Marine Parts Express will not use your personal information other than for the purpose for which it was submitted without your consent. We use personal information to process orders and contact our customers periodically. We also offer a newsletter which you may opt out of at any time by sending an e-mail request to email@example.com.
We will also release personal information to appropriate governmental authorities as follows: if release is required by law (for example by subpoena or pursuant to the Patriot Act), by regulation, or when requested by a government agency conducting any investigation or proceeding; if our records indicate a company may be engaged in fraudulent activity or other deceptive practices that a governmental agency should be made aware of; or if your communication suggests possible harm to others. We also cooperate with credit card companies who investigate fraud claims.
If your personal information changes, please email us with the new information. We will work to make the change as quickly as possible.
