COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
We only collect personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number and credit card information (“PII”) if you voluntarily provide it to us through the Site.
USE OF INFORMATION
We use the information we gather from the Site to operate and improve the Site, build a positive user experience and deliver services or products you request. We may use your PII to respond to your direct requests for information, process orders, or otherwise contact you about an inquiry you have made on the Site or a product or service we think might interest you. If you wish to opt out of receiving certain types of communications from us, you may do so by unsubscribing as explained in emails you may receive from us, or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
We will not provide or sell your PII to any other companies for commercial purposes; provided, however, that we may share your PII with third parties with whom we have contracted to provide services on our behalf, such as parties who provide us with marketing assistance and process credit card payments. In such instances, your PII will be used only for purposes of providing those services on our behalf.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may disclose your PII in response to legal process—for example, in response to a court order, subpoena or request from a law enforcement agency. We may also disclose PII if, in our sole discretion, such disclosure is required to protect the interests and safety of MLF and other Site users.
In the case of a sale or other transfer of some or all of our operations, we may transfer your PII to the buyer or transferee as part of the transaction.
SECURITY OF INFORMATION
We use standard technological measures to protect your PII, including encryption of sensitive information transmitted through the Site. However, we cannot guarantee the security of this information. We have no control over the Internet and third party networks, and there is no guarantee of absolute security of information that is transmitted or accessible via the Internet. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of the Site at any time. We cannot and do not warrant that any transmission will not be monitored or read by third parties.
THIRD PARTY WEBSITES
