What We Collect from You
We collect personal information from you. We do this in order to operate the site and to occasionally display advertisements about products or services that may be of interest to you. Personal Information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available. We also collect “financial information” such as your credit card numbers or passwords. Further, we collect certain “demographic information”, that is information that is neither personal information nor financial information; this may include, but is not limited to, zip code, gender, username, and age/birth date.
Information from other sources
We may collect and store personal information about other people that you provide to us, such as their name, address and email address. This information shall be used solely for the purpose for which it is provided, such as your referral of our service to others, or to manage your product purchase information. If you use our website to send others (friends, relatives, colleagues, etc.) a product as a gift, we may store your personal information, including your product purchase history, product preferences, and product recipient information, in order to process those requests and facilitate future purchase activities.
