WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION WILL BE COLLECTED?
Your information will only be collected when you complete a form, subscribe to a blog or newsletter, respond to a survey, or place an order.
Some of the information you may be asked to provide, including your name, mailing address, email address, phone number, or, if products or services are offered for sale, your credit/debit card or other payment information, may allow you to be identified. This type of information will be referred to as “Personal Information.”
You may, however, visit this site anonymously.
HOW PERSONAL INFORMATION WILL BE USED
Any information collected may be used to improve our website, personalize your experience, and more effectively respond to your needs.
• Chatrooms, Blogs or other Forums: This site may provide an opportunity for you to voluntarily post information to a chatroom or forum, as a comment to a blog entry or by means of other publicly accessible areas of the Services. If this is the case, any information that you provide may be publicly displayed. You are encouraged to refrain from providing any Personal Information, including any information regarding health or medical matters, or anything else that you wish to remain private, in such a context.

• Service Providers: We may at times contract with third party service providers to perform functions for us. These service providers may be given access to the information we collect for the purpose of performing those functions, but they will be contractually bound to maintain the confidentiality of the information and not to use it for any other purpose.
• Disclosures for Legal Reasons: We will disclose Personal Information when we are required to do so by law, regulation or securities exchange requirement, for example, in response to a court order or subpoena. We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency’s request or when we believe such disclosure is appropriate to protect our legal rights or to safeguard anyone’s property or safety.
HOW PERSONAL INFORMATION WILL BE PROTECTED
Your privacy is an utmost priority. We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of any Personal Information you provide. Personal Information will not be sold, traded, or otherwise shared with outside parties.
This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
Because we value your privacy we have taken the necessary precautions to be in compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act. We therefore will not distribute your personal information to outside parties without your consent.
In accordance with the requirements of the COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act), we do not collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age.
Our website, products and services are all directed to people who are at least 13 years old or older.
We use reasonable efforts to maintain the security of all Personal Information, including technological safeguards, but cannot guarantee that an unauthorized breach or disclosure of such information could never occur.
