Becoming a Registered User. In order to use our Website for purchasing our Products, you must first complete certain steps to become a registered user. During these steps, you may be required to provide us with personal information. This information is used to help us understand who uses our Website, to improve our Website, to monitor and improve our online ordering process, and to contact users with regards to their use of our Website and the purchase of our Products.
