Why do I need to provide my email address when I check out?

The email address you provide during checkout is only used to send you an email confirmation with your order details. In some cases, we will email a customer if there is a problem with their order (e.g., problem with credit card, item suddenly becomes back-ordered, etc.). Your email address may also be used to provide you with annual care and maintenance tips, product updates, new releases, and the like.
