Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on these sites. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email, online form, or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone. We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order.

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit personally identifiable information (for example, your name and address) via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

If parents believe we have collected or stored their child’s personally identifiable information, they may request it be destroyed/removed by contacting us, and we will comply in a timely manner.
