What Information is Collected and How is it Collected
In general, you may visit many pages of the Website without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. Sometimes (such as when you purchase or order a product, join our mailing list or send us an email) we will ask you to provide personal information about yourself, such as your name, shipping/billing addresses, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card information, birth date, gender, occupation, or personal interests. We also maintain a record of your online purchases. Whether or not you choose to provide the information we request is entirely up to you. But if you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to purchase products or access certain services, offers, and content on the Website.
