  • Our checkout page is streamlined to one page and allows you to also register at the same time. On this page, we collect your billing and shipping information(if applicable), payment information, telephone numbers, e-mail address, and require a password of your choice so that you may access your account in the future.
  • In the 'My Dashboard', there are subsections that allow you to add, edit, or delete all information associated to your account.

Who We Share Your Information With:
At any time, we may share a limited amount of your shipping information, which includes your name, address, telephone, and e-mail address with FedEx, UPS, USPS and/or any third-party drop ship companies to allow an order to be fulfilled and shipped.

To process your payment, we transfer all payment information to our payment processor, Authorize.net.

We use the industry standard SSL encryption. At the most basic level, it is a piece of software installed on the server which encrypts all information moving in and out. This means it is secured so that no one other than the intended recipient can see or intercept that information.

Our SSL includes the highest strength 2048-bit signatures with 256 bit encryption issued by Comodo, recognized by 99.9% of all desktop and mobile browsers.
