The types of information we collect from or about Site visitors is usually grouped into two categories: "personal," which is information that can uniquely identify a specific individual, and "aggregate," which is general demographic information or information about online activities that does not uniquely identify any individual person. Personal information may include your name, email address, mailing address, credit card information and phone number. Personal information also includes "financial" information, such as credit card numbers and other similar payment information.
We may collect certain aggregate information such as your demographic information, shopping habits and preferences, age, gender, geographic location, language, time zone, income and education (some of the information we ask for may be optional). Cypress & 5th may use or disclose aggregate information for any purpose.
We collect information from you in several different ways on this Site. One reason for collecting personal information from you is to provide an efficient, meaningful, and customized experience. For example, we can use your personal information to:
help make this Site easier for you to use by not having to enter information more than once;
help you quickly find information, products, and services;
help us create content on this Site that is most relevant to you;
alert you to new information, products, and services that we offer.

During registration, you will be prompted to provide to us certain personal information, including but not limited to your name, shipping and billing address(es), phone number, email address, and credit card number. In addition, we may also ask you for your country of residence, so we can comply with applicable laws and regulations, and we may also ask you for your gender and birth date.
Several features and locations of the Site permit you to enter your email address for a variety of purposes, including but not limited to: regis tering for promotions, requesting us to notify you regarding particular offers or products, or to sign up for e-mail newsletters and special offers, including contests, which we may run from time to time. Your participation in a contest or promotion is completely voluntary, so you have a choice whether to participate and disclose information to us for purposes of entering a contest or promotion. We use personal information to notify contest winners and to award prizes. We may post on our Site the names and cities of contest winners.

Web beacons assist in delivering cookies and help us determine whether a web page on this Site has been viewed and, if so, how many times.For example, any electronic image on this Site, such as an ad banner, can function as a web beacon.
We may use third-party advertising companies to help us tailor site content to visitors or to serve ads on our behalf. These companies may employ cookies and web beacons to measure advertising effectiveness (such as which web pages are visited or what products are purchased and in what amount).

We partner with third parties (such as the U.S. Postal Service, United Parcel Service, and Federal Express) to ship products and ensure delivery to you, and to obtain feedback, improve the quality of our service, and measure and improve the quality of the service of the third party.
