Privacy Policy

What information do we collect?


  • We  collect information from you when you register on the site, place an  order, enter a contest or sweepstakes, respond to a survey or  communication such as e-mail, or participate in another site feature.
  • When  ordering or registering, we may ask you for your name, e-mail address,  mailing address, phone number, credit card information or other  information. You may, however, visit our site anonymously.
  • We  also collect information about gift recipients so that we can fulfill  the gift purchase. The information we collect about gift recipients is  not used for marketing purposes.
  • Like many websites, we use  “cookies” to enhance your experience and gather information about  visitors and visits to our websites. Please refer to the “Do we use  ‘cookies’?” section below for information about cookies and how we use  them.


How do we use your information?

We  may use the information we collect from you when you register, purchase  products, enter a contest or promotion, respond to a survey or  marketing communication, surf the website, or use certain other site  features in the following ways:


  • To personalize your site  experience and to allow us to deliver the type of content and product  offerings in which you are most interested.
  • To allow us to better service you in responding to your customer service requests.
  • To quickly process your transactions.
  • To administer a contest, promotion, survey or other site feature.
  • If  you have opted-in to receive our e-mail newsletter, we may send you  periodic e-mails. If you would no longer like to receive promotional  e-mail from us, please refer to the “How can you opt-out, remove or  modify information you have provided to us?” section below. If you have  not opted-in to receive e-mail newsletters, you will not receive these  e-mails. Visitors who register or participate in other site features  such as marketing programs and ‘members-only’ content will be given a  choice whether they would like to be on our e-mail list and receive  e-mail communications from us.


How do we protect visitor information?

We  implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your  personal information. Your personal information is contained behind  secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons  who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep  the information confidential. When you place orders or access your  personal information, we offer the use of a secure server. All  sensitive/credit information you supply is transmitted via Secure Socket  Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our databases to be only  accessed as stated above.

Do we use “cookies”?

Yes.  Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers  to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow)  that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your  browser and capture and remember certain information. For instance, we  use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping  cart. They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on  previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with  improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate  data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better  site experiences and tools in the future.

We may contract with  third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our  site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the  information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and  improve our business.

You can choose to have your computer warn  you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all  cookies. You do this through your browser (like Netscape Navigator or  Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look  at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your  cookies. If you turn cookies off, you won’t have access to many features  that make your site experience more efficient and some of our services  will not function properly. However, you can still place orders over the  telephone by contacting customer service.

Do we disclose the information we collect to outside parties?

We  do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your  personally identifiable information unless we provide you with advance  notice, except as described below. The term “outside parties” does not  include STS.. It also does not include website hosting  partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website,  conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties  agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your  information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the  law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights,  property, or safety.

However, non-personally identifiable visitor  information may be provided to other parties for marketing,  advertising, or other uses.

How can you opt-out, remove or modify information you have provided to us?

To  modify your e-mail subscriptions, please let us know by modifying your  preferences in the “My Account” section. Please note that due to email  production schedules you may receive any emails already in production.

To  delete all of your online account information from our database, sign  into the “My Account” section of our site and remove your shipping  addresses, billing addresses & payment information. Please note that  we may maintain information about an individual sales transaction in  order to service that transaction and for record keeping.
