Collection of Personally Identifiable Information and other Information When you use our Applet, we collect and store your personal information which is provided by you from time to time.
Our primary goal in doing so is to provide you with a safe, efficient, smooth, and customized experience.
This allows us to provide services and features that most likely meet your needs, and to customize our Applet to make your experience safer and easier.
More importantly, while doing so we collect personal information from you that we consider necessary for achieving this purpose.
In general, you cannot use the Applet without revealing personal information about yourself. Once you give us your personal information, you are not anonymous to us.
Where possible, we indicate which fields are required and which fields are optional. You always have the option to not provide information by choosing not to use a particular service or feature on the Applet. We may automatically track certain information about you based upon your behavior on our Applet.
We use this information to do internal research on our users' demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand, protect and serve our users.
This information is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis.
This information would include but is not limited to your handheld device information and your IP address. We use data collection devices such as "cookies" on certain pages of the Applet to help analyze our Applet flow, measure promotional effectiveness, and promote trust and safety.
"Cookies" are small files placed on your hard drive that assist us in providing our services. We offer certain features that are only available through the use of a "cookie".
Most cookies are "session cookies," meaning that they are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of a session. You are always free to decline our cookies if your device permits, although in that case, you may not be able to use certain features on the Applet and you may be required to re-enter your password more frequently during a session.
If you send us personal correspondence, such as emails or letters, or if other users or third parties send us correspondence about your activities or postings on the Applet, we may collect such information into a file specific to you. We collect personally identifiable information (email address, name, phone number, credit card/debit card / other payment instrument details, etc.) from you when you set up an account with us. We do use your contact information to send you offers based on your previous orders and your interests.
Use of Demographic / Profile Data / Your Information We use personal information to provide the services you request. To the extent we use your personal information to market to you, we will provide you the ability to opt out of such uses. We use your personal information to resolve disputes; troubleshoot problems; help promote a safe service; customize your experience; detect and protect us against error, fraud, and other criminal activity; enforce our terms and conditions; and as otherwise described to you at the time of collection. In our efforts to continually improve our product and service offerings, we collect and analyze demographic and profile data about our users' activity on our Applet. We identify and use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Applet. Your IP address is also used to help identify you and to gather broad demographic information. We will occasionally ask you to complete optional online surveys. These surveys may ask you for contact information and demographic information (like zip code, age, or income level). We use this data to tailor your experience at our Applet, providing you with content that we think you might be interested in and displaying the content according to your preferences.
Links to Other Sites Our Applet may link to other applets/websites that may collect personally identifiable information about you. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such linked applets/websites.

Whenever you change or access your account information, we offer the use of a secure server. Once your information is in our possession we adhere to strict security guidelines, protecting it against unauthorized access.
