We will never disclose your credit card information, telephone number, address, or email address with any third party without your express consent. We may enter into marketing relationships with marketing companies and other companies that provide products and services that we believe may interest customers of A2X. We may share your Personal Information with these marketing partners in order to assist them in sending you information that we believe may interest you. We may share non-identifiable demographic information with these companies. We may also provide Personal Information to any affiliate businesses of ours.
Some of our operations, such as our electronic commerce system and email marketing system, may be managed by Service Providers who are unaffiliated companies. These companies may share Personal Information with their affiliates and with service providers whom they engage to perform services related to our Web Site or the operation of our business. Examples of these services include payment processing and authorization, fraud protection and credit risk reduction, product customization, order fulfillment and shipping, marketing and promotional material distribution, Web Site evaluation, data analysis and, where applicable, data cleansing. These companies may have access to your Personal Information on a confidential basis only to the extent necessary to perform their functions. In no event will we authorize these companies to use your Personal Information for any reason other than to provide you with those specific services. If your purchases are being shipped to you, your shipping information will be shared with our delivery service providers (U.S. Postal Service, UPS, or other delivery companies we or you select). Our delivery service providers are asked not to use your Personal Information for any purpose other than delivering the product.

In general, you may visit our Web Site without providing us with any Personal Information. The kinds of information we collect from you will vary, depending on how you use our Web Site.
In addition to the information you choose to submit, our systems are set up to gather certain anonymous data to help us better understand how our Web Site is being used and how we can improve it. We collect the IP (Internet protocol) addresses of all visitors to our Web Site and other related information such as page requests, browser type, operating system and average time spent on our Web Site.
A2X and its advertisers may use single-pixel gif images, sometimes referred to as web bugs or web beacons, to count Web page accesses and gather some general statistical information. A2X does not gather personal information through the use of these images. Our advertisers may use single-pixel gifs that can track personal information from cookies that may have been previously placed on a user's computer by an advertiser.
We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect against unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure of your Personal Information in our custody and control. We also are committed to employing reasonable technology in order to protect the security of our Web Site. However, even with the best technology, no Web Site is 100% secure. We will take reasonable measures which we believe are appropriate to protect your Personal Information from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction, and where possible, will ask that any third parties to whom we may transfer such information to take comparable steps to protect that security.
When you place orders on our Web Site, all of your order information, including your card number and delivery address, is transmitted through the Internet using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL technology causes your browser to encrypt your order information before transmitting it to our secure server. SSL technology, an industry standard, is designed to prevent someone other than operators of our Web Site from capturing and viewing your Personal Information. Since any order information you provide to us on our Web Site will be transmitted using a secure connection, if your Web browser cannot support this level of security, you will not be able to order products through our Web Site. The most recent versions of Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer can support a secure connection and can be downloaded for free from the Mozilla and Microsoft Web Sites respectively.
