When you place an order for a product or service online, we need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number, expiration date and the credit card’s security or access code. This personal information is required so that we can process and fulfill your order, send an order or shipping confirmation, as well as notify you of your order status. All Internet transactions with us are performed on a secure server that encrypts your credit card information to ensure it is not read by unauthorized third parties.
