Online Ordering Information

The TLJI online store offers TLJI products available for purchase online. Customers must be over age 18 with a valid credit card. When you place an order for product online from the TLJI online store or request a catalog online, we collect information associated with the transaction. This information includes your name, mailing address, products ordered, other demographic information, and credit card information. We ask for this information so that we may fulfill the order or catalog request. We and our agents and affiliates use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect credit card data during transmission, and adopt careful internal procedures to safeguard this information in our systems.

You have the option of registering certain information for future orders while completing your online order. For those who choose to register, we will capture your login name, password, name and mailing address, alternate ship-to addresses, and credit card information. When a registered person returns to the site to place subsequent orders, they can identify themselves with login name and password.

When you place an online order, we will send a confirming e-mail message. In the future, we may also send an occasional e-mail featuring a special promotion or product that may be of interest to our customers. If you do receive an e-mail from us that you would rather not receive, simply follow the "opt-out" instructions included in the e-mail.

When you request a catalog or place an order online, we add your name and address to our print catalog mailing list.

If you have recently moved, or are planning a move in the near future, you should let us know of the change of address and we'll be sure to update our records. You can also enter this information online.

Other Information We Could Collect Online

With the permission of a visitor who is 18 years of age or over, such personally identifiable information submitted in connection with a registration or other activity on our websites may be used for marketing and promotional purposes. TLJI may also grant access to our database as necessary in connection with services provided to , such as technical or fulfillment services (including those provided by third parties), but such disclosures are subject to non-disclosure commitments by third parties.

In that case, we might try to identify the wrongdoer, contact them or bring legal action against them. We may also disclose personal information if we believe that the disclosure is required by law, or in response to a legal request.

We may use "cookie" technology to track the total number of visitors to each of our sites in an aggregate form. We do not automatically extract personally identifiable information in this process. "Cookie" technology will only be used to track non-personal information such as type of browser, operating system, and domain names to customize the website for each visitor and to improve the visitor's online experience. We could also use other technology, called clear GIFs, to provide us with other important anonymous information, such as when an Email has been opened. These tools help us understand features that interest our customers.

In some instances, when contact information has been provided by the visitor, and the visitor is 18 or older and has indicated that he/she would like to receive communications from us, we will send notices to visitors, usually in the form of an e-mail. These notices, sent periodically, will announce website upgrades, new product information, promotions and other similar updates that may be of interest to the visitor. Our mailers and other notices tell the visitor how to "opt-out" so that he or she can stop the notices at any time.

TLJI also collects personally identifiable data, such as names, addresses, e-mail addresses, and the like, when voluntarily submitted by a visitor in one of our guestbooks, registries, contest, survey sections, or other areas of our website(s). We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 18 without prior verifiable parental consent.

You always have the right to request that contact information regarding you or your child be deleted from our database. To request deletion of your contact information in our database, please Email us at: info@tlji.com for more information. Upon proper identification, parents may review the personal information we have collected about their child, request deletion, or refuse to allow further collection or use by writing to us at the address above.
