How we collect and use personal information
Registering for membership on our site gives you access to all the site’s information and features. When you access the Existing Account Registration Process, we will ask you for your: Name, Company Name, Customer ID, Password, and Email Address. This information is used to setup your account on our site so that you can place orders. The New Account Registration Process collects more extensive business information that will be used to setup and verify your new account. If you choose at that time to complete a Online Credit Application, we will collect more extensive information that is only used to process your application for credit. During the Checkout Process, we will ask for more specific details that will be used to fulfill your order. We collect this information only to complete your order and to notify you of your order status.
With your approval, we may occasionally send e-mail to notify you about important changes to the site, new services, and special offers from Marathon Fasteners & Hardware. If you would rather not receive these e-mail notifications, you may simply opt-out.
How we protect your personal information
All personal data you enter on Marathon Fasteners & Hardware is encrypted with 128-bit secure server software (SSL) that encodes the information before your Web browser software sends it to our servers. The SSL software decodes the data only after it reaches our servers, meaning the chance of unauthorized access to your personal information while in transit has been greatly reduced. In addition to using this secure technology, we work tirelessly to ensure that we use any information you provide us only in ways you have approved.
