Our Site is not intended for nor directed at children under 18 years of age. No one under age 18 may access the Site nor provide any personal information to or on the Site. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 18. If you are under 18, do not use or provide any information on the Site or on or through any of its features.

- Information We Collect About You
We collect several types of information from and about users of the Site, including:
(a) Personal Information. This is information by which you may be personally identified, such as name, shipping address and billing address, e-mail address, telephone number, payment information (including bank account or payment card details, if you make a purchase from us) or any other information the Site collects that is defined as personal or personally identifiable information under an applicable law. It also includes records and copies of your correspondence (including email addresses), if you contact us. Certain of this information is optional to provide.
(b) General Information About You. This is information that is about you but individually does not identify you.
(c) Information About Your Connection and Usage. This includes information about your internet connection, the equipment you use to access the Site and your usage details, such as any of your search queries or activity logs on the Site. This “log data” may include information such as your device Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, device name, operating system version, the configuration of the app or browser when utilizing the Site, the time and date of your use of the Site, and other statistics.
- How We Collect Information About You
We collect personal information and general information about you directly from you when you provide it to us through the Site, such as by creating an account, purchasing products or services from us, or by submitting User Content to us (as described in our Terms of Service). We may also ask you for personal information when you report a problem with the Site.
We collect certain general information about you and information about your connection as you navigate the Site. Information collected automatically may include usage details, IP addresses, and information collected through cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies.
We may also collect certain personal information from third parties, provided that you have authorized those third parties to share information with us, for example by making a purchase using a Third-Party Service provider on the Site.
As you navigate through and interact with the Site, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain personal information or information about your connection and usage. The technologies we use for this automatic data collection, and the types of information collected by these technologies, may include:
(b) Log Files and Web Beacons. These are scripts or other files (also known as “tags” or “pixels”) we use to track actions occurring on the Site related to your connection or usage. The use of these files on the Site may potentially result in the retention of personal information by third parties that manage these log files, beacons, or tags.
(c) Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a web analysis service provided by Google LLC. Google utilizes personal information collected to track and examine the use of the Site, to prepare reports on its activities, and to share them with other Google services. Google may use the personal information collected to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. We may use Google Analytics to automatically collect information about your connection and usage of the Site.
(d) Hosting or Displaying Third Party Services or Content. Certain key components of the Site are hosted or run using Third Party Services including Meta Pixel and JustUno. These allow the Site to be presented to you as a unified platform. Such platforms provide a wide range of tools to the Site (such as analytics, user registration, commenting, database management, e-commerce, payment processing) that imply the collection and handling of personal information. In addition, we may display content owned or published by third parties on external platforms. This allows you to view and interact with this third-party content directly from the Site. This type of service might still collect web traffic data for the pages where the service is installed, even when users do not use it.
We do not alter these collection practices when we see a Do Not Track signal from your browser.
