COLLECTION & USE OF INFORMATION
When visiting our Site, you may be asked for certain types of Personal Information (e.g., your first and last name, mailing address, city, state, zip code, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number, etc.). This Personal Information allows us to administer our business, better provide products and services to you, communicate offers on products that may be of interest to you, and to fulfill your order. You may volunteer to disclose Personal Information to us. If you do not want to disclose your Personal Information to us, please do not submit it. The Company may also collect non-personal information from you when you visit the Site (e.g., your IP address, browser type, domain name, etc.). Be advised that all activity and IP address information is to be monitored and that this information may be used in a civil and/or criminal cases(s) against a client if there is fraudulent use and/or theft of services.
As noted above, the Company uses the Personal Information that is collected about you for a variety of purposes, such as confirming and fulfilling your order, adding you to our e-mail subscription list, analyzing trends and statistics, improving the operation of the Site, sending informational and promotional materials, and to help us design and enhance our products and service offerings so that we may provide you with quality products and to ensure your complete satisfaction. The Company may disclose the Personal Information that we collect about you when we have reason to believe that it is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against persons or entities that may be causing injury to you, to us or to others. We may also disclose the Personal Information to assist in compliance with certain laws and regulations.

Additionally, please note that your information will be transferred outside of Europe, to the United States.
The Company retains your information as long as it is required for the purposes identified when you provided the information, or for any new purposes identified by the Company and consented to by you, and for any appropriate time thereafter including a sufficient time following to permit you to ask any questions regarding its use. Certain information is retained for longer periods for our internal audit and quality control purposes. When you place an order through the Site, we will maintain your Order Information for our records unless and until you ask us to delete this information.
The Company maintains existing business relationships and may develop other relationships in the future with certain parties (“Vendors”).

Examples may include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, e-mail administrative functions, processing credit card payments, administering chargeback representations and providing customer service. These Vendors are under contractual obligation to use confidential data only for those purposes for which they are contracted to provide.
