2. Website Use Information.
Similar to other commercial web sites, our Site utilizes a standard technology called "cookies" and web server logs to collect information about how our Site is used.
A "cookie" is a small piece of information sent from a website and stored on the user's computer by the user's web browser. The piece of information is sent back to the website on subsequent browser requests. This provides a mechanism for stateful interaction between a user and a website, such as keeping track of logging in and what items are in the cart. Without such a mechanism it would be difficult to carry out the purchasing process in an online store. Cookies simply make your online experience easier.
C. Website logs.
We use website browser software tools such as web server logs to gather information about our Site users' browsing activities in order to constantly improve our Site and better serve our customers. This information assists us to design and arrange our web pages in the most user-friendly manner and to continually improve our Site to better meet the needs of our customers and prospective customers.
3. Disclosure of Information.
A. Legally Compelled Disclosure of Information.
We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights.
4. How We Secure Information Transmissions.
A. Payment Security.
We take extreme measures to ensure your payment card number is secure:
B. Employee Access, Training and Expectations.
Our corporate values, ethical standards, policies and practices are committed to the protection of customer information. In general, our business practices limit employee access to confidential information, and limit the use and disclosure of such information to authorized persons, processes and transactions.
C. Information Security.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. All personal information is transmitted to our web server using strong Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption; TLS is the standard security technology for creating an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
