We may collect personal identification information from users in various ways, including but not limited to when users visit our site, register on the site, place an order, subscribe to a newsletter, respond to a survey, fill out a form, and in connection with other activities, services, features or resources we make available.
Users may be asked for information such as name, email address, mailing address, phone number, credit card information. Users may also choose to provide additional personal information to us for display on their user profile, but they are not required to provide such information to use the site.
We may track and collect non-identifying information about your use of our website, such as pages visited, links clicked, search engine referrals, browser type, operating system, average time spent on the site, and aggregated demographic information. We use this information to better understand user activity and improve the quality of our website and services.

We may use both personal and non-personal information collected through our site for purposes such as:
- Provide, maintain, improve, and promote our products and services

We may also use aggregated non-identifying information for various business purposes such as research, analysis, demographic studies, and other activities.
We will not disclose, sell, trade, or rent users’ personal identification information unless we have their permission or are required by law. We may share non-personal information publicly and with partners – for example, by publishing aggregate demographic data.
Third Party Service Providers
We may employ third party companies and individuals to help operate our site, analyze user data, provide services, process payments, and assist with other activities. These third parties may have access to personal information provided by users but are contractually obligated to maintain confidentiality and security of user data.
We take reasonable security measures to protect against unauthorized access, loss, misuse, or alteration of personal information under our control. However, no Internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error free. Users should take special care in deciding what information to send to us via email or forms on our website.
