which pages a customer views while using the Site. This information is ultimately
stored in the form of store categories, and, in some cases, specific URLs.
We use your IP address to diagnose problems with our servers and software and to administer our Site.
Cookies: Like many other commercial sites, we may utilize a standard technology called
a "cookie" to collect information about how our site is used. A
cookie is a small data text file, which a site stores on your computer's hard
drive (if your Web browser permits) that can later be retrieved to identify
you to us. Cookies were designed to help a site recognize a user's browser
as a previous visitor and thus save and remember any preferences that may
have been set while the user was browsing the site. A cookie cannot be read
by a site other than the one that set the cookie. Cookies can securely store
a customer's password, personalize home pages, identify which parts of a site
have been visited or keep track of selections, such as those selected in a
"shopping cart." Our cookies may collect your domain name and track
your selections through our site. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data
from your hard drive, pass on a computer virus, or capture your e-mail address.
The cookies make your use of the Site easier, make the Site run more smoothly
and help us to maintain a secure Site.
The Online Store employs the industry-recognized information technology to
protect the security of the information you submit to us. The importance of
security for all personally identifiable information associated with our customers
is of utmost concern to us. Our secure servers protect the information using
advanced encryption and firewall technology.
In order to most efficiently serve you, credit card transactions and order fulfillment are handled by established
third party banking, process agents and distribution institutions. They receive
the information they need to verify and authorize your credit card transactions
and to ship your order. When collecting credit card information for online
purchases, we offer secured-server transactions that encrypt your information
in transit to thwart someone from intercepting it and misusing it. When you
access your account information, the information is kept on a secure server.
Furthermore, all of the customer data we collect is protected against unauthorized
access by physical security means.
