Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
I am the sole owner of the information collected on this site. I only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give me via email or other direct contact from you. I will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
I will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted me. I will not share your information with any third party outside of my organization other than as necessary to fulfill your request (e.g., to ship an order).
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contact from me at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting me via the contact form on my website:
- See what data I have about you, if any.
- Change/correct any data I have about you.
- Have me delete any data I have about you.
- Express any concern you have about my use of your data.
Web log files
Like most website administrators, I use log files that record information such as Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and page navigation. I gather this information to track website visitor movement in the aggregate and to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. My goal in gathering this information is to learn how my readers, customers, and the public are using my site and services. IP addresses that are recorded by my log files are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Children and Minors
I encourage parents and guardians to monitor and participate in their children's online activities. No information should be submitted to this site by users under 13 years of age, and users under 13 years old are not allowed to make donations or register for newsletters, clubs, or activities.
Where appropriate, I may ask you to indicate your age to verify compliance with these policies. I do not knowingly collect information from users under 13 years of age or provide any personally identifying information from such users to any third party. I do not allow users known to be under 13 years of age to receive marketing communications from me or from third parties over which I have control.
No Personal Information about or from children (13 years old or under) should be provided on the site. This website is not designed for children. If you are a minor, please secure the permission and guidance of your parents or guardian before using this website.
I take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via my website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever I collect sensitive information (such as your email address), that information is encrypted and is secure when transmitted to me. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While I use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, I also protect your information offline. Only employees or contractors who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which I store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
I request information from you when you place an order. To buy from me, you must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number and expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If I have trouble processing an order, I'll use this information to contact you.
I use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help me improve your access to my site and identify repeat visitors to my site. For instance, when I use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in using a password more than once, thereby saving time while on my site. Cookies can also enable me to track and target the interests of my users to enhance the experience on my site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on my site.
Surveys & Contests
From time to time, my site requests information via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary, and you may choose whether or not to participate and, therefore, disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that I am not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. I encourage users to be aware when they leave my site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
