Personal Information Our Company Collects and How It Is
Our company collects information in different ways from Visitors and Members who access the
various parts of our Services and the network of Web sites accessible through our Service. We
use this information primarily to provide a customized experience as you use our Products and
Services and generally, do not share this information with third parties. However, we may
disclose personal information collected if we have received your permission beforehand or in
very special circumstances, such as when we believe that such disclosure is required by law or
other special cases described below.
Members may be asked to provide certain personal information when they sign up for our
Products or Services including name, address, telephone number, billing information (such as a
credit card number), and the type of personal computer being used to access the Services. The
personal information collected from Members during the registration process is used to manage
each Member’s account (such as for billing purposes). This information is not shared with third
parties, unless specifically stated otherwise or in special circumstances.
However, in instances where our company and a partner jointly promote our Services, we may
provide the partner certain personal information, such as the name, address, and username of
persons who subscribed to the Services as a result of the joint promotion for the sole purpose of
allowing us and the partner to assess the results of the promotion.
In this instance, personal information may not be used by the partner for any other purpose. We
may also generate non-identifying and aggregate profiles from personal information Members
provide during registration (such as the total number, but not the names, of Members). As
explained in more detail below, we may use this aggregated and non-identifying information to
sell advertisements that appear on the Services.
Our Company Partners and Sponsors:
Some products and services may be offered to Visitors and Members in conjunction with an
affiliate, independent contractor seller or non-affiliated partner. To provide Visitors and
Members some of these products and services, the partner may need to collect and maintain
personal information. In these instances, you will be notified before any such data is collected or
transferred and may decide not to use that particular service or feature.
Additionally, our partners may have advertisements or co-branded Web Pages that are
cosponsored by an affiliate, independent contractor seller, or non-affiliated partner. Our company
may share non-identifying and aggregate information (except as described above), but not
personal information, with such partners in order to administer the co-branded products or
Our company may display our online advertisements. In those cases we share aggregated and
non-identifying information about our Visitors and Members collected through the registration
process as well as through online surveys and promotions with these advertisers.
Additionally, in some instances, we use this aggregated and non-identifying information to
deliver tailored advertisements or joint ventures. For instance, an advertiser or joint venture
company tells us the audience they want to reach and provides us an advertisement tailored to the
audience. Based upon the aggregated and non-identifying information we have collected, we
may then display or send the advertisement to the intended audience. Our company does not
share personal information about its Visitors or Members with these advertisers or joint venture
Responses to Email Inquiries:
When Visitors or Members send email inquiries to our company, the return email address is used
to answer the email inquiry we receive. Our company does not use the return email address for
any other purpose and does not share the return email address with any third party.
Voluntary Customer Surveys:
We may periodically conduct both business and individual customer surveys. We encourage our
customers to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that
helps us to improve the types of products and services we offer and how we provide them to you.
Your personal information and responses will remain strictly confidential, even if the survey is
conducted by a third party. Participation in our customer surveys is voluntary.
We may take the information we receive from individuals responding to our Customer Surveys
and combine (or aggregate) it with the responses of other customers we may have to create
broader, generic responses to the survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies,
education, employment, industry sector, or other demographic information). We then use the
aggregated information to improve the quality of our services to you and to develop new services
and products. This aggregated, non-personally identifying information may be shared with third
It is our company’s policy not to use or share the personal information about Visitors of
Members in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an
opportunity to opt out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
However, we may disclose personal information about Visitors or Members or information
regarding your use of the Services or Web sites accessible through our Services, for any reason
if, in our sole discretion, we believe that it is reasonable to do so, including: credit agencies;
collection agencies; merchant database agencies; law enforcement, or to satisfy laws, such as the
Electronic Communications Privacy Act, the Child Online Privacy Act, regulations, or
governmental or legal requests for such information; to disclose information that is necessary to
identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Acceptable
Use Policy or Terms Of Service, or other user policies; to operate the Services properly; or to
protect our company and our Members.
“Cookies” and How Our Company Uses Them:
A “cookie” is a small data file that can be placed on your hard drive when you visit certain Web
statistical purposes to improve the products and services we provide and to manage our
If you are a Visitor or Member we may use a cookie to save your settings and to provide
customizable and personalized services. These cookies do not enable third parties to access any
of your customer information. Additionally, be aware that if you visit other Web sites where you
are prompted to log in or that are customizable, you may be required to accept cookies.
Advertisers and partners may also use their own cookies. We do not control use of these cookies
and expressly disclaim responsibility for information collected through them.
Our Company Commitment to Children’s Privacy:
Protecting children’s privacy is especially important to us. It is our policy to comply with the
Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and all other applicable laws. Therefore we
restrict our Web site to persons eighteen years or older.
At some Web sites, you can purchase products and services or register to receive materials, such
as a newsletter, catalog or new product and service updates. In many cases, you may be asked to
provide contact information, such as your name, address, email address, phone number, and
credit/debit card information.
If you complete an order for someone else, such as an online gift order sent directly to a
recipient, you may be asked to provide information about the recipient, such as the recipient’s
name, address, and phone number. Our company has no control over the third parties’ use of any
personal information you provide when placing such an order. Please exercise care when doing
If you order services or products directly from our company we will use the personal information
you provide only to process that order. We do not share this information with outside parties

Our Company’s Commitment to Data Security:
Services and Web sites we sponsor have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse,
and alteration of the information under our control. While we make every effort to ensure the
integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security
measures will prevent third-party “hackers” from illegally obtaining this information.

Revisions to This Policy:
Our company reserves the right to revise, amend, or modify this policy, our Terms Of Service
agreement, and our other policies and agreements at any time and in any manner, by updating
SHIPPING: We ship all items usually within 1 business day of an order placement once the
funds have cleared in our account. If there is a general delay happening on our end it will be
clearly stated on our website. We ship through USPS, and packages can be tracked through their
website. Orders over $300 will automatically be shipped via priority mail with a signature
requirement unless otherwise specified. Orders under $300 will be shipped via first class, with no
signature required. Overnight shipping is not an option on the website, but we can accommodate
for this over the phone if need be. We can add or remove a signature requirement to packages
LOST PACKAGES: If a package gets lost in transit (very rare, though it does happen) we will
absolutely re-ship the order. If the tracking information, however, says the package was
‘delivered,’ then this means USPS successfully delivered the package to the given address and
our job has been effectively accomplished. If it says delivered, yet it’s lost anyway, we ask that
you check with housemates or family to see if they received the package without telling the
intended customer. This scenario happens fairly often. Wind storms can also cause the package
to roll over into a bush or off a front porch. USPS will not mark an order as delivered if it hasn’t
been, so please look carefully.
PACKAGE SENT TO WRONG ADDRESS: If a package is sent to the wrong address, and the
order was placed online by a customer than the customer is responsible for the cost of re-
shipping the item. We will re-ship the order once the original package has returned to us. So
please, when ordering, make sure your shipping address is 100% accurate, as making any
mistake could significantly delay the delivery. When placing an order over the phone, we will
read back your shipping address (and other ordering information) and double check that it is
100% correct every time.
