Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting the privacy of our customers, which is why we do not disclose or distribute Personal Information (as defined below) regarding our customers to any third party except as provided in this Privacy Statement. We hope the policy below will answer all of your questions regarding how we treat information gathered from visitors to the Site.  If you have questions or concerns regarding this Privacy Statement, you should contact us by sending us an email.


Information Collection and Use

As part of your use of the Site, you may submit, or MKB may otherwise obtain, certain information from or relating to you (“Information”). Information may include certain “Personal Information”, which is personally-identifiable data that is not generally available to the public, and may include information such as the following: your name; your residential, business and email addresses; your company or business name; information about your use of MKB’s services, credit information and billing records; personal information concerning your interests, occupation, gender and other demographic information; service inquiries; and your status as a MKB customer. Personal Information is collected or obtained by MKB only when: (i) you specifically and knowingly choose to provide it to MKB, or (ii) when it is otherwise generated or gathered by MKB pursuant to this Privacy Statement or another agreement with you.  For example, you may provide MKB with Personal Information when you subscribe to and use a MKB service, place an order for products sold on the Site or complete a MKB form or questionnaire.



MKB also receives Information from its visitors that does not constitute Personal Information, such as cookie information which will collect data anonymously and track user patterns on the Site.  Information stored in cookies is used to help you navigate the Site, record your user preferences, and collect information for the mailing of circulars and special offers. If you are concerned about the potential use of Information that our Site gathers through the use of cookies, you can set your computer to prompt you before accepting a cookie or by changing your browser's cookie preferences to disable cookies or delete any existing cookies.  However, if you refuse to accept our Site’s cookies, you may not be able to access all or a portion of our services.


Disclosure of Information

MKB may transfer Information to its Affiliates who may utilize the Information in accordance with, and subject to the terms of, this Privacy Statement.  For the purposes of this Privacy Statement, “Affiliates” means entities that, directly or indirectly, control, are controlled by or are under common control with MKB, where “control”, “controlled by” and “common control” mean the possession, directly or indirectly, of the power to direct, or cause the direction of, the management policies of an entity, whether through the ownership of voting securities, by contract or otherwise.

Except as provided above with respect to transfers of Information to its Affiliates, MKB will not share your Information with third parties except: (i) as provided in this Privacy Statement; (ii) with your prior consent; or (iii) as we may reasonably believe is required by law.  Please note that once your Information is shared with a third party (other than MKB’s Affiliates as provided above), it becomes subject to the information use and sharing practices of that third party and this Privacy Statement will not restrict the use or sharing of your Information by such third party.

As part of the provision of goods and services to you, and in connection with MKB’s and its Affiliates’ marketing and promotional efforts, third parties may have access to your Information.  For example, MKB and its Affiliates may utilize third-party hosting, network and service providers (each of which may have its own vendors and contractors who may have access to Information).

MKB and its Affiliates may transfer your Information in the event that MKB, its Affiliates and/or their respective assets are acquired by or merged with or into one or more other companies in one or more related or unrelated transactions.

Protecting Children

MKB is committed to protecting the privacy of children. MKB does not knowingly solicit or collect personally identifiable information online from children under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If MKB learns that a child under the age of 13 has submitted personally identifiable information online it will take all reasonable measures to delete such information from its databases and to not use such information for any purpose (except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as required by law).


Opt-out Email/Circulars Policy

We ask that you tell us when you do not wish to receive periodic emails and/or circulars from us. We will only send email for customer service purposes and to those visitors who have indicated that they wish to receive other types of email from us. If at any time you wish to stop receiving email and circulars from us, you can always remove your name from our mailing list by sending an email to us stating that you wish to unsubscribe.


Security of the Information You Provide

We use commercially reasonable efforts to keep your Information secure. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt your Personal Information before it is transmitted to us. You can tell you are sending Personal Information securely by the unbroken key icon or closed lock icon that should appear at the bottom of your internet browser’s window (depending on what browser you use). These icons will appear when you are placing an order on our Site. In addition, you will see our Site address changes slightly, from http:// to https:// indicating a secure server connection is being used.  The computers that store your Information are located in a separate facility which employs certain firewall and other security technology.
