2 – How we collect data about you
We may collect your information in the following ways:
When making a purchase – If you use our Services to make a purchase, we request certain Personal Information for the purpose of facilitating current and future transactions. In an effort to facilitate your payments, we collect certain financial information from you, such as your payment card number and authentication details. We employ a third-party provider for processing credit card payments. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but may not use it for other purposes. We do not have access to or retain any of your payment information other than in a tokenized form. By making a purchase through the Services, you give us consent to use and provide your financial information as we consider necessary to process the transaction.
Communications you initiate with us – If you contact us in person, by phone, email, instant message, live chat, social media, or by some other means (either through our Services or through TPS), we may keep a record of your contact information and correspondence for later reference. When we send you emails, we may track whether you open emails to enhance our Services and deliver more delightful and helpful emails.

3 – How we respond to Do Not Track Signals
Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome) incorporate a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) or similar feature to signal that a user does not want to have his or her online activity and behavior tracked. If a website responds to DNT signals, the browser can block that website from collecting certain information about the browser’s user. Please note, however, there is no industry consensus as to what site operators should do with regard to these signals. Accordingly, unless and until the law is interpreted to require us to do so, we do not monitor or take action with respect to DNT signals or other mechanisms. For more information on DNT, visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com
4 – Updates to Policy
We reserve the right to vary this policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to our practices or for other operational, legal, or regulatory reasons. Our updated policy will be displayed on our Platform(s), and by continuing to use and access the Platform, following such changes, you agree to be bound by any variation made by us.
