Like most website operators, Merchfits collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Merchfits' purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Merchfits' visitors use its website.
Merchfits also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Merchfits does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Those who engage in transactions with Merchfits are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Merchfits discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Merchfits' behalf or to provide services available at Merchfits' websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Merchfits' websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Merchfits will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Merchfits discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Merchfits believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Merchfits, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Merchfits website and have supplied your email address, Merchfits may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Merchfits and our products. We primarily use blogs and social media to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Merchfits takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
