Automatic Data Collection

Our Website uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Webpage server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Website server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Website pages, or register with our Website or services, a cookie helps us to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the Website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Website features that you customized.

You can set your browser to refuse all or some browser cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you disable or refuse cookies, please note that some parts of this Website may then be inaccessible or not function properly.

Pages of our Website and our e-mails may also contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs) that permit the Company, for example, to count users who have visited those pages or opened an email and for other related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity).

Use of Personal Information

We may use or disclose the personal information we collect for one or more of the following purposes:

• To fulfill or meet the reason you provided the information. For example, if you share your name and contact information to request a price quote or ask a question about our products or services, we will use that personal information to respond to your inquiry.
• To process your requests, purchases, transactions, and payments and prevent transactional fraud. If you provide your personal information to purchase a product or service, we will use that information to process your payment and facilitate delivery. We may also save your information to facilitate new product orders or process returns. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to provide
the applicable product or service.
• To provide, support, personalize, and develop our Website, products, and services.
• To create, maintain, customize, and secure your account with us.
• To run a promotion, contest, survey or other Website feature, or send consumers information they agreed to receive about topics we think will be of interest to them.
• To provide you with support and to respond to your inquiries, including to investigate and address your concerns and monitor and improve our responses.
• To personalize your Website experience and to deliver content and product and service offerings relevant to your interests, including targeted offers and ads through our Website, third-party sites, and via email or text message (with your consent, where required by law).
• To send periodic emails. We may use the email address to send the consumer information and updates pertaining to their order. It may also be used to respond to their inquiries, questions, and/or other requests. If you decide to opt-in to our mailing or texting list, they will receive emails or texts, as applicable, that may include updates, related product or service information, current events, and newsletters.
• To help maintain the safety, security, and integrity of our Website, products and services, databases and other technology assets, and business.
• For testing, research, analysis, and product development, including to develop and improve our Website, products, and services.
• To respond to law enforcement requests and as required by applicable law, court order, or governmental regulations.
• As described to you when collecting your personal information or as otherwise set forth in the CCPA.
• To evaluate or conduct a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by us
about our consumers is among the assets transferred.

We will not collect additional categories of personal information or use the personal information we collected for materially different, unrelated, or incompatible purposes without providing you notice.

Sharing Personal Information

We do not sell your personal information in the traditional sense. However, the CCPA defines the sale of personal information to include “selling, renting, releasing, disclosing, disseminating, making available, transferring, or otherwise communicating orally, in writing, or by electronic or other means, a consumer’s personal information by the business to another business or a third party for monetary or other valuable consideration.”

We may share your personal information by disclosing or transmitting it to a third party for a business purpose. We only make these business purpose disclosures under written contracts that describe the purposes, require the recipient to keep the personal information confidential, and prohibit using the disclosed information for any purpose except performing the contract.

To that end, we share your personal information from each of the categories in the above table with the following categories of third parties:

• service providers;
• data aggregators;
• data analytics providers;
• internet service providers;
• operating systems and platforms;
• government entities to the extent required by law;
• affiliates, including parent and subsidiary organizations;
• business partners; and
• internet cookie data recipients, like Google Analytics.

Right to Delete

You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions (the “right to delete”). Once we receive your request and confirm your identity, we will review your request to see if an exception allowing or requiring us to retain the information applies. We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

2. Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, fulfill the terms of a product recall conducted in accordance with applicable law, or otherwise perform our contract with you.

Exercising Your Rights to Know or Delete

To exercise your rights to know or delete described above, please submit a request by contacting us using the contact information provided at the end of this policy.

Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a request to know or request to delete related to your personal information.

NOTE: WE DO NOT PERMIT persons under age 21 (or 18 with a valid doctor’s recommendation) to access our Website or premises. We do not knowingly collect personal information from individuals under 21 (or 18 with a valid doctor’s recommendation). If you are under 21 (or 18 with a valid doctor’s recommendation), do not use or provide any information on this Website or through any of its features, register on the Website, make any purchases through the Website, use any of the interactive or public comment features of this Website, or provide any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, email address, or any screen name or user name you may use. If we learn we have collected or received
personal information from anyone under age 21 (or 18 with a valid doctor’s recommendation), as applicable, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about anyone under age 21 (or 18 with a valid doctor’s recommendation), as applicable, please contact us using the contact information provided at the end of this policy.

You may only submit a request to know twice within a 12-month period. Your request to know or delete must:

• Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.

Response Timing and Format

We will confirm receipt of your request within ten (10) business days. If you do not receive confirmation within the 10-day timeframe, please contact us using the contact information provided at the end of this policy.

We endeavor to substantively respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to another 45 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity freely.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

Non-Discrimination

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

• Deny you goods or services.
• Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
• Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
• Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services

However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior optin consent, which you may revoke at any time.
