cyberMIND knows that you care how information about
you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust
that we will do so carefully and sensibly. This notice
you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy
What Personal Information About Customers Does cyberMIND
The information we learn from customers helps us personalize
and continually improve your shopping experience at
cyberMIND. Here are the types of information we gather.
Information You Give Us
We receive and store any information you enter on our
Web site 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 many of our features.
We use the information that you provide for such purposes
as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping
for you, improving our stores, and communicating with
We receive and store certain types of information whenever
you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites,
we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types
of information when your Web browser accesses cyberMIND.
A number of companies offer utilities designed to help
you visit Web sites anonymously. Although we will not
be able to provide you with a personalized experience
at cyberMIND if we cannot recognize you, we want you
to be aware that these tools exist.
To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting,
we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail
from cyberMIND if your computer supports such capabilities.
Information from Other 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 sometimes
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
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 your shopping preferences
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 cyberMIND's coolest features,
and we recommend that you leave them turned on.
Does cyberMIND Share the Information It Receives?
No. Information about our customers is an important
part of our business, and we are not in the business
of selling it to others.
We employ other companies and individuals to perform
functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling
orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and
e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer
lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance,
processing credit card payments, and providing customer
service. They have access to personal information needed
to perform their functions, but may not use it for other
Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of cyberMIND
customers on behalf of other businesses. When we do
this, we do not give that business your name and address.
As we continue to develop our business, we might sell
or buy stores or assets. In such transactions, customer
information generally is one of the transferred business
assets. Also, in the unlikely event that cyberMIND,
or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer
information will of course be one of the transferred
Protection of cyberMIND and Others
We release account and other personal information when
we believe release is appropriate to comply with law;
enforce or apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements;
or protect the rights, property, or safety of cyberMIND,
our users, or others. This includes exchanging information
with other companies and organizations for fraud protection
and credit risk reduction.
With Your Consent
Other than as set out above, you will receive notice
when information about you might go to third parties,
and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share
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.

have instructed us not to, but you should check our
Web site frequently to see recent changes.
