I would just send them an e-mail through their contact page. I've spoken with an employee via facebook but haven't done the service myself. My understanding is that you just send them pictures of your head and ears, they digitally model your HRTF using those pictures, and then you receive a SOFA file that you can load into a binaural decoder that supports custom HRTFs. I think the service is around $4-500. If you have access to some type of volumetric scanner, they may be able to use that data for an even more accurate model.
