We may provide third party information necessary to fulfill an order you have placed with us. However, we give suppliers, and others involved in the distribution chain only the information needed to provide you with the products or services you order, and we require them to keep the information confidential and not to use it for other purposes. We are not responsible for any information you provide directly to these parties, and we encourage you to become familiar with their practices before disclosing information directly to them.

Protection of Personal and Credit Card Information
we do not store credit card details nor do we share customer details with any 3rd parties.

A unique “token” is substituted for your credit card number. If you become a repeat customer, you may be asked to create a password that you will give us instead of your credit card number, providing an additional layer of security.
We share your IP address, but no other Personal Data, with Google Analytics in order to obtain data about how our website is accessed and used.
