  • To improve our website (we continually strive to improve our website offerings based on the information and feedback we receive from you).
  • To administer a contest, promotion, survey or other site feature.
  • To send periodic emails
  • To respond to your inquiries

Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about specials, new products or services, or changes to this privacy policy.

How do we protect your information?
