The information we collect
Whenever you visit us – online or in our place of business – we obtain from you the information we need to complete your transaction. This may include your name, mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address. If you use a credit or debit card or pay by check, we must obtain your account number to complete the transaction. The personal information you provide may be cross-checked against your credit card information to verify your identity and authorize the use of your card. We do not collect nor seek other personal information or extraneous information about you in any manner.
Information we do not share with others
We do not share, sell or trade e-mail addresses, information collected as part of a survey, or information about you or your household. We do not contribute to or participate in shared or cooperative databases, which give other companies access to your personal information. We do not release credit card or financial information for use by other companies. Any information you provide while using our site stays with us and is only available for you to use for your convenience.
We may provide information to outside companies that help us bring you the products and services we offer. For example, we may work with an outside company to pack and ship a merchandise order placed in our gift shop. When we do so, we may provide your shipping address and name to such firms.
Please protect your information in public
If you are using a public computer, you should be sure to LOG OUT at the conclusion of your time on the computer. Doing so assures that your information is safely stored with us but is not accessible to anyone else from the computer you used. Please also be aware that some companies legally monitor e-mail messages sent and received by their employees while at work.
You will receive e-mail from us only if you have asked to receive it. We do not send unsolicited or nuisance e-mail, nor do we provide our customer database to companies that do.
