Personal Information We Collect

The data we collect can be divided in two categories: 1) The information you provide
yourself, and 2) The information that is collected via use of the Site. When you visit the Site,
we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about
your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your
device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web
pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and
information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected
information as “Device Information”.

We collect Device Information using the following technologies:

  • “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an
    anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable
    cookies, visit
  • “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address,
    browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.
  • “Web beacons”, “tags”, and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about
    how you browse the Site.

Additionally when you make a purchase or attempt to make a purchase through the Site, we
collect certain information from you, including your name, billing address, shipping address,
payment information, email address, and phone number. We refer to this information as
“Order Information”.

Device Information and Order Information.

How Do We Use Your Personal Information?

We use the Order Information that we collect generally to fulfill any orders placed through the
Site (including processing your payment information, arranging for shipping, and providing
you with invoices and/or order confirmations). Additionally, we use this Order Information to:

  • Communicate with you;
  • Screen our orders for potential risk or fraud; and
  • When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or
    advertising relating to our products or services.

We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud
(in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for
example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site,
and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).

Sharing Your Personal Information

Only restricted part of our personnel and associates have access to your personal
information, and your information is always treated confidentially and with utmost care. We
share your Personal Information with third parties to help us use your Personal Information,
as described above. For example, we use Shopify to power our online store--you can read
