For the purposes of this statement, personal information means information about an identifiable individual but does not include information that enables someone to be contacted at their place of business. Correspondingly non-identifiable information means information that is not identifiable to an individual - that is, information that cannot be associated with or traced back to a specific individual.

When you provide us with personal information, that information may be used to communicate with you, to send you information about Menkes, to promote and offer products and services that may be of interest to you, and of course, to respond to any specific requests you have from time to time with respect to our products and services. We may also use personal information collected from you to assist us in developing and customizing our products and services to better meet the demands for our customers. Personal information may also be used for any other purpose permitted by law. However, we will not sell, rent, trade or market personal information that we collect from you to third parties.
