WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE GATHER FROM THOSE WHO VISIT OUR SITE?
When you visit our Website, you may provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose, and information that we automatically collect as you browse our Website.
Information You Voluntarily Submit. We collect and store any information you enter on our Website, or provide to us in offline contacts we have with you. Information is collected from visitors to the Website
in the following areas:
- REGISTRATION FORMS–if you register for the Website, or for specific events, promotions and newsletters on various areas of the Website, we will generally ask you to provide contact information, and preferences regarding the event or material for which you desire to register. You may, however, visit our Website without registering.
- ORDER FORMS–Some areas of the Website may allow you to order products or services, whether or not for a fee. In connection with these transactions, we collect data necessary to complete the transaction and that is data proportioned by you. This may include contact information, date of birth, e-mail address, telephone number and your credit card number. We may also collect information about gift recipients so that we can fulfill the gift purchase.
- SURVEYS–At times, you may be asked to complete survey questions that appear on the Website.
- DISCUSSION FORUMS–We may make chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or news groups available to our users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.
- E-MAIL–On several screens of our site, you also have an opportunity to communicate with us by E-mail. You may also choose to provide your e-mail address to receive communications from us.
Information Collected and Stored Automatically.
When you browse our Website, you and your Web browser may also transmit information that we automatically collect. We may log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer), the Web pages you visit and the time of your visit, and other click-stream data. This information may be combined with other personal information you have provided. The only other type of information automatically provided to us is the type of computer, operating system and browser you are using. This information is provided by your browser, which we use to improve the performance of our site.
We may also place small data files, called “cookies,” in the browser file of your computer's hard drive. These cookies automatically identify your browser to our server whenever you interact with the Website. We use the cookies to record Website statistics. Most browsers automatically accept the cookies, but you usually can change your browser setting to prevent the acceptance of cookies. Certain Web pages may not function properly if you choose not to accept cookies.
HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We may use your personal information to communicate with you if and when necessary in connection with your use of our Website, to respond to your questions, or to send you material and information you request. We may use your information to:
- Personalize your site experience and to allow us to deliver the type of content and product information in which you are most interested.
- Possibly respond directly to you for clarification
- Try to and answer your questions if you ask them
- Register you for an event, contest or sweepstakes, if you request it.
We may provide you with electronic messages and other information regarding upcoming events, new services and general information about our products and services, unless, you may elect not to receive these communications, either when you initially register at our site, or at any time thereafter. (See the section called “Choice/Opt Out.”) We may also use your Website information in order to help diagnose problems with our site. We may use all information we collect to analyze statistical use patterns and demographic data (basically, where our visitors come from and what demographic characteristics they have) and to improve our site to better serve our customers. We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our servers, and to administer our Website.
Your IP address is used to help identify you and your shopping cart and to gather broad demographic information.

Again, such statistical data will not specifically identify you or any other user. We use this information to help us make our Website more useful to visitors–to learn about the number of visitors to our Website, what part of the Website they are interested in, how long the use the Website, and the types of technology our visitors use.

We may disclose information about you if and when we believe it is necessary to comply with any law, rule, court order, or subpoena, or to enforce our legal rights or the rules of this Website, or to protect our business, property and operations, or in connection with a sale, acquisition, merger or other business combination of our business with a third party.
