You will be asked for your shipping and billing addresses, your email address, and your credit card number or other payment-related information. If you request one of our newsletters or send an inquiry to one of our customer service representatives we will store a record of your request along with your email address. Additionally, our Web servers track various technical details about your visit, such as your computer's IP address and which pages you visited.

These service providers are contractually bound to protect your privacy in accordance with our Privacy Statement and may only use the information we provide for activities or we approve and control. Some of those organizations may have their own privacy statements which may give you additional protections. You are encouraged to read those statements when presented.

How do I access, update, or delete my personally identifiable information?
For security reasons your personal information may not be changed online. Due to various legal and recordkeeping requirements, however, we may be required to maintain records about your purchases or other activities on this website.
