For purposes of this policy and as used below, “Personal Information” means any information that can be used to personally identify you or contact you online or offline. For example, this information may include your name, mailing address, e-mail address, or phone number (“personally identifiable information”), as well as other non-personally identifiable information or demographic information such as your age, gender, habits, or preferences when such information is tied to your personally identifiable information. In all such cases, we will collect Personal Information from you only if you submit such information to us knowingly and voluntarily.
We do not require you provide any personal information to simply browse our websites. We may request Personal Information from you in connection with your use of the resources and services we make available on our site, as well as your voluntary participation in our contests and promotions.
Use of Personal Information
We may use Personal Information to, among other things, communicate directly with visitors and users, in order to respond to inquiries, to inform users and visitors when they have won a contest, to fulfill a request for an online newsletter or other online subscription service or account, to enforce the legal terms that govern your use of our websites, or to offer additional information about other products, programs, services, promotions, or offers that may be of interest. We sometimes use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our sites, to analyze usage of our sites, to deliver more relevant marketing messages and advertisements, and to enable us to personalize your Internet experience.
If you choose to participate in a contest, sweepstakes, or promotion, we may use your name and likeness for purposes of advertising and trade without further compensation, unless prohibited by law. In addition, we may use your Personal Information from the entry form for internal marketing analyses and to provide you with information from time to time about other products, programs, services, promotions, or offers that may be of interest to you.
To order catalogs, in addition to the Personal Information noted above, we will need to collect “means of payment” information from you to process and fulfill your order. Such information will be submitted to us over the Internet in an encrypted manner. Information regarding payment is not released to third parties.

In order to utilize some of the resources and services on our website, participate in contest and promotions, and make online catalog purchases, you will need to provide some basic Personal Information, as noted above. By providing such Personal Information, you are deemed to consent to our use of this information, to receiving future communications from us, and to us providing such information to our authorized dealers. If you do not find this to be a benefit, you have the option of changing your mind and opting-out of our consumer relationship programs. We will make all reasonable efforts to do so promptly upon your request. If you opt-out of receiving further promotional materials or notices, the only communications you will receive from us will be about transactions that you initiate. You should be aware that it is not always possible to completely remove information in our databases and servers, or those of third-party authorized dealers who have been provided that information in accordance with this policy.
You agree that all matters relating to your access to or use of the Site, including all disputes, will be governed by the laws of the United States and by the laws of the State of North Carolina without regard to its conflicts of laws provisions.

If any of these terms and conditions are found unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be considered severable from the remaining terms and conditions, and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. This is the entire agreement between you and us relating to the subject matter it contains.
