies from our website in order to access our services.

Sharing Information We Collect

The information we collect is shared with agents or contractors who assist in providing support for our internal operations, used by us to contact consumers for marketing purposes, disclosed when legally required to do so, at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation, to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our website and applicable laws or to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our website.

Ad Servers

We do not partner with or have special relationships with any ad server companies. We do not share your personal information with any website advertising providers.

How You Can Access or Correct Your Information

Upon request we provide website visitors with access to the information that we maintain about them, any financial information that we maintain about them, unique identifier information (e.g., customer number or password) that we maintain about them, transaction information (e.g., dates on which customers made purchases, amounts and types of purchases) that we maintain about them, contact information (e.g., name, address, phone number) that we maintain about them.

Upon request, we offer visitors the ability to have inaccuracies corrected in contact information, financial information, unique identifiers, or transaction information.

Our Commitment to Data Security

All forms designed to receive payment information operate over secure connections only. Your payment information is never transmitted over the Internet without industry-standard encryption.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

From time to time, we may use customer information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice. If our information practices change at some time in the future we will post the policy changes to our Web site to notify you of these changes and provide you with the ability to opt out of these new uses. If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check back at our website periodically.
