Effective Date: February 22, 2010

MM HERMAN IS COMMITTED TO YOUR PRIVACY. 

Your privacy is of paramount important to MM Herman & Associates LLC (herein referred to as “MM Herman”; "we"; "us"; or "our").  Our Statement on Privacy is designed to inform you about our collection, storage, use, transmission, and disclosure of information, particularly with respect to your personal, financial, or otherwise sensitive information (herein referred to as “sensitive information”).  Our subsidiaries and joint ventures adhere to similar, although not necessarily identical, guidelines as those herein described - MM Herman aims to provide a strong, consistent set of privacy policies and practices across its business.   This Statement on Privacy is available on the bottom of every page connected to this website, including at any point where you provide us with sensitive information.  In addition to reviewing this statement, we recommend that you review other website’s privacy policies as you navigate to different sites from this one; we are not responsible for the privacy policies of any third-party websites, including those sites linked to our site.  MM Herman reserves the right to amend this statement and any related policies at any time for any reason without notice, permission, or liability.   

WE ONLY COLLECT SENSITIVE INFORMATION THAT YOU VOLUNTARILY PROVIDE. 

You can browse our website without revealing any sensitive information.  The only sensitive information about you that we collect, store, transfer, disclose and/or use is information that you voluntarily provide to us through either a request to process a financial transaction; a request for support, assistance, customer service, or information; or other correspondence.  When MM Herman collects sensitive information, we obtain only the information necessary to: furnish our goods and/or services; provide service, support and/or other assistance; respond to correspondence or other requests for information; fulfill any legal or regulatory requirements; attempt verification or authentication; collect on overdue payments; combat fraud, identity theft, and proprietary/intellectual property infringement; resolve disputes; prevent potential or actual prohibited or illegal activities; protect the rights, property, and safety of others; enforce our terms, conditions, policies, and practices; customize, measure, and improve our product offerings, service offerings, website operation (including content, security, design, interface and function),  marketing/advertising efforts, and third-party relationships; contact you regarding products, services, deals, notices, or announcements that may be of interest; and optimize the purchasing and shipping process for our customers.  Potentially sensitive information we collect, store, transfer, disclose, and/or utilize may include, but is not limited to, your name, phone number, fax number, billing/shipping address, e-mail address, credit card or bankcard information, bank account information, account ID/password information, customer history information (e.g. transactional history), birth date, social security number, administrative registration information (e.g. DEA certificate information), credit and credit history information, criminal record information, correspondence and requests for information, personal/business reference information, and/or additional information we request for the purposes of authentication or determining compliance with MM Herman policies.  MM Herman does not sell domain name or aggregate information to third parties. 

WE LIMIT ACCESS TO YOUR SENSTIVE INFORMATION ON A NEED-TO-KNOW BASIS. 

MM Herman only grants access to your sensitive information to those persons or entities who require it to: complete a transaction; provide a requested service; address a question, concern or request for service/support/assistance; enforce MM Herman’s terms, conditions, policies, and practices; combat fraud, identify theft, proprietary/intellectual property infringement, or other prohibited or illegal activity; protect the rights, property, and/or safety of others; or fulfill a business responsibility, including without limitation credit reporting, verification, authentication, bill collection, risk management, advertising/marketing, and business optimization.  These individuals/entities are only granted access to your sensitive information on a need-to-know basis; it will not be openly available to them.  We will disclose information in response to a lawful request issued by a legal authority with the jurisdiction to lodge such a request.  All communications of your personal data will be encrypted at high levels of security.  MM Herman works to ensure that vendors, distributors, partners, joint ventures, licensees/sublicensees, and other third-parties we engage are typically bound to contractual requirements and/or internal policies that aim to ensure the utmost protection of sensitive information – again, these individuals will only have access to your information on a need-to-know basis. 

WE WILL NOT SELL YOUR SENSITIVE INFORMATION WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT. 

In the event that MM Herman would like to sell your sensitive information to third parties, customers will be given an opportunity to opt-out of these types of disclosures.  Please note that we currently may combine your information with information we collect from other companies and use it to customize, measure, and improve our product offerings, service offerings, website operation (including content, security, design, interface and function), marketing/advertising efforts, and third-party relationships– however, this will in no manner involve the sale of your sensitive information from MM Herman to a third party. 

WE MAY COLLECT NON-SENSITIVE INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR ONLINE ACTIVITY. 

MM Herman reserves the right to collect, store, transfer, disclose, and/or otherwise use non-sensitive information concerning your online interaction with us and our affiliates.  Examples of this type of information include, but are not limited to, page view data, IP information and other computer/connection information, advertising/marketing data, site traffic information, and, generally, web-based log data.  Please note that we may use “cookies”, web beacons, and other technology to help us customize, measure, and improve our product offerings, service offerings, website operation (including content, security, design, and function),  marketing/advertising efforts, and third-party relationships.  However, recall that MM Herman does not sell domain name or aggregate information to third parties.

All officers, directors, employees, and contractors of MM Herman are bound to this Statement on Privacy.  Any such individual who violates this Statement of Privacy and/or its inherent principles is subject to disciplinary action, possibly including dismissal and/or notification of the proper authorities.
