1. OUR PRIVACY COMMITMENT
MIKARTO ("MIKARTO," "we," "us" or "our") is committed to respecting the privacy rights and concerns of all users of the MIKARTO website where this Privacy Policy is posted (the "Site") (we refer to the Site and the services made available through the Site, collectively, as the "MIKARTO Features"). As such, we have established and implemented this Privacy Policy to inform visitors to the Site and users of the MIKARTO Features how we use and protect the information we collect through the Site and the MIKARTO Features. By visiting the Site or using any of the MIKARTO Features, you consent to MIKARTO's collection, use, storage, deletion and disclosure of information relating to you as set forth in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is effective as of the date set forth above and is only applicable to the Site and not to any other website that you may be able to access from the Site which may have its own data collection and use practices and policies.

This policy answers the following questions:

1. What information do we collect about you and how do we use it?
2. Will we share your personal information with third parties?
3. What choices do you have about the collection and use of your personal information?
4. What security measures do we take to safeguard your personal information?

2. WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU AND HOW DO WE USE IT?
Types of Information We Collect Personal information means information that can be used to identify and contact you. You need to submit personal information to access certain aspects of the Site and the MIKARTOFeatures. We collect personal information when you subscribe to our newsletter; participate in feedback forms, questionnaires, contests or sweepstakes; purchase a product through the MIKARTO Features; or receive customer or technical support. We collect information from you such as your name, address, email address, telephone number and date of birth when utilizing the Site and MIKARTO Features. When registering products through the Site we also collect information about your products and where you purchased your products. When you are purchasing products through the MIKARTO Features, you will also be required to provide a billing address and credit card or other payment information. No information of this type will be collected unless you have decided to purchase one of Ashcroft's products. How We Use Your Personal Information The personal information you provide to us will allow us to fulfil your product or service order; alert you of new products or services, features, or enhancements; handle your customer service questions or issues; administer promotions, contests and sweepstakes; register your products; and notify you of promotions, updates, or special offers that we think may interest you. We also use your email address and phone number as part of the MIKARTO Features in sending you messages about the MIKARTO Features and other general announcements. We keep track of your interactions with us, including but not limited to your activity within the MIKARTO Features. We may use personal information that you provide to us to send messages to you in response to your request to perform an activity in connection with your use of any of the MIKARTO Features. We may also use your personal information to contact you when necessary. We may use your personal information with non-personal information that we have collected in a manner such that the end-product does not personally identify you or any other user of the MIKARTO Features. We may make your personal information non-personally identifiable by either combining it with information about other users (aggregating your personal information with information about other users), or by removing characteristics (such as your name or email address) that make the information personally identifiable. This process is known as de-personalizing your information. You grant us a royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable and fully transferable right and license to use your personal information in connection with the creation and development of analytical and statistical analysis tools relating to the use of the customer data we collect in providing the MIKARTO Features (the Analytical Data). We are expressly authorized to make any commercial use of the Analytical Data, including without limitation, sharing the Analytical Data with third parties, provided that we do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer from us any part of the Analytical Data that personally identifies any MIKARTOFeatures users. Cookies “Cookies” are small bits of electronic information that a website sends to a visitor’s browser and are stored on the visitor’s hard drive. Like many websites, we employ cookies in certain areas of the Site to allow us to provide information to make your online experience more convenient. For example, when you return to the Site after logging in, cookies provide information to the Site so that the Site will remember who you are on subsequent visits, speeding up or enhancing your experience of the MIKARTO Features by, for instance, tailoring content to you. Cookies also prevent items placed in a shopping basket from disappearing by the time you checkout. Log Information Our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit the Site. This information includes your Internet Protocol address, your browser type and version, the search engine you used to find the Ashcroft Features, if any, which MIKARTO Features you use and when and how long you use them. We use this information to monitor and analyze how users use the MIKARTO Features, to provide customer service and to maintain and improve the MIKARTO Features. Children’s Privacy We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. We take children’s privacy seriously, and encourage parents to play an active role in their children’s online experience at all times.

We may also use your personal information to provide analyses of our users in the aggregate (including Analytical Data subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy) to prospective partners and other third parties. In addition, we will share the personal information we collect from you under the following circumstances: Protection of rights We will share personal information if we have a good faith belief that (i) access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, such as a court order or subpoena, or a request by law enforcement or governmental authorities, (ii) such action is appropriate to enforce our Terms of Use for the MIRKARTO Features, including any investigation of potential violations thereof, (iii) such action is necessary to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues associated with the MIKARTO Features, or (iv) such action is appropriate to protect the rights, property or safety of MIKARTO, its employees, users of the MIKARTO Features or others.

For example, we may partner with other companies to process payments for the MIKARTO Features.
