Through "cookies" we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses our Web sites. There are utilities designed to help you visit Web sites anonymously.

What are "Cookies" and how do we use them?

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser. Cookies allow us to manage your shopping cart during visits to our site.

The "help" portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie or how to disable cookies altogether. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of some of our Web sites’ best features, so we recommend that you leave them turned on.

What about links to and from other Web sites?

Our Web sites may offer links to other sites. Other sites have their own policies regarding privacy. If you visit one of these sites, you may want to review the privacy policy on that site. In addition, you may have linked to one of our Web sites through another site. For example, in certain cases you may have linked to through advertising on another site. In such cases the site you linked from may collect information from people who click on the ad or link. You may want to refer to the privacy policies on those sites to see how they collect and use this information.


We recognize the particular importance of protecting privacy where children are involved. We are committed to protecting children's privacy on the Internet and we comply fully with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If a child has provided one of our Web sites with personally identifiable information, we ask that a parent or guardian contact us and we will delete the information about the child from our files.

Your Consent

By using one of our Web sites, you consent to our use of visitor information as described in this online privacy policy. We may change or add to this privacy policy so we encourage you to review it periodically.

Our Commitment to Data Security

We have appropriate physical, electronic and procedural security safeguards to protect and secure the information we collect.

Secure Sockets Layering (SSL)

Our Web sites use Secure Sockets Layering (SSL) to encrypt your personal credit information, including your credit card number, before it travels over the Internet. SSL technology is the industry standard for secure online transactions.

Safe Shopping Guarantee

Our security measures are designed to prevent anyone from stealing and using your credit card number. In addition, consumer protection laws protect you against the unauthorized use of your credit card. Under the Fair Credit Billing Act, if your credit card is used without your authorization, your liability for those fraudulent charges cannot exceed $50. So, if someone steals your credit card or your credit card number, your liability is limited to $50 no matter how much the thief charges to your account. If your credit card provider does hold you liable for any part of this $50, we will cover the entire liability for you, up to the full $50.

We will cover this liability only if the unauthorized use of your credit card resulted through no fault of your own from purchases made at our Web sites while using the secure server. In the event of unauthorized use of your credit card, you must notify your credit card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures.
