We receive and store any information you enter on our site or give us in any other ways or that we may receive from time to time from other sources (“personal information”).

• financial information, including Social Security and/or Employer Identification numbers.
We might also receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. Examples of information we receive from other sources include updated delivery and address information from our carriers or other third parties, which we use to correct our records.
We use your personal information to facilitate the services you request. We also use your personal information to: resolve disputes; troubleshoot problems; collect amounts owed; measure interest in services; inform you about products, services, newsletters and updates; customize your experience; detect and protect us against error, fraud and other criminal activity; comply with law or regulation; protect our rights or property; enforce our Terms and Conditions of Use or this Privacy Statement; protect someone’s health or safety; help us in our business and as otherwise described to you at the time of collection.
You agree that we may use personal information about you to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to analyze site usage, improve our content and service offerings, and customize the site’s content, layout, and services. These uses improve the site and better tailor it to meet your needs.
Sharing of Information
We will not release personally identifiable information about you without your permission, except under special circumstances when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or when we believe it is necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of our company, our customers or others. We do not share with, license or sell to third parties non-personal information for website marketing, promotional or other activities, unless you have given us permission. Should we sell all or part of our business, we may also share information about you.
Upon viewing our website, your computer automatically receives certain information for it to store. This information is popularly referred to as a “cookie”, which is an alphanumeric identifier that helps you to use a website more efficiently and prevents you from reentering data every time you access our site. Cookies do not contain any personal information and do not damage your computer. Should you wish to remove this feature, most Internet browsers allow you to control the placement of cookies on your hard drive.
We operate secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection. We have security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of your user data under our control. However, such security measures may not prevent all loss, misuse or alteration of information on our website.
Our site complies with the terms of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. Under this Act, no web site operator is permitted to require, as a condition to participation in an activity, that a child under the age of 13 disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to participate. We will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information on users under the age of 13 without parental consent.
