In general, you may visit many pages of the Website without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. We may collect information from or about the computers, phones, or other devices where you access our Website, depending on the permissions you’ve granted. We may associate the information we collect from your different devices, which helps us provide consistent Services across your devices.

We may track the Internet domain address from which you visit the Website and analyze this data for trends and statistics, but individual users will remain anonymous unless they voluntarily tell us who they are.
Sometimes (such as when you contact us through an online form, purchase or order a product, sign up for our newsletters, or subscribe to a service) we will ask you to provide personal information about yourself, such as your name, shipping/billing addresses, employer, telephone number, or e-mail address. We also maintain a record of your online purchases. Whether or not you choose to provide the information we request is entirely up to you. But if you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to purchase products, or access certain services, offers, and content on the Website.
Collection and Use of Personal Information
If you choose to provide information to us through our Website, you may be asked to provide us with personal information, including your name, address, postal address and telephone number, your e-mail address, a password, and other identifying information (such as your mother’s maiden name, city of birth, or pet name).

If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, our third-party services provider (currently, Stripe) may store your credit card data.

After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted. All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

Do Not Track

If you are visiting such sites, you may be able to set the DNT signal on your browser so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked.
