Privacy & Legal

We will not share your personal information (name, address, phone) with anyone for any reason unless compelled to do so by law. Your information is only used to process your order and communicate with you.

Security

We operate a secure site for our shopping cart and account management, using encrypted transactions for all your credit card and personal information. When you see “https” instead of “http” in your browser’s address bar when checking out, the data is encrypted as it is passed between your computer and our servers. This prevents outsiders from obtaining personal data or credit card information.

Emails

Our order processing software automatically sends out an order confirmation email when an order is received. A ship confirmation email is sent (if the order is shipped via UPS) at the end of the day when the order is shipped. These emails are automatic and are sent by our server software. If you have spam-blocking software, you may not be able to receive the emails. If you do not receive an order confirmation email or a ship confirmation email, you can check the status of your order by clicking on My Account in the upper right corner on our website.

We will not share your email address with third parties unless compelled to do so by law. If you wish to receive our weekly email newsletters, which include special offers and information about new products, you can join our email list. You join this list when you create your account the first time you order, but every email we send includes a ‘one click unsubscribe’ link so that you can easily opt-out of all future emails if you wish.
