How do we protect your information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter and submit your personal information.
You may register your e-mail address on our website if you would like to receive our email newsletter.

You may also join our Birthday Club for a free gift on your birthday. We will send you an email notification 30 days before your birthday. Your email address won’t be used for anything else.
Our email service provides a “double opt-in” feature that requires you to confirm your wish to submit your data. After you complete the form on our website, you will receive an e-mail sent to the address you provided. You must click a link in the e-mail to confirm your desire to provide your information. This prevents someone else from entering your data without your knowledge.
