When you purchase from us, we’ll ask you to provide information including your name, billing address, shipping address, email address, username, password, credit card/payment details, and optional account information like your phone number. We’ll use this information for purposes, such as, to:

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
