Third Party Websites
A “cookie” is a small text file containing a unique identification number that is transferred from a site to the hard drive of your computer so that the site administrator may identify your computer and passively track its activities on the site. If your browser accepts cookies, we may use those cookies to store your preferences, such as items placed in your online shopping cart, in order to make your interaction with our site more personal.
Use of your E-Mail Address and Opting Out
By providing your email address, you are opting to receive emails from us with news, special offers, promotions and messages tailored to your interests.

The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
