We use this information to measure the number of visitors to areas of our Website, and to help us make our Website more useful and interesting to our visitors. We use information from cookies in the aggregate to analyze for trends and statistics, and then discard it; we do not track individuals, only instances of entry onto our Website.
THE WAY WE USE INFORMATION:
We use the information you provide about someone else when placing an order only to ship the product and to confirm delivery. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
We use return e-mail addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.
We may post a product review that you submit, although we reserve the right to post such review if we, in our sole discretion, deem the review inappropriate.
Upon approval, we will occasionally send out promotional emails to our previous purchasers relating to sweepstakes, and catalog and e-mail signups. You must opt in to receive emails from us when you are ordering. We provide full instructions on how to unsubscribe from these distribution lists at the bottom of each email that is circulated.
You may specifically register with our Website if you would like to receive our catalog, as well as updates on our new products and services, and information you submit on our Website will not be used for this purpose unless you fill out the registration form.
