PERSONAL IDENTIFICATION INFORMATION
How we collect and store information depends on the page or portion of the Site that you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. You can visit many pages on the Site without providing any information. Other pages may prompt you to provide information, such as when you register for access to portions of the Site, sign up for membership, request certain features or make a purchase.
We do not collect personally identifiable information through the Site unless that information is provided by you during registration for various features on the Site. Information required to participate in such features may vary but will typically include your first and last name; address including city, state, zip code and country; daytime and evening phone numbers; and e-mail address; and, in the case of making purchases, a credit card number and expiration date. You may also be requested to provide a username and password for certain features.
Like most websites, the Site also collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to our visitors. For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use “cookie” technology. Among other things, the cookie may store your user name and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular feature while visiting the Site. As we adopt and/or implement additional technology, we may also gather information through other means. In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but doing so may limit your ability to access certain portions of the Site or may require you to re-enter your user name and password. Additionally we may not be able to customize the Site’s features according to your preferences.
NON-PERSONAL IDENTIFICATION INFORMATION
Information is also collected automatically using electronic tools. Most web sites use ‘cookies’ to recognize you and your information, and may store data such as a user name and password so you won’t need to enter it each time you visit. It might determine how often you’re exposed to a specific advertisement. It also may note your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
As technology evolves, we may use other methods to collect information. There may be times when you can refuse to provide information, such as by setting your browser to refuse ‘cookies’, but doing this may make it impossible to access sections of the web site, or you may need to enter your user details each time, and the site won’t be customized for your preferences.
HOW WE USE COLLECTED INFORMATION
The information we gather is to make your visit to our site the best experience possible. It enables us to customize things such as content and advertising, which might be of interest to you. We may use the email address to send User information and updates pertaining to an order, respond to inquiries, questions, or other requests. In addition, if a User decides to opt-in to our mailing list, they will receive periodic emails that may include company news, updates, and new offerings. If at any time the User would like to unsubscribe from receiving future mailings, details are included at the bottom of each email.
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
The Site has undertaken various security measures to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under its control. We have and will continue to undertake physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information.
Only those employees and hired professionals (e.g., lawyers) needed to carry out requisite business functions will have access to information on individual Site users. Employees and hired professionals violating these privacy policies will be subject to disciplinary action.
SHARING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We do not sell, trade, or rent Users personal identification information to others. Your information is never shared, and your private information remains private.

We may divulge your information when presented with a court order or when legally required, in order to collect monies owed to us, or when requested by law enforcement agencies.

As our business expands, we may buy, sell, or partner with other companies. In these circumstances, certain demographic information about our web site users may be among the data transferred.
