These providers are only authorized to use your information to provide their services. They are not authorized to use or disclose it for any other purpose.

The Site is not intended for individuals under the age of 18. We do not intentionally collect Personal Information from children. We encourage parents to supervise the online activities of their children, and protect their safety and privacy.  If you are the parent or guardian and believe your child has provided us with Personal Information, please contact us at the address below to request deletion.

Safeguarding Your Information

We do not provide our customer list to any third parties. Personal information you provide is put into our customer database. A couple of times a year, we may send out coupons in the postal mail to previous customers. If a customer would prefer not to receive them, they can contact our store and ask to be removed from the mailing list, and we will honor their request. We do offer the opportunity for online users to sign up for our e-mail newsletter, which may contain coupons or information about our products that may be of interest to them. Users may, at any time, contact us to opt-out of receiving our newsletter.

We use Shopify's secure server that encrypts all of your personal and financial information with secure socket layer (SSL) software, to keep your information safe when placing an order. Of course no matter how great the security, no data transmissions over the internet can be guaranteed as completely secure, so although we maintain strong security features to protect your information electronically, you transmit information at your own risk.

The length of time that a cookie remains on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies last until you stop browsing and persistent cookies last until they expire or are deleted. Most of the cookies we use are persistent and will expire between 30 minutes and two years from the date they are downloaded to your device.

You can control and manage cookies in various ways. Please keep in mind that removing or blocking cookies can negatively impact your user experience and parts of our website may no longer be fully accessible.

Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can choose whether or not to accept cookies through your browser controls, often found in your browser’s “Tools” or “Preferences” menu. For more information on how to modify your browser settings or how to block, manage or filter cookies can be found in your browser’s help file or through such sites as www.allaboutcookies.org.

Additionally, please note that blocking cookies may not completely prevent how we share information with third parties such as our advertising partners.
