How we use information
We do not share your information with outside parties or other organisations without your permission, unless required to do so by law. We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties. Personal information will not be kept for longer than it is required.
We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals. Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
The information we do not collect
Our website doesn’t directly collect or store Credit/Debit Card Information and it isn’t retained for any marketing purposes. Payment information is captured through 3rd party providers.
