The Metro Store Site (“This Website”) operates themetrostore.com and may operate other websites. It is This Website’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, This Website 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. This Website’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how This Website’s visitors use its website. From time to time, This Website may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
This Website also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on themetrostore.com blogs/sites. This Website only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to This Website’s websites choose to interact with This Website in ways that require This Website to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that This Website gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at themetrostore.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with This Website are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, This Website collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with This Website. This Website 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.
Personal data is captured when someone submits a contact form. I keep contact form submissions for a week for customer service purposes, but I do not use the information submitted through contact form for marketing purposes.

This Website takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
