This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, I'll use this information to contact you.

Cookies 
I use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help me improve your access to the site and identify repeat visitors to the site. For instance, when I use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on this site. Cookies can also enable me to track and target the interests of my users to enhance the experience on the site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on this site.

*Some of my business partners may use cookies on my site (for example, advertisers). However, I have no access to or control over these cookies.

This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that I am not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. I encourage users of this site to be aware when they leave this site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.


Surveys & Contests 
From time-to-time this site requests information via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.

Security 
I take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever sensitive information is collected (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to me in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page.

While encryption is used to protect sensitive information transmitted online, I also protect your information offline. Only people who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which personally identifiable information is stored are kept in a secure environment.
