This PRIVACY POLICY has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their “Personally Identifiable Information” (PII) is being used online. PII, as used in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own and with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

HOW DO WE USE YOUR INFORMATION? We may use the information we collect from you when you register, make a purchase, sign up for our newsletter, respond to a survey or marketing communication, surf the website, or use certain other site features in the following ways:

  • To send periodic emails regarding your order or other products and services.

HOW DO WE PROTECT VISITOR INFORMATION? We do not retain personal financial information on our website. We do not use an SSL certificate. We do not need an SSL because: Financial Information is entered and processed through PNC Bank, which is an SSL.

DO WE USE “COOKIES”? Because we are using WordPress.com as our website server, users are subject to WordPress’s cookies. WordPress uses cookies for two purposes: 1. Registered members need a cookie to be able to log in. This is ‘strictly necessary’ as WordPress won’t work without it. 2. Visitors who leave a comment on a blog post will also have a cookie set on their computer. This is not “strictly necessary” as it’s a user preference.

THIRD PARTY DISCLOSURE We transfer all customer emails and names data (but not phone numbers, mailing addresses or any other PII) to two places: 1. MailChimp.com, for our use as an email service (once signed up it is simply to unsubscribe) and 2. Google Drive, for analytics purposes.

GOOGLE Google’s advertising requirements can be summed up by Google’s Advertising Principles. They are put in place to provide a positive experience for users. https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/1316548?jl=en We have not enabled Google AdSense on our site but we may do so in the future. California Online Privacy Protection Act CALOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. – See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

It’s also important to note that we do not allow third party behavioral tracking COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act) When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online. We do not specifically market to children under 13.

FAIR INFORMATION PRACTICES The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe.
