We recognize that your privacy is important. This Policy discloses Martin Bros. Distributing Company Inc.’s privacy practices for the Company’s various websites (collectively “Site”), as well as related products or services we may offer (“Services”). The Policy also covers how personal information and other information we receive or collect about you is treated.
What information do we collect?
In order to provide you with better service, we may collect two types of information about our Site users: Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) and Aggregate Information (“AI”).
Personally Identifiable Information: PII refers to information that specifically identifies you. We may request and collect information from you when you engage in certain activities on our Site, including registering on our Site, placing an order, subscribing to our newsletter, responding to a survey or filling out a form.
You may be asked to enter PII such as your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, company name, or other similar information. When ordering products or services on the Site, you may be asked to provide payment information, including a credit card number. We do not collect PII unless you voluntarily provide it, although certain PII may be required in order to use certain products or services available on the Site.
Aggregate Information: AI refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. We may gather certain information about you based upon where you visit on our Site and what other sites may have directed you to us. That information is collected in a variety of ways and may be compiled and analyzed on a personal and aggregated basis. AI includes the URL or link which points you to the site you just came from, which Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) you visit after visiting our site, what internet browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address.
We may collect, or third party partners on our behalf may collect, and use certain AI. We may use your IP address to diagnose problems with our Site, servers, software, to administer our Site, or to gather demographic information. We may also receive from third party partners aggregate reports.
What do we use your information for?
Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:
- To personalize your experience (your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs)
- To improve our website (we continually strive to improve our website offerings based on the information and feedback we receive from you)
- To improve customer service (your information helps us to more effectively respond to your customer service requests and support needs)
- To process transactions
Your information, whether public or private, will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any other company for any reason whatsoever, without your consent, other than for the express purpose of delivering the purchased product or service requested.
- To administer a contest, promotion, survey or other site feature
- To send periodic emails
The email address you provide for order processing may be used to send you information and updates pertaining to your order, occasional company news, updates, related product or service information, or similar content. If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we include detailed unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.
How do we protect your information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or enter, submit, or access your personal information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your PII, by using this Site you acknowledge that there are inherent security and privacy limitations to the Internet which are beyond our control and that the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this Site cannot be guaranteed.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your PII. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety.
