Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future buying for you, improving our website and product offerings, and communicating with you.
Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many websites, we may use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses Karen Pearse Global Direct (www.kpgd.com). A number of companies offer utilities designed to help you visit websites anonymously. Although we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience at Karen Pearse Global Direct if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist.
Information from Outside Sources: For reasons such as improving personalization of our service (for example, providing better product recommendations or special offers that we think will interest you), we might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. We also may receive 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.

How Secure Is Information About Our Customers?
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. We reveal only the last five digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing. 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.
