We collect personal information about you from your interactions with us and other sources such as our third party partners. For example, we may collect personal information when you:
- subscribe for, purchase, return or exchange our products and services;

The personal information we collect may include your name, contact information such as your address, telephone number and email address, and if you make a purchase your payment information.
Often it is optional for you to provide your personal information, but other times, including in order to provide you with certain product and services, such information would normally need to be provided. For example, if you enter a contest we offer, we need to collect information need to contact you if you are a potential winner. You may choose not to provide your personal information even in such cases, but that may result in our inability to serve you.
Occasionally, we may request demographic information (like your age or gender) or information about your interests and purchasing preferences. In most instances, you do not have to provide us with this information to receive the product or service you have requested. We use this optional demographic and preference information to tailor or improve our product and service offerings, as well as for internal marketing research purposes.
