However, when at all possible, an option to remain anonymous will be provided to those who wish to preserve their right to anonymity. 

For reasons of security, credit card information is not stored permanently on the Web server. We will retain your order information for our records, but this information is never shared with unaffiliated third parties without prior consent.
