Earnest Machine Products Company (“Company”, “Us”, “We”, “Our”) respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it through our compliance with this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy describes the personal information that we collect from you, or that you provide through your use of our Website located at [www.earnestmachine.com] (“Website”) and how that information may be used or disclosed by us.

This Privacy Policy applies to all information we collect through our Website and to records and copies of your correspondence (including your e-mail address) if you contact us. This Privacy Policy does not apply to information collected by a third-party site or by a third-party application that may link to or be accessible from our Website.

Please read the following carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your personal information and how we will treat it. By using or accessing the Website and by providing any personal data to us through the Website or email or correspondence on the Website, you agree to the use of your personal information as set out in this Privacy Policy.

Information We Collect from You

We collect several types of information from and about people who use our Website, including:

  • information you provide to us; and
  • information we collect as you navigate through the Website, including usage details, IP addresses, and information collected through cookies.

A cookie is a small file stored on the hard drive of your computer that we use to help improve our website and deliver a better, more personalized service to you. The use of cookies allows us to:

  • estimate our audience size and the usage patterns of the Website;
  • store information about your preferences, allowing us to customize our Website based on your individual interests;
  • speed up your searches; and
  • recognize you when you return to the Website.

You may refuse to accept cookies by selecting the appropriate setting on your browser. However, if you choose to refuse cookies, you may be unable to access certain parts of our Website. Unless you have adjusted the setting on your browser, our system will issue cookies when you direct your browser to our Website.

Information You Provide to Us

We collect basic personal information directly from you when you provide it to us to place orders, make information requests, or register to receive our materials. We will not collect any personal information from you that we do not need to provide and oversee our goods and services. The types of personal information that you may provide to us are:

  • your name, mailing address, email address, and phone number;
  • your payment information; and
  • details of transactions you carry out through the Website and during the fulfillment of your orders.

The Way We Use Information

We use the personal information you provide when placing an order or requesting information:

  • to fulfill your order;
  • to respond to your information requests, emails and correspondence;
  • for approved marketing activities, including sending marketing emails to those who consent; and
  • if it is necessary, for the performance of a contract with you or to take steps to enter into such a contract.

We do not share your personal information with third parties unless it is necessary to fill your order or information requests or if there is a legal obligation for us to provide that information (such as a subpoena or court order).

If your information may be used in a way other than stated in this Privacy Policy, we will first obtain your consent to that use. We take all reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is secure.

Retention of Your Information

We will not keep your personal information for longer than is necessary to carry out the lawful purpose(s) for which it was obtained. If you consent to marketing, any information for that purpose will be kept until you notify us that you no longer wish to receive our marketing information.

Access to Your Information

You have the right to access your personal information that you submit through the Website and you may request that your personal information be corrected, updated, or deleted. You can review and update your personal information by visiting your account profile page and making those changes. You may also send us an email at [email protected] to request access to, correct, update or delete any personal information that you have provided to us.

Data Security

We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. However, the safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of the Website, you are responsible for keeping that password confidential. We ask that you not share your password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we use commercially reasonable efforts to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted through the Website. Therefore, any transmission of personal information is at your own risk.
