How do we use your information?
We may use the information we collect from you when you register, make a purchase, sign up for our newsletter, respond to a survey or marketing communication, surf the website, or use certain other site features in the following ways:
- To personalize your experience and to allow us to deliver the type of content and product offerings in which you are most interested.

We take steps to protect our customers’ information against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, or modification, both online and off-line.
When our online registration form or order form asks you to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology. While on a secure page, such as our order form, web browsers (such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Apple Safari) change to “locked” status as opposed to un-locked, or open, status used for general internet searches or browsing.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also strive to protect user information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only Associates who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a Consumer Care representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, all Associates are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Our Associates are regularly notified and reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers’ information is protected. Finally, the servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
If you have questions about our information security practices, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
