We partner with Digital Media Agencies to place our advertising on the Internet. These advertising companies collect anonymous information about your visits to our web site. This technology involves the use of third party cookies that allow them to develop personalized advertising so that it directly relates to offers that may be of interest to you. You may choose to opt-out of this service we have with our third-party advertising partner. We may also use cookies to provide similar enhanced online marketing to you based on your interests and preferences.

Your Choices Regarding Use Of The Information We Collect

You have several choices regarding our handling of your nonpublic personally identifiable information.

Direct Mail : We use your information collected once you have placed an order with us online, to send you direct mails as part of our marketing campaigns. If you shop at our website and wish to be removed from the list of customers that receive direct mail, please contact customer service to opt out of it. 

Email Newsletter : We use your email address from your online orders to send you catered emails, as part of our online marketing campaign. You can opt out of this anytime by unsubscribing to the newsletter. 

Because customer lists often are prepared well in advance of an offering (sometimes a few months before the offer is made), you may continue to receive some offers after you send us a request not to use your information for specified marketing purposes. We appreciate your patience and understanding in giving us time to carry out your request.
