1. Data Collection and Use
This Section describes the information we collect when you use our Site and how we make use of that information, including what information is shared with third parties. Some of the information is Personally Identifiable Information ("PII"). When we use the term "PII", we mean information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household. PII does not include:
- Publicly available information from government records.
- Deidentified or aggregated consumer information.
- Information excluded from the CCPA’s (defined below) scope, like:
- health or medical information covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the California Confidentiality of Medical Information Act (CMIA) or clinical trial data; or
- personal information covered by certain sector-specific privacy laws, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FRCA), the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) or California Financial Information Privacy Act (FIPA), and the Driver’s Privacy Protection Act of 1994.
To make a purchase on our Site, we need PII including your full name, email address, phone number, shipping & billing addresses, and credit card details. This information is used to confirm, process, record, and ship your order as well as send you communications regarding your order such as order confirmations, tracking information, and other order updates. Your IP address is also collected, which is used for fraud prevention.
Your shipping address is provided to third party service providers (UPS and TaxJar) to help show shipping options and to calculate state sales tax. Please refer to those service provider’s privacy policies on how they manage your data.
In order to process and record orders, PII is securely stored and transferred between our website database, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, and Warehouse Management System (WMS). If you are a California consumer, you have the right to request more information about these systems by Contacting Us.
When you create an account on our Site, we request PII including your full name, email address, and to create a password. Once you create an account, you can add your shipping address and billing address to make checkout faster. This information is securely stored in our Site backend database. We use account information to customize Site experiences, track purchase history, and improve your experience on our Site. If you would like to delete your account, please contact us.
Giveaways and Contests:
Occasionally, our Site will collect PII to run contests. If you participate in a contest, we require you to provide us with your name, email, and phone number. If the contest prize is a product, the winner(s) will need to provide their shipping address. This information is used to administer contests, contact winners, send out giveaways, and for future marketing campaigns. Your participation is not required and, if you sign up using your email, you can unsubscribe at any time using the link at the bottom of the email or by contacting us.
We use MailChimp, a third party service provider, to collect user emails and send marketing emails. If you provide us your email address, we will only use it to send you marketing and promotional emails if you opted-in. You can unsubscribe from these emails at any time using the link at the bottom of the email or by contacting us. We also use PII to personalize your website experience and to deliver content and product and service offerings relevant to your interests, including targeted offers and ads through our Site.
Access, Correction, and Deletion of your Data:
You have the right to review and change any PII and to request that we delete your information. To make such a request, you will need to contact us here and verify your identity. If you have an account on our Site, you can access, update, and delete your information by logging into your account. If you are subscribed to receive marketing emails from us, you can unsubscribe any time using the link at the bottom of the emails or by contacting us. Please be aware that we may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.
2. California Consumers Rights
California residents have specific rights on how we handle their PII. The information in this Section 2 (California Consumers Rights) applies to all users of our Site but the additional rights apply solely to visitors, users, and others who reside in the State of California, and do not apply to employment-related PII collected from California-based employees, job applicants, contractors, or similar individuals. Additionally, where indicated, this Section 2 (California Consumers Rights) does not apply to PII reflecting a written or verbal business-to-business communication ("B2B personal information"). You can learn more about California consumer rights and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) on California's OAG website. Any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this Section 2 (California Consumers Rights).

Who We Disclose PII To:
Data Request Rights:
As a California consumer, you have the right to make verifiable access and deletion requests no more than twice in a 12-month period after providing a verifiable consumer request. A verifiable consumer request can be made using the contact methods provided at in the "Contact Us" section at the bottom of the page. You may also authorize someone to make a verifiable consumer request on your behalf or you can make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. It is important that your request provide sufficient information to allow us to reasonably identify you or the person about whom we collected PII and describes your request with sufficient detail so that we can respond to it. We cannot respond to requests that do not provide sufficient information.
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 45 days unless the complexity and volume of requests warrant more under applicable law), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your PII that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
Data Access Requests:
You have the right to know the categories of PII we have collected about you in the last 12 months, the categories of sources from which PII is collected, the business purposes for collecting PII data, the specific PII data we collected about you (also called a data portability request), and the categories of PII data disclosed for business purposes. To submit a data access request, please use one of the contact methods provided at in the "Contact Us" section at the bottom of the page and let us know you want to make a "California Consumer Data Access Request". We do not provide these access or portability rights for B2B personal information.
Data Deletion Requests:
You have the right to request that we delete your PII subject to certain exceptions. To submit a data access request, please use one of the contact methods provided at in the "Contact Us" section at the bottom of the page and let us know you want to make a "California Consumer Data Deletion Request".
We may deny your deletion request if we are unable to verify your identity after making all reasonable efforts or if any of the following apply:
- Complete the transaction for which we collected the PII, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted in accordance with federal law, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
- Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
- Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
- Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
- Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).
- Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
- Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
- Comply with a legal obligation.
- Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

We will not discriminate against you for exercising your CCPA rights.

We may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your PII’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time. We currently provide financial incentives through our giveaways and contests described in Section 1. Data Collection and Use.
