Privacy Policy


Mike Albert Leasing, Inc. and its affiliated companies (hereafter referred to as “MAL”) collects personally identifiable information when such information is provided through our Web site (“Site”) on a voluntary basis. For example, such personally identifiable information may be gathered from user registrations, information requests or suggestion posting. Users also should be aware that information related to users, including IP addresses, might be automatically collected through the standard operation of the Site or through the use of “cookies.” Cookies are small text files that a Web site can use to recognize repeat users, facilitate the user’s ongoing access to, use of the site, and allow a site to track usage behavior and compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements and targeted advertising. If a user does not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows the user to deny acceptance of cookies; however, users should note that cookies may be necessary to provide the user with certain features available on MAL’s site. Personally identifiable information on individual users will not be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties without the approval of the user except as provided below. MAL may disclose user information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with MAL’s rights or property, other MAL users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. MAL may disclose user information to law enforcement authorities when they request it. MAL may utilize contractors to perform services on its behalf and may release personal information to such contractors under confidentiality agreements. MAL may also share information among our group of affiliated companies. MAL reserves the right to perform statistical analyses of user behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site, and to perform other studies that do not involve disclosure of personally identifiable information, which may be provided to unaffiliated third parties without restriction. Additionally, users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information to public areas of a Web site, that information, along with any substantive information disclosed in the user’s communication, can be collected and correlated and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of MAL. MAL may use e-mail addresses and other information supplied by users to send occasional promotional messages concerning MAL and its affiliates, and our business partners. Upon request, MAL will allow any user to “opt out” of further promotional contacts at any time. Additionally upon request, MAL will use reasonable efforts to allow users to update/correct personal information previously submitted which the user states is erroneous to the extent such activities will not compromise privacy or security interests. MAL takes precautions to prevent unintended disclosure of personal information stored on our servers due to “hacking” or other unauthorized access. However, MAL is not liable for any disclosure of personal information which occurs due to unauthorized access, whether or not it could have been prevented by the use of additional security measures. This Privacy Policy is effective as of November, 2006. MAL reserves the right to change this Policy at any time by posting notice of a new privacy statement on its Web site. By using this Site, you signify your assent to the MAL Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this Policy, you may not use our Site. Your continued use of the MAL site following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes. You should review this Policy regularly to obtain prompt notice of any changes. Use of the Site and any transaction arising from such use shall be governed by the laws of the State of Ohio, U.S.A., without regard to principles of conflicts of law. The courts located in Hamilton County, Ohio shall have the exclusive jurisdiction and venue over any legal action by you against MAL.
