Information We Collect About You
When you purchase something from us, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address, billing information, and email address.
When you browse our store, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.

With the exception of users that purchase a product, we do not link IP addresses with any personally identifiable information of users in a manner that identifies a particular individual, unless otherwise stated below and which is treated as personally identifiable information. Therefore, we treat such information for users as non-personally identifiable information as described further below.
In addition to the personally identifiable information described above, we may also collect some billing information such as name, billing address and shipping address, and we accept, but do not collect, purchasing information, such as a method of payment – credit card, PayPal, etc., to make purchasing offers, products and/or services easier and more convenient for you.
We may also collect management information on our email campaigns, such as whether you have read an email sent by us, when and how many times, etc. We will use this information to improve content and Services and to inform groups of users about relevant products and services.
