(1) TYPES OF INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT

Site registrations: You may be asked to create an account using a user ID and password in order to take advantage of certain features the Site may choose to offer, including, but not limited to subscription based services.

Newsletter sign-up: If you sign up to receive our newsletter, we will collect your email address.

Promotion registrations: We require all users and/or customers wishing to participate in any of our contests, drawings, sweepstakes, or promotions (collectively, “Promotions”) to complete a participant registration form. During this registration process we generate and collect certain personal information, such as first name, last name, zip code, phone number, age and email address. Winners of Promotions will be required to provide additional personal information such as a shipping address and telephone number. Note that we may ask your permission or otherwise require you as part of the Promotion official rules to allow us to post publicly some of your information on the Site, such as on a winner's page, in the event you win a Promotion. Except as required by applicable law or set forth in the Promotion official rules, we will not post your information without your permission. In some instances, a third party advertiser or sponsor may operate or host a Promotion on the Site, and collect your information. In those cases, where we are not the operator or host of the contest or sweepstakes, we have no control over the information collected and accordingly urge you to review the advertiser's or sponsor's privacy policy applicable to the Promotion before participating.

Product and/or service purchases: In order to complete the purchase of a product and/or service, an online credit card transaction is required. During this process we may collect certain personal information, such as customer's first and last name, the first and last name of the credit card owner, credit card billing address, credit card number, credit card expiration date, customer's shipping address, phone number, and email address. We refer to this information as “order information”.

Personal correspondence: If a customer sends us personal correspondence, such as emails or letters, or submits inquiries to our customer service email or leaves messages on our customer service phone line, we may collect such information into a file specific to such customer. Usage information: When you use our Site or interact with our emails, we collect usage information, such as how you and your device interact with our Site, through cookies and other similar technologies.

We also may collect IP addresses and/or click-stream data for purposes of system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers and sponsors. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your device whenever you access the Internet. Our computers identify your device by its IP address. When you request Web pages from the Site, our computers log your IP address.

Click-stream data is information collected by our computers when you request Web pages from the Site. Click-stream data may include such information as the page served, the time, the source of the request, the type of browser making the request, the preceding page view and other such non-personal information. When analyzed, this data helps us analyze how visitors arrive at the Site, what type of content is most popular, what type of visitors in the aggregate are interested in particular kinds of content and advertising, and the like.

Surveys or Voting: From time-to-time we may request personal information from you via surveys or voting polls. Participation is voluntary and you will have the opportunity to decide whether or not to disclose information. At times, you may have to register to vote or to take part in a survey.

(2) HOW IS PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED?

When you visit the Site, we collect information you voluntarily provide to us. For example, when you make a purchase or attempt to make a purchase through the Site, we collect your order information.

We also automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “device information”. We collect device information using the following technologies:

  • “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, see the Cookies section below.
  • “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your 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 you browse the Site.

Third-party payment processing. We use a third party payment processor to process payments made via the Site. In connection with the processing of such payments, we do not maintain financial information such as credit card numbers on our internal databases. Rather, all such information is provided directly to our third party processor, currently Authorize.Net, whose use of your personal information is governed by their own privacy policy, which may be viewed at https://usa.visa.com/legal/privacy-policy.html.

(3) HOW DO WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT?

Generally, our use of your personal information depends on the purpose for which you provided it. For example, if you provide personal information in the context of a Promotion operated through the Site, we use your personal information to contact you for winner notification, prize delivery confirmation or other related purposes. We use the order information that we collect generally to fulfill any orders placed through the Site (including processing your payment information, arranging for shipping, and providing you with invoices and/or order confirmations). Additionally, we may use this order information to:

  • Communicate with you;
  • Screen our orders for potential risk, fraud, billing, administrative matters or notices;
  • When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising related to our products or services; and
  • Resolve disputes and troubleshoot problems.

We internally use personal information about our customers to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze Site usage, to improve our content and product offerings and to customize our Site's content and layout. We believe these uses allow us to improve our Site and provide better service to our customers.

We use the device information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).
