Information that is gathered
Like many other websites out there, we utilize Google Analytics, which is a free service to provide website statistics. It provides us with anonymous data on what site you came from, what pages you visited, how long you visited, what OS/browser you were using. We use this data to tell us what parts of the site are popular, how many people visit per month, etc. Nothing scary, we promise. Here's some more info on how Google safeguards your data and also the Terms of Service for Google Analytics.
If you order something from us, you'll be required to use PayPal for the transaction. There's no way we want to get into the business of collecting/processing credit cards, no thanks. They conduct the entire credit card transaction using industry standard 128 bit SSL encryption, and simply mail us verification that the order has been processed.
How the Information is used
If you interact with us through the contact form, or website comments, we use that info to communicate with you, either one-on-one (contact form) or in public (comments). For the data gatherd by Google Analytics, we use that information to improve our website and overall user experience. We may show this data (which again, is anonymous) to people wishing to advertise on this website.
