We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email, web forms or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order.
In some instances, we may use an outside shipping company to ship orders, or a partner company to assemble/package and ship products. These companies do not share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond filling your order.
We use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site.

Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites.

From time-to-time our site may request 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, but is not limited to, contact information (such as name and shipping address), 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 and/or our products.
We take our responsibility to protect your security very seriously and we do take precautions to keep your information safe and secure. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
In the event that we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data) your information is encrypted and transmitted to us 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.
