What information do we collect and how do we use it?
* When you order from our site you actually pay us through PayPal so we NEVER SEE your credit card or personal financial information. PayPal is a secure, safe method of payment that is used by over 50 million people around the world. Thanks to PayPal, we don't need or receive any sensitive personal information from you other than your name, contact information and shipping address. We do NOT receive your credit card numbers and have no access to them. PayPal provides authentication of your identity and payment for your purchase to us. That is all that is needed to purchase from us. This allows us to process and fulfill your order and to notify you of your order status. This works because PayPal trusts you and we trust PayPal. In fact, now you don't even have to sign up for a PayPal account to order from us! - But you might as well because it will save you time, money and piece of mind knowing that your financial information is not cast all over the internet.

How do we protect the privacy of children younger than 13? We are concerned about the privacy and safety of young children online and do not knowingly collect any personal information from a child under 13 in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). COPPA and its accompanying FTC regulations establish United States federal law that protects the privacy of children using the Internet. Our site is not intended to solicit information of any kind from children under 13, and we have designed our sites to block our knowing acceptance of information from children under 13 whenever age-related information is requested. We suggest that you become involved with your child's access to the Internet and to our site to ensure that his or her privacy is well protected.
