Information Collection & Use
Registration: Visitors do not need to register or disclose any personally
identifiable information at this web site.
Server Technology, Cookies, and Log Files: This web site does not use tracking
"cookies." However, like all web sites, each time you click to request a web
page from this server (and each time a web page loads a graphic image),
information about that "request" is stored in a "log file" (logged data includes
the date, time, IP address, page requested, browser and OS information, and the
referring URL). The log-file information does not identify individual users. We
use this log-file information, to analyze trends, to administer the site, and to
gather information about the interests and preferences of our audience.
Third Party Collection of Data: This site's web pages display some content
and/or advertising which is directly served or delivered by third parties, such
as Amazon.com and Google.com. These advertisements are delivered through script
code in this site's HTML web pages, which cause your computer to request the
advertising information from the third party's server. These third parties
usually deliver a cookie to your computer, and log your request activity in
their log files.
Third Party Web Site Destinations: This web site includes thousands of "web
links" to other web sites operated by many other individuals, companies, and
activity, and some may also utilize other strategies to track and monitor your
use of their web sites. Some of the links to external web sites pass through
intermediaries such as ShareASale.com and Commission Junction, which also track
your click, store a cookie, and transfer your request to another web server.
These intermediaries (and their cookies) are later checked if you make a
purchase at the third party destination web site, and if so, the intermediary
stores information about that transaction so that the third parties can account
and pay us an advertising fee in exchange for directing customers to their web
sites. Some merchants share aggregate purchase information with us; for example,
Amazon.com reports the specific items that were purchased by consumers that were
referred from this web site; we use this information when updating this web
site's content and advertising. However, these third-party merchants do not
share any personal identifying information with us.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
This web site does not collect or share any personally identifiable information
with third parties. The only information "sharing" occurs in the manner
specified in the preceding paragraph. We do not link aggregate user data with
personally identifiable information.
You may choose to block the collection of some information by our advertisers,
by configuring your web browser to refuse to accept or return "cookies," or by
utilizing third-party "Internet Security" software which may block some
third-party advertising and some trackable links to third-party web sites. If
you use this technology, you will not see some relevant content seen by other
visitors to this web site, because your software will edit, delete, or alter the
content as it is loaded into your computer.
More About Cookies
A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for
record-keeping purposes. This site does not place or retrieve tracking cookies.
However, as noted above, when some third-party advertisements are displayed at
this site and when you click on external web links, persistent cookies are used
by those third-party sites (and some aggregate data made possible by use of
those persistent cookies is used by this owner of this web site.) You can
configure your web browser to block any "third-party cookies," or to block all
cookies (but by doing so, you will likely be unable to use certain features on
other web sites). You can remove persistent cookies by using utility software or
by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file.
Third-party web sites may also track and cross-match your cookie and "clickstream"
data with other data you disclose to those third party web sites (for example,
Amazon.com stores information about the pages you view and the products you buy,
to suggest other related merchandise which may interest you).
Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs)
This site does not directly utilize (but advertisers may utilize) a software
technology called clear gifs (sometimes called "web beacons" or "web bugs").
Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to
cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to
cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive (where users can view
them, though not easily), clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are
smaller than the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Advertisers may
tie the information gathered by clear gifs to any personally identifiable
information which they have obtained. You may be able to block this technology
by using third-party "Internet Security" software.
We reserve the right to disclose any information in our "log files," as required
by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights
and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process
served on our Web site. (Since we don't gather any personal identifying
information about you, we can't inform you if this occurs.)
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information
submitted to us. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method
of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to
use commercially acceptable means to protect any information gathered in our
"log files," we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
In the event that this web site goes through a business transition, such as a
merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its
assets, the information collected by this web site will likely be among the
This website is an index of links to other online shopping
sites and assumes no responsibility for the performance or use of products or
services offered by those sites.
Changes in this Privacy Statement

aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what
circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We reserve the right to modify this
privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently.
