What do we use your information for?

The information we collect from you may be used only in the processing of your transaction and may include additional contact by email or phone for this purpose. Your information will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any other company for any reason whatsoever, without your consent, other than for the express purpose of fulfilling the nature of your order.

How do we protect your information?

This website uses HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or enter, submit, or access your personal information.

After a transaction, your private billing information will not be stored on our servers.

Do we use cookies?

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others' rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
