Privacy Policy

  1. Information Collection
    When visiting this website, users consent to the collection and use of information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. When visiting the website users may provide the Company with two types of information: personal information users knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis, and website use information collected on an aggregate basis as users and others browse the website.

  2. Personal Information
    The Company may request that users voluntarily supply personal information, including their e-mail address, postal address, home or work telephone number and other personal information for such purposes as correspondence, placing an order, making a donation, or participating in online surveys.

    If correspondence is received through email, the Company may retain the content of the email messages received together with the sender’s email address and the Company’s responses. The Company provides the same protections for these electronic communications that are employed in the maintenance of information received by mail and telephone.

  3. Website Use Information
    Similar to other commercial websites, the website may utilize a standard technology called ‘cookies’ (see explanation below, ‘Cookies’) and web server logs to collect information about how the website is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at the website, and the websites visited just before and just after this website. This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with an individual user.

  4. Use of Personal Information
    Broadly speaking, the Company uses personal information for purposes of administering the Company’s business activities, providing customer service and making available other products and services to customers and prospective customers. Occasionally, the Company may also use the information collected to notify users about important changes to the website including this Privacy Policy, new services, and special offers users may find valuable. The lists used to send product and service offers are developed and managed under the Company’s traditional corporate standards designed to safeguard the security and privacy of user’s personal information. Users are allowed at any time to notify the Company of their desire not to receive these offers.

  5. Cookies
    Cookies are a feature of web browser software that allows web servers to recognize the device (computer, mobile device, etc.) the user used to access a website. Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored by a user’s web browser on the device’s storage medium (e.g. hard drive). Cookies can remember what information a user accesses on one web page to simplify subsequent interactions with that website by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user’s transactions on related web pages. This makes it easier for a user to move from web page to web page and to complete commercial transactions over the internet.

  6. Use of Information Collected from Cookies
    Website browser software tools such as cookies and web server logs are used to gather information about the website users’ browsing activities, in order to constantly improve the website and better serve the Company’s customers. This information assists the Company to continually improve the website to better meet the needs of its customers and prospective customers.

    Cookies allow the collection of important business and technical statistics. The information in the cookies allows for tracing the paths followed by users to the website as they move from one page to another. Web server logs allow counting how many people visit the website and evaluate the website’s visitor capacity. These technologies are not used to capture individual email addresses or any personally identifying information.

  7. Notice of New Services and Changes
    Occasionally, the Company may use the information collected to notify users about important changes to the website, new services and special offers. Users will be given the opportunity to notify the Company of their desire not to receive these offers by clicking on a response box when they receive such an offer or by sending an email request.

  8. Security
    When confidential personal credit card information is sent to the Company on the website, that information is encrypted and transmitted in a secure way. The transmitted information is therefore protected en route and decoded once it reaches the website.

    Other email that is sent to the Company may not be secure unless users are advised that security measures will be in place prior to transmitting the information. For that reason, users should not send confidential information, such as Social Security or account numbers, to the Company through an unsecured email.

  9. Information Protection
    Information Security. The Company utilizes encryption/security software to safeguard the confidentiality of personal information collected from unauthorized access or disclosure and accidental loss, alteration or destruction.

    Evaluation of Information Protection Practices. Periodically, the Company’s operations and business practices are reviewed for compliance with corporate policies and procedures governing the security, confidentiality, and quality of the Company’s information.

    Employee Access, Training and Expectations. The Company’s corporate values, ethical standards, policies and practices are committed to the protection of customer information. In general, the business practices limit employee access to confidential information, and limit the use and disclosure of such information to authorized persons, processes and transactions.

  10. Access and Correction of User Information
    Users may request access to all of their personally identifiable information that the Company collects online and maintains in its database by email.

  11. Disclosure of Information to Outside Parties
    The Company may provide aggregate information about its customers, sales, website traffic patterns and related website information to its affiliates or reputable third parties, but this information will not include personally identifying data, except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy.

  12. Legally Compelled Disclosure of Information
    The Company may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when, in good faith, the Company believes that the law requires it or for the protection of the Company’s legal rights.

  13. Permission to Use of Materials
    The right to download and store or output the materials on the website is granted for the user’s personal use only, and materials may not be reproduced in any edited form. Any other reproduction, transmission, performance, display or editing of these materials by any means mechanical or electronic without the express written permission of the Company is strictly prohibited.
