What Are Cookies?
How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?
IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web server as part of demographic and profile data known as “traffic data” so that data (such as the Web pages you request) can be sent to you.
Sharing and Selling Information
We do not share, sell, lend or lease any of the information that uniquely identify a subscriber (such as email addresses or personal details) with anyone except to the extent it is necessary to process transactions or provide services that you have requested.
How Do We Protect Your Information and Secure Information Transmissions?
The Machine Market has made a substantial investment in the latest server, database, backup and firewall technologies to protect our information assets. These technologies are deployed as part of a sophisticated security architecture. All user data resides in a tightly controlled, secure data centre. Access to stored data is password protected and passwords are account specific. These investments mean that information about the identity and preferences of Users is never accessible to anyone outside The Machine Market except as provided hereinbefore. To achieve this level of security, we use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption that encodes information as it is being sent over the Internet. We will maintain safeguards to protect the security of these servers and your personally identifiable information
How Can You Access and Correct Your Information?
You may request access to all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain in our database by emailing [email protected]
What About Legally Compelled Disclosure of Information?
We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights. The Machine Market may also disclose account 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 violating our Terms of Service or Commission Agreement or to protect the safety of our users and the Public.
What About Other Web Sites Linked to Our Web Site?
We are not responsible for the practices employed by Web sites linked to or from our Web site or the information or content contained therein. Often links to other Web sites are provided solely as pointers to information on topics that may be useful to the users of our Web site.
Our Commitment To Data Security:

The laws on holding personal data in the United Kingdom may be less stringent than the laws of your Country of residence or citizenship but The Machine Market will hold and transmit your Information in a safe, confidential and secure environment. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Once the subscriber unsubscribes, The Machine Market will discontinue sending the particular messages as soon as technically feasible. p
Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend’s name and e-mail address. The Machine Market will automatically send the friend a one-time e-mail inviting them to visit the site. The Machine Market stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time e-mail. The friend may contact The Machine Market at [email protected] to request the removal of this information from the database.
Control of Your Password
Upon your written request, we will deactivate your account, contact information, and financial information from our active databases. To make this request, email [email protected] Such information will be deactivated as soon as reasonably possible in accordance with our deactivation policy and applicable law.
We will retain in our files information you have requested to remove in some circumstances, such as to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce our Commission Agreement and Terms of Service. Further, such prior information is never completely removed from our databases due to technical and legal constraints, including stored “back up” systems. Therefore, you should not expect that all of your personally identifiable information would be completely removed from our databases in response to your requests.
A Special Note About Children
Children are not eligible to use our services unsupervised and we ask that children (under the age of 14) do not submit any personal information to us. If you are a minor, you can use this service only in conjunction with permission and guidance from your parents or guardians.
