[Kolo to comment: We retain your personal information for as long as is reasonably necessary to provide the Service, process and verify orders, exchanges and refunds, and provide customer service.]
Please see below YOUR RIGHTS TO YOUR INFORMATION to learn how to ask us to erase your personal information.
HOW DO WE SHARE AND DISCLOSE THE INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT?
Third party marketers
We do or might share personally identifiable information with business partners and third parties (for example, other marketers, websites, advertisers, and commercial and not for profit organizations) that want to market products or services to you. We provide you the opportunity to “opt out” of (stop) use of your personally identifiable information for such marketing purposes. Please see the section below called “You can opt out of receiving marketing communications” for details.]
Our Service does or might contain links to third party websites and services whose information practices are or might be different from our own. We are not responsible for, do not vouch for, and have no control over the third parties who might be receiving or collecting information from or about you. Please refer to those third parties’ privacy policies and statements before submitting any information.
Sponsors and co-promotions
We do or might offer content or services that are sponsored by or co-branded with identified third parties. As a result, such third parties might obtain personally identifiable information that you provide in connection with such content or services. We are not responsible for, and we do not monitor or control, information provided to or collected by such third parties.
Your opting out of targeted advertising via these programs is intended to stop certain targeted advertising, but still will allow the collection of usage data for some purposes, including research, analytics and internal operations. We are not responsible for the operation of these opt out mechanisms and does not assure that they will work.
Legal and law enforcement purposes
We may disclose personally identifiable information in response to legal process, for example in response to a court order or a subpoena, or in response to requests from law enforcement or other government agencies. We also may disclose such information to third parties in connection with fraud detection and prevention activities, or when we believe it is necessary or appropriate to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding known, suspected or anticipated (i) illegal activities or fraud, (ii) harm or threats to the safety and well-being of any person or property, (iii) violations of our Terms of Service, or (iv) violations of our rights, or the rights of others, or violations of law.
Transfer of our business
We may transfer all information about you in connection with a transaction for the sale or transfer of our company, business, or assets. Such a transaction might be (but is not limited to) a merger, acquisition, asset sale, dissolution, bankruptcy, reorganization, or reincorporation.
COOKIES, WEB BEACONS AND OTHER TRACKING TOOLS.
We and our third party service providers and business partners may send “cookies” to your computer or device or use similar technologies to enhance your experience at our Service. “Cookies” are files that can identify you as a unique user and store your personal preferences as well as technical information (including click through and click stream data). Cookies manage and measure the performance of advertisements displayed on or delivered by or through us
and/or other networks or sites. We do or might use “persistent” cookies (which remain on your computer until you delete them) or “temporary” cookies (which remain only until you close your browser).
We also might use web beacons. These are small strings of code or techniques that deliver a graphic image on a web page for the purpose of transferring data, such as (i) the IP (Internet Protocol) address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the web beacon appears, (ii) the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) of the page on which the web beacon appears, (iii) the time the page containing the web beacon was viewed, (iv) the type of browser that fetched the web beacon, and (v) the identification number of any cookie on the computer previously placed by that server.
Our Service also might use locally stored objects (sometimes referred to as “Flash cookies”) to provide certain content, such as video on demand, video clips, or animation. Adobe’s Flash player and similar applications use this technology to remember settings, preferences, and usage similar to browser cookies. Flash cookies are not managed through your web browser, but you can access your Flash management tools from Adobe’s web site (which website we do not monitor, administer or control).
When corresponding with you via HTML capable email, web beacons tell us whether you received and opened our email.
On their own, cookies or web beacons generally do not contain or reveal any personally identifiable information. However, if you give us personally identifiable information, that information can be linked to the data stored in the cookies or web beacons.
You may adjust your browser to reject cookies from us or from any other web site. Additionally, by setting your web browser to display HTML emails as text only, you may be able to prevent the use of some web beacons. Please review the “Help” section of your browser for more information. Certain Service areas and features might be accessible only with cookies or similar devices activated. As such, your decision to limit or disable cookies or similar devices could adversely affect your ability to use or access certain Service areas and features.
OUR SERVICE CURRENTLY DOES NOT RESPOND TO DO NOT TRACK (DNT) SIGNALS.
Some browsers enable its users to send a “Do Not Track” (or DNT) signal to a website visited by the user to request that the website disable tracking of the visiting user. Our Service currently does not respond to DNT signals.
OUR REASONABLE EFFORTS TO PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY ARE NOT PERFECT

We have not certified with the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Safe Harbor Program to address data transfers from the European Union and Switzerland.

We do not assure that your information will be stored, shared or used only within the U.S.
WE DO NOT PERMIT SPAM OR SPYWARE
We don’t permit use of spam, spyware, malware, or anything else that we do not intend our Service to provide. We don’t send emails to anyone without their permission.
