When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device.

We also collect information about you if you subscribe to any of our marketing services. Additionally, we register the information that you provide when you communicate with our customer service. We refer to all of this information described above as “Customer Information”.
Why do we collect your Personal Information?
We use the Customer Information that we collect generally to fulfill any orders placed through the Site (including processing your payment information, arranging for shipping, and providing you with invoices and/or order confirmations). Additionally, we use this Customer Information to:

We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site and your user experience (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns). We might link the Device Information with the Customer Information in order to pursue these purposes.

This may happen via transaction information including the type of services and goods you requested, your order details, delivery information, date and time the service was provided, amount charged, and payment method.
