How we use your data

We use your data in the following ways:  1) to reply to you, when you have posted a comment or sent us an email; 2) if you bought something from our store, to let you know when other, similar items are available, to tell you about events and other items you might be interested in, or to follow up on your satisfaction with your purchase; 3) if you did not complete a purchase, but expressed interest in purchasing something, to follow up and see if we can help in your selection process or point you in another direction, if we don’t have it; and 4) to understand our customer demographic, needs, and product interest, so we can make better products for our customers (i.e., analytics).
