MP may use Personally Identifying Information for internal purposes (for example, to process transactions, or to send you updates about new content on our site). MP may share your contact information with its affiliated entities to enable them to provide you with special benefits, promotions, or offers from either MP or its affiliates. Personally Identifying Information collected by MP may also be used by us for editorial and feedback purposes, for marketing and promotional purposes, for a statistical analysis of users’ behavior, for website or product development, for content improvement, to inform affiliated entities or advertisers on our site about how many visitors have seen or clicked on their material or advertisements, and to customize content and layout of the www.MachinesPicks.com website.
Names, postal and e-mail addresses, and phone numbers collected may be added to MP’s databases and used for future calls and mailings regarding site updates and new features. There may be occasions when MP is legally required to provide access to our database in order to cooperate with law enforcement investigations or other legal proceedings. In those instances, the information is provided only for that purpose. In response to such a governmental request, MP and/or its affiliated entities may or may not, in the exercise of our legal, business and civic judgment, give access to the information you provide to the applicable government agencies.
In rare circumstances, MP may disclose user information in the good-faith belief that disclosure is otherwise necessary or advisable, including without limitation to protect the rights or properties of MP (or you), or when we have reason to believe that disclosing the information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing interference with our (or your) rights or properties, whether intentionally or otherwise, or when anyone else (including you) could be harmed by such activities. In addition, if MP and/or substantially all of its assets are acquired, our user information will most likely be transferred to the acquiring party in connection with the acquisition.
MP may also profile your activity on our website in order accurately to provide you with information, products and services that correspond to your interests. We may also compile data in aggregate form so that we may better understand those who are visiting or using our site. For example, we may produce reports on the most popular search terms on our site by collecting general search term data based on individual searches. Aggregate data is anonymous and does not contain any personal information that identifies you or any other user.

You may review the contents of any of your Personally Identifying Information collected at our website by contacting us at Info@themachinespicks.com. MP will use reasonable efforts to remove your Personally Identifying Information from our website at any time upon your written request to Info@themachinespicks.com. Such removal of Personally Identifying Information may not ensure 100% removal of such Personally Identifying Information from our business records. For example, such Personally Identifying Information may remain in MP’s archival or backup copies of the www.MachinesPicks.com site.
We will retain your personal information in our databases in accordance with our document management, retention and destruction policy, and applicable laws. This period may extend beyond the end of your relationship with MP, but it will be only as long as it is necessary for us to have sufficient information to respond to any issues that may arise later. For example, we may need or be required to retain information to allow you to obtain future credit. We may also need to retain certain information to prevent fraudulent activity; to protect ourselves (or you) against liability; permit us to pursue available remedies or limit any damages that we (or you) may sustain; or if we believe in good faith that a law, regulation, rule or guideline requires it.
MP may occasionally monitor and review information (including Personally Identifying Information) transmitted or received through our website, or through telephone or email communications, for quality assurance and other purposes. For example, we must reserve the right to censor, edit, remove, or prohibit the transmission or receipt of any data that MP deems inappropriate, or which is in violation of any of the terms and conditions applicable to your use of our website. During this monitoring, the information may be examined, recorded, and/or copied.
