The information that we collect from you is used entirely and only by us, except in cases where we use third parties to perform certain functions for us, such as credit card processing, order fulfillment, package delivery or data analysis. In these cases, we provide such third parties with access only to the information that is necessary for them to perform the specific tasks for which they are responsible, and they are not authorized to retain, share, store or that information for any other purpose.

USE OF LOG FILES
We may use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer this site, track movement and to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We have incorporated into this site certain features designed to safeguard information that we obtain from you. For example, when you are asked to enter certain sensitive information (such as a credit card number), that information is protected with encryption software.
While we use measures like encryption to protect sensitive information, we also take measures to protect your sensitive information offline. Because our websites are an extension of our retail stores, the stores and online inventory and customer databases may be linked. Access to such databases is limited to those employees that require access in order to perform specific functions such as billing, order processing, shipping and customer service, and such access is password protected. If you have questions about the security features of this site, you may send an e-mail to email@example.com.
We send to all new registrants an e-mail to verify password and username information. Once you have established an account with us, you will occasionally receive information relating to our new merchandise and service offerings, activities at our stores, and other information that may be of interest to you.
