The Company is committed to providing you a useful and enjoyable online experience, and to protecting your personal information during your visit. When you access a Company Web site (Company Site), your information is protected by standard security and authentication techniques. As described below, we may collect information from your visit in order to personalize and improve your experience with us, but all personally identifiable information we collect is maintained securely.
To access information and send email via a Company Site, you will need a browser that supports the use of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. This encryption technology helps ensure the authenticity of your online sessions and secures data being transmitted over the public Internet.
When you enter a Company Site, you will pass through our web-application firewall, and we will identify the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer or handheld device. The IP address won’t identify you personally, but it will let us identify the device you’re using. We store IP addresses in case we need to track a connection for security purposes.
If you supply us with your email address we may let you know by email about other products and services and product enhancements that may be of interest to you. You will have the opportunity to tell us you don’t want to receive future messages with each message you receive. If you send us an email question or comment, we will use your email address to reply to you and we will temporarily store your email address, your message, and our reply for quality assurance or to satisfy applicable laws and regulations. When we collect your email address this way, we won’t use it for marketing our products and services unless you have given us permission. If you are not comfortable that your email system is secure, you can always contact Customer Service by telephone.
We don’t knowingly collect, maintain or use personally identifiable information on Company Sites from children under age 13, unless first complying with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). If we find out we have unknowingly collected such information we will take all reasonable measures to delete that information from our system as soon as possible. We are not responsible for the collection and use of information by companies or individuals unaffiliated with us whose Web sites may contain links to ours, including vendors where you may shop.
Please note that when you shop with a vendor who is linked to a Company Site, even though you may have started your visit at a Company Site and even though Company pages may still appear, your transactions are completed with a separate organization and not with us. We don’t share your personally identifiable information with them, but information you choose to share with them will fall under their privacy policies, which we encourage you to review. We carefully select other organizations in an effort to give you the value and excellent customer service you expect from us.
