What Information Is Collected
We group the collection of user information into two categories: personal, which is information identifiable to a specific member (“Personal Information”), and aggregate, which is general demographic information that does not identify any individual member (“Aggregate Information”). Personal Information may include your name, email address, mailing address, credit card information and phone number. We may also collect certain demographic information such as your site preferences, age, gender, geographical location, language, time zone, income and education (some of the information we ask for may be optional). ADEPTT may use or disclose Aggregate Information for any purpose.
How We Use Your Information
We collect Personal Information to make our services related to this Site (“Services”) more rewarding for you to use, including billing, shipping and tracking your orders. If we have any questions or concerns regarding your order, we may use this Personal Information to contact you. We also use Personal Information for internal purposes, such as studying our customers’ preferences and improving the customers’ experiences. We may also use Personal Information to contact you for promotional purposes. We also may use Personal Information to provide customer service to you. If you enter into a sweepstakes contest or similar promotion, we may use the Personal Information you provide to administer those activities. We may combine Personal Information about you with information from other sources in order to improve the quality of our services.
We also receive and store certain Aggregate Information, which is collected passively using various technologies and cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. This Site may use such Aggregate Information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers, and how our users use and interact with the Services. Also, in an ongoing effort to better understand and serve you, we often conduct research on customer demographics, interests and behaviors based on the Personal Information and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis. We may share Aggregate Information with affiliates, agents and business partners. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our Services to current and prospective business partners and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
How is this Information Shared

Cookies and Web Beacons
Web beacons or clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies and are used to track the online movements of web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on web pages. Web beacons help us better manage content on our Site by informing us what content is effective. We do not tie the information gathered by web beacons to your Personal Information.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us. When you provide sensitive information (such as a credit card number), we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of such Personal Information. If you have any questions about security on our Site, please contact us as indicated below.
We may occasionally send you newsletters and emails regarding special offers, promotions, features and/or product updates. We may also communicate with you on behalf of third parties about special offers, promotions, features and/or product updates we think may be of interest to you or you may have opted-in to receive newsletters or special promotions from one of our trusted third party providers. If you decide you do not wish to receive these communications, you may opt-out by clicking the unsubscribe link or by following the instructions included in the communication. Note however that as the user of the Service you cannot opt-out of some administrative communications that are reasonably necessary to the Service, such as billing or service notifications.
