WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We may collect the following information:
- Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”):
- Aggregate and Anonymous Information (“AAI”):
- User Activity Information (“UAI”):
This is information that identifies you personally, such as your name, email address, account password, mailing/shipping address, and payment card or payment account information. We do not collect PII from you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. We ask for and collect your PII when you engage in an identification activity on the Site, such as creating an account, making a purchase, submitting a request or inquiry to us, etc. (each, an “Identification Activity”). Whether or not to disclose PII is completely your choice. However, without providing PII you will not be able to engage in or complete an Identification Activity. You must be at least 18 years of age to engage in an Identification Activity on the Site.
This refers to information that does not identify you personally. For example, we and/or our service providers collect anonymous group data (demographics, interests and preferences, etc.) about users of the Site, as well as traffic data pertaining to the use of the Site. Moreover, we may combine UAI (as defined below) about you and other users of the Site to generate aggregate information that reflects activities, habits, preferences, interests, etc. about our users as a group. In addition, we may take PII and make it non-personally identifiable, such as by aggregating your information with information about other individuals, or by removing personally-identifiable elements (such as names) so as to “anonymize” or “de-personalize” your information.
NOTE: To the extent we use UAI in a manner that identifies a user individually (e.g., if we link or associate such information with a particular user account), such information will be treated as PII. Otherwise, UAI will be treated as AAI.
WHAT WE DO WITH THE INFORMATION
The following describes how we use and share information (including PII) collected from and about users of the Site:
- To provide, operate, manage, maintain and improve the Site:
- To communicate with our users:
- To protect our rights, etc.:
- To complete a merger, sale of business or assets, etc.:
This includes using PII to enable, administer and manage users’ Identification Activities.

NOTE: no method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure and, therefore, we and our service vendor cannot guarantee the absolute security of our users’ account information.
