The Information We Collect
In the course of operating the Site and/or providing our Services, we may collect (and/or receive) the following types of information. You authorize us to collect and/or receive such information.
1. Personal Information
When you sign up to become a Registered User, you will be required to provide us with personal information about yourself, such as your name, e-mail address, location, and phone number.

2. Transaction Information.
When Registered Users wish to make a Product purchase, they must provide certain information about the transactions they are seeking to execute, such as product specifications and shipping address. Such information is collectively called the “Transaction Information.” You acknowledge and agree that your Transaction Information is shared with applicable Suppliers so that they can process and ship your order. Although we contractually obligate Suppliers to use your Transaction Information solely for the purposes of processing and shipping your order, we cannot control, and we are not responsible for, any Supplier’s use or misuse of your Transaction Information.

c. From Cookies
. Information that we collect using “cookie” technology. Cookies are small packets of data that a website stores on your computer’s or mobile device’s hard drive so that your computer will “remember” information about your visit. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to help us collect Other Information and to enhance your experience using the Site or the Services. If you do not want us to place a cookie on your hard drive, you may be able to turn that feature off on your computer or mobile device. Please consult your Internet browser’s documentation for information on how to do this and how to delete persistent cookies. However, if you decide not to accept cookies from us, the Site or the Services may not function properly.
