We respect your privacy. We do not sell, trade or share our customers’ personal information (such as name, address, telephone number or credit card number) with any third parties, except when necessary to complete an order (for example, names must be provided for personalization) or to ship your order (for example, our shipping vendor must be provided with the recipient’s name and address). In those cases the only information provided is the information necessary for that specific task. We do not authorize any of these third parties to use your information for any purpose other than for its intended purpose. We do, however, collect any personal information that you provide us (for example, when you register and order) in an effort to identify our clients’ product preferences, to improve your shopping experience and to communicate with you about our products, services, and promotions. If you do not wish for us to use this information for these purposes, please let us know by contacting us.
When you visit our site but do not register, place an order, or sign up for our mailing list, we will not receive any personal information from you. However, we do track the internet address of the domains from which people visit us and analyze this data for trends and statistics, but the individual user remains anonymous.
