Disclosure of Personal Information in the Event of Merger or Sale of Assets

MDM, or its related entites, could merge with or be acquired by another business entity, or all or substantially all of their respective assets could be acquired. Should such a combination, acquisition or transaction occur, you should expect that MDM would share some or all of your personal information with the acquiring or merged entity to continue serving you and other users of the Site.

Cobranded and Other Affiliated Sites

Certain information or services offered or provided on or through the Site from time to time may be provided on or through other sites operated by or in conjunction with third party providers ("Partners"). These sites may have the same "look and feel" of the Site, and are often cobranded, such that a Partner's logo or name may appear on the site, or the Partner's name may appear in the URL. Aggregate or personally identifiable information collected about you on these sites may be shared by MDM with that Partner. A Partner will not rent, sell, or disclose any of your personally identifiable information to third parties unless you consent to its doing so, for example, by opting-in while on a particular site to receive information or offers from a Partner's affiliates, partners, or other third parties.

Third Party Links and Member Websites

You acknowledge that we do not monitor, control or endorse the information collection or privacy practices of any third parties, any co-branded or other affiliated sites which may or may not be owned or operated by or in conjunction with MDM, or any credit card order processors, product shippers or other third parties who provide services throughout the Site. Accordingly, MDM assumes no liability or responsibility for the information collection and privacy practices of any third party. In addition, MDM is not responsible for the content of any third party websites, including a third party's use of any cookies or any other information (such as IP address, browser type or operating system) collected when you "click-through" links to their sites or view advertisements served by them. Even though certain information collected by such third parties might not identify you personally, we strongly encourage you to become familiar with their privacy practices, and to contact such third parties if you have any questions about their respective privacy policies.
In addition, the Site may provide links to other Internet websites or resources ("Linked Sites"). MDM neither controls nor endorses such Linked Sites nor have we reviewed or approved any content that appears on such Linked Sites. You acknowledge and agree that MDM is not responsible for the legality, accuracy or inappropriate nature of any content, advertising, products or other materials on or available from such Linked Sites. You further acknowledge and agree that MDM shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such content, goods, and services available on or through any such Linked Site.


The Site uses reasonable security methods to protect the data that resides on our servers. However, no security system is impenetrable. MDM cannot warrant or guarantee the security of its servers, nor can it guarantee that information that users supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to MDM over the Internet. If we ever ask users to enter credit card numbers, that information shall always be encrypted.
