2. HOW DOES M2K USE INFORMATION?

M2K also uses personally identifiable information to notify you of changes to M2K’s websites, to provide you with entertainment news, e-mail offers, and project detail to let you know about the products and services that may be of interest to you.
M2K also combines anonymous usage information collected from your visit to an M2K website with that of other users to determine which features and areas of the website are most popular. By collecting and analyzing this data, M2K can improve the websites. This aggregated information does not contain information personally associated with you.
M2K may also update and supplement personally identifiable information collected from you with other information that we obtain from third parties or from our subsidiaries and affiliates. If we associate information obtained from our affiliates and subsidiaries or third parties with personally identifiable information collected under this policy we will treat the acquired information like information we have collected ourselves.
3. DOES M2K SHARE OR TRANSFER THE INFORMATION I PROVIDE?
Sharing among the M2K Family of Companies.
We may combine personally identifiable information collected by an M2K affiliate or subsidiary with personally identifiable information we have collected, and we may share your personally identifiable information with other M2K subsidiaries or affiliates.
Sharing with Third Parties.
M2K shares aggregated information with its third party service providers to assist M2K with collecting demographic information and improving its websites. M2K shares aggregated information with potential advertisers, contractors, investors and other third parties in connection with the sale of M2K’s products and services.
In future, if M2K chooses to rent or sell your personally identifiable information to third parties, M2K will first gain your consent. If you expressly opt-in to receiving marketing communications from M2K on behalf of third parties concerning products or services, M2K will share the necessary portion of your personally identifiable information with those third parties for that limited purpose.
M2K uses third parties to assist it in providing services, fulfilling orders and information requests, to improve your experience on M2K’s websites and for other business purposes. M2K will share your personally identifiable information with these third parties for these purposes; however, these third parties will not contact you directly.
Moreover, if you are a member of a social network service, such as Facebook, MySpace, or similar website where you have authorized them to gather information about your online behavior on M2K’s website including participation in any behavioral reporting program that they may operate on or off of their own site (i.e., Facebook etc.), M2K may share information regarding your activities on an M2K website with those third parties under and as authorized by you, and they may associate that information with personally identifiable information they already have about you (such as your Face book Profile) and use it to improve their site or services or for other purposes.
Disclosure Required by Law.
From time to time, M2K may be required to provide your personally identifiable information in response to a court order, government investigation, or as otherwise required by law. We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful. We also may share certain personally identifiable information when we believe that such sharing is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property, and safety of others and ourselves.
Disclosure as a part of a Business Transaction.
M2K may also disclose personally identifiable information to third parties in relation to planned or potential corporate sales, mergers, reorganizations, dissolutions or similar events. As a part of any such transaction, M2K will treat your information as an asset and transfer it to the purchaser.
Transfer of Information.
4. HOW DOES M2K KEEP MY PERSONAL INFORMATION SECURE?
We use several encryption methods, such as Secure Sockets Layer for the transmission of data, and other measures to ensure that the personally identifiable information you submit to M2K through your use of an M2K website is secure. We take reasonable measures to ensure that your information remains reliable, accurate, complete and current. We also take physical, electronic and managerial steps to maintain the security and accuracy of information we collect, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers, as well as using electronic security systems and password protections that guard against unauthorized access by other visitors or third parties.
When you visit M2K’s websites, our web servers automatically collect anonymous information that describes how our visitors use and navigate our website. This information includes the number and frequency of visitors to each web page and the length of their stays, as well as the anonymous information that your web browser automatically sends to us, such as browser type, referrer data that identifies the web page visited before and after your visit to our website, and IP addresses. We also may determine what technology is available through your browser to serve you the most appropriate version of a web page. For example, we may determine that you have installed a version of Flash, and we will then send to you the appropriate Flash version of the web page rather than an HTML page.
An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer or network when you are on the Internet. When visitors request pages from our website, our servers log the visitor’s IP address. We or our service providers may also serve advertisements based upon the geographic location of your IP address.
Clear GIFs or pixels are invisible files on web pages that you visit. When you visit a page on M2K’s website that contains a clear GIF, the clear GIF communicates with your computer to determine, among other things, whether you have been to that page before or viewed a particular advertisement. We or our third party advertising providers may use clear GIF to track usage of M2K websites.
Where authorized by law and as permitted by FTC guidelines, M2K may use web beacons, other monitoring technologies and third party service providers who may gather data for purposes of advertising or reporting website traffic and statistics.
6. CAN OTHER PARTIES OBTAIN INFORMATION FROM ME WHEN I VISIT AN M2K WEBSITE?
We may allow third parties to deliver advertisements on our websites. Our websites may also contain links to websites that are owned and operated by third parties. You should be aware that when you click on these third-party advertisements or links, you may deploy cookies or web beacons, which third parties may use to identify some of your preferences or to recognize you if you have previously been to their website or otherwise had contact with them. Certain activities on our websites are sponsored by third parties and you will be asked to submit personally identifiable information to complete your transaction. We do not control how these third parties use the information they collect from you, whether collected from the delivery of advertisements to you, your use of links or your purchase of products or other voluntary submissions of information. We have no responsibility (and disclaim any representations, warranties or responsibility) for these third-party advertisements and websites, including, without limitation, their content and privacy policies. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of the advertisers and websites to learn how they may collect and use information about you.
If you voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information in a public area of an M2K website, such as a review page, blog or message board, third parties may collect this information and use it to send you unsolicited marketing communications, messages or for other purposes. You disclose personally identifiable information in public areas of the M2K websites at your own risk.
