For each visitor to our web page, our web server automatically recognizes the consumer's domain name, account and e-mail address (where possible). We collect only the domain name, but not the e-mail address of visitors to our web page, the e-mail addresses of those who communicate with us via e-mail, aggregate information on what pages consumers access or visit, user-specific information on what pages consumers access or visit, information volunteered by the consumer, such as survey information and/or site registrations.
The information we collect, such as name, e-mail address and other contact information, billing information et cetera, is used to improve the content of our web page, used to customize the content and/or layout of our page to suit each individual visitor, used to notify consumers about updates to our website, or used by The HomeProducts ToGo Network to contact consumers for marketing purposes.
If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friends name and e-mail address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time e-mail inviting him or her to visit the site. The HomeProducts ToGo Network stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time e-mail and for tracking the success of our referral program.

With respect to cookies:
The HomeProducts ToGo Network uses both session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies permit us to remember information about individual users within a session (e.g., the account you are logged into) and persistent cookies allow us to remember information between sessions (e.g. shopping basket contents). Only session cookies are linked indirectly to account information, billing addresses, credit card numbers, etc. Persistent cookies only link to anonymous info such as shopping basket contents.
Shopping carts are linked to persistent cookies. You will retain the same shopping cart between browser sessions. However, shopping carts are not linked to accounts; if you login, add items to your cart, and then login as the same user from a different machine you will have an empty basket. Scrapbooks, on the other hand, are not maintained directly in cookies. Instead, they are associated with accounts. This way, when you login to your account, you will always see your scrapbook.
With respect to ad servers and third parties:
We do not partner with or have special relationships with any ad server companies, nor do we share any personally identifiable information with any third parties. If our information practices change at some time in the future we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice on our home page. If you are concerned about how your information is used, please check our web site periodically.
Upon request we provide site visitors with access to financial information (e.g., credit card account information) that we maintain about them, unique identifier information (e.g., customer number or password) that we maintain about them, transaction information (e.g., dates on which customers made purchases, amounts and types of purchases) that we maintain about them, contact information (e.g., name, address, phone number) that we maintain about them. Consumers can access this information by e-mailing us, writing to us at the above address or accessing the “My Account” section of the website.

When we receive and transfer financial information, we route you to a secure shopping page (the URL address contains an "s" after the "http"). We have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our site. To best ensure the security of your credit card information while using our website, it is important that you sign out of your account and close your browser window after each visit.
