HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION:

We will use your personal information to provide you with our products and services and to help us operate our business. The information we collect is used for multiple purposes. If you make a purchase on our website, we collect several types of data from you and use it in multiple ways: First, we use your shipping address to make sure that our products arrive at your door. We may also use your contact information to send you a receipt of purchase. We also analyze the data you provide us and your behavior on our website to ensure that the activity is not fraudulent.

your information for our own legitimate interests, to fulfill a contract with you, or to comply with legal obligations imposed on us.

 

OUR USE OF COOKIES:

    Cookies are little bits of computer code that collect data by tagging along with you while you browse. Most websites, including ours, wouldn’t work very well without certain cookies. They allow us to prevent crashes, display information, fix bugs, and ensure the security of our site (and your account). These types of cookies are often called “strictly necessary” cookies.

Keep in mind that certain features of our site may not be available to you.
