MMI collects two types of information from users of this website and the services offered on this website (collectively, the "Site"): personal information described below, and non-personal information such as information about traffic patterns on MMI (for example, how many users log on to MMI on a daily basis).Personal Information
To interact on certain portions of the Site, such as the Retail sections (where users can order appliances through the Site from our manufacturing/distributing partners), we require you to register and select a screen name. To register, you will be required to submit some personal data, including, for example, your name, telephone number, postal address and email address. When you voluntarily respond to our email messages, newsletters or other promotional features, we may ask you for other personal information, such as your consumer and product preferences.
In addition, when you order a product or service through the Retail sections of the Site, we will ask you for your name, address and email address and/or other personal information or credit card information in order to process your request.How We Use Your Personal Information
MMI uses the information collected, including personally identifiable information, for a variety of purposes. For example, we use your information to better understand your needs and provide you with better products and services. We may use your information to communicate back to you, to confirm your orders, to update you on products, services and benefits, to personalize the Site for you, to contact you for market research or to provide you with marketing information, newsletters, or other information we think would be of particular interest. You may opt out of receiving such promotional materials by contacting us by clicking here.
We may also share your personal information with our affiliates, appliance product manufacturer and distributor partners, 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 processing your orders and/or delivering content, samples, products, services, gifts and promotional items. Please note that we reserve the right to transfer your personally identifiable information and other information to our successors in business and purchasers of Site assets.
In addition, MMI may share your personal information with certain third parties with whom we do business (including, for example, our appliance manufacturer and distributor partners), so that such third parties can use the information for market research or other purposes, or contact you regarding products, services, offers, or other information we think you will find valuable.
Information obtained through the Site may be intermingled with and used in conjunction with information obtained through sources other than the Site, including both offline and online sources.On-line Purchases
Our Site enables registered users to request information and order products and services from the Retail sections of the Site. We collect contact information (such as your name, mailing and/or e-mail address), and when appropriate, financial information (such as your credit card number and its expiration date) to process your requests or purchases. Contact information from an order form may be used to fulfill orders, to get in touch with you when necessary regarding your order and for other purposes, such as to provide information about our company to you. Credit card information that is collected is used to process your request for products and services, and will not be shared with third parties who are not involved with the transaction. When credit card information is transmitted, we use SSL (secure socket layer) 128 bit encryption.Non-Personal Data
In some cases, we may collect non-personal information. Examples of this type of information include the type of internet browser you are using, the type of computer operating system application software, and peripherals you are using and the domain name of the web site from which you linked to our Site. We use your information on an aggregated basis to do such things as operate our Site, enhance our Site and sell and deliver advertising. We may share non-personal information with third parties for advertising, promotional and other purposes.Cookies
