PARTIES EXCLUDED STILL COVERED
This Website routinely collects information about its Visitors, obtained in various ways. This can include pages where you register for a newsletter or subscribe to a mailing list, can include your participation in visitor surveys, can include requesting information from the Website via email, mail, or phone, or can be from ordering a product. In addition, credit card information may occasionally be provided to the Website if a product is sold. This information is kept at the highest level of security and is never divulged to anyone except the merchant service provider or for the purpose of communication with the Visitor.
Online ordering via SSL encrypted communication provided by shopping cart services supporting merchant service companies like Visa and MasterCard may provide information to the Website, but does not provide complete credit card numbers. In the process of online ordering, the Visitor provides, name, address, city, state, email address, phone number, CVV2 (back of card) number, and, occasionally a member password. In the case of online checks, additional information such as bank routing codes and account numbers, will also be provided by the Visitor. You should consider all this information possibly available to the Website, as this information may be used to deliver a product.
