Privacy Policy

   This Privacy Policy describes the types of 'Personally Identifiable Information' (PII) collected and how we use and manage such information.  PII, as used in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context.  Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect, and otherwise handle your PII.

  • When ordering, or registering, we may ask you for your name, e-mail, mailing address, phone number, credit card or other information.
  • We also collect information about gift recipients so that we can fulfill the gift purchase. The information we collect about gift recipients is not used for marketing purposes.
