PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED

“Personal information” is information related to your identity and can therefore identify you. You may be required to provide personal information to access or use certain features of our website. If you do not provide the requested personal information, you may not be able to access or use those features where such information is requested.

The personal information we collect is your name, phone number, address, email address, phone number, and credit or debit card payment information.

We may collect information that is more general in nature (“general information”) such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address, which enables us to identify your computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) network, which includes the World Wide Web. Your computer has an IP address, which is required in order for you to communicate with others via the Internet. Such general information may be collected from you whenever you access the site, whether or not you provide us with any other personal information.

Mobile Device Access. If you access this website through a mobile device, then we may collect information about your mobile device whether or not you provide us with any other personal information.

Click Stream Data. When you visit our website, we may also collect "click stream data" such as your server address or domain name. This information will enable us to analyze and better customize your visits. We may use click stream data for traffic analysis or e-commerce analysis of our website, to determine which features of our site are most or least effective or useful to you.

Do Not Track. We are strongly committed to not sharing personal information with third parties. Under this Privacy Policy, we may share your information only under particular situations, as described in this Policy. Because we protect all users in this manner, we do not change our behavior in response to a web browser's "do not track" signal.

You can turn off all cookies, in case you prefer not to receive them. You can also have your computer warn you whenever cookies are being used. For both options, you have to adjust your browser settings (such as Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, or other browser). There are also software products available that can manage cookies for you. Please be aware, however, that when you choose to reject cookies, this choice may limit the functionality of the website you visit and you may lose access to some of its features.
