PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
When you visit the website, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device.

We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.”
We collect Device Information using the following technologies:

Our shopping cart uses SSL secure shopping so your data is safe and secure.
“SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a standard security protocol for establishing encrypted links between a web server and a browser in an online communication. The usage of SSL technology ensures that all data transmitted between the web server and browser remains encrypted.”
We also provide a PayPal checkout option in our shopping cart. PayPal does not show us your sensitive financial information like your credit card or bank account number. Additionally, when you use PayPal with any website, PayPalPurchase Protection covers you if you have a problem.
