PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
When you visit our Site, certain information is automatically collected about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, access times, time zone, and the webpage, search terms, or link that referred you to our Site. Additionally, as you browse our Site, we may collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, and information about how you interact with our Site. We call this information “Device Information.”
We collect Device Information using the following technologies:
– “Cookies” are data files that are stored on a Site visitor’s device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit https://www.allaboutcookies.org.
– “Log files” track actions occurring on our Site, and collect data including the Site visitor’s IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.
– “Web beacons,” “tags,” and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how a Site’s visitors browse a Site.
Additionally when you make a purchase or attempt to make a purchase through our Site, we collect certain information from you which you directly provide, including your name, billing address, shipping address, payment information (including credit card numbers, email address, and phone number). We refer to this information as “Order Information.”
Other information that we collect from you occurs when you directly provide us with information, input submissions, other contact details not provided as part of a purchase transaction, social media handles, links, opinions, requests, tips, or any other information submitted when you voluntarily choose to complete a survey, provide feedback, post messages, post reviews, email us, correspond with us, text us, or message us. Also, Other Information includes when you interact by providing such information on any of our services, be it website, social media apps, or other presences which we maintain, fill out any other types of forms, or sign-up for any offers, marketing, newsletters, or other communication not mentioned above. In general but not in a completely strict sense, information that you voluntarily provide which does not fall into the Device Information category or the Order Information category, is referred to as “Other Information.”
HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
We use your personal information in a number of ways and it can be divided, while not strictly, into the following categories:
As a customer, we use your personal information to fulfill any orders placed through our Site, including processing your payment information and arranging for shipping, as well as sending you related information, including purchase confirmations, invoices, updates, security alerts, recall notices, and product support. We also use this information to maintain and administer your account. We may use your personal information to provide you with customer service, to improve upon our service, and to respond to your comments and questions.
Services we use for data storage, data management, and for marketing/advertising, which may store your data, include:
Microsoft – OneDrive cloud storage
Google – Google Drive cloud storage
WP Engine – Website and databases
HubSpot – Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platform
Meta Business Suite – Facebook and Instagram marketing/advertising platform
Data including your personal information which is stored on-site is both by password and physically secured with a full-service monitored alarm system and is backed-up to these storage services listed above.
We securely store and process your information with what is recognized as strong passwords. We most commonly process personal information in the United States, and on occasion in Canada, the Caribbean, and Europe. We store your information in the cloud which by structural nature may be stored globally, as our cloud data services maintain a global presence and may employ globally redundant backup storage facilities.
We use your personal information to augment our analytics, to create and assess our marketing and advertising campaigns, and with our advertising partners and advertising platforms, to improve our Site and online presences, and to personalize and make relevant to you our product offerings and communications. You may opt out from any of our communications at any time. If you would like to opt-out from future marketing communications, at the bottom of every marketing email we send is a link you can follow to open your personal marketing preferences page.
As a visitor to our site, your personal information may be used to screen for potential safety concerns, risks, or fraud to protect our business.
We use your personal information to process and deliver contest or sweepstakes entries and prizes where applicable.
CREDIT CARD INFORMATION
We do not store the credit card information of our retail customers. Your purchase is processed through the industry standard method of using a payment gateway or services such as PayPal and similar, who do not relay or share your credit card numbers with us. We only receive a confirmation that a purchase has been successfully (or unsuccessfully) transacted, after which we fulfill your order. Funds from your order are transferred to us by the payment gateway. Our payment gateway is Level 3 PCI-DSS compliant, the most secure.
SHARING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We may share your Personal Information with our partner companies so that they may offer you their products and services. You have the right to request that we discontinue sharing your personal information with our partner companies at any time. We may also share your information with our marketing and advertising partners.
