HOW WE COLLECT INFORMATION

Information Provided by your Web Browser

This Site provides information about us and the products and services we offer. You do not need to provide us with any personal information if you simply want to browse through this Site and learn more about our stores, our products and our services. Like many other websites, we may record information that your web browser routinely shares, such as your browser type, browser language, software and hardware attributes, the date and time of your visit, the website from which you came, the geographical location of the Internet Protocol address and the pages on this Site that you visit. This will generally be anonymous data that we collect on an aggregate basis. We will not try to associate anonymous data with the personal information that you provide to us, except to investigate apparent fraud or a threat to this Site, our business or our users.

Personal Information that you Provide

We may also collect personal information that you choose to provide to us on a voluntary basis. When we ask for your personal information, it is so that we can provide a product or service to you and communicate with you about those products and services. For example, you can register on this Site by providing us with your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address, and then elect to receive marketing communications or purchase products from us. It will always be your choice whether to provide your personal information in order to take advantage of these features.

We may also offer certain social networking features on this Site, such as the opportunity to post comments or opinions about our products and services. If you choose to submit your comments or opinions, keep in mind that these will be available to the general public and are not subject to any privacy.

Additional Information Collected from Mobile Devices

We may also operate a version of this Site specifically designed to work with mobile devices. The mobile Site may include a feature that uses geographic location information provided by your mobile device to identify stores in your vicinity. We do not collect or store your geographic information except to temporarily provide this service.

WHAT WE DO WITH THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We will generally use the information that we collect to help us operate this Site, to provide requested products and services, to help us understand our customers and their preferences, and to market products and services to you in which we believe you may be interested. The following provides a more specific discussion of our uses and disclosures of the information that we collect. We will seek your consent before we use your personal information for any other purposes.

Your Contact Information

When you provide us with your contact information, we will use that information to provide services related to this Site. For example, if you purchase products from this Site, we will use your mailing address to ship your order. We may also send you e-mail messages confirming your order or reporting on the status of your order.

If you register on this Site, we give you the option to add your e-mail address to one or more marketing lists. You may change your preferences or opt out of all e-mails at any time by clicking on the "unsubscribe" link found at the bottom of each e-mail.

We maintain a database about our customers and Site users that allows us to (i) analyze and monitor consumer and customer activity, (ii) promote and support our products and services, and (iii) develop a knowledge base regarding our web site users and customers.

We may combine the individually identifiable information that we collect from this Site with information collected through any customer loyalty programs that we may run from time to time. For example, if you have signed up to receive e-mail messages, we may use information from the customer loyalty program to deliver offers or coupons tailored to your needs.

Payment for Services

If you purchase any products through this Site, like any other retailer we will have to provide your credit card information to our credit card processor and authenticator for payment purposes, and your name and address to the company that ships our merchandise.

Information Shared with our Business Partners

To improve the products and services offered, we may use business partners to help us design and operate this Site or provide other services to support this Site. For example, we may hire a company to run certain website applications, help us fulfill orders, process credit card payments, or help us analyze our data. Unless otherwise indicated on this Site, if we allow our business partners to access the personal information we collect, it will be for limited purposes and in compliance with this Privacy Policy. We may give you the option to have your information shared with vendors whose goods we carry so that they can send you coupons or other promotional information in which you are interested.

Statistical Analyses if Data

We use Google Analytics to help us gather statistical information about the visitors to this Site and how they use this Site. We also use Google Analytics to provide us additional information about the users to this Site, such as their interests, hobbies, and preferences, based upon information gathered by Google through the use of cookies and browser information. However, all information we gather via Google Analytics will be gathered on an anonymous, aggregate basis but will not associate this data with personally identifiable data. We use this information to gain a better understanding of the visitors to this Site and to improve this Site and product offerings. We reserve the right to license or sell aggregate information about the visitors to this Site, but this information will not be individually identifiable. Depending on which type of browser and device that you use, you may have the ability to control the type of information that Google Analytics uses. If you would like to learn more about Google Analytics, including how to opt out of it, visit https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Business Operations, Law Enforcement and Legal Actions

We may release your information without prior notice when we believe it is appropriate to prevent fraud; to comply with law or to cooperate with law enforcement activity or other governmental request; to respond to subpoenas, court orders or administrative agency requests for information; to enforce our policies; to protect the rights, property and safety of our business and of others; or when required or otherwise permitted by law. For example, we may share information with law enforcement to reduce the risk of fraud or if someone uses or attempts to use this Site for illegal reasons. If there is a sale or merger of the company, division or business unit that operates this Site, we may also transfer the information we have collected in connection with such sale or merger.

USE OF TRACKING TECHNOLOGY, INCLUDING COOKIES

As is commonly done on websites, we may use cookies and similar technology to keep track of our users and the services they have elected. A "cookie" is a small data file that a website may send to your browser and which may then be stored on your hard drive. If you are simply browsing on this Site, the cookies that we use last only about as long as your session on this Site; but if you have created a user name and account, we will also use cookies that remain on your computer between visits so that when you return to this Site we can remember who you are and your preferences. We may allow business partners who provide services to this Site to place cookies on your computer that assist us in analyzing usage data. We do not allow these business partners to collect your personal information from this Site except as may be necessary for the services that they provide.

You can manage these cookies. For example, you can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. If you disable cookies, however, it may interfere with the functionality of this Site and you may not be able to use all of this Site's features.

We may also use web beacons or similar technology to help us track the effectiveness of our communications. A web beacon (also known as an action tag, a clear gif or pixel tag) is a pixel image embedded in a website page used to transparently collect information. For example, we may use a web beacon to count the number of visits to the pages of this Site. If you have signed up to receive any of our e-mail newsletters, we use similar technology to count how many recipients have opened the message and clicked on one of its links.

We may offer a version of this Site specifically designed to work with a mobile device. If so, we may store information relevant to your use of the mobile site on your device's local storage.

We use third party advertising services to place our advertisements on other websites. If you click on one of these ads, the company that placed the ad may use cookies, web beacons, or other tracking technology to gather statistics on the effectiveness of our advertisements, to track your movement across websites, and to serve you advertisements targeted to your interests. We do not share any of your personal information with these advertising services. You can learn more about interest-based advertising and opt out of such advertising from certain companies at aboutads.info.

HOW WE PROTECT YOUR DATA

We use commercially reasonable means to protect the integrity of this Site and limit access to your personal information. We limit access to your personal information to those who have a legitimate need to use the information. If you have set up a user name and profile, you should be sure to protect your user ID and password to prevent others from being able to access this Site in your name. We cannot provide absolute assurances against, and will not be liable for, breaches of confidentiality due to system failures or unauthorized access by third parties. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us by e-mail and you do so at your own risk.

THIRD PARTY WEBSITES

This Site may contain links to other websites operated by companies that are not affiliated with us. Also, you may have come to this Site from a website that is not operated by us.
