- What we do with the information we collect.
Our principal reason for collecting your personal information is to provide fulfillment service to you and to provide you with a personalized and efficient experience on our website. This may include personalization services, interactive communications, online shopping and other types of services.
Only certain of our staff have access to your account and personal information and only on a reasonable need-to-know basis. We make reasonable efforts to have each such person subject to a written confidentiality agreement.
If you have been referred to us by an affiliate company, we may be required to share your account information by that specific affiliate.
From time to time you will receive special offers from us by email. We do research based on the information we collect from you and from other sources including our server log files.

- Who we may disclose the information to.
As a general rule, we will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information, except when we have your permission, or under special circumstances such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or under the circumstances described below. The following describes some of the ways that we may disclose your information:
Affiliated Businesses: We offer some of our services in conjunction with an affiliate company. In some cases, our affiliates may refer you to us or sell products to you from their websites. In other cases, we provide services to or sell products jointly with these affiliates. We may share customer information related to those transactions with the relevant affiliate.
Agents: We sometimes employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include printing postcards, delivering postcards to the United States Postal Service, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. These other companies have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
Promotional Offers: Sometimes we send offers to groups of our customers on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not give that business your name and address. If you do not want to receive such offers, please adjust your Email Preferences in your email software. From time to time, you may be given the opportunity to receive materials or special offers from third parties. If you elect to receive information from these third parties, we will share your name and email address with them.
Sponsors: Many promotions offer opportunities to request additional information from sponsors. By requesting more information, you give us permission to transfer your personal information to the sponsor so they can fulfill your request. In many instances, only your email address will be shared, but other information may be shared as we reasonably determine.
Third Party Data & Data in the Aggregate: We may disclose aggregated user statistics (for example, "45% of our users are female") to describe our services to prospective affiliates, advertisers, and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes.
Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. If We, or substantially all of our assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.

Your account information is not currently password-protected. Eventually you may be able to access this personal information. You may then be able to edit certain fields in your account information using your user ID and password.

We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. Also remember to sign out of your account and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe. After you have registered and provided a credit card, you are responsible for the use of our service.
Any time we ask for credit card information, we transmit that credit card information in an encrypted format. We use industry-standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption. This is described more fully in Section h below.

- Credit card information
Any time we ask for or obtain your credit card information we transmit that credit card information in an encrypted format. We use industry-standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our reasonable best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
Real time authorization, capture and execution of credit card purchases are performed over the Internet via First Data Independent Sales. In addition to checking for a valid credit card number, the system verifies the billing address to help reduce fraud. We use a current SSL to provide a secure connection with the client. All accounting reports of credit card transactions are managed on a strictly confidential basis.
