We value our users and respect your privacy. We may collect information about you through the Website in an effort to improve your online experience and to communicate with you about our products, services, and promotions. Neither your name nor anything personal about you is sold or shared with any non-affiliated company or agency. As described in greater detail below, however, we may share your information under certain circumstances with businesses with whom we work to help the Website function. This Policy describes the personal information we may collect about you, why we may collect it, how we may use it, and when we may share it with third parties. This Policy also describes the choices you can make about how we may collect and use certain of that information. This Policy also contains certain other terms that apply to the Website and your relationship with us.
We reserve the right to change or update this Policy by posting such changes or updates to the Website. Amendments to this Policy will be posted on the Website and will be effective when posted. It is your responsibility to review any such changes or updates and to check the Website from time to time to be sure you understand all terms and conditions, agreements, and policies of the Website and are in compliance with them. You can tell if the Policy has changed by checking the last modified date that appears at the end of the Policy. Your continued use of the Website following the posting of any amendment, modification, or change will constitute your acceptance thereof.
Types of Personal Information Collected
We may ask you for certain kinds of personal information, such as your name, e-mail address, street address, telephone number, and other information that identifies you as an individual (“Personal Information”) to provide the services you request.
When you send us an e-mail or fill out our contact or subscription form, you may be added to our e-mail list. Subscriptions to the e-mail list can be canceled at any time. To be removed from our e-mail list, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name and e-mail address in the message, or click the “unsubscribe” button found at the bottom of the e-mails we send you. Please allow us 10 business days from when the request was received to complete the removal, as some of our promotions may already have been in process before you submitted your request.
Use of Your Personal Information
We may use the Personal Information we collect for various purposes, including:
to identify your product and service preferences, so we can notify you of new or additional products, services, and promotions that might be of interest to you;
to notify you of product recalls or provide other information concerning products you have purchased;
to improve our service, merchandise selections, customer service, and overall Website experience; and
to communicate with you by e-mail, postal mail, telephone, text message, or other means about our company, our products, or other information that we believe may be of interest to you.
Sharing Personal Information with Third Parties
We do not share, sell, or trade your Personal Information with any third parties, except with your consent or as described herein.
We may disclose your Personal Information when legally required to do so; to cooperate with law enforcement investigations or other legal proceedings; to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Website; to limit our legal liability and protect our rights; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of users or the public.
We may also disclose your Personal Information to outside individuals or companies that help us bring you the products and services we offer and to create, operate, and maintain the Website. For example, we may work with third parties: (a) to manage a database of customer information; (b) to assist us in distributing e-mails; (c) to assist us with direct marketing and data collection; (d) to provide data storage and analysis; (e) to provide fraud prevention; (f) to provide customer service; (g) to provide fulfillment services; (h) to provide order processing services; and (i) to provide other services designed to assist us in developing and running the Website and maximizing our business potential. We require that these outside companies agree to keep all information shared with them confidential and to use the information only to perform their obligations to us.
In addition, if we go through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, your Personal Information may be among the assets transferred.
The Website may allow users to post comments and other content to the Website. Any Personal Information that you post to the Website will become public information and will be accessible to other users of the Website. In addition, your username will be viewable by other users, and we, therefore, encourage you to use a username that is not your actual name. We have no responsibility to maintain the privacy or security of any such Personal Information that you may choose to post to the Website.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Through your use of the Website, we may also collect certain non-personally identifiable information (“NPII”) from you. NPII is not associated with you as an individual. It is measured anonymously and only in the aggregate.
We may also use "pixel tags" (sometimes called "web beacons" or "clear gifs"), which are tiny graphic images, on the Website. Pixel tags help us analyze users’ online behavior and measure the effectiveness of the Website and our advertising and marketing. We may also use other analytical tools to evaluate site performance through the use of aggregated data, which contain no Personal Information. We may work with service providers to help us track, collect, and analyze this information.
Cookies, pixel tags, and other analytical tools that we may use on the Website may collect information about your visit, including the pages you view, the features you use, the links you click, and other actions you take in connection with the Website. This information may include your computer's Internet protocol (IP) address, browser type, operating system, date and time information, and other technical information about your computer. We may also track certain information about the identity of the website you visited immediately before coming to the Website. We do not otherwise track any information about your use of other websites.
Cookies, pixel tags, and other analytical tools in our e-mails may be used to track your interactions with those messages, such as when you receive, open, or click a link in an e-mail message from us.
We may also work with businesses that use tracking technologies to deliver advertisements on our behalf across the Internet. These companies may collect information about your visits to the Website and your interaction with our advertising and other communications, but no Personal Information is shared with them.
We may combine the NPII collected through cookies, pixel tags, and other analytical tools with other information we may have collected from you. This information may be used to improve the Website, personalize your online experience, help us deliver information to you, determine the effectiveness of advertising, and for other internal business purposes.
We strive to keep your Personal Information private and safe. We take commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and administrative steps to maintain the security of Personal Information collected, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to database servers, as well as employing electronic security systems and password protections that guard against unauthorized access. In addition, it is our policy never to send your credit card number via e-mail. Please note that e-mail is not encrypted and is not considered to be a secure means of transmitting credit card information, so please do not send us your credit card number by e-mail.
Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, the transmission of data over the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Although we will use every reasonable means to ensure the security of the information you transmit through the Website, we cannot guarantee that such information will not be intercepted by third parties. We will, however, prosecute any unauthorized or fraudulent transactions to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Links to Other Websites
While visiting the Website, you may link to websites operated by third parties (the “Linked Sites”) or you may have come to the Website using a link found in another website. In addition, we may use third parties for our payment processing, and when you make a purchase, you will be directed to a third-party payment processor to complete your purchase. This does not mean that we endorse these websites or the goods or services they provide. We do not make any representations or warranties about any Linked Sites, including those of our payment processors. Such other websites are independent of us, and we have no control over (or responsibility for) their information, products, or activities.
"Spoofing" And "Phishing"
A common Internet scam is known as "spoofing" or "phishing." This occurs when you receive an e-mail from what appears to be a legitimate source requesting Personal Information from you. Please be aware that we will not send you any e-mails requesting you to verify credit card information, bank information, or any other Personal Information. If you ever receive an e-mail that appears to be from us requesting such information from you, DO NOT respond to it, and DO NOT click on any links appearing in the e-mail. Instead, please forward the e-mail to us at email@example.com, as we will investigate instances of possible Internet fraud.
Children and Privacy
The Website is not meant for children, and we will not knowingly collect any Personal Information from children under the age of 13 without verified parental consent. We will remove from our files any Personal Information of anyone we discover to be under 13 years of age.
Disclosure for Legal Purposes
You hereby authorize us to disclose any of your Personal Information pursuant to judicial and administrative proceedings and to law enforcement or government agencies if we believe the disclosure is necessary or appropriate. You also authorize us to disclose Personal Information if we believe the disclosure is necessary or appropriate in the event of an investigation of improper or illegal conduct in connection with the Website, such as fraud, misrepresentation, intellectual property infringement, or other activity that may put us at risk for liability.
We do not want you to send to us any confidential or proprietary information through e-mail or otherwise. Any information, materials, suggestions, ideas, or comments sent to us will be considered non-confidential, and by submitting the same to us, you are giving us the absolute right to use, modify, reproduce, transmit, display, and distribute the information for any purpose whatsoever, with no payment or other compensation to you. We will not use your name, however, unless we are required by law to identify the source of the materials, information, suggestions, ideas, or comments, or unless we first obtain your permission.
We may freely assign this Policy or any of our rights or obligations hereunder.
If you have any questions about your privacy or security at the Website, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name and e-mail address in the message. If you do not receive a response from us to any e-mails you send to us within 7 business days, please send us another e-mail as your original e-mail may not have been received. You can also visit us at www.mvpmail.com/contact to reach out to us directly.
By using the Website, you agree that you will not misuse the Website. You further agree that you will not: (a) commit or encourage a criminal offense; (b) transmit or distribute a virus, trojan, worm, logic bomb, or any other material that is malicious, technologically harmful, in breach of an obligation of confidence, or in any way offensive or obscene; (c) hack into any aspect of the Website; (d) corrupt data; (e) cause annoyance to other users; (f) infringe upon the rights of any other person’s proprietary rights; (g) send any unsolicited advertising or promotional material, commonly referred to as “spam”; or (h) affect or attempt to affect the performance or functionality of any computer facilities of or accessed through the Website. Any breach of this provision may constitute a criminal offense, and we will report any such breach to the relevant law enforcement authorities and disclose your identity to them.
Intellectual Property, Software, and Content
The intellectual property rights in the Website, including in all software and content (e.g., photographic images) made available to you on or through the Website, remain the property of us or our licensors and are protected by patent, copyright, and trademark laws and treaties around the world. All such rights are reserved by us and our licensors. You are not permitted to publish, manipulate, distribute, or otherwise reproduce, in any format, any of the content, copies of the content, or derivatives thereof supplied to you or that appear on the Website, and you may not use any such content in connection with any business or commercial enterprise. You waive any and all claims of ownership to any such intellectual property rights and waive any claim to challenge the validity of any such intellectual property rights.
Terms of Sale
Placing an order for products or services means that you are offering to purchase that product or service on and subject to the following terms and conditions of sale:
All purchasers must be at least eighteen (18) years of age and must possess a valid credit or debit card issued by a bank acceptable to us. Placement of an order indicates that you represent and warrant (a) that all of the information that you provide to us is true and accurate; (b) that you are an authorized user of the credit or debit card used to place your order; and (c) that there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of the products or services ordered.
All orders placed on the Website are subject to (a) product or service availability; and (b) our confirmation of the order quantity and price. We retain the right to refuse any orders. All prices advertised are subject to such changes.
Product shipment or service delivery may vary according to availability and is subject to any delays resulting from postal delays or force majeure, for which we will not be responsible.
Errors in product or service details, descriptions, and prices may occur despite efforts to ensure accuracy. If we discover an error in the price of any goods or services that you have ordered, then we will inform you regarding the error, and you will have the option of either reconfirming your order at the correct price or canceling it. If we are unable to contact you, then we will treat the order as canceled.
Upon receipt of your order, we will seek authorization for payment from your card issuer. Your card will be debited upon receipt of that authorization, and funds received will be treated as a deposit against the value of the product or service you have ordered for purchase.
Disclaimer of Liability; Indemnity; Limitation of Liability

Unless expressly stated to the contrary, to the fullest extent permitted by law, we and our suppliers, content providers, and advertisers hereby expressly exclude all conditions, warranties, and other terms that might otherwise be implied by statute, common law, or equity.
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY STATED HEREIN, IN NO EVENT ARE WE LIABLE TO YOU FOR MONETARY DAMAGES IN ANY AMOUNT, WHETHER DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, ECONOMIC, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF PROFITS), WHETHER FOR BREACH OF CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, OR UNDER ANY OTHER CAUSE OF ACTION THAT RESULTS FROM YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE, OUR PRODUCTS OR SERVICES, OR THIS POLICY.
We are not liable for any loss or damage caused by a distributed denial-of-service attack, viruses, or other technologically harmful material that may infect your computer equipment, computer programs, data, or other proprietary material due to your use of the Website or your downloading of any material posted on it or on any Linked Site.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless us and our shareholders, directors, officers, employees, consultants, agents, and affiliates from any and all third-party claims, liability, damages, and costs (including, but not limited to, attorney fees) arising from your use of the Website or your breach of this Policy.
Choice of law; Personal Jurisdiction; Venue; Attorney Fees
This Policy is governed by the laws of the State of Colorado. For any dispute between you and us relating to or arising from your use of the Website, our products or services, or this policy, you agree to be subject to personal jurisdiction in Colorado and that venue will be exclusively in courts in Denver, Colorado. In the event that an action is brought arising out of this Agreement, the prevailing party in such action will be entitled to recover its attorney fees and costs incurred in conjunction therewith.
If any provision of this Policy or the application of this Policy is construed or held to be void, invalid, or unenforceable by the order, decree, or judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction, then the provision so held will be deemed amended to the least extent necessary to be valid and enforceable, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement will not be affected thereby but will remain in full force and effect.
