To better serve you, we may also collect optional information about you such as

You may, however, choose to visit our site anonymously without registering or purchasing products from us. Be aware that when you visit our store, we also collect:
- information about your computer, including your IP address, the type of operating system and browser you use, and your computer’s location
- what pages you visit on our site and what links you click on
How do you use this information?
The main reasons we collect personal information from you are:
- To personalize your site experience and to allow us to deliver the type of content and product offerings in which you are most interested.
- To complete a sale/transaction or to process an order, return or warranty claim.
- To coordinate delivery services for products that you purchase from us.
- To administer a promotion, contest, survey or other site feature.
- To assist with customer service or improve customer relationship management.
If it’s a necessary part of any of these transactions, we may disclose your information to another company. For example, we pass on your name and address to a courier company to complete a delivery.
Email marketing (if applicable): With your permission, we may send you emails about our store, new products and other updates. Email addresses are only used internally for the purpose of sending you these emails. We respect your privacy rights and will not sell or rent your email address to other companies without your consent.
Do you disclose the information you collect to outside parties?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information unless we receive your express consent, except as described above. We may also disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.
How do you get my consent?
When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we assume you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.
If we ask you for personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your consent or provide you with an opportunity to say no. Saying no is called “opting out”. By opting out, you can tell us not to collect the information and/or not to share it with other companies.
How do I withdraw my consent?
If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime, by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
How can I modify or remove the information I have provided?
To delete all of your online account information from our database, sign into the “My Account” section of our site and remove your shipping addresses, billing addresses and personal information.
To delete your user account, you may contact us at email@example.com.
Please note that we may retain information about an individual sales transaction in order to service that transaction and for record keeping.
How long do you keep my personal information?
We only keep your personal information as long as necessary for the purposes we collected it, or as otherwise required by law.
How secure is my personal information?
To provide you with an increased level of security, online access to certain personal information may be protected with a password you select. We strongly recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in any unsolicited communication.
