WHAT IS PERSONAL INFORMATION?
Personal information means information that would allow a specific individual to be identified or information that can be directly associated with an individual. For example, this includes your name, postal or e-mail address, telephone number, and demographic information. Personal information does not include aggregate information (data about a group or category of products, services or customers, from which individual customer identities have been removed). For example, information about how you use a service may be collected and combined with information about how others use the same service, but no personal information will be included in the resulting data. Likewise, information about the products you purchase may be collected and combined with information about the products purchased by others. Aggregate information about product purchases helps us understand trends and customer needs, and assists us in product selection, product ordering and sizing and the introduction of new products and services. It can also assist us in new Web site functions by looking at website browsing activities.

WHEN WE SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION?
From time to time we engage unaffiliated third parties to perform certain services. The companies that are provided with the personal information are first required to sign an agreement that obligates them to keep the information confidential and secure and prohibits them from using it for unauthorized purposes. Third party suppliers can only use the personal information that we share with them provided that they have your consent, to notify you of their offerings and to evaluate new and existing products, offerings or services. We are not responsible for any additional information you provide directly to these third parties, and we encourage you to become familiar with their privacy and security practices and policies before disclosing information to them. Except as set out above, we do not sell, rent, share or disclose the personal information to others for a fee without your consent.
