      3. Information from Other Sources. We may obtain information, including PII, from third parties and sources other than the Website. If information from other sources is combined or associated with PII collected through the Website, this combined information will be treated as PII in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We may also receive information about you, including log and usage data and cookie information, from third-party sites that integrate our services, including embeds and advertising technology.
    2. How Collected Information is Used – We may use the information that is collected in a variety of ways in providing the Website, including, but not limited to, the following:

      1. At your request, we will have any reference to you deleted or blocked from our records.

We are not responsible for the content or privacy and security practices and policies of third-party sites or services to which links or access are provided through the Website. We encourage you to learn about third parties’ privacy and security policies before providing them with information.
    6. Third Party Servers – Certain information stored or transmitted by us hereunder, including PII, may be stored, managed, or otherwise handled by third parties. You understand and agree that we are not liable, accountable, or otherwise responsible for information communicated to or through third party servers and you hereby release us from any associated liability or responsibility consistent with the indemnifications, liability limitations, and privacy policy included herein. If you are located in the European Union or European Economic Area, please note that we will not transfer your information, including PII, to a country outside of the European Union or European Economic Area.
    7. Data Security – We follow generally accepted standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. Credit card transactions and order fulfillment processed through the Website may be handled by established third party banking institutions and processing agents. We maintain appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect PII against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorized alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, misuse, and any other unlawful form of processing of the PII in our possession. This may include, for example, firewalls, SSL technology, application-layer security features, password protection, and other access and authentication controls. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. We also cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If you believe your PII has been compromised, please contact us at the address provided in the “Contact” section. If we learn of a security systems breach, we will inform you and the authorities of the occurrence of the breach in accordance with applicable law.
    8. Data Retention – We only retain the PII collected from you for a limited period of time as long as we need such data to fulfill the purposes for which it was initially collected, unless otherwise required by law. It may take additional time for your personal data to be de-indexed from search engines, depending on those search engines’ practices, over which we may have limited or no control. We will retain and use information as necessary to comply with legal obligations, resolution of disputes, and enforcement of our agreements.
    9. EU-US Privacy – We make all best reasonable efforts to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation framework as set forth by the European Union regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal data from European Union member countries. We adhere to the requirements of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement. We are hosted in the United States and by using the Website you authorize us to transfer, store, and use your PII in the United States and any other country where we operate. Users in the European Economic Area have the right to request access to, rectification of, or erasure of their personal data; to data portability in certain circumstances; to request restriction of processing; to object to processing; and to withdraw consent for processing where they have previously provided consent. These rights can be exercised by contacting us as set forth in the “Contact” section.
