This information may include, but is not limited to, your contact information (for example, your name, email address, billing and shipping addresses and phone number) and your credit card information. 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 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.

We do not require you to transmit credit card data over the internet for purchases made on our website, rather a representative from our company will contact via phone to confirm your order, answer any questions and arrange for payment. We protect your information offline and only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in an off-line secure environment. While we implement these and other security measures on our site, please note that 100% security is not always possible. You play a role in protecting your information as well.
