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.
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.
