Privacy Policy

We know that you care how your information is used, and we appreciate your trust that we will use it carefully and sensibly. This notice describes our privacy policy. By visiting us, you are accepting the privacy policy described below. Please print this page for your records.

1. What Personal Information Do We Collect?

Information You Provide. We store only the information you enter such as your contact information, order request, communications with us, and preferences. We do not store your credit card, bank account, or any other highly confidential information (see section #3 for more details). You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of some of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, improving our website, and communicating with you. In addition, if you choose, we may share your information with other companies who provide goods or services that you are interested in. Please see section #4 of this policy for “opt-in/opt-out” choices available.

Cookies. Like many websites, we use “cookies”. Cookies are small programs that we transfer to your hard drive that allow us to recognize you and to provide you with a customized shopping experience. If you do not want us to use cookies, you can disable them by searching the Help menu of your web browser for instructions on how to disable or prevent the browser from accepting cookies, or set the browser to inform you when you receive a new cookie. In addition, you may visit this and other websites anonymously through the use of utilities provided by other private companies.

Other Information. Every computer has an IP (Internet Protocol) address. IP addresses of computers used to visit this site are noted. In addition, we may automatically collect other information such as email addresses, browser types, operating systems, and the URL addresses of sites clicked to and from this site.

Information from Other Sources. We might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. This may include updated delivery and address information from our shippers or other sources so that we can correct our records and deliver your next purchase or communication more easily.

2. How Do We Use Your Information?

Customized Shopping. We use your information to better serve you by providing a customized shopping experience. For example, the country and time zone information we collect from you allows us to display dates and time according to your time zone and format.

Agents. We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, and processing credit card payments (i.e., PayPal). They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

Special Offers. We may send you special offers from time to time, unless you choose to “opt-out” of receiving such offers. In addition, we may also send you special offers from other companies. Again, you may “opt-out”. If we send you offers from other businesses, we do not share your personal information with them. The offers come directly through us. Please see section #4 of this policy for “opt-in/opt-out” choices available.

Business Transfers. As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores or assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the unlikely event that we are acquired, customer information will be one of the transferred assets.

Law Enforcement. If we receive a lawful court order to release account or other personal information then we will comply with the law. We will also release information when necessary to protect the life, safety or property of others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

3. How Do We Protect the Security of Your Information?

No Confidential Information. We do not store any confidential information such as credit card numbers or bank account numbers in our database. We use a trusted and well-known third-party provider, PayPal, which keeps your credit card and bank account numbers secure and protected on their databases when you confirm your order. PayPal gives us only what you ordered and the amount you paid for the order.

Username & Password. We only store your contact information, order history, communications with us, and preferences in our database which you can access using a secure username and password. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

Email Addresses Not For Sale. We do not sell your email address to any other party. We do not like spam either and our integrity cannot be bought for any amount of money.

Reasonable Precaution. No system can guarantee absolute security, just as the finest lock can not guarantee physical security. However, we take every reasonable precaution to assure that your data is secure.

4. Your Choice: Opt-in or Opt-out.

It is your choice whether to receive emails, updates, or special offers from us. You may subscribe or opt-in to our Ardent Light Web Site mailing list by clicking the Subscribe Now button below. You may unsubscribe or opt-out at any time by clicking the Unsubscribe link in any of the emails you received from us.

5. Children

We do not sell products or services to children. If you are under 18, you may use this site only with involvement of a parent or guardian.

6. Other Web Sites

There may be links to other web sites on this site. If you click those links to another site, your privacy depends on the policy of that site. We strongly urge you to check their privacy policy. Not all sites guarantee that they will not share your personally identifiable information with others.
