Information We Collect
There are two types of Information that may be collected through our Website: (1) “Personal Information” which is information that can be used to directly identify you such as your name, e-mail address, physical address, phone number, credit card number; (2) “Usage Data” which is anonymous information not linked to you personally that is related to your use of the Website, including information about the computer and mobile device you use when visiting the Website, as well as data regarding your activity, such as the actions you take within and outside of the Website, the browser and/or device you use, and the date and time of your use of the Website. In California, certain Usage Data may be considered Personal Information. For more information on your rights as a California resident under California law, please scroll down to Your California Privacy Rights below.
Whether or not you submit Personal Information, whenever you visit the Website, click on our advertisements (including those appearing on third party sites), or visit our social media pages, we or our Service Providers (as defined below) may collect, store or accumulate certain Usage Data based on your use of our Website, such as information regarding which of our pages or products are most popular, the browser you use, your computer’s IP address, and the URLs you visited before and after using our Website. For more information on how this Usage Data is collected, please see the Cookies section below. When you visit the Website on a mobile device, our Service Providers may create or read a unique mobile device identifier. We and our Service Providers also need to record your IP address, at least temporarily, so that we may send you the pages of our Website that you request.
Please note that we will only collect your credit card information if you choose to purchase our products online via our Website. If you do make such an online purchase, our payment processing partner will collect your payment information and process your payment. We do not store any credit card information or share it with anyone other than our payment processor.
Uses and Sharing of Information
We use the Personal Information that we collect to process your requests, fulfill your orders, authenticate website visits and usage, inform you of relevant products and specials through promotional e-mails, maintain and develop our Website, and otherwise communicate with you. You always will be given the opportunity to unsubscribe from further emails in any promotional messages we send you. If you would like to preemptively opt out of receiving any communications from us, please fill out the Contact Us form here and type “EMAIL OPT OUT” as the first words in the message box.
Except as described above, we will not disclose, rent, sell or share any Personal Information to unaffiliated third parties for direct marketing purposes.
We do contract with companies or individuals to provide us and you with certain services including email and hosting services, software development, credit card processing, shipping, fulfillment, data management, surveys and marketing, promotional services, etc. We call them our “Service Providers.” We may share both your Personal Information and Usage Data with Service Providers solely as required for them to perform their functions. We do not share your credit card or other account information with third parties unless you authorize us to do so, or if it is necessary to fulfill our responsibilities including, but not limited to, delivering a product or service that you order.
In addition, aggregated, non-personally-identifiable Usage Data may be used by us, or shared with our Service Providers for use, in connection with general operational, administrative, advertising, analytical, research, optimization, and security purposes, but no such information will be linked with your Personal Information or be used to identify or contact you. For more information about how Usage Data may be used for interest-based advertising, please see the section entitled “Targeted Advertising” below.

c. Rights for California Consumers
If you are a California resident, you may have certain rights. Effective as of January 1, 2020, you may request that we:
- Provide you the categories of Personal Information we have collected or disclosed about you in the last twelve months; the categories of sources of such information; the business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling your Personal Information; and the categories of third parties with whom we shared Personal Information.
- Provide access to and/or a copy of certain information we hold about you.
- Delete certain information we have about you.
We will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before responding to a request, which may include, at a minimum, depending on the sensitivity of the information you are requesting and the type of request you are making, verifying your name, email address, and physical address. You are also permitted to designate an authorized agent to submit certain requests on your behalf. In order for an authorized agent to be verified, you must provide the authorized agent with signed, written permission to make such requests or a power of attorney. We may also follow up with you to verify your identity before processing the authorized agent’s request.
d. Exercising Your California Rights
If you are a California resident and would like to exercise your three legal rights listed above ((1) right to know the categories of information, sources, purposes, and third parties we share with; (2) right to know the specific information we have about you; (3) right to delete that information) complete and submit this form. This form will be the most efficient way to exercise your rights. You may also call us at 1-866-477-0018.
You may have the right to receive information about the financial incentives that we offer to you (if any). You also have the right to not be discriminated against (as provided for in applicable law) for exercising certain of your rights. Certain information may be exempt from such requests under applicable law. We need certain types of information so that we can provide our products and services to you. If you ask us to delete it, you may no longer be able to access or use our Website or purchase our products without providing the information again.
e. We Do Not Sell Your Info
Effective January 1, 2020, California residents may opt out of the “sale” of their Personal Information. Under the CCPA, “sale” is defined such that it may include allowing third parties to receive certain information, such as cookies, IP address, and/or browsing behavior, to deliver targeted advertising on the Website or other websites. We do not allow our service providers to use information gathered on our Website for such targeted advertising. Nor do we sell your Personal Information as the term “sale” is normally used.
f. California Shine the Light Law
Under certain circumstances, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 states that, upon receipt of a request by a California customer, a business may be required to provide detailed information regarding how that business has shared that customer’s Personal Information with third parties for direct marking purposes. However, the foregoing does not apply to businesses like ours that do not disclose Personal Information to third parties for direct marketing purposes without prior approval or give customers a free mechanism to opt out of having their Personal Information disclosed to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. California users may request further information about their rights under this law and our policy by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, using the subject line “CA Request for Information,” and requesting further information.
