Like most standard Web site servers we use log files.
This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet
service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time
stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site,
track users movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic
information for aggregate use. IP addresses are tied to personally identifiable
information to enable our Web-based service. We use log files to analyze
We may employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs). Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies (see the security & privacy section), and are used on the final shopping cart page to track sales for marketing programs. The main difference between the two is that clear gifs are invisible on the page and are much smaller, about the size of a period at the end of a sentence. Clear gifs are not tied to users personally identifiable information.
In addition, we use clear gifts in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by the
recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. If users would like to opt-out of these emails or change the type of email they receive to text, please see the Opt-out section.
Special Offers and Updates will occasionally sent for information on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive these types of communications. Please see the Choice and Opt-out sections.
Service Announcements on rare occasions will be send out. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance we might send users an email. Generally, users may not opt-out of these communications. However, these communications are not promotional in nature.
Customer Service communication with users on a regular basis is a service and may be issues relating to their account, we communicate via email or phone, in accordance with the users wishes.
We use outside shipping companies to ship orders; at times we use an outside telemarketing company to take orders; and a credit card processing company to validate charges for goods. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
Service Providers; We may partner with other third parties to provide specific services.
For example, email vendor that transmits all of our marketing emails, and data processing and postal sorting for each catalog mailing. When the user signs up for these particular services, we share
names, email addresses and mailing address information that is necessary
for the third party to provide these services. These third parties are
not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the
purpose of providing these services.
We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads

that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when users
are just surfing.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to
protect user-information off-line. All of our users information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information.
