This policy describes the Personal Information (e.g. name, address, email address, phone number, etc.) we gather about you, what we do with it, the safeguards we have in place to protect it, and how you can control our use of such Personal Information.

HOW WE COLLECT AND USE INFORMATION
Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) We may collect personally identifiable information (“PII”) such as your name, your contact information, your shipping information, and your billing information (such as credit card account data). We collect PII when you provide it to us, for example when you interact with our Site, place an order, or sign up for our mailing list.
We use the PII that we collect to provide services (such as to process and ship your orders or respond to customer service requests), to analyze and improve our online platforms and to conduct marketing. If you register for email or if you provide your email address to us, we will send you emails about a variety of topics such as product launches, classes and events, special sales, promotional offers, and/or sustainability topics. Please see below for your choices regarding how we collect, use, and share your PII.
We share email activity data with our marketing email provider to help them better target email deployments to consumers. While our marketing email provider has access to email address and email activity and may share bulk/non-specific activity data, no Email addresses or specific email actions are ever shared with other third parties. Should a consumer wish to opt out of this sharing, that consumer simply needs to opt out of marketing email from us.
We automatically collect certain non-personal information when you use the Site. For example, we collect information about the devices you use to connect to the Site (such as the IP address of your computer or numeric identifier of your mobile device) and about how you use the Site (such as what time you visit). We, and our advertisers and ad servers, may also collect non-personal information outside the Site to measure the success of our advertising campaigns. We use the non-personal information that we collect for a variety of purposes such as to provide and improve the Site, and to analyze our advertising.
