A. Information Collected

We may ask you for your name and email address so that we can keep in touch with you and keep you informed of new services or events being provided or hosted by us. In connection with purchases you make from our online shop located on the website, we may also collect and store your billing information. We do not intend to collect any other personal information from you, however, if you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence. Except as described in Paragraph D below, we will not share your personal information with any third party except as we may be required by law, court order or other governmental authority.

You may have certain rights under the Communications Act, Federal Trade Commission Act, and other state and federal statutes that may apply, and by accepting these terms and using the website, you are waiving all of these rights as to collection, use, disclosure and storage of your personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information collected by us.

In addition to the personally-identifiable information we collect, certain non-personally identifiable information about our visitors is collected by the use of “cookie” technology (described below), such as the type of Internet browser you are using and the domain name of your Internet service provider, where you go within the website, how much time you spend in any particular area and other data. As described more fully below, we may share non-personally identifiable information with advertisers and other third parties in order to enhance the user experience and present users with targeted advertising, products and services.

A “cookie” is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive for the purpose of facilitating and enhancing your communication and interaction with the website. We may use cookies to customize your visit to the website and for other purposes to make your visit more convenient or to enable us to enhance our service. You may, at any time, stop or restrict the placement of cookies on your computer or delete them from your browser by adjusting your Web browser preferences, in which case you may still use the website, but it may interfere with some of its functionality. We do not use cookies to retrieve personal information from your computer, or use cookies to retrieve other information from your computer for purposes that are unrelated to the website or your interaction with the website. We reserve the right to disclose or utilize any of this information in aggregate form, for any purpose, in our sole judgment.

Advertisers that serve ads onto the website may also use their own cookies. The ad company’s Privacy Policy and/or that of its service provider will govern the use of this information and we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such ad company.

This website is not intended for, and we have no intention of collecting personally identifiable information from, children under the age of 13. If a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personally identifiable information, that child’s parent or legal guardian should contact us (see below), if they would like the information submitted by the child deleted from the website. We will use all reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database.
