Throughout this policy, when Dina is referred to as “she” or “her,” etc., that also includes any employees acting within the scope of their employment for her websites.

Capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Policy shall have the meaning set forth in our Terms of Service.

2. Order Information.

When you place an Order, you must provide her with certain information about the products and services you're seeking to purchase. Such information is collectively called the “Order Information.”
