This information is used to provide the products and services that you have ordered or requested, to process and ship orders, to send order and shipping confirmations and to provide customer service. This information also may be used to contact you about sales, special offers and new website features, unless you opt not to receive promotional communications in connection with this website. We may also ask you to voluntarily provide us with demographic information, information regarding your interests or similar information in order to take advantage of or participate in some of the website’s features.

Web beacons can be very small or invisible to the user, but, in general, any electronic image viewed as part of a web page or e-mail, including html-based content, can act as a web beacon. We may use web beacons to count visitors to our web pages or to monitor how our users navigate our website, and we may include web beacons in e-mail messages in order to count how many messages we sent were actually opened or acted upon.
