If you elect to engage in these activities, however, we may ask that you provide us personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including zip code), email address, telephone and facsimile numbers, credit card type, and number, credit card security code, and other personally identifiable information. Depending upon the activity, some of the information we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
1.2 Non-Personally Identifiable Information: refers to information that does not by itself identify you as a specific individual, which may include information the computer or device that you used to access the Site, such as IP address, geolocation information, unique device identifiers, browser type, browser language or other information of this nature. We may also collect certain non-personally identifiable information about you based upon how you search the Site, including which pages you view and products or services you request while visiting our Site. For system administration and statistical analysis purposes, this information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis to track access to the Site.

A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web. At no time do we disclose site usage by individual IP addresses. Web serve logs are retained on a temporary basis and then deleted from our systems.

3. Release of Information
We do not sell any of your Personal Identifiable Information, including your name, mailing address, email address, or phone number, to any companies.

For example, we may release your address information to the delivery service to deliver products that you ordered; and provide order information to third parties that help us provide customer service. We encourage our service providers to adopt and post privacy policies.
