We do not specifically target children under the age of 18, nor do we knowingly collect, without parental consent, individually identifiable information from such.

Data Retention

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This allows us to recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

Newsletters and Mailing Lists

If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletters and/or mailing lists, we ask for contact information such as name and email address.


This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, the information is protected both online and off-line.

When our registration and order pages ask users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with SSL.

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only those who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. In addition, the servers where we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a highly secured environment.

If you have any questions about the security at our website, please contact us via the contact form on this site.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our Home page so our users are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
