How We Protect Your Information
Protecting your privacy is very important to us and we respect your concerns about how we collect and use your personal information. We take appropriate steps to maintain the security of personal information we collect, including restricting the number of people who can access our database and utilizing security systems and passwords that guard against unauthorized access. Our website uses encryption technology, like Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), that secures the transport of personal information that we receive when you create an account or place an order such as your name, address, and credit card information.
In addition, our customer service center operates on a secure network. However, please note that emails that you exchange with us are not encrypted so do not provide us with credit card information in an email.

This information is used to ensure that the orders you place with us get delivered in a timely and efficient manner.

Credit Card Information. Each time you place an order and pay by credit card, we ask you to enter your credit card information. We do not store a permanent record of your credit card information. We only capture it at the time you make a purchase and then securely transmit it to the proper processing centers for verification and approval. We do not store your credit card information with your customer record.

If you choose to disable cookies, you will not receive customized content and we will be unable to recognize you as a registered user when you visit our site.
