We take your privacy very seriously. Please review the following list to familiarize yourself with our policies and practices. You are encouraged to review this policy regularly, as it may be changed without notification.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

We collect personally identifiable contact information including names, postal addresses, email addresses, phone number, and country when voluntarily submitted by our visitors. The information you provide is only used to fulfill your specific request, unless you give us permission to use it in another manner, for example, to add you to our marketing mail and email lists.

For clients, we use this information to process invoices, delivery, and installation in addition to marketing when the client has opted into the marketing lists.

Commitment to Data Security

Your personally identifiable information is kept secure. Only authorized employees, agents and contractors (who have agreed to keep information secure and confidential) have access to this information. Our data encryption ensures your information is protected before it is sent to the Internet. Our encryption process makes doing business over the Internet as secure as purchasing by telephone. Our technology uses 128-bit encryption Secure Sockets (SSL) software for secure online transactions. You can identify a secure page by noticing the lock or key icon in the bottom right corner of your browser window. In addition, a secure web site address will display as “https” rather than just “http.”

We store and process all personal data at our facility located at 2124 44th Ave, Long Island City, Queens 11101. Our servers are located on-site and all data is backed up daily.

Distribution of Information

We do not sell or share personal data with third parties.

However, we may share information with governmental agencies or other companies assisting us in fraud prevention or investigation. We may do so when: (1) permitted or required by law; or (2) trying to protect against or prevent actual or potential fraud or unauthorized transactions; or (3) investigating fraud which has already taken place. The information is not provided to these companies for marketing purposes.
