We may collect and store personal or other information that you voluntarily provide online while using the Site (e.g., when on the Site or in response to a feature provided on the Site). The Site contacts individuals only if they have explicitly requested it or if they have signed up to receive our messages, attended our events, or purchased our products. Information collected during online registration and online purchases generally includes names and email addresses for registration or opt-in purposes, as well as names, postal addresses, and credit card information when registering for events or purchasing products. You provide us with this information.
We also automatically collect and store information as you navigate the Site. This includes information about your computer’s internet connection, which helps us improve web page delivery and measure Site traffic. Additionally, we may use browser cookies to enhance your experience on the Site. Cookies are small files placed on your hard drive by your web browser for record-keeping purposes. They allow us to observe how and when visitors use the Site, deliver advertisements, and measure visitor patterns and trends. Cookies also prevent you from re-entering preferences in areas where you may have entered them before. Web beacons (single-pixel graphic files or “transparent GIFs”) may also be used to access cookies and count Site visitors or open HTML-formatted email messages.
We use the information collected while you use the Site in various ways, such as customizing features, displaying ads on the Site, and offering additional offers via email, direct mail, or other means. We may also share your information with third parties, including service providers, contractors, and third-party publishers and advertisers, for various purposes. Unless you follow the process detailed below, we reserve the right to use, disclose, and share all the information collected from you while using the Site for any purpose, including providing you with information about products and services. To opt out of these purposes, send an email to the Online Privacy Coordinator at [email protected], requesting removal from any information lists used for such purposes or sold to third parties.
Please be aware that when you voluntarily make your personal information available online for third parties to view (e.g., on message boards, weblogs, through email, or in chat areas), that information can be seen, collected, and used by individuals other than us. We are not responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of this information.
Please note that, on occasion, we may release information about our visitors when such release is necessary to comply with the law or protect the rights, property, or safety of the Site’s users or the public.
As our business expands, we may buy or sell various assets. In the unlikely event that we sell some or all of our assets or if another company acquires one or more of our websites, user information may be among the transferred assets.
We use Google Analytics Advertiser Features to optimize our business, including:

This data helps us contact you if you begin to fill out our checkout form but abandon it before completion, sending an email reminder to finish your order. The “Remarketing” feature lets us reach individuals who have visited our Site before and match the right audience with the correct advertising message.
