Your privacy is critically important to us. At Maple Grove Firearms we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.

Maple Grove Firearms (“MGF”) operates maplegrovefirearms.com.  It is MGF’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, MGF 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. MGF’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how MGF’s visitors use its website. From time to time, MGF may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

MGF may also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on maplegrovefirearms.com. MGF only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to MGF’s websites choose to interact with MGF in ways that require MGF to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that MGF gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with MGF – by purchasing products and/or services are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, MGF collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with MGF. MGF does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

MGF may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, MGF may monitor the most popular blog posts. MGF may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, MGF does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

MGF 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 MGF’s behalf or to provide services available at MGF’s 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 MGF’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. MGF 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, MGF discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when MGF believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of MGF, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an MGF website and have supplied your email address, MGF 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 MGF and our products and services. MGF takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

MGF visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using MGF’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of MGF’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If MGF, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that MGF goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of MGF may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
