1. Data We Collect From You
1.1 In order to operate the Markett Platform and to provide You with Information about products or services that may be of interest to You, We may collect “Personal Information” (i.e. Information that could be used to contact You directly (without using the Markett Platform) such as full name, postal address, phone number, credit/debit card Information, or email address) or “Demographic Information” (i.e . Information that You submit, or that We collect, that is not Personal Information; this may include, but is not limited to, zip code, hometown, gender, username, age/birth date).
1.2 You represent and warrant that You have the authority to provide Us with any such contact Information. Demographic Information is divided into two categories:
- “Non-Public Information”, which consists of your name, telephone number, address, and certain other information about you that may be required by Us to provide the Services or be disclosed by you during your use of the Services; and
- “Public Information”, which consists of all other publically available demographic Information.
1.3 Please note that We do not knowingly collect, keep or maintain Personal Information from children under the age of 18 on the Markett Platform, as We require that all users represent to Us that they are at least 18 years old. If we learn that we have collected Personal Information from a child under age 13, we will delete that Information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 13 may have provided us Personal Information, please contact us at [email protected]
1.4 Whenever you interact with the Markett Platform, we automatically receive and record Information on our server logs from your browser or device, which may include your IP address, device identification, “cookie” Information, the type of browser and/or device you’re using to access the Markett Platform, and the page or feature you requested.
1.5 “Cookies” are identifiers we transfer to your browser or device that allow us to recognize your browser or device and tell us how and when pages and features in the Markett Platform are visited and by how many people. You may be able to change the preferences on your browser or device to prevent or limit your device’s acceptance of cookies, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of our features.
1.7 We may use this data to customize content for you that we think you might like, based on your usage patterns. We may also use it to improve the Markett Platform – for example, this data can tell us how often users use a particular feature of the Markett Platform, and we can use that knowledge to make the Markett Platform interesting to as many users as possible.
1.9 Your browser may offer you a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and/or across different websites. The Markett Platform do not support Do Not Track requests at this time, which means that we collect Information about your online activity both while you are using the Markett Platform and after you leave our Markett Platform.
2. How We May Use Personal Information
2.1 We use Your email address and Your other Personal Information to help Us efficiently operate the Markett Platform, to contact You in connection with Your transactions and other activities on the Markett Platform (including, but not limited to, confirmation emails, or important news that could affect Your relationship with Markett), to forward Information to You from other Users and to contact You and others to suggest potential opportunities and suggestions for the Services. These types of communications are known as “Operational Communications.” In some cases, Operational Communications may also contain commercial messages, such as banner ads and special offers.
2.2 To operate the Markett Platform, including processing Your transactions and supporting Your activities on the Markett Platform, We may share Your Personal Information with Our agents, representatives, contractors and service providers so they can provide Us with support services such as email origination, receipt or support services, customer relationship management services, and order fulfillment. We require these entities not to use Your Information for any other purpose.
2.3 By purchasing, or registering or making reservations for, products or services offered or sponsored by third parties on the Markett Platform, or electing to receive communications (such as emails or material by mail) or electing to participate in contests, sweepstakes or other programs (such as discount or rewards programs), offered or sponsored by third parties on the Markett Platform, You consent to Our providing Your Personal Information to those third parties. Those third parties may use Your Personal Information in accordance with their own privacy policies. You will need to contact those third parties to instruct them directly regarding Your preferences for the use of Your Personal Information by them. Additionally, You agree that We may use and disclose all such Information so submitted to such third parties in the same manner in which We are entitled to use and disclose any other Information You submit to Us.
2.4 Any third party with whom We are allowed to share Your Personal Information is authorized to use Your Personal Information in accordance with Our contractual arrangements with such third parties and in accordance with their own privacy policies, over which We have no control, and You agree that We are not responsible or liable for any of their actions or omissions. Those who contact You will need to be instructed directly by You regarding Your preferences for the use of Your Personal Information by them.

3.4 California Privacy Rights.
California law permits Users who are California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we have disclosed their personal information (if any) for their direct marketing purposes in the prior calendar year, as well as the type of personal information disclosed to those third parties. See the “Contact” section for where to send such requests. Markett does not share personal information with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes without your prior consent. Accordingly, you can prevent disclosure of your personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes by withholding consent.
4. Information Retention
5. How We Use Demographic Data
5.2 When You respond to an advertisement, however, We ask You to remember that if that ad that is targeted to a demographic group and You decide to give the advertiser Your Personal Information, then the advertiser may be able to identify You as being a member of that demographic group.
Markett provides Users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from Us and Our partners at the point where We request Information about the visitor. Markett gives Users the option to remove their Information from Our database, to not receive future communications or to no longer receive Our service.
7. Special Cases in Which We Share Personal Information
7.1 Your Personal Information may be passed on to a third party in the event of a transfer of ownership or assets, or a bankruptcy. We may also disclose Personal Information when We determine that such disclosure is necessary to comply with applicable law, to cooperate with law enforcement or to protect the interests or safety of Markett or other visitors to the Markett Platform.
8. Our Security Precautions
8.1 Your Markett Profile is password-protected so that only You and authorized Markett employees have access to Your account Information. Markett staff will never proactively reach out to You and ask for any personal account Information, including Your password. If You share a computer, You should sign out of Your Markett account and close the browser window before someone else logs on. This will help protect Your Information entered on public terminals from disclosure to third parties.
8.3 Markett has reasonable security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the Information under Our control. Your Information may be transferred to and maintained on computer networks which may be located outside of the state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction in which You reside, and the country or jurisdiction in which these computer networks are located may not have privacy laws as protective as the laws in Your country or jurisdiction.
