Information from Viewing Our Emails
We use a third-party service called Campaign Monitor to manage our email lists, power our contact forms and send order confirmation messages when you place an order with us online. This service helps us ensure that we comply with CANSPAM Act regulations in the US, General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) in the EU, and the upcoming California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). This email service allows us to see when emails are opened, what links are clicked and when they are clicked. It also logs your geographic location at the city level at the time these links are clicked. We DO NOT want this information, and we are working with our provider to disable this feature for us. If you do not want us to have access to this information, select the Privacy option that says, “No, I prefer to keep my email use private.” when signing up for our email newsletters. You can also update this setting by clicking the “update your email preferences” link at the bottom of every email we send.
How We Use Your Information
