Your privacy is very important to us. Please read this statement carefully. It is important that you make an informed decision when it comes to choosing whether to share any of your personal information with us.
Unique identifiers can be used for various purposes, including remembering your browsing preferences, your purchase history, directing advertising specifically to you, collecting information about your browsing history, as well as determining whether emails sent to you by us were received and/or opened.
We also use the information we collect from your use of our existing programs and services to help us develop new ones, and at times to send you personalized ads based on your particular interests. However, we do not use sensitive information such as race, sexual orientation, religion, or health to determine which ads we send you, and we do not collect genetic or biometric data (ex., fingerprints, retina patterns, voice waves).
Unique identifiers are sometimes stored in “cookies” (see below) to help websites display certain content in your browser and to remember, for example, your preferred language.
NOTE: You can configure your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. More about cookies below.

Why We Collect and Store Information From Your Computer
As indicated above, data regarding your computer hardware and software, including your IP address, browser, dates and times of access, domain names, and websites that referred you here, may be collected by the Site for purposes of improving the quality of the information and services provided; to understand our visitors’ preferences; to make improvements to our visitors’ overall experience of this website; and to personalize this experience where doing so would improve the enjoyment of the Site.
With the data we collect from your computer hardware and software, we are able to learn about the number of visitors to our Site and the types of technology visitors use on our Site. However, we do not track or record information about individuals and their visits (unless they are willingly participating in one of our programs) and we do not share this data with anyone outside the Company unless necessary for law enforcement purposes (see “disclosure exceptions” below). In other words, while we may be tracking what your computer is doing, we are not tracking the various individuals that may be using a particular computer unless they have identified themselves as a participant in one of our programs.
Advertising On Our Site
We have no control over the tracking and information collected by advertisers. Adjusting your privacy settings in your browser will not remove the advertisements, but it will make the advertising less relevant to your interests and activities on our Site.
Interacting With You
The contact information we collect from you, email, phone, text messaging, home/business address, is used to interact with you directly.
