This Privacy Notice also does not apply to information we may obtain from other sources about you.

Why We Collect Information

We collect personal information because it helps us provide and improve our products and services and your shopping experience, and to allow you to order products on or through the Website. In addition, your personal information helps us communicate to you our latest services, special offers, and information and events about which you might like to hear. We also may correlate your personal information with information from other sources. For example, we may cross-check the personal information you provide to us against information that might be otherwise available through other entities in order to prevent or detect fraud.

How We Collect Information

We collect information in three primary ways:

  1. You Give Us Information: We collect information from you when you submit it to us through our Website, via social media (i.e., Facebook®, Instagram®, Pinterest®, YouTube®), via e-mail, when you provide it to us on a phone call or when you otherwise provide it to us in person or in writing.  We also collect information from you when you contact our customer service.
  2. We Collect Information Automatically: We automatically collect certain types of information when you visit our Website. For example, we automatically collect various types of technical information when you use our Website and as otherwise described in this Privacy Notice.
  3. We Collect Information from Other Sources: We may obtain information about you from outside sources.  For example, we may obtain commercially available information about you from third parties or purchase e-mail lists from third parties for advertising and marketing purposes.   We may also receive information from third-parties who provide services for us through web-beacons and other technologies as otherwise discussed in this Privacy Notice.

Please do not supply the following to us:

  • Any other person's personal data, unless the Company explicitly asks you to do so;
  • Any categories of your personal data that have not been explicitly requested by the Company;
  • Any confidential, proprietary, secret or legally protected information which you are not explicitly requested by the Company to provide; and
  • Any confidential, proprietary, secret or legally protected information which are under any legal obligation to not provide to or share with the Company.

What Information We Collect

We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal data:

  • Information required by the Company to for you to open an account with us, for us to provide and deliver our services and products to you, including to fulfill orders you place (including, temporarily, credit card or other payment information), respond to your inquiries, and address concerns you may have.
  • Information that you provide seeking employment through the Website.
  • Information about your visits to and use of this Website, and information you provide to us via the Website.
  • Information you post and about your visits to and use/access/review/post to our social media pages on Facebook®, Instagram®, Pinterest® and YouTube®.

Even if you do not submit personal information through the Website or our social media sites (but visit same), we may gather navigational information about where visitors go on the Website or our social media pages and information about the technical efficiencies of our Website and services (i.e., time to connect to the Website, time to download pages, etc.). Collecting this information allows us to see which areas of our Website and social media pages are most visited and helps us better understand the user experience. Additionally, collecting this information helps us improve the quality of the Website by recognizing and delivering more of the features, areas, and services our visitors prefer. In this process of gathering information, we may collect personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information (for example, domain type, browser type and version, service provider and IP address, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and click-stream data).

We may also create and use electronic records to compile statistics about how our visitors collectively interact with our Website and social media pages.

Use of Cookies:

Cookies are bits of electronic information that a website may transfer to a visitor’s computer to identify specific information about the visitor’s visits to the website.  The Website may use a browser feature known as a cookie, which assigns a unique identification to your computer. Cookies are typically stored on your computer’s hard drive and are used to help track clicks as you go through the pages within our Website.  We may also use cookies to tell us whether you have previously visited the Website. We also use cookies which may be set by third-parties with whom we have entered into agreements which may enable us to obtain analytics information about the use of our Website.  You can set your browser not to accept cookies or to notify you when you are sent a cookie, giving you the opportunity to decide whether or not to accept it.  You may also use commonly available tools in your browser to remove cookies which may have been placed onto your computer.  To learn more about cookies, please visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.

The above websites and cookies may change from time to time as we use different vendors or services providers to provide some or all of the services offered or provided by the above services and websites, or additional services we decide to include.  While we periodically update our list of such vendors and service providers, the above list may not be complete at any given time.

Managing Cookies

Use of Web Beacons, Clear-GIFs, Pixel Tags and JavaScript:

We also may use "pixel tags" (also called “action pixels,” "web beacons" or "clear gifs") and/or JavaScript plug-ins, placed on our Website and in our emails to you. These web beacons and plug-ins are small graphic images (typically that you cannot see) or code on a website or in an email message which are used for such things as recording webpages and advertisements clicked-on by a user, or for tracking the performance of email marketing campaigns.  These devices help us analyze our users’ online behavior and measure the effectiveness of our website and our marketing.  We may also work with third-party service providers that help us track, collect, and analyze this information.  Third-party entities with whom we have agreements may place these devices on the website and/or in emails to use information obtained from them such as pages viewed, items purchased, emails opened and items upon which you may click in emails.  These third-party providers may also place cookies onto your computer. Those third-party cookies may enable us to obtain aggregate demographic information and user statistics about you and your preferences from these third-party sources as well as our information we have about you.

Device Identifiers:

A “device identifier” is a mechanism whereby we may automatically collect an IP address, mobile advertising identifier or other unique user identifier information for the computer, mobile or other device being used to access the Website or third-party websites to which we may link for advertising purposes.  A device identifier attaches a number that is automatically assigned to your computer or device that identifies it, similar to a cookie.  We may use the device identifier to administer the Website, help diagnose problems, analyze trends, track a user on the Website, identify a user shipping cart or purchase preferences, deliver advertising or obtain general demographic data.  Most computers and mobile devices will allow you to turn off, block or delete device identifiers.

Server Logs:

A web “server log” is a record of activity created by a computer that delivers certain webpages to your browser.  Certain activities that you perform on our Website may record information in server logs.  For example, if you enter a search term into a search box located on the Website, the server log may record the search term, the link you clicked on to bring you to our Website and/or information about your browser, such as your IP address and the cookies set on your browser.

Search Queries on Our Website:

We may provide you with options to search for information on our site.  If you enter information in a search query box, we may store that information and we may aggregate that information with other information we may have about the browser and/or IP address from which the search query originated.

Social Media Platforms:

We may link to certain Company social media platforms on Facebook®, Instagram®, Pinterest® and YouTube® or other platforms.  When you engage with our content at or through these social media platforms, you may be asked to share certain information about these interactions with us.  Please review the privacy policies/notices and privacy settings with each such social media platform you use so you understand how this data and information may be used, and to choose your options for the sharing of such data and information.  We do not control the social networks or their privacy policies or sharing of information, and you assume all risk associated with the use of these social media platforms.

How We Use the Information We Collect

We use the information we collect in a variety of ways.  Generally, using all of the above mentioned, and similar type tools, we may collect, aggregate, and use de-identified information from or about you such as data about the type of browser and operating system used, your geographical location, which webpages and social media pages you view, the time and duration of your visits to our Website, the search queries you may use on this Website and any other submissions you may make, whether you clicked on any items or links on the Website, whether you have clicked on any links in any emails sent from us, or third-parties on our behalf, whether you have chosen to opt-out of certain services or information sharing, and whether you have viewed or ordered certain products or services.

We may share your contact information (i.e., name and mailing address) with advertisers or other third parties to send you catalogues.  We will only share such information with those entities which we deem to be reputable and who provide/sell goods or services we believe you might be interested in purchasing.  You can always opt-out of receiving such catalogues and having your information shared for that purpose as explained below in “You Choices about the Information We Collect.”
