Security and Privacy

Q. Is online ordering really secure?

Q. Can I place my order by e-mail?

However, we do take orders by mail and fax. Fill your Shopping Cart and check out. After you enter your billing and shipping information, you can review your order. At the Review Your Order screen, go to the bottom of the screen and click the button labeled "Mail or Fax Order Form."

Q. Do you share my personal information?
A. No, we will never share, sell, or rent individual personal information unless ordered by a court of law.

Q. Do you share my e-mail address with other companies?
A. No, we will never share, sell, or rent e-mail addresses unless ordered by a court of law.
