Information You Provide. We receive and store information you enter. For example,
when you search for or buy a product or service, or when you supply information
such as your address, phone number or credit card. You can choose not to provide
certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of some of
our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding
to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, improving our website, and
communicating with you. We respect your privacy and do not tolerate spam and will
never sell, rent, lease or give away your information (name, address, email, etc.)
to any third party. Please see the "opt-in/opt-out” selection in Section

Every computer has an IP (Internet Protocol) address. IP addresses of computers

- How Do We Use Your Information?
Customized Shopping. We use your information to better serve you by providing a
customized shopping experience. As noted above, you may "opt-out” of
this customization, or even visit and shop anonymously.
We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples
include delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, and processing credit
card payments. They have access to personal information needed to perform their
functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
- Special Offers.
We may send you special offers from time to time, unless you choose to "opt-out”
of receiving such offers. In addition, we may also send you special offers from
other companies. Again, you may "opt-out”. If we send you offers from
other businesses, we do not share your personal information with them. The offers
come directly through us. Please see the "opt-in/opt-out” selection at
the end of this policy.
- Business Transfers.
As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores or assets. In
such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business
assets. Also, in the unlikely event that we are acquired, customer information will
be one of the transferred assets.
- Law Enforcement.
If we receive a lawful court order to release account or other personal information
then we will comply with the law. We will also release information when necessary
to protect the life, safety or property of others. This includes exchanging information
with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
- How Do We Protect the Security of Your Information?
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.
- We limit access to your information on a "need to know” basis.
We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming
an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate
credit card company during order processing.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password
and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
No system can guarantee absolute security, just as the finest lock can not guarantee
physical security. However, we take every reasonable precaution to assure that your
data is secure.

this site only with involvement of a parent or guardian.
