When you visit our site, we may ask for your e-mail address, name, and other information. We may also use various forms for listing, selling, purchasing, and returning products offered on our site. We may collect, depending on the form, your contact information (e.g. your e-mail address, mailing address and/or telephone number) and necessary financial information (i.e. your credit card number, expiration date, and exact name as it appears on your credit card). Contact information is used to process a sale and provide us with a means to contact our site users. Personally identified information also helps us tailor the content, services and goods to the current and future needs of the users of our site. We may use third parties to accept and process credit card payments for purchases of products on our site.
If you have agreed to be included on our e-mail list in order to receive e-mail solicitations from us, we may send you e-mail messages from time to time informing you of our products and services, special offers, tips and developments at our site and may also inform you about third party products and services that we believe may be of interest to you. If you do not want to receive these e-mails from us, you can go to your Registration Profile and unclick the “Opt In” box. You will automatically be removed from our e-mail solicitation list.
Use of Our Site by Children
Our site is not directed to children under the age of 13. We assume products purchased with credit cards are purchased by adults or minors supervised by a parent or guardian. We respect the privacy of parents and children and are committed to complying with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). On those areas of our site that ask for age, we do not collect personal information from individuals who identify themselves as under the age of 13 except in those limited circumstances where we believe that such collection is permitted under COPPA. If a parent believes that his or her child has provided us with personal information, he or she can contact us via e-mail or postal mail. We will promptly remove the information.
We have security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Although we will exercise reasonable care in providing secure transmission of information between your computer and our servers, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to is over the Internet and we accept no liability for any unintentional disclosure. We will protect the transmission of credit card information through industry standard encryption.

We may gather demographic information from you (e.g. your age, education level or household income) from time to time. We will not share such information with any other person or entity in any manner that identifies you as an individual, unless we let you know that at the time of collection or we have your permission. When we share demographic information with third parties, we will give them aggregate information only.
