Shipping and Handling fees apply to all orders.

International Orders:

For international orders, including Canada, we ship via USPS international mail. The shipment is forwarded to the various postal systems throughout the world. Once the shipment leaves the U.S., we are unable to track the package. It is not uncommon for the process to take more than a month and, in extreme cases, as much as 90 days. If you choose a private carrier to deliver your order, the carrier will collect a customs brokerage fee from you upon delivery of the order. Keep in mind that your order delivery time can take longer than two weeks. 

Please note:

Any item that is not in stock will be back-ordered and shipped to you as soon as it is in inventory.


Privacy & Security

How do we protect your information?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order. We use a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via secure socket layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted, accessible only by those authorized with special permission rights to our systems who are required to keep the information confidential. After a transaction, your private information (e.g., credit card data) is not stored on our servers.

Do we use cookies?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site transfers to your computer hard drive through your Web browser (but only if you allow it) that enable the site to recognize your browser and remember certain information. We use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart and understand and save your preferences for future visits. If you prefer, you can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies via your browser settings. Like most websites, some of our services may not function properly if you turn off cookies. However, you can still place orders over the telephone or by contacting Customer Service.

Third-party links

We may occasionally, at our discretion, include or offer third-party information, products, or services on our website with a link to another website we do not operate. These third-party sites have separate privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.
