EquipmentMLS® respects and is committed to protecting your privacy. That is why we have adopted this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy lets you know how your personal information is processed and used. We promise that we will take steps to use your personal information only in ways that are compatible with this Privacy Policy. The following policies are only in effect for the Web pages, newsletters, discussion lists and opt-in announcement lists operated by EquipmentMLS®.

What information are you collecting and how are you collecting it?

Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers, that serve as that computer's "Internet Protocol" IP address. When a visitor requests a page from any Web site, our Web servers automatically recognize that visitor's domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We may use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse, or to cooperate with law enforcement.

Will you disclose the information you collect to outside third parties?

When you request information on dealer equipment, we will pass that request on to our participating dealers. We will not pass along information when you do not complete a specific request for information. Our site does not automatically record e-mail addresses of the visitors.

What are cookies?

From time to time, we may send a "cookie" to your computer. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your Internet browser from a Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. A cookie can't read data off of your computer hard disk or read cookie files created by other Web sites. Cookies do not damage your system. We use cookies to identify you to us so you do not have to reenter information when you revisit. No confidental sensitive or confidential information is stored to cookies.

You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings of your Internet browser. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies, or allow your browser to show you when a cookie is being sent. If you choose not to accept these cookies, your experience at our Site and other Web sites may be diminished and some features may not work as intended.

What information do you collect when I register for something?

Some services may require registration. We may use your registration contact information to send notification of your requests to our participating dealers. We will not put you on regular 'distribution lists' unless you request. You will be able to remove your name from any distribution lists.

When you request more information about equipment listed on our site, we pass your request on to our participating dealer. We cannot be held responsible for how they use that information. Only contact information that you provide (name, address, phone, email address, etc.) is given to dealers. We do not collect any sensitive financial information like social security numbers, bank account numbers, or credit card numbers.

Will you disclose the information you collect to outside third parties?

We will disclose personal information and/or an IP address, when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:

    • Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities and conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process
    • Protect and defend our rights or property or the rights and properties of our dealers or users
    • Identify persons who may be violating the law
    • Fulfill a user's order or request
We will use reasonable precautions to keep the information disclosed to us secure.

What else should I know about my privacy?

Our web site contains hyperlinks to third party Web sites. Our site also may contains advertisements of third parties. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such third party Web sites or advertisers. We do not share any of the individual personal information you provide to us with the third parties to which we links, except as stated elsewhere within this Privacy Policy. Please check with those Web sites to determine their privacy policy.

Keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example through e-mail, discussion lists, or elsewhere - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.

Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please be careful and responsible when you are online.
