number by filling out a form or sending us an e-mail, we collect that
collect about all visitors. Everybody who visits our site is actually
telling their browser to ask us to send them our information. That’s how the
World Wide Web works. Typing in our address or clicking a link to our site
starts your request. That request tells us the numerical IP address of the
computer or network that asked for the information and what information is
being requested. Your request may also tell us information about your computer,
operating system, and web browser. We may also learn what web page brought you
to us, what pages you visit, and what link you clicked to leave our site.
We do the things you
ask. Obviously, if you want us to do something with your information, we
will. If you ask for e-mail, we send it.
If you tell us where to ship something, we will print out a label with your
address and ship your purchase to you. If you ask us to call you, we will dial
your phone number. If you put something on your “WANT” list, our site will post
it to your Facebook page.
We try to make your
experience better. We offer a “shopping cart” for your convenience, we try
to identify the things you might be interested in and show them to you, and we
remember your preferences for using the web site.
We try to improve our
business. We look at “analytics,” which are reports about how the web site
is being used. An outside company that helps us with our web site may assist
us. We do not identify individual customers

statistics about where customers are located, how they are using the site, what
pages and products they are viewing, and how long they stay. We use this
information to make our products, and our web site, more attractive to

additional products or services. We may contact you with information about
our products or our company that we think may interest you, using the contact
information you have provided. We don’t want to waste your time or bother you,
so if you tell us you don’t want to receive such information, we will do
everything we reasonably can to stop further efforts to reach you. You may
contact us at email@example.com and we will process your request. Please
give us a few days to make sure we take care of all the details.
We turn over
information when we are legally required to do so. If a law, a judge or a
government body requires that we provide information we have collected, and we
determine we are obligated to provide it, we will turn the information over. In
unusual cases, we may provide information to others if we reasonably expect to
help prevent fraud or harm by doing so.
Our site uses “cookies.” A cookie is a small computer file

information we have stored about your interaction with us. For example, your
preferences about viewing our website, the contents of your shopping cart, or
