What Personal Information About Customers Does USA Tealight Gather?
The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your shopping experience at USA Tealight. Here are the types of information we gather. What About Cookies?
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide features such as Express Check-Out purchasing, Just for You, personalized USA Tealight Concierge Services, and storage of items in your Shopping Cart between visits.
The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of some of USA Tealight's coolest features, and we recommend that you leave them turned on.

Does USA Tealight Share the Information It Receives?
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below and with subsidiaries USA Tealight controls that either are subject to this Privacy Policy or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Policy. How Secure Is Information About Me?
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. Simply click the "log out" link at the top of the web page to sign off.

Which Information Can I Access?
USA Tealight gives you access to a broad range of information about your account and your interactions with USA Tealight for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information. You may login to your account to see your options; these options will of course change as our Web site evolves.

What Choices Do I Have?
As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase or to take advantage of certain USA Tealight features.
If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your Customer E-mail Preferences. (If you do not want to receive Conditions of Use and other legal notices from us, such as this Privacy Policy, those notices will still govern your use of USA Tealight, and it is your responsibility to review them for changes.)
The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, you will not be able to use certain important features if you do not use cookies.

Our business changes constantly, and our Privacy Policy and the Conditions of Use will change also. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, unless you have instructed us not to, but you should check our Web site frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Policy applies to all information that we have about you and your account. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.
