Our Use of Cookies
Our website uses cookies. A cookie is a small piece of data or a text file that is downloaded to
your computer or mobile device when you access certain websites. Cookies may contain text
that can be read by the web server that delivered the cookie to you. The text contained in the
cookie generally consists of a sequence of letters and numbers that uniquely identify your
computer or mobile device; it may contain other information as well. By agreeing to accept our use of cookies, you are giving us permission to place some or all of the cookies described below on your device.

Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are necessary for proper functioning of the website, such as displaying content,
logging in, validating your session, responding to your request for services, and other functions.
Most web browsers can be set to disable the use of cookies. However, if you disable these
cookies, you may not be able to access features on our website correctly or at all.
Performance Cookies
These cookies collect information about the use of the website, such as pages visited, traffic
sources, users’ interests, content management, and other website measurements.
Functional Cookies
These cookies enable the website to remember a user’s choices – such as their language, user
name, and other personal choices – while using the website. They can also be used to deliver
services, such as letting a user make a blog post, listen to audio, or watch videos on the
Media Cookies
These cookies can be used to improve a website’s performance and provide special features
and content. They can be placed by third parties who provide services to us or by our company.
Advertising or Targeting Cookies
These cookies are usually placed and used by advertising companies to develop a profile of your
browsing interests and serve advertisements on other websites that are related to your
interests. You will see less advertising if you disable these cookies.
Session Cookies
These cookies allow websites to link the actions of a user during a browser session. They may
be used for a variety of purposes, such as remembering what a user has put in their shopping
cart as they browse a website. Session cookies also permit users to be recognized as they
navigate a website so that any item or page changes they make are remembered from page to
page. Session cookies expire after a browser session; thus, they are not stored long term.

These cookies are stored on a user’s device in between browser sessions, which allows the
user’s preferences or actions across a site (or, in some cases, across different sites) to be

you may not be able to access features on our website correctly or at all.

Web Beacons
We may also use a technology called web beacons to collect general information about your
use of our website and your use of special promotions or newsletters. The information we
collect by web beacons allows us to statistically monitor the number of people who open our
emails. Web beacons also help us understand the behavior of our customers and visitors.

Google Ad and Content Network Privacy Policy
Third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user’s past visits to
our website. Google’s use of the DoubleClick cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to
our users based on their visits to our site and/or other sites on the Internet. Users may opt out
of the use of the DoubleClick cookie for interest-based advertising by visiting

Google Analytics Privacy Policy
Our website uses Google Analytics to collect information about the use of our site. Google
Analytics collects information such as how often users visit our site, what pages they visit, and
what other sites they have used prior to coming to our site. We use the information we get
from Google Analytics to improve our site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address
assigned to you on the date you visit our site, not your name or other identifying information.
We do not combine the information collected using Google Analytics with PII. Although Google
Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the
next time you visit our site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. You can prevent
Google Analytics from using your information by opting out at this link:

Google Remarketing
Why am I seeing ads by Google for products I’ve viewed?
Our website uses a remarketing advertising service. Our remarketing service is provided by
Google and other companies that show our ads on websites across the Internet. With
remarketing you may see ads for our products you have previously looked at. As an example,
suppose you visit a website that sells computers, but you do not buy a computer on your first
visit to that website. The website’s owner might like to encourage you to revisit his/her site and
buy a computer by showing you his/her ads again on other websites that you visit. We use
remarketing for similar purposes, so you may see advertisements for our products as you
search the Internet. For this to happen Google or other remarketing providers will read a cookie
that is already in your browser, or they place a cookie in your browser when you visit our site or
other sites using remarketing. (This can only happen if your browser is set to let it happen).
You can opt out of Google’s use of cookies and remarketing at this link: or you opt out using the Network
Advertising Initiative opt out page at:!/

Facebook Remarketing
Our website uses Facebook’s remarketing advertising service. With remarketing, you may see
ads for our products which you have previously looked at when you use Facebook. For this to
happen Facebook uses a Custom Audience Pixel that is activated when a visitor lands on a
webpage and a unique “cookie” is placed in their browser. To opt out of Facebook remarketing

through your account or by sending us an email with your request to: [email protected]

Sharing Information With Affiliates and Other Third Parties
We do not sell, rent, or otherwise provide your PII to third parties for marketing purposes.
However, for data aggregation purposes we may use your nonpersonal information (NPI),
which might be sold to other parties at our discretion. Any such data aggregation would not
contain any of your PII. We may provide your PII to third-party service providers we hire to
provide services to us. These third-party service providers include but are not limited to:
payment processors, web analytics companies (like Google Analytics), call centers, data
management services, help desk providers, shopping cart and email service providers, and

law, or other legal process; (b) necessary to assist law enforcement officials or government
enforcement agencies; (c) necessary to investigate violations of or otherwise enforce our Legal
Terms; (d) necessary to protect us from legal action or claims from third parties, including you
and/or other users or members; or (e) necessary to protect the legal rights, personal/real
property, or personal safety of our company, users, employees, and affiliates.

Disclosures to Successors
If our business is sold or merges in whole or in part with another business that would become
responsible for providing the website to you, we retain the right to transfer your PII to the new
business. The new business would retain the right to use your PII according to the terms of this
privacy policy as well as to any changes to this privacy policy as instituted by the new business.
We also retain the right to transfer your PII if our company files for bankruptcy and some or all
of our assets are sold to another individual or business.

Community Discussion Boards
Our website may offer the ability for users to communicate with each other through online
community discussion boards. We do not filter or monitor what is posted on such discussion
boards. If you choose to post on these discussion boards, you should use care when exposing
any PII, as such information is not protected by our privacy policy nor are we liable if you
choose to disclose your PII through such postings.

legally liable for the actions of our users, we will remove any postings about which we are
notified, if such postings violate the privacy rights of others.

Some web browsers have settings that enable you to request that our website not track your
movement within our website. Our website does not obey such settings when transmitted to

your browser by referring to your browser’s user manual.

your risk. It is your responsibility to check the privacy policies of these websites to see how they
treat your PII.

Protecting Children’s Privacy
Even though our website is not designed for use by anyone under the age of 13 (child), we
realize that a child under the age of 13 may attempt to access our website. We do not
knowingly collect PII from children under the age of 13. If you are a parent or guardian and
believe that your child is using our website, please contact us. Before we remove any
information, we may ask for proof of identification to prevent malicious removal of account
information. If we discover that a child is accessing our website, we will delete his/her
information within a reasonable period of time. You acknowledge that we do not verify the age
of our users nor do we have any liability to do so.

Our Email Policy

will not sell, rent, or trade your email address to any unaffiliated third party without your
permission except in the sale or transfer of our business.

Our Security Policy
We have built our website using industry-standard encryption and authentication tools to
protect the security of your PII. We also use technologies such as secure routers and firewalls to
help protect your PII. When we collect your credit card information through our website, we
will encrypt it before it travels over the Internet using industry-standard technology for
conducting secure online transactions. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee against the loss or
misuse of your PII or secure data transmission over the Internet because of its nature.
We strongly urge you to protect any password you may have for our website and to not share it
with anyone. You should always log out of our website when you finish using it, especially if you

You may have to provide a credit card to buy products and services from our website. We use
third-party billing services and have no control over these services. We use our commercially
reasonable efforts to make sure your credit card number is kept strictly confidential by using
only third-party billing services that use industry-standard encryption technology to protect
your credit card number from unauthorized use. However, you understand and agree that we
are in no way responsible for any misuse of your credit card number.

International Data Transfers
Information that we collect from you may be stored and processed in and transferred between
any of the countries in which we operate. For European customers and users, your PII may be
transferred outside the European Union for us to provide the services and information you
request from us. Wherever we transfer, process or store your PII, we will take reasonable steps
to protect it. We will use the information we collect from you in accordance with this policy. By using our website or services, you agree to the transfers of your PII described within this
section. Also, PII you post on our website for publication may be available worldwide by means of the
Internet. We cannot prevent the use or misuse of such information by others.

We reserve the right to change this privacy policy at any time. If our company decides to
change this privacy policy, we will post those changes on our website so that our users and
customers are always aware of what information we collect, use, and disclose. If at any time we
decide to disclose or use your PII in a method different from that specified at the time it was
collected, we will provide advance notice by email (sent to the email address on file in your
account). Otherwise we will use and disclose our users’ and customers’ PII in agreement with
