The Short Version
We detest spam, spammers, phishers, aggressive advertisers, over-sharers, and other related forms of internet wankery. We will not participate in these activities. If you order something from us, we use your info only to send you the stuff you ordered. We won’t send you a marketing email unless you specifically asked us to, and we do not presume to check that box for you. We have a Facebook page which you are welcome to follow, and if you do, we won’t fill your feed with a bunch of crap. Any questions or concerns? Send us an email and a real human being will read it and respond.

The Way We Use Information:
We use the information you provide about yourself when placing an order only to complete that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
We use the information you provide about someone else when placing an order only to ship the product and to confirm delivery. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
We offer gift cards by which you can personalize a product you order for another person. Information you provide to us to create a gift card is only used for that purpose, and it is only disclosed to the person receiving the gift.
We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.
You can register with our website if you would like to receive our catalog as well as updates on our new products and services. Information you submit on our website will not be used for this purpose unless you fill out the registration form.
We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website. For example, we collect web use statistics that tell us X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, but we do not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without explicitly asking you to opt-in to such unrelated uses.
We use third parties to carry out some functions of our business. Specifically, we currently use Fedex, UPS, and Paypal at various stages in the payment and shipping process. In the future we may use other similar order fulfillment and payment processing companies. Consequently, theses companies will have access to some of your information as well, although they do not have permission to use it in any way other than what is necessary to fulfill your order.
