SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us.

We implement a variety of security measures when a user places an order enters, submits, or accesses their information to maintain the safety of your personal information.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act) and Minors

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the United States' consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of web sites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online. We do not specifically market to children under 13.

We do not intentionally sell or market to anyone under the age of 18. If you are under 18 years of age, you are only authorized (to the applicable extent of the law) to use this web site with the supervision and permission of a parent or guardian.
