In order to better provide you with numerous products and
services, We collect two types of information about its visitors: Personally

Our primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide you

|What information does
meritline.com collect from you?
This refers to information that does not by itself identify
a specific individual. We gather certain information about you based upon
where you shop on our site in several ways. This information is compiled
and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information
may include the Web site's Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that you just
came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your
Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents
and other resources on the World Wide Web. An IP address is an identifier
for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol
("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks like the web
use the TCPA/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address
of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is
automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web,
allowing web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require
IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration,
to gather broad demographic information, to enable ads to be served on
our site, to report Non-Personally Identifiable Information to our advertisers,
and to monitor the level of activity on our site. We collect information
from visitors to our site regarding the URLs they came from, their IP
addresses, domain types (e.g., .com or .org), the browser type used to
come to the site, the country, state and telephone area code where their
servers are located, the pages of our site that visitors viewed during
their visit, and any search terms entered on our site.

will collect and maintain your name, e-mail address, billing address,
shipping address, telephone number, product selections, credit card or
other payment information, order number, referring URL, IP address and
a password. We collect this, and other information, as disclosed in this
Policy, in order to fill your order, to communicate with you about your
order and to send you promotional materials. Before confirming your order,
you will have the opportunity to review the product order form and make
changes and additions to the information it contains and these changes
will be automatically kept for future use.

our customers to voluntarily complete surveys, which may be collected
by an independent third party. Individual survey answers are confidential,
although Non-Personally Identifiable Information is collected and disclosed
to third parties. If you do not wish to participate in a survey, simply
decline to participate when asked.

for the limited purposes of processing orders, keeping you informed about

fill your order, deliver your order, and provide customer service.. For
example, we must release your credit card information to the card-issuing
bank to confirm payment; and release your address and telephone information
to the delivery service to deliver products that you ordered.
We may release account information when we believe that
such release is reasonably necessary to enforce or apply our Terms and
Conditions or to protect the rights, property, and safety of meritline.com,
