This information will not include anything that is personal about you or allow any such third parties to identify you or access your personal information.

5. Pixel Tags
We may also use “pixel tags” (sometimes called “web beacons” or “clear gifs”), which are tiny graphic images, on the Website. Pixel tags may help us analyze the user’ online behavior and measure the effectiveness of the Website. We may work with service providers that help us track, collect, and analyze this information. Pixel tags on the web site may be used to collect information about your visit, including the pages you view, the features you use, the links you click, and other actions you take in connection with the Website. This information may include your computer’s Internet protocol (IP) address, your browser type, your operating system, date and time information, and other technical information about your computer. We may also track certain information about the identity of the websites you visit immediately before coming to our site. We do not otherwise track any information about your use of other websites.
Pixel tags and cookies in our emails may be used to track your interactions with those messages, such as when you receive, open, or click a link in an email message from us.
We may also work with business partners that use tracking technologies to deliver advertisements on our behalf across the Internet. These companies may collect information about your visits to the Website and your interaction with our communications.
We may combine the information collected through cookies and pixel tags with other information we have collected from you.

6. Your Security
6.1 We take appropriate physical, electronic and administrative steps to maintain the security and accuracy of personally identifiable information we collect, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers, as well as employing electronic security systems and password protections that guard against unauthorized access. In addition, it is our policy to never send your credit card number via e-mail. Please note that e-mail is not encrypted and is not considered to be a secure means of transmitting information, so please do not email us any confidential or financial information.
6.2 In order to process your credit cards, we use a service that uses Secure Socket Layers (SSL), the industry standard in transferring information to process your orders. The SSL encrypts, or translates, your order information into a highly indecipherable code, which is processed immediately. All credit card transactions occur in a secure area of the Website, to protect you from any loss, misuse or alteration of information collected. When you have finished shopping and begin the checkout process, you will move into the secure area of the Website. Once you have entered, the page address (URL) will change from “http” to “https” to let you know you are in a secure area. Also, a key or a closed lock will appear in the lower right hand corner of your screen to notify you of this change. You will remain in this secure zone for the entire checkout process.
6.3 Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, the transmission of data over the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we will use all reasonable means to ensure the security of information you transmit to us, we cannot guarantee that such information will not be intercepted by third parties, and we will not be liable for the same. We will, however, investigate and, if appropriate, prosecute any unauthorized or fraudulent transactions to the fullest extent permitted by law.
7. Links to Other Websites
7.1 While visiting the Website, you may link to websites operated by third parties. This does not mean that we endorse these websites. We do not make any representations or warranties about any third-party website you may access through the Website. Such linked websites are independent from us, and we have no control over, or responsibility for, their products, services, information, or other activities.
8. “Spoofing” And “Phishing”
A common Internet scam is known as “spoofing” or “phishing.” This occurs when you receive an email from what appears to be a legitimate source requesting personal information from you. Please be aware that we will never send you any email requesting you to disclose or verify your credit card, bank information, password, or any other personal information. If you ever receive an email that appears to be from us requesting such information from you, DO NOT respond to it, and DO NOT click on any links appearing in the email. Instead, please forward the email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, as we will investigate instances of possible Internet fraud.
