information. Please read and understand this policy so that you can
understand how we use your personal information. Please be aware that

Site, or participate in a survey, contest, sweepstakes, or other
promotion available on Our Site, you are agreeing to both the terms of

Collection of Information
On Our Site, you may purchase merchandise, participate in our
community features like chat rooms or bulletin boards, become a
registered user, maintain a “wish list” or store other information on Our Site, enter sweepstakes and contests, participate in surveys and
polls, e-mail or instant message, subscribe to a service, or enroll to
receive certain entertainment or information. We may need or request
certain types of personally identifiable information (i.e. information
that can directly identify you or indicate where you might be
contacted, such as name, address, date of birth, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, and credit card
information) and collect it in connection with these various activities
and offerings. We do not consider indications of your interests, likes
and dislikes, or general characteristics such as clothing size or hair
color, to be personally identifiable information unless it is somehow
grouped with other information so as to permit identification of you
specifically; but from time to time we collect such information also,
in order to provide you better service or to get to know our user base
and its general traits.
Sometimes you can submit
information about other people. For example, you might submit a
person's name and e-mail address to send an electronic gift certificate
and, if you order a gift online and want it sent directly to a friend,
you might submit the friend's name and address, should we be offering
that service. The types of personally identifiable information that
may be collected about other people at these pages may include:
recipient's name, address, date of birth, e-mail
address and telephone number.

example, we may use information you provide to process your purchases
of merchandise or to provide for merchandise delivery to your home. As
a registered user, you provide us with information that we maintain and

personalized service to you. We might also use online registries or
other databases to permit you to use and participate in certain
portions in or features of our Site. We also use information users
provide to conduct sweepstakes and contests, notify you if you win, and

like to provide you with certain information about our merchandise,
sales or other offerings, and other marketing materials designed to

communications with you more efficient. Similarly, we may use
personally identifiable information in connection with certain of our

information as may be reasonably necessary for tracking/verifying
compliance with federal, state and local laws or for editorial and
feedback solicitation purposes.
We may from time to
time augment information you give us with information from other
sources, such as information validating your address. Thus, information
