Special Policies for Children Identifying Themselves as Under Age 13. This Site is not intended for use by children. In compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, 15 U.S.C. §§ 6501-06 and 16 C.F.R. §§ 312.1-312.12, we will not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information submitted by visitors to the Site who are under the age of 13.
Links. The Site may reference or provide links to other sites, including, among others, those of advertisers, other third parties and companies whose trademarks may appear on the Site. Sometimes promotions, contests or sweepstakes advertised on the Site might be sponsored by third parties. The other sites and third parties maintain their own privacy policies that may be different from ours. Visitors using such links or pursuing or entering such contests or sweepstakes should consult the privacy notices associated with those links, promotions, contests or sweepstakes. We do not control, nor are we responsible or liable for, the privacy policies, information practices or actions taken by such third parties or their websites with regard to your personally identifiable information, and you should review the privacy policies posted on such sites. Our Privacy Notice does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond our control. Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online, for example, via message boards or chat rooms, such information can be intercepted and used by people you do not know
Security. Protecting your order information is important to us. We use the industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect the security of your online order information. SSL encryption is a method by which information is encrypted while being transmitted over the Internet. To check the security of your connection, look at the lower left-hand corner of your browser window after accessing the server. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending on your browser), then SSL is active. You can also double-check by looking at the URL line of your browser. When accessing a secure server, the first characters of the Site address should change from “http” to “https.” Some versions of browsers and some firewalls don’t permit communication through secure servers. In that case, you won’t be able to connect to the server and therefore won’t be able to place an order through an insecure connection. While no method is completely impenetrable, our SSL is verified by Thawte who is the industry security leader. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we are committed to protecting your personally identifiable information, we, along with our third party provider(s), cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.
In addition, if you are a resident of a country within the European Union, by using this Site and providing us your personally identifiable information you explicitly acknowledge and agree to (i) the transfer of your personally identifiable information to the United States and (ii) the collection and use of your personally identifiable information in accordance with this Privacy Notice.
