Material Handling Network has adopted a set of information management guidelines which serve as the basis for our customer and advertiser relationships. These guidelines have been developed with the recognition that Electronic technologies are rapidly evolving, and that underlying business models may still not be established. Accordingly, guidelines are subject to change. Any such changes will be posted on this page. If the changes represent a material departure from our current practices with respect to the use of personal information, the changes will be posted on this page thirty days prior to taking effect and registered users will be notified via e-mail. Material Handling Network is not responsible for the content or the privacy policies of web sites to which it may link.

What does Material Handling Network do with the information it gathers/tracks?
Statistical Analysis and Banner Advertising: Material Handling Network may perform statistical analyses of user behavior in order to measure interest in the various areas of our site (for product development purposes) and to inform advertisers as to how many consumers have seen or "clicked" their advertising banners. In statistical analyses and banner advertisement targeting, we will disclose information to third parties only in aggregate form. Personal information about you as an individual subscriber will not be provided to any third party without your consent.
E-mail: Using the e-mail addresses provided at registration, Material Handling Network periodically sends promotional e-mail to its subscribers about services offered by Material Handling Network and its advertisers. Material Handling Network may also contact you regarding account status, changes to the subscriber agreement, and to confirm registration. At no time does Material Handling Network share the e-mail addresses or other personal data of registered users with third parties, except under the circumstances described in Compliance with Legal Process below.
We use e-mail links located throughout the site to allow you to contact us directly with any questions or comments you may have. We will use your e-mail address to respond directly to these questions or comments.
Data Security: To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures in a good-faith effort to protect the information we collect online. Due to fast paced changes in technology, however, Material Handling Network is unable to guarantee security. You should notify us immediately if you have reason to believe there has been a breach in security.
