ABOUT THE PERSONAL INFORMATION THIS WEBSITE COLLECTS AND HOW IT IS USED

This website routinely collects information about its visitors, subscribers,
members, and customers.  This information is obtained in various ways,
such as:


VISITOR, SUBSCRIBER, MEMBER, OR CUSTOMER INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM ‘REGISTRATION’

Registration means that the Visitor, Subscriber, Member or Customer takes
active, positive steps to communicate information to this website.  This
can include pages or ‘pop ups’ where you register for a newsletter or
subscribe to a mailing list; it can include your participation in visitor
surveys; it can include requesting information from the website via email,
mail, or courier; it may be from joining an affiliate program or other
membership organization, paid or unpaid; it may be from ordering a
product.
Occasionally complete credit card information may be provided to the
website via fax or a fill-in form rather than regular secure merchant
service processing.  This information is kept at the highest level of
security and is never divulged to anyone except the merchant service
provider or for the purpose of communication with the customer.


ONLINE ORDERING


Online ordering via SSL encrypted communication provided by shopping cart
services supporting merchant service companies like Visa and Master Card
provides information to the website but does not provide complete credit
card numbers.  In the process of online ordering, the customer provides,
name, address, city, state, email address, phone number, CVV2 (back of
card) number, and, occasionally a member password.  You should consider
all this information available to the website.  This information is used
to deliver the product, but under the Purchase Agreement you also approve
its use for general solicitation purposes.


VISITOR EMAIL INQUIRIES

Website visitors who wish to communicate with the website do so under two
conditions:  one, they give their permission for contact by the website;
two, they are subject to any ‘submission’ provisions of the Terms of Use,
Purchase Agreement, or this Privacy Policy.  While your email address may
or may not be used to solicit you, it is added to the website’s general
solicitation database.


CUSTOMER EMAIL OR TESTIMONIALS

If you are a customer and send an email to the website, or if you communicate
with the site by phone or mail, the website collects information about
your communication and by communicating with the site you give your
