1Collection of Information on the Site.  As with any website on the Internet, when you visit the Website, our web server automatically logs standard access information about your Internet domain, the files you request on our server, and the Internet address of the website from which you came.  While our system may collect this information, we generally do not identify you or match this information with your other personal information, if any; however, we reserve the right to do so under certain circumstances (including, but not limited to, reporting to law enforcement authorities or in response to subpoenas).  The information is used to diagnose Website technical problems, facilitate your use of the Website, or track aggregate Website traffic patterns.  We may share this aggregated data with third parties.

Cookies, or text files that are placed on your hard drive by a website when you visit that website, identify your computer and record your preferences and other data about your visit to that website so when you return to the site, the site can personalize your return visit.  Mercury may use cookies to collect information about your visit.  You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.  By prohibiting the use of cookies, however, you may restrict your access to certain types of content or feature.

Our general policy is to collect no personal information (such as your name, email address, postal address, home or business telephone numbers) (“Personal Data”) about you when you visit the Website, unless you affirmatively choose to make such information available to us.

2.  Use of Personal Data.  We may use your Personal Data for any of our business purposes, including, but not limited to, corresponding with you, announcements, offering or furnishing products and services, personalizing the types of information you receive from Mercury, assessing trends in your use of the Website, developing content and functionality that helps us better serve your needs, improving the services we provide and engaging in advertising and marketing activities.  If you provide us Personal Data, we or others may use that Personal Data to communicate with you by email, telephone or otherwise.  There may be instances where you will have the opportunity to subscribe to an email list that will send information about products or services of our company or other companies to your email address, but this will be done only with your permission and consent.

3.  Sharing of Personal Data.  We may share your Personal Data with third parties that assist us in providing our services or products.  We may share your Personal Data with companies that offer products or services that we believe may be of interest to you.  Further, without limiting the foregoing, we may share Personal Data with third parties for market and industry research purposes, for advertising and marketing purposes, and potentially other reasons.  If you prefer, by contacting us at the mailing address listed below, you can choose that your Personal Data not be shared with third parties for reasons other than assisting us in providing our services or products or otherwise responding to your requests or orders.

We may also disclose information about you if we believe that disclosure is necessary for the public interest.  We may release Personal Data in order to comply with requests from law enforcement and government agencies, to enforce the Terms of Use and other agreements, and to protect customers and others.  We may do so when we believe in good faith that disclosing this information is otherwise necessary or advisable, including, for instance, to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interfering with the rights or property of Mercury, another user or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.

Mercury may transfer any information in its databases, including, but not limited to, Personal Data, to an affiliate or to a third party as part of a transfer of business assets.
