Information We Collect
There are two types of Information that may be collected through our Website: (1) "Personal Information" which is information that can be used to directly identify you such as your name, e-mail address, physical address, phone number, and credit card number, and (2) "Usage Data" which is anonymous information not linked to you personally that is related to your use of the Website, including information about the computer and mobile device you use when visiting the Website, (e.g., your unique device ID, Internet Protocol (IP) address, or other persistent identifiers), as well as data regarding your activity, such as the actions you take within and outside of the Website, the browser and/or device you use, and the date and time of your use of the Website.
Whether or not you submit Personal Information, whenever you visit the Website, click on our advertisements (including those appearing on third party sites), or visit our social media pages, we or our Service Providers (as defined below) may collect, store or accumulate certain Usage Data based on your use of our Website, such as information regarding which of our pages or products are most popular, the browser you use, your computer's IP address, and the URLs you visited before and after using our Website. For more information on how this Usage Data is collected, please see the Cookies section below.
Please note that we will only collect your credit card information if you choose to purchase our products online via our Website. If you do make such an online purchase, our payment processing partner will collect your payment information and process your payment.

Uses and Sharing of Information
We use the Personal Information that we collect to process your requests, fulfill your orders, authenticate website visits/usage, inform you of relevant products and specials through promotional e-mails, maintain and develop our Website, and otherwise communicate with you. You always will be given the opportunity to unsubscribe from further emails in any promotional messages we send you.

Except as described above, we will not disclose, rent, sell or share any Personal Information to unaffiliated third parties for direct marketing purposes.
We do contract with companies or individuals to provide us and you with certain services including email and hosting services, software development, credit card processing, shipping, fulfillment, data management, surveys and marketing, promotional services, etc. We call them our "Service Providers." We may share both your Personal Information and Usage Data with Service Providers solely as required for them to perform their functions. We do not share your credit card or other account information with third parties unless you authorize us to do so, or if it is necessary to fulfill our responsibilities including, but not limited to, delivering a product or service that you order.
In addition, aggregated, non-personally-identifiable Usage Data may be used by us, or shared with our Service Providers for use, in connection with general operational, administrative, advertising, analytical, research, optimization, and security purposes, but no such information will be linked with your Personal Information or be used to identify or contact you. For more information about how Usage Data may be used for interest-based advertising, please see the section entitled "Targeted Advertising" below.
