Sharing Your Personal Information
We share your Personal Information with third parties to help us use your Personal Information, as described above. For example, we use Wordpress and Woocommerce from Automattic to power our website and online store. We also make use of Automattic's integrations with payment gateways, shipping and tax services to help us fulfill customer orders, and we use the Akismet anti-spam service on our contact forms. You can learn more about Automattic's software here: https://automattic.com/, https://woocommerce.com/document/privacy-payments/, https://akismet.com/
When you submit an online form from our site we will receive an email and store your device's IP address, a timestamp, your name, your email address, your message and any other information you provide. That same information may be sent to Automattic's Aksimet anti-spam service for analysis but is not stored by them.
We use Google reCaptcha anti-spam service on our contact forms. We use Google Maps to display our street address location and to help customers find us. We use Google fonts to display text on our site in a variety of styles.
Our website's integration with Google Analytics sends page view events, video play events, shopping cart additions and removals, product listing views and clicks, product detail views, and purchase information to Google for storage and analysis.
