We collect personal data that you voluntarily provide to us on this website, such as your email address, billing and shipping address, name, organization, title, telephone number, credit card number and other payment information, demographic information, or persistent identifier (such as your username and password). In addition, when you visit our website, our web server automatically recognizes and stores your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (the Internet address of your computer or device). Your computer provides this information automatically each time you log on, unless you have activated blocking technology available in some browsers.

The personal data that we automatically collect from your computer and device, such as your IP address, help us determine which areas of our website are being visited and the length of the visit. This information helps us better understand our visitors, tailor our visitors’ experience on this website, and improve the website.
Whether We Share Your Personal Data With Others
We do not sell your personal data to third parties. We do, however, share your personal data with service providers who assist us in providing services on this website. This includes, for example, providing your personal data to service providers who help process and ship your orders, communicate with you, and screen orders for potential risk or fraud.
Further, we use a service provider, Google Analytics, to help us understand how our customers use this website. You can read more about how Google Analytics uses your information here: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

Lastly, we may share your personal data if necessary to: (1) comply with foreign or domestic laws; (2) comply with a civil, criminal, or regulatory inquiry, investigation, subpoena, or summons by foreign or domestic authorities; (3) cooperate with law enforcement agencies concerning conduct or activity that we reasonably and in good faith believe may violate foreign or domestic laws; or (4) exercise or defend legal claims.
How We Protect Your Personal Data
We have implemented and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices, and commercially reasonable technical and organizational measures, to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk in order to help protect your personal data from unauthorized access and exfiltration, theft, or disclosure. We are committed to protecting your personal data, but you can do your part. You should create a strong password and protect against unauthorized access to your password and your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer and do not share your password with anyone. We cannot guarantee the security of any personal data you transmit to us, and by using our website and services you acknowledge this risk. We will notify you if there is a breach of our security where required by law or deemed necessary.
