BY USING THE WEBSITE, YOU GIVE YOUR CONSENT THAT ALL PERSONAL DATA THAT YOU SUBMIT MAY BE PROCESSED BY US IN THE MANNER AND FOR THE PURPOSES DESCRIBED BELOW. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, DO NOT ACCESS OR USE THE WEBSITE.
Types of Information Collected
In order to better provide you with our numerous services, we collect two types of information about our users: Personally Identifiable Information and Nonpersonally Identifiable Information. Our primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide you with a smooth and efficient experience while using our Website and purchasing our products and services.
Personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. Examples of Personally Identifiable Information may include, but are not limited to, your first and last name, delivery address (including zip code), email address, telephone number and credit card number. Depending upon the activity, some of the information we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity. You agree that we may collect any Personally Identifiable Information voluntarily supplied by you, whether or not we have requested it. You must not submit any Personally Identifiable Information relating to a third party without their consent. We do not knowingly collect any information relating to third parties which you do not have permission to provide.
Nonpersonally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. We may gather certain information about you based upon where you visit on our Website in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Website’s Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web. An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (“TCP/IP”) network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks like the Web use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web, allowing web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet.
Collection Methods and Use of Information
We will primarily use your Personally Identifiable Information to provide information, products and services to you. We may also use Personally Identifiable Information to enhance the operation of our Website, fill orders, improve our marketing and promotional efforts, statistically analyze Website use, improve our product and service offerings, and customize our Website’s content, layout, and services. We may use Personally Identifiable Information to deliver information to you and to contact you regarding administrative notices and if you request that we do so. We may also use Personally Identifiable Information to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce our agreements with you, including our Terms and Conditions, and this Private Policy.
In addition, we may also collect, or our Service Partners may collect, certain Nonpersonally Identifiable Information. We use your Nonpersonally Identifiable Information to analyze usage patterns on our Website, diagnose problems with our servers and software, to administer our Website and to gather demographic information.
