Your information and how hur Site makes use of it
Our Site may collect up to two kinds of information: personal (such as your name and e-mail address) and aggregate information (such as the number of users who log on to the Site on a daily basis). As a general policy, no personally identifiable information is automatically collected from your visit to our Site. However, if you choose to apply for, or otherwise participate in any promotional, e-commerce, or interactive activities offered on the Site, you will be asked to provide us with personally identifiable information about yourself (“PII”). When you set up an account on the Site, we collect PII (which you provide) that may include your: (i) first and last name, age, gender, and photograph; (ii) physical address; (iii) email address; (iv) phone number; (v) PayPal account number or credit or debit card number; and (vi) browsing and fee payment patterns. You can change or update your PII on the Site by changing your account information. The PII you submit will be used to carry out your requests, purchase merchandise and respond to your inquiries.
If the email address under which you’ve registered your account belongs to or is controlled by an organization (e.g., an educational institution, company, etc.) we may disclose your email address to that organization in order to help the organization understand which of its personnel are using our services.
From time to time, we may collect general statistical or aggregate information. Such information can include the type of browsers being used (e.g., Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome, Firefox), the operating system you are using (e.g., Windows, Mac OS, Android, or iOS), whether a mobile device is used, the number of users that visit a specific page on the Site and the character and duration of such visits. This information may be used to help analyze Site traffic and improve our services. At no point, however, will the aggregated information personally identify you.
We reserve the right to disclose any PII or aggregate information if required to do so by law, including compliance with legal process served on Company, or if we believe that such action is necessary in order to: (a) to protect or defend the legal rights or property of Company, the Site, or its users; or (b) in an emergency to protect the health and safety of the Site’s users or the general public.

Use of personal information
Internal Use of PII
In general, we use PII internally to serve our users, to enhance and extend our relationships so our users may take maximum advantage of our services. For example, by understanding how you use our Site from your computer or mobile device, we are able to customize and personalize your experience. More specifically, we use PII to provide services or to anticipate and resolve problems with our Site, to respond to inquiries, provide e-commerce services, and to create and inform you of new products or services from the Company or others that may better meet your needs.
Disclosure of PII
The following section describes these disclosure practices more fully:
Internal Analysis. We use aggregate information and PII for our own internal statistical, design, or operational purposes, such as to estimate our audience size and measure aggregate traffic patterns as well as to understand demographic, interest, and other trends among our users. We may also use this information in connection to distribution of Company newsletters and other communications. In some instances, we may outsource these tasks to third parties; however, the third parties may not use or disclose your PII for any other purposes.
Our Affiliates. PII as well as aggregate information may be shared with our corporate affiliates and stored on equipment and facilities that we share with affiliates and Company vendors. We will keep all information collected from this Site logically separate from other information stored by such affiliates on such equipment.
Information about our users and the Site is one of our most important business assets. Therefore, information about our users, including PII, will be disclosed as part of any merger or acquisition, creation of a separate business, the sale or pledge of company assets, or in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which personal information would be transferred as one of the business assets of the Company.
Protection of Company and Others
As referenced above, we release personal information when we believe it is appropriate to comply with the law (e.g., a lawful subpoena, warrant or court order); to enforce or apply our policies; to protect our rights or property, or to protect our users from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful use of, our Site; or if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires disclosure of communications or justifies disclosure of records without delay.
Security of PII
We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect against unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure of PII or credit/debit card information in our custody and control. We also are committed to employing reasonable technology in order to protect the security of our Site. However, even with the best technology, no website is 100% secure. We will take reasonable measures which we believe are appropriate to protect your PII from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction, and, where possible, will ask that any third parties to whom we may transfer such information to take comparable steps to protect that security.
Embedded content from other websites
