Surveys -- Surveys on our site ask visitors for contact information (like their e-mail address). We use contact data from our surveys to send users confirmation of having successfully submitted the survey, information about our company and promotional material on behalf of Market Hardware and our partners. The customer's contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.

We use contact data from our contests to send users confirmation of having successfully entered the contest, to notify the winners of contests, information about our company and promotional material on behalf of Market Hardware and our partners. The customer's contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.

Co-branded account Applications and Offers -- In order to receive special offers from certain of our partners that are identified by name ("Co-Branded Partners"), you may be asked to provide additional personally identifiable information. Information submitted in conjunction with an offer made by a Co-Branded Partner may be shared with the Co-Branded Partner, in which case the Co-Branded Partners' use of such information will be governed by the privacy policy of that particular Co-Branded Partner. Check the applicable Co-Branded Partner's site for specifics.

Prospect Information -- Market Hardware also collects prospect information from our users. Our users may provide another person's information, such as their friend's e-mail address, in order to send them content or offerings from our site. A prospect's information is only used for the purpose for which it was submitted and for providing marketing materials on behalf of Market Hardware and our partners. Prospects may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below. 

IP Address - Market Hardware may track your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our services. Your IP address is used to help identify you and your shopping cart and to gather demographic information. 

Cookies – Market Hardware uses "cookies" (a small data file that's stored on your hard drive) to save your password so you don't have to re-enter it each time you visit. The cookie we give you stores your user ID and tells us whether you've logged in or not. We need to know who you are so we can do things like show you your personal e-mail instead of showing you somebody else's. If you have your browser set to not accept cookies, then you won't be able to log into parts of the site or access most of our products. We may also use cookies to track the performance of promotions and offerings on our websites.

At times, some of the advertisers on our site set cookies when you select their advertising banner or other forms of advertising. While we use cookies in other parts of our services (as noted above), any information collected by cookies received with banner ads are collected by those advertisers (or their third-party ad serving company or other agents). The advertiser's (and/or its third-party ad serving company's or other agent's) privacy policy will govern the use of this information, and Market Hardware is not responsible for the privacy practices of such third parties. 

'Powered By' Content - In certain circumstances we may provide content that is 'powered by', 'provided by' and co-branded with other sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites. As a general rule you should always look for and review a site's privacy policy before giving out any personal information. 

2. How We Use and Disclose Your Information


We use your information to deliver personalized services, content, discounts and advertisements to enhance your experience with us. For example, we may send you an e-mail with a special offer or discount from one of our affiliates, divisions or participating sponsors on 'Holiday Cards' because you selected "word of mouth marketing" as an area of interest under your personal profile when you registered to use Market Hardware .

We do not sell your personally identifiable information to third parties or mass marketers without your consent. Unless you consent to the disclosure of your personally identifiable information, only we and our affiliates, our technical consultants, third party auditors and other third parties who make our site available, enhance its functionality, or provide associated services and/or who deal with you in delivering content, samples, products, and gifts and prizes, have access to this information.

On occasion, we may ask for your consent to share particular data with a third party. In addition, we reserve the right, without disclosing your personally identifiable information to third parties, to use the information you provide to offer you additional Market Hardware products or third party products and services that we think will be of interest to you. If you respond to such an offer and contact a third party, that third party's privacy policy will apply to any information you provide and/or that is collected by such third party. Similarly, as noted above, information submitted in conjunction with an offer made by a Co-Branded Partner may be shared with the Co-Branded Partner, in which case the Co-Branded Partners' use of such information will be governed by the privacy policy of that particular Co-Branded Partner.

We may publicly disclose aggregated information about our users, such as the total number of our users and their overall demographics.

You have the option to subscribe to receive various e-mail and/or mobile phone updates when you register on our websites, which allow us to provide you with additional discounts, special offers, site upgrades, new features, events, promotions, and much more. You have the option to e-mail us to opt out of receiving the e-mails. You also have the option to opt out of receiving mobile phone communications by emailing Member Services or changing the preferences on your account.

On occasion, Market Hardware may use content you post in chat rooms and discussions or any other public section of the site for promotional purposes, in e-mail newsletters, in promotional collateral, or elsewhere, both on its own and aggregated with any other information you so provide, and by using any Market Hardware website, you agree that we may do so without providing you with any consideration. (You may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.)

We participate in programs where certain companies ("Participating Companies") direct users to our site or provide certain incentives or benefits to our users. If you are directed to a service in our site by such a program (a "Participating Company Program") and you provide or we collect personally identifiable information or non-personally identifiable information in connection with the Participating Company Program, we may share this information with other parties that are participants in the Participating Company Program or that administer the Participating Company Program. For example, if you come to Market Hardware as a referral from an online affiliate program, we may have a contractual obligation to make payments to and send certain corresponding information to the affiliate site that linked you to us and to a separate entity, if any, that administers the affiliate program. 

Information obtained from you may be intermingled with and used by us in conjunction with information obtained through sources other than that service, including both offline and online sources. 

We may disclose your personal information in response to a subpoena or similar investigative demand, a court order, or a request for cooperation from a law enforcement or other government agency; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. We may also disclose your personal information when we believe disclosure is appropriate in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent, report or take other action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing; to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of our company, our users, our employees, or others; to comply with applicable law or cooperate with law enforcement; or to enforce our website terms and conditions or other agreements or policies.

Please note that we do reserve the right to transfer your personally identifiable information and other information to our successors in the event of a merger, consolidation, asset sale, or other business combination.
