Information We Collect
We collect two basic kinds of information – personal information and anonymous information. We may use personal and anonymous information to create a third type of information, aggregate information. We collect the following categories of information on our website.
Registration, Contact, and/or Transaction information you provide when you request information or purchase a product or service from us, including your name, postal address, phone number, e-mail address, and payment information. This information is used to process a sale and provide us with a means to contact our website users. Your personally identifiable information also helps us tailor the content, services, goods, and advertising to the current and future needs of our customers. We use third parties to accept and process credit card payments for purchases of products on our website.
An Internet Protocol (“IP”) address is a unique string of numbers that is assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider. Our web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address. We may use your IP address to gather technical and usage data, as well as help, diagnose problems with our server and administer our website. Your IP address also may be used for broad demographic information.
We may gather anonymous demographic information from you (for example, your age, education level or household income) from time to time. We will not share such information with any other person or entity in a manner that identifies you as an individual unless we let you know that at the time of collection or we have your permission. When we share anonymous demographic information with third parties, we will give them aggregate information only.
Information Collected By Third Parties
There may be third-party embedded items on our website (such as video players, social media features, or links). The organizations providing those third-party items have the ability to track users that view pages containing those items, but they can only receive limited data by virtue of being viewed on our website (such as the IP address and technical details about your computer, browser, and/or internet connection. If you or someone else have previously provided your personal information to these organizations, they may be able to associate your activity with that information. For additional information or to find out how to control your privacy settings with those organizations, please visit their respective websites.
Sharing Your Information With Other Companies
We do not sell your personal information, nor will we will share your personally identifiable information with third parties (aside from entities that perform services for us, such as processing credit card payments) except in limited circumstances, including:
Please note that once we share your personal information with another company or third party, the information received by the other company or third party becomes subject to their privacy practices.

The personally identifiable information we collect about you is all saved in a profile that is kept on our server. You can review your profile at any time by visiting your registration profile. You can help us maintain the accuracy of your profile by updating your profile when you change your address, phone number, or e-mail address. You can also choose to delete your registration account and request that we delete the profile. Send your request in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Notice to California Residents
If you are a California resident, California law permits you to request from us once a year a list of the third parties to whom we have disclosed your personal information (if any) for their direct marketing purposes in the past calendar year, as well as the type of personal information disclosed to those parties. If you are a California resident and would like to request this information, please submit your request in an email to email@example.com.
If you have agreed to be included on our mailing list in order to receive e-mail solicitations from us, we may send you e-mail messages from time to time informing you of our products and services, other information, developments at our website and may also inform you about third party products and services we believe may be of interest to you. If you do not want to receive these e-mails from us anymore, just go to your Registration Profile and unclick the “Opt-In” box and you will automatically be removed from our e-mail solicitation list.
How We Respond to a “Do Not Track” Signal.
Do Not Track (DNT) is a still-not-yet finalized standard by which Internet users may choose to control the collection of personally identifiable information about the user’s online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. To learn more about Do Not Track, please click here.
Internet industry groups and regulators have been working to develop a uniform standard for how websites and online services should respond to browser DNT signals. No consensus has been reached on the final standard, and without an industry standard, users cannot know how any given website responds to the DNT signal.
So that we can gain insight on how people are using our website, as well as to gain information or perform functions beneficial to users of our website or to our organization, we may track the activity of visitors over time using the website server, as well as by one or more third-party service. Due in part to the lack of a DNT standard, our website does not currently recognize browser-based “do not track” functionality. We do not, in any event, track users’ activity across websites other than our own.
Use of Our Website by Children
Our website is not directed to children under the age of 13. We assume products purchased through credit card means are purchased by adults or minors supervised by a parent or guardian. We respect the privacy of children and the rights of parents to protect their children and are committed to complying with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). On those areas of our website that ask for age information, we do not collect personal information from individuals who identify themselves as under the age of 13 except in those limited circumstances where we believe that such collection is permitted under COPPA. If a parent believes that his or her child has provided us with personal information, he or she can contact us via e-mail or postal mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org PO Box 16485 Irvine, CA 92623-6485. We will promptly delete the information upon learning that it relates to a child under the age of 13.
We take reasonable steps to protect against the unauthorized access, disclosure, loss, misuse, and alteration of the personal information under our control. From time to time we review our security procedures to consider appropriate new technology and methods. We take steps to protect the transmission of credit card information through industry-standard encryption. Please be aware that, despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. For that reason, we disclaim any liability for the security of any information transmitted to us over the Internet and we accept no liability for any unintentional disclosure.
