We use telephone numbers left for us in emails and voice mail messages only to respond to the messages. Such numbers are not used for any other purpose than to complete the order.
We commonly use customer emails to confirm orders and to send a one-time customer satisfaction questionnaire after most orders. If the customer has given us written permission, we occasionally re-print comments from the questionnaire in the “testimonial” section of our website. We reserve the right to edit those comments for grammar and clarity, however, and we identify the customer by first name, last name, city and state.
We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful. We may share certain personal information when we believe that such release is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property and safety of others and ourselves. We may also transfer personal information in the event of a corporate sale, merger, acquisition, dissolution or similar event.
