This refers to information that lets us know specifically about you i.e. profile information.
When you place an order for merchandise, we collect Personally Identifiable Information (such as name, contact and billing information, credit card,and other transactional information). We use this information to deliver your order, process payment, and to communicate the status of your order.

Credit card information collected for merchandise orders is used only to process payment for the transaction and, generally, is temporarily stored on our site.
C. SURVEYS AND PROMOTIONS
Occasionally, you may voluntarily provide Personally Identifiable Information to complete surveys and questionnaires or to participate in user polls. We use this information to improve our products and services and to ensure that we’re providing accurate disclosures. We may also use your Personally Identifiable Information to provide you newsletters and other marketing information that coincide with your preferences. You may customize your marketing preferences, or let us know if you do not wish to receive any promotional materials, by adjusting your Email options on the Site.
