This Site is controlled and operated by us from the United States and is designed for and intended for users located in the United States. We do not knowingly collect or process data of persons located outside the United States.
Collection of Information
Generally speaking, we collect or receive information when you use the Services in the following ways:
- Information You Provide Directly. You may provide information directly to us in several different ways. For example, when you make a purchase, we ask you for information that may be used to process your payment and ship your order, including your name, email address, phone number, mailing address and payment card information. We also collect your name and email address when you create an online account with us. Finally, we collect your name and email address when you voluntarily submit a comment or question using our “Contact Us” page. We may also collect your birth month and day when you provide it to us. We refer to this type of information as “Personal Information”.
- Information We Collect Automatically. We collect certain information about you and your computer or device automatically when you use the Services, which we refer to as “Usage Data”. Usage Data may include:
- The type of Web browser and operating system you have used to access the Services;
- Your IP address (which is a number automatically assigned to your computer when you access the Internet and can be used to derive your general geographic location);
- The website you visited before you came to the Services; and
- Your navigational information during each of your visits to the Services, including the activity of your browser when you are viewing the Site, your site path and the time you visit the Site, your purchasing history, and the products that you view while using the Services.
This Usage Data is collected using cookies, Web beacons, and similar technologies, as further discussed below.
- Other local storage. We, along with third-party partners, use other kinds of local storage, such as Local Shared Objects (also referred to as “Flash cookies”) and HTML5 local storage, in connection with the Services. These technologies are similar to the cookies discussed above in that they are stored on your computer and can be used to store certain Usage Data about your activities and preferences. However, these objects are stored in different parts of your computer from ordinary browser cookies. Many Internet browsers allow you to disable HTML5 local storage or delete information contained in HTML5 local storage using browser controls.
- Web beacons. We, along with our third-party partners, may also use technologies called Web beacons that communicate information from your Internet browser to a web server. Web beacons can be embedded in web pages, videos, or emails, and can allow a web server to read certain types of information from your browser, check whether you have viewed a particular web page or email message, and determine, among other things, the time and date on which you viewed the Web beacon, the IP address of your computer, and the URL of the web page from which the Web beacon was viewed. We and our partners use Web beacons for a variety of purposes, including analyzing the use of the Services and in conjunction with cookies to provide content and ads that are more relevant to you.
- Information from Commercially Available Sources. We may receive additional information about you — such as the websites you have visited — from sources such as data brokers, data cooperatives, and public databases.

- To provide you with the Services, products and information you request;

How We Respond to “Do Not Track” Signals
Some browsers have an optional Do Not Track (“DNT”) feature that allows you to express your preference regarding tracking of your online activity by websites. When you choose to turn on the DNT setting in your browser, your browser sends a special signal to websites, ad networks, plug-in providers, and other web services you encounter while browsing to stop tracking your activity via cookies or other tracking technologies. Our Site does not currently respond to DNT browser signals or mechanisms.
