Please read our privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) carefully before using www.monumark.com. If you continue to browse and use this website you are agreeing to comply with and be bound by our published Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

 

The Term “Monumark”, or “monumark.com”, or “us”, or “we”, or “our” refers to the owner of the website, Monumark, LLC. The term “you” refers to a user and/or viewer of our website. The term “website” or “site” refers to the monumark.com world wide website. The term “Services” refers to both the monumark.com world wide website and the mnmrk.com redirect service.

 

Scope

 

This Privacy Policy covers how Monumark.com treats user or Personally Identifiable Information that the Services collect and receive.

 

General

 

In general, you can browse the Services without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself to us. Monumark.com does not collect Personally Identifiable Information about individuals, except when specifically and knowingly provided by such individuals on interactive areas of the Services. "Personally Identifiable Information" is information that can be used to uniquely identify, contact, or locate a single person [or can be used with other sources to uniquely identify a single individual], and that is not otherwise publicly available. Any posting made while using the Services, and any other information that can be viewed by the public is not considered personal information or "Personally Identifiable Information" and therefore is not the type of information covered by this Privacy Policy.

 

Information We Collect

 

Personally Identifiable Information: Examples of Personally Identifiable Information we collect can include [but is not limited to] name, postal address, email address, credit card number and related information, and phone number. We also maintain a record of all information that you submit to us, including email and other correspondence. We may collect Personally Identifiable Information when you register to receive alerts or offerings, access or submit information in connection with certain Services, post other content through the Services, purchase products or other services, or participate in other activities offered or administered by Monumark.com.

 

We may also collect Personally Identifiable Information about your transactions with us and with some of our business partners. This information might include information necessary to process payments due to us from you, such as your credit card number.

 

Other Anonymous Information: Like most websites, Monumark.com also receives and records information on our server logs from your browser automatically and through the use of electronic tools such as cookies. Our server logs automatically receive and record information from your browser (including, for example, your IP address, and the page(s) you visit). The information gathered through these methods is not Personally Identifiable Information; i.e., it cannot be used to uniquely identify, contact, or locate a single person.

Certain information that we collect automatically or with electronic tools (such as cookies) is used to anonymously track and measure user traffic for the Services and to enhance your experience with the Services. For example:

 

  • IP Addresses/Session Information. We occasionally may obtain IP addresses from users depending upon how you access the Services. IP addresses, browser, and session information may be used for various purposes, including to help administer the Services and diagnose and prevent service or other technology problems related to the Services. This information also may be used to estimate the total number of users downloading any App and browsing other Services from specific geographical areas, to help determine which users have access privileges to certain content or services that we offer, and to monitor and prevent fraud and abuse. IP addresses are not linked to Personally Identifiable Information

If you reject cookies, you may not be able to use our Services that require you to sign in, or to take full advantage of all our offerings. Cookies may involve the transmission of information either directly to us or to another party we authorize to collect information on our behalf.

Accessibility of Your Postings

 

Your own use of the Services may disclose personal information or Personally Identifiable Information to the public. For example:

  • When you post a message to any message board, blog, or other public forum available through the Services, your user ID or alias that you are posting under may be visible to other users, and you have the ability to post a message that may include personal information.

 

If you post Personally Identifiable Information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Such activities are beyond the control of Monumark.com and the coverage of this Privacy Policy. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online. In addition, although we employ technology and software designed to minimize spam sent to users and unsolicited, automatic posts to message boards, blogs, or other public forums available through the Services, we cannot ensure such measures to be 100% reliable or satisfactory.

Security and Confidentiality

 

The security and confidentiality of your Personally Identifiable Information is extremely important to us. We have implemented technical, administrative, and physical security measures to protect user information from unauthorized access and improper use. From time to time, we review our security procedures in order to consider appropriate new technology and methods. Please be aware though that, despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and no data transmissions over the web can be guaranteed 100% secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk.

You may opt out of receiving future mailings or other information from Monumark. If the mailing does not have an email cancellation form, send an email to Contact Us detailing the type of information that you no longer wish to receive.
