3. Types of Information We Collect
We collect information about you such as your contact information and payment information.
We do not knowingly collect personal information directly from children under the age of 13 without parental consent. Our website is a general audience site and is not specifically targeted to or intended for use by children.
We need to collect personal information in order to provide the products and services you request. If you do not provide the information requested, we may not be able to provide you with these products and services.
4. How We Collect Your Information
We only collect information about you in one way:
4.1 Information you provide to us, such as while making a purchase.
6. How We Use Your Information
We use your personal information to provide you with our products and services and to operate our online business. We often use the information we collect for multiple purposes. For example, if you make a purchase on our website, we collect several types of data from you and use it in multiple ways: First, we use your shipping address to make sure that our products arrive at your door. We may also use your contact information to send you a receipt of purchase. We will also analyze the data you provide us and your behavior on our website to ensure that the activity is not fraudulent. Finally, we use your purchase information for other business-related purposes like accounting and financial reporting.
We may also combine information we collect from you with information we obtain from other sources. This may include your online purchase transactions and other interactions you have with us and our partners.
We often obtain your consent to use your information but sometimes, obtaining your consent is not needed because we may use your information for our own legitimate interests, to fulfill a contract with you, or to comply with legal obligations imposed on us. For example, when you make purchases online, we process your information to fulfill our contractual obligations. When you engage with us online, we have a legal obligation to ensure that you are not attempting to defraud, us or our customers.
7. How We Share Personal Information
We may share your personal information with our affiliated companies and brands or with third parties who provide services to you or us, with promotional partners. We do not share your information with social media companies, or with other third parties.

8.2 Information Retention.
We will retain your personal information for as long as needed to provide the service to you (for example, your email address, if you agree to updates or newsletters) or as needed to fulfill our own obligations, such as preventing fraud, meeting regulatory requirements, resolving disputes, improving our services or maintaining security, and in each case, as consistent with applicable law.
