We recognize your right to confidentiality and are committed to protecting your privacy. We use the information that we collect on our Web sites to provide you with a superior shopping experience and to communicate with you about our products, services, and promotions.
When you place an order, we will ask you to set up "your account," which includes your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number and expiration date, as well as certain other information when you order. Using your account information, we will send you communications that we believe are relevant to you, including newsletters and e-mails.
We automatically receive and collect certain types of information whenever you visit our Web site. For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies" and Web beacons (described below) and obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses our Web sites. This information includes the Internet protocol (IP) address of your computer, your browser software and operating system, your web server, the date and time you access our site, session information (such as download errors and page response times), information about your viewing, search and purchase history and information about the referring URL and the URL clickstream to, through, and from our Web sites. We use this information to monitor the usage and performance of our Web site, to enhance our customers' search and shopping experiences and to determine aggregate information about our user base and usage patterns.
If we receive updated account information from third parties, we may revise your account for you so that we can efficiently process your orders, deliver your products or otherwise communicate with you. For example, we may receive customer information from our shippers or from third parties with which we operate co-branded businesses. In addition, we may acquire customer names, e-mail addresses and mailing addresses for select mailings from third parties.
We collect additional information that you choose to give us. For example, you provide information to us when you complete surveys or contest entry forms, add items to "Your Wish List," sign up for special discounts or coupons, communicate with us by e-mail, phone or otherwise, provide product reviews, or provide alternative delivery addresses.

Your privacy is very important to us. You should be aware, however, that unscrupulous marketers can sometimes "harvest" your e-mail address directly from your computer or another person's address book or even obtain your e-mail address through programs that automatically search web pages and e-mail traffic for e-mail addresses. Please note that all e-mail that originates from us will either display the customer service phone number, logo (HTML e-mails only). In addition, our e-mails will contain our corporate address.
