Our Disclosure of Your Personal Information

Except as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, we do not sell, rent, or share your Personal Information with third parties.  We disclose your Personal Information for the following purposes:

Providing Services To You.  We use your personal information to provide services to you.

Fulfilling Orders and Maintaining Systems.  When you purchase a product or a service from us, we will share select Personal Information, such as your shipping address and billing address, with third-party fulfillment companies in the United States, in order to deliver the product or service to you. We also share your Personal Information with third-party service providers in the United States that provide advertising and marketing services for us, including distribution of postal mail, electronic alerts, email, and mobile text messages to our customers and potential customers.  We require these third-party service providers to refrain from using your Personal Information, except to provide the services requested by us. We also hire vendors that work on our systems that may have access to your Personal Information in the course of performing their duties.  We require those vendors to keep your Personal Information confidential and not to use it for their own purposes.  You expressly consent to the sharing of your Personal Information with our third-party service providers and vendors.

Sharing with Affiliates.  We reserve the right to share some or all of your Personal Information with our subsidiaries, joint ventures, and other companies in the United States under our common control (collectively, “Affiliates”), for the purposes described in this policy. We require our Affiliates to honor this Privacy Policy.

Compliance with Laws and Protection of Rights.  Regardless of any choices you make regarding your Personal Information, we may disclose your Personal Information if we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with laws or to respond to subpoenas or judicial orders; or (b) to protect and defend our rights, or the rights or safety of third parties.

Acquisition, Sale, or Reorganization.  We may also use and disclose Personal Information in connection with a contemplated reorganization or an actual reorganization of our business, in connection with financing, a sale, or other transaction involving the disposal of all or part of our business or assets, including for the purpose of permitting the due diligence required to decide whether to proceed with a transaction. If the sale occurs, the purchaser will be entitled to use and disclose the Personal Information collected by us, and the purchaser will assume the rights and obligations regarding your Personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy.

Advertising

Interest-Based Advertising.  We may use “interest-based” advertisements also known as “online behavioral advertising.” Online behavioral advertising is advertising that is directed to you based, at least in part, on your Internet browsing behavior across websites and over time. Although we do not share Personal Information with the third parties that conduct interest-based advertising operations on our behalf, these third parties and their affiliates do collect certain information as a result of their javascript “tags” and other technologies being used on our website.

Third Parties May Collect Personal Information from Other Sources.  Some third parties involved in advertising operations may maintain their own proprietary databases that allow them to personally identify or track website visitors. Other third parties have proprietary technologies to determine what additional devices you may use, on which it can display relevant advertisements.

Do Not Track.  Do-Not-Track is a public-private initiative that has developed a “flag” or signal that an Internet user may activate in the user’s browser software to notify websites that the user does not wish to be “tracked” by third-parties as defined by the initiative. The online community has not agreed on what actions, if any, should be taken by the websites that receive the “do not track” signal, and therefore Do-Not-Track is not yet standardized. Our website does not alter its behavior or change its services when it receives a “do-not-track” flag or signal from your browser.

Your Privacy and Ad Choices.  You can make decisions about your privacy and the ads you receive. You can control whether companies serve you on-line behavioral advertising by visiting the Digital Advertising Alliance website and using its opt-out: http://www.aboutads.info/choices/.  The DAA opt-out requires that cookies not be blocked in your browser.

As an alternative to the DAA opt–out, you can also elect to block browser cookies from first parties (such as those from our website) and browser cookies from third parties (such as advertisers) by using the cookie blocking options built into your browser software.  If you block browser cookies, some parts of our website may not function correctly.  Also, blocking cookies will not stop third parties from collecting IP addresses, data stored in “Flash” cookies, and certain other types of technical information that may uniquely identify your browser.

Technologies Used

Third parties, widgets, and hosted solutions that we use on our website may use the following technologies for features, services, advertising, or analytics:

Browser cookies are small pieces of data placed on your computer as you navigate websites with your browser.  Browser cookies allow websites and various third-parties to distinguish your device from others by having the cookie consist of a unique identifier or other data.  Cookies can have many uses, such as to target advertising as well as to enable website functionality and for security.  We use both session cookies (which expire after you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them). Persistent cookies can be removed by following your Internet browser help file directions. If you choose to disable cookies, some areas of our website may not work properly.

Local shared objects (such as “Flash” cookies) are associated with non-Browser software like Flash Player.  Local shared objects can be used like cookies to distinguish your device from others but will not be deleted or blocked using browser cookie controls.  You can visit adobe.com for guidance on how to delete and block Flash cookies.

HTML5 local storage is another way that browsers can distinguish your device from others as well as remember data that may be important for the functioning of the website.  Typically HTML5 local storage is only deleted if all Internet history, cache, and cookies are deleted.  You should check your browser software for how to delete HTML5 local storage in your particular case.

Web beacons are image files that are used by third-party advertisers, analytics companies, and others.  Web beacons are embedded in web pages you visit and cause your browser to share its IP address with the third-party source of the beacon, together with any cookies associated with that third party.  Web beacons can be used with or without cookies.  Blocking cookies will not stop your IP address from being shared through the use of beacons.

E-tags are used to prevent duplicative downloading of content to your browser, which can enhance browser performance.  E-tags use unique identifiers for content that can also be used to distinguish your browser in certain instances from others.  Typically, e-tags are only deleted if all Internet history, cache, and cookies are deleted.  You should check your browser software for instructions on how to delete e-tags in your particular case.

Other technologies.  Our website may occasionally use other technologies, both for purposes of advertising, as well as for features and services.

Social Network Widgets

Our website may include social network sharing widgets that may provide information to their associated social networks or third parties about your interactions with our web pages that you visit, even if you do not click on or otherwise interact with the plug-in or widget. Information is transmitted from your browser and may include an identifier assigned by the social network or third party, information about your browser type, operating system, device type, IP address, and the URL of the web page where widget appears. If you use social network tools or visit social networking sites, you should read their privacy disclosures to learn what information they collect, use, and share.

How You Can Stop Receiving Communications

When you receive sales flyers, advertisements, direct mail, and other promotional communications from us, including email, you will have the opportunity to “opt-out” by following the “unsubscribe” instructions in the email you receive, or by contacting us directly. Once you have submitted your email address to “unsubscribe,” please note that you may continue to receive emails for a temporary period of time while our system updates and until it has processed your request.
