Internet user privacy is of upmost importance to us and our customers. Our success depends on our ability to maintain the trust of our customers. To this end, we have two overriding policies:

Message recipient policy

Before customers can receive email messages, advertising or promotions, customers must have agreed to receive such messages, by either purchasing from us or by opting into one of our mailing lists. Any recipient may request at any time to be removed from our list, and we will comply with that request. In addition, we will thoroughly investigate any allegations made by recipients relating to unsolicited messages.

Policy against advertising our website using unsolicited email messages

We require that all e-mails promoting our business or its products are sent only to customers who have agreed to receive such messages. We prohibit any advertising of our brand and Web site using unsolicited email messages. If you feel you've been sent unsolicited emails promoting our brand or website and would like to register a complaint, please email us using our contact page. We will immediately investigate all allegations made related to unsolicited messages.

Your email address is safe with us.

  • We never sell or share your email addresses with other companies.
  • You can unsubscribe at any time.
  • We require that each e-mail message sent out from us includes an easy way for subscribers to remove themselves via an unsubscribe link.
  • If you receive a newsletter or email and decide you don't like it, simply click the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email.
  • If you feel you've been sent unsolicited email and would like to register a complaint, please email us using our contact page.

What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your browser or the hard drive of your computer or other device when you visit the Site.
