Information collected is used solely for performing normal business operations such as keeping you informed of SCGS benefits and events via email and postal mail, shipping products, and related accounting tasks (such as billing and collecting funds).
Use of Your Personal Information
SCGS and its service partners (such as our secure credit card processor and email marketing software providers) collect and use your personal information to process orders and deliver the products requested. SCGS may also use personal information to inform you of products or services available.

SCGS does not sell, trade, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties.
SCGS does not collect, use, or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations.
We may engage other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of out services. We will provide those companies only the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
If you contact us (by email or letter), we may keep a record of that correspondence. Your email address may be recorded when you send email to us. We shall use it only to correspond with you. We do not share your contact information with anyone who does not need to know your relationship with SCGS.
