We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Website and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Statement applies solely to information collected by this Website.


This Website takes every precaution to protect your personally identifiable information. Whenever you submit personally identifiable information (such as contact information or credit card info) via online forms, registration, or online purchase, upon submission that information is encrypted via the highest level of SSL (Secured Sockets Layer) available.

Non-secured Communications

Some posts to discussion forums, discussion boards, and comments to blogs, are viewable by other users. When these areas are not in a password protected area, they may be viewable by the general public. Please be aware of this when posting personal information in these areas.

California Residents

Section 22575 of the California Business & Professions Code requires website and online service operators to disclose whether they honor web browser “Do Not Track" settings. We do not authorize third parties to track, collect, or to use your Information over time and across third party websites for online behavioral advertising placement purposes. Because there is not yet an industry standard as to how to respond to “web browser do not track signals," and because we do not authorize third parties to track, collect, or to use your personal information over time and across third party websites for online behavioral advertising placement purposes, we currently do not take action in response to such browser signals. For more information about Do Not Track, please visit

We need to disclose to you that we would obtain your consent before sharing your personally identifiable information for marketing purposes. Effective January 1, 2005, under California Civil Code Section 1798.83, if an individual who is a California resident has provided Personal Information to a business in connection with a business relationship that is primarily for personal, family, or household purposes, and if that business has within the immediately preceding calendar year disclosed such an individual's Personal Information to a third-party and knows or should have known that such third-party used the information for its own direct marketing purposes, then that business is obligated to disclose in writing to such individual upon request, what Personal Information was shared and with whom it was shared. Any request for a disclosure required under this California law should be sent to us via email at or by mail at 8825 SW Barnes Road, Portland, Oregon 97225.

Please note that under this law, we are not required to respond to a customer's request more than once in a calendar year, nor are we required to respond to any request that is not sent to the email or mailing address designated above.
