WHAT INFORMATION The SIL COLLECTS
The SIL collects and stores information from visitors to this web site, including those who register their information or who use the online store. For example, when you place an order, we collect and store some or all of the following information that you provide: name, billing address, shipping address, email address, telephone number, credit card number and expiration date.
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 for our own marketing and internal business purposes, and to contact you about sales, special offers and new site features, unless you have opted not to receive promotional communications in connection with this web site. To serve you better, we may combine information you give us with other information which is publicly available.
We may collect and store certain other information automatically whenever you interact with this web site. For example, we may collect your IP address, browser information and reference site domain name every time you visit this web site. We also may collect information regarding customer traffic patterns and site usage. This information is used to analyze and improve this web site and to provide our customers with a fulfilling shopping experience.
We may engage third parties to perform services in connection with the operation of our business. Examples of these services include payment processing and authorization, fraud protection and credit risk reduction, product customization, order fulfillment and shipping, marketing and promotional material distribution, web site evaluation, data analysis and, where applicable, data cleansing. We provide personal information to these third parties, but we authorize them to use this information only in connection with the services they perform.
The security of your information is very important to us and will only collect personally identifiable information to the extent deemed reasonably necessary to serve you in view of our legitimate business purposes as set out above. We use secure socket layer (SSL) encryption technology to protect the security of your online order information.
While we implement these and other security measures on our sites, please note that 100% security is not always possible. You play a role in protecting your information as well. Because your password permits access to your personal information, please keep your password secret and do not disclose it to others.
