Personally Identifiable Information
Personally Identifiable Information ("PII") is information that identifies you or could reasonably be used to identify you personally (such as your real name, address, phone number, or email address). For example, when you create an account with us, your account information is stored on this Web Site's server. We may also ask you to provide us with certain PII in connection with the use of this Web Site, in connection with the services provided by our Customer Service Department, in connection with a brick-and-mortar transaction (except where prohibited by law), or in connection with an off-line promotion or sweepstakes. For example, we may ask you to provide certain PII when you register with us, place an order on the Web Site, choose to sign up for an email newsletter or participate in a promotional event. This information is used to provide the products and services that you have ordered or requested, to process and ship orders, to send order and shipping confirmations and to provide customer service. This information also may be used to contact you about sales, special offers, and new web site features, unless you have opted not to receive promotional communications in connection with this Web Site. We may also ask you to provide us with demographic information, information regarding your interests, or similar information. Providing us with information about yourself is voluntary, and you can always choose not to provide certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of or participate in some of the Web Site's features.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
When your computer contacts our web servers (for example, when you visit this webite, or view an HTML email), our web servers automatically collect Web Site usage information. Web Site usage information is non-identifying information that describes how our visitors use and navigate our Web Site. It can include the number and frequency of visitors to each web page and the length of their stays, browser type, referrer data that identifies the web page visited prior and subsequent to visiting our Web Site, and IP addresses (see below for more information on IP addresses). We also may determine the applicable technology available in order to serve you the most appropriate version of a web page, email or similar service. This information is used to analyze and improve this Web Site and to provide our customers with a fulfilling shopping experience.
Our web pages or email messages may contain a small graphic image called a web beacon, which is sometimes also called a "clear gif," that allows us to monitor and collect certain limited information about our users, such as the type of browser requesting the web beacon, the IP address of the computer that the web beacon is sent to, and the time the web beacon was viewed. Web beacons can be very small or invisible to the user, but, in general, any electronic image viewed as part of a web page or email, including HTML-based content, can act as a web beacon. We may use web beacons to count visitors to our web pages or to monitor how our users navigate our Web Site, and we may include web beacons in email messages in order to count how many messages we sent were actually opened or acted upon. We use web beacons to compile aggregate statistics about our Web Site and our marketing campaigns.
Use of IP Addresses
An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer or network when you are linked to the Internet. When you request pages from this Web Site, our servers log your IP address. We may use IP address for a number of purposes, such as system administration, to report aggregate information to our business partners, or to audit the use of the Web Site. We may associate your IP address with the PII you provide. We also may collect and store information about you that we receive from other sources, to enable us to update and correct the information contained in our database and to provide product recommendations and special offers that we think will interest you.
We use features of Google Analytics for Display Advertisers. That includes obtaining specific visitor cookie data, such as the source, medium, and keyword used to visit our Web Site. Google Analytics does not store any visitor specific data and we will not use visitor specific data in any way related to Google Analytics, Google Adwords, and Remarketing. We use remarketing with Google Adwords and analytics to display content specific advertisements to visitors that have previously visited our site when those visitors go to other websites that have the Google Display Network implemented. This Web Site, and other third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on visitor’s past visits to our Web Site.

We may share your PII with our affiliates and companies we hire to perform support services for us, such as web hosting, credit card processing and order fulfillment. In addition, there may be some other, limited circumstances in which we may share or transfer PII to third parties. For example, we may provide personal information to a third party: (a) to comply with a legal requirement or court order; (b) to investigate a possible crime, such as identity theft; (c) to protect the security of our Web Site and the integrity of our databases; or (iv) in connection with a corporate transaction, such as a divestiture, merger, consolidation, asset sale or similar event. Where appropriate, before disclosing PII to a third party, we will contractually require the third party to take reasonable precautions to protect such information against unauthorized use or disclosure.
You may receive promotional emails from us, and receiving promotional communications from us is optional. You will be given the opportunity to “opt out” or stop receiving such e-mails at any time. If you do not want to receive such communications, to opt out simply send an email to the address provided in such communication and include “Remove” or “Unsubscribe” in the reply or subject line (or click any applicable provided link), or write to our Customer Service, ATTN: Privacy and Security Policy. Please include your name and e-mail address so that we can identify your e-mail address in our database and process your request.
