Except for certain areas of our web site that are limited to our retail dealers and distributors, you need not "sign-in" or register to browse our site. This means you may browse the web pages intended for end-user customers, without providing any personal identifying information ("PII").
In the event that you choose to engage in a transaction while accessing our site, we will ask that you provide certain PII that is needed to complete the transaction. We will use the PII only for that purpose. For example, if you ask us for additional information about a product, we will ask for your email address in order that we may respond to your inquiry. If you purchase one of our products, we will ask that you provide us with the information needed in order to process your order, charge your credit card account, send a message confirming your order and deliver the product you have purchased. We do not give, sell, or trade to other firms or our affiliates any PII about you or your transactions with us, nor will we contact you using this information unless you specifically tell us to.
We use Secure Socket Layer Technology ("SSL") to encrypt the PII and Registration Data you send to us through our site so that it cannot be read in transit. All of your PII and Registration Data, including your credit card number, mailing address, email address, and telephone number, as well as information related to your order, will be transmitted encrypted to protect your privacy. Further, to ensure that your PII and Registration Data is secure, we store it in a database that is not accessible over the Internet and will not be displayed anywhere on this web site.
