This policy covers how McLEOD treats personal information that it collects and receives. “Personal information” is information like your name, address, email address, or phone number that is not otherwise publicly available.
This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that McLEOD does not own or control or to people that McLEOD does not employ or manage.
II. INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
McLEOD gathers personally identifiable information about users of the Site through the registration process and other means, such as user submissions and any web sites accessible through our Site. We use this personal information primarily to provide a customized experience as you use our Site and, generally, do not share this information with third parties except as set forth herein. However, we may disclose personal information collected if we have received your permission beforehand or in very special circumstances, such as when we believe that such disclosure is required by law or other special cases described below.
B. Personal Information
1. Registration: When you register to receive information or products from the Site, you will be asked to provide certain personal information when you sign up including name, address, telephone number, payment information, and email address. The personal information collected from Members during the registration process is used to manage each Member’s account (such as for billing purposes). This information is not shared with third parties, unless specifically stated otherwise or in special circumstances. However, in instances where McLEOD and a partner jointly promote the Site, McLEOD may provide the partner certain personal information, such as the name, address, and username of persons who subscribed to the Site or as a result of the joint promotion for the sole purpose of allowing us and the partner to assess the results of the promotion. In this instance, personal information may not be used by the partner for any other purpose. McLEOD may also generate non-identifying and aggregate profiles from personal information Members provide during registration (such as the total number, but not the names, of Members). As explained in more detail below, we may use this aggregated and non-identifying information to sell advertisements that appear on the Site.
2. Online Shopping: On the Site, you can purchase products, services or register to receive materials, such as a catalog or new product and service updates. In many cases, whether Member or non-registered user of the Site (“Visitor”), you may be asked to provide contact information, such as your name, address, email address, phone number, and credit/debit card information. If you complete an order for someone else, such as an online gift order sent directly to a recipient, you may be asked to provide information about the recipient, such as the recipient’s name, address, and phone number. McLEOD has no control over the “third parties” use of any personal information you provide when placing such an order. Please exercise care when doing so.
If you order products directly from McLEOD, we will use the personal information you provide only to process that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
3. Online Advertisements: McLEOD displays our online advertisements. We share aggregated and non-identifying information about our Visitors and Members collected through the registration process as well as through online surveys and promotions with these advertisers. Additionally, in some instances, we use this aggregated and non-identifying information to deliver tailored advertisements. For instance, an advertiser tells us the audience they want to reach (for example, females between 25 and 35 years of age) and provides us an advertisement tailored to the audience. Based upon the aggregated and non-identifying information we have collected, we may then display the advertisement to the intended audience. McLEOD does not share personal information about its Visitors or Members with these advertisers.
4. Responses to Email Inquiries: When Visitors or Members send email inquiries to MCLEOD, the return email address is used to answer the email inquiry we receive. McLEOD does not use the return email address for any other purpose and does not share the return email address with any third party.
5. Special Cases: It is McLEOD’s policy not to use or share the personal information about Visitors of Members in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses. However, McLEOD may disclose personal information about Visitors or Members, or information regarding your use of the Site or Web sites accessible through our Site, for any reason if, in our sole discretion, we believe that it is reasonable to do so, including: to satisfy laws, such as the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, regulations, or governmental or legal requests for such information; to disclose information that is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Terms & Conditions or other user policies; to operate the Site properly; or to protect McLEOD and our Members.
C. Non-Personal Information & Cookies
McLEOD also gathers non-personal information through standard tracking mechanisms on McLEOD internet servers. For example, McLEOD employs “cookies” on various parts of the Site. Cookies are information that the Site transfers to the user's hard drive to facilitate record keeping and tracking a user's preferences. Non-personal information is primarily collected in order to improve the functionality and user's enjoyment of the Site, to tailor the Site to your individual preferences, and to make using the Site simpler and more enjoyable. The information that is typically tracked includes the type of internet browser and operating system being used by a user, and the user’s internet service provider.
The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with users is of the utmost concern to McLEOD. Unfortunately no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while McLEOD strives to protect users’ personal information, McLEOD cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information users transmit to the Site, and users do so at their own risk.
Your account information is protected by the password you use to access your online account. If you use this Site, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your computer, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password.
Personal information that is maintained in our offices or stores is subject to physical, administrative, and technical controls as well. Hard copies of private information are maintained in locked locations or cabinets with similar restrictions for electronic storage of private information. When disposed of, the information is shredded, destroyed, erased, or otherwise made unreadable.
III. COMMITMENT TO CHILDREN'S PRIVACY
Protecting children’s privacy is especially important to us. It is our policy to not knowingly solicit or exchange information with children under the age of 13 or otherwise contact children for any purpose. While we make every effort to ensure that the Site is fun and age-appropriate for our younger audience, we believe that there is no substitute for proper parental supervision. For further information about tips, tools, age-appropriate or kid-friendly web sites and how to report online trouble, please visit www.getnetwise.com.
It is our policy to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and all other applicable laws. Therefore, children under the age of 13 are not permitted to register for the Site. Children under 13 may use the Site, but should do so only with parental supervision, especially when it relates to the disclosure of personal information about children. Although McLEOD will do what it can to screen information from children under the age of 13 on the Site, McLEOD has no way to guarantee that a registrant or user is under 13. Therefore, to the maximum extent permitted by law, McLEOD is not responsible for a child’s use of the Site or the personal information supplied by a child on the Site.
IV. USER-INITIATED COMMUNICATION
From time to time, portions of the Site may enable you to send email to us or to third parties and to participate in public bulletin boards and discussion groups (hosted by us or one or more of our service providers). All postings to public bulletin boards and discussion groups become our property. Whenever you choose to initiate these kinds of communications with us, or anyone else, you may expect to be contacted in return.
Also, remember that our bulletin boards and discussion groups are open to the public, and therefore, your postings can be seen by anyone and are not protected by us or any other entity. Please use your own discretion when deciding what to post publicly, and whom to contact. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to edit or delete inappropriate postings from our bulletin boards and discussion groups; provided, however, the reservation of this right shall not, under any circumstances, obligate us to conduct such editing or deletions.
McLEOD discussion boards are a free service to enable you to share comments about products and services available on our site. This service is available only to individuals older than 13 years of age who have purchased items from the Site and are in good standing with McLEOD. If you use the Site discussion boards, you are certifying that you are old enough to participate in the boards.

II. Memberships & Orders
Please note that there may be certain memberships and/or orders that we are unable to accept and must cancel.

We will contact you if all or any portion of your membership or order is canceled or if additional information is required. If your order is canceled after your credit card has been charged, we will issue a credit to your credit card in the amount of the charge. While McLEOD strives to provide accurate product and pricing information, pricing or typographical errors may occur. McLEOD cannot confirm that the information and/or pricing as typographical errors may occur. McLEOD cannot confirm the price of an item until after you order. In the event that an item is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information due to an error in pricing or product information, McLEOD shall have the right, at its sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any orders placed for that item. In the event that an item is mispriced, McLEOD may, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation. Prices and availability are subject to change without notice.

McLeod Racing LLC (McLeod) is adopting a comprehensive MAP policy for its products. While McLeod currently has an existing MAP pricing policy in place, this is the first edition of its policy in written form. This policy is dated April 25, 2013 with an effective date of June 1, 2013.
1. PURPOSE. McLeod is instituting this MAP policy in an effort to protect the McLeod brand name from degradation due to low advertised prices. McLeod is a well-respected brand-name in the automotive field – specifically within the driveline segment – and has made it a goal to nurture its brand-name and protect against anything that may erode same. Declining advertised pricing creates the likelihood that McLeod’s brand will be viewed in a negative light as an inferior or cheap product. This policy is aimed at preventing the aforementioned from occurring.
a) MAP Pricing is defined in the McLeod PIES Price Sheet as Retail MAP. McLeod MAP pricing is also defined as Retail MAP in our electronic PIES data feeds. No other price files or data feeds should be used to determine MAP.
b) Advertising is defined under this policy as any form of commerce in which a McLeod product is listed at a particular price, including but not limited to: internet advertising (including not only an advertised price at an e-commerce store but also any and all social media postings), print advertising (catalog, brochure, letter), e-mail, or online auction;
c) All customers of McLeod agree not to advertise McLeod products below the set MAP price determined by McLeod;
1600 Sierra Madre Circle
Placentia, CA 92870 USA
a. It is considered a violation of this policy to indicate in advertising that a lower price is available by contacting McLeod’s customers;
b. This MAP policy includes all current and future McLeod Part numbers;
d) MAP prices for each of the aforementioned product numbers will be found in updated McLeod pricing lists or by request to McLeod.
a) On a limited basis, a customer may, at the sole discretion of McLeod and requiring prior approval, list one of the aforementioned McLeod items for sale below MAP for a limited time. A sale may not be deeper than 8% of MAP (eg: if MAP is set at $100, the item may not be advertised for sale for less than $92) nor will a sale run for more than 31 calendar days;
b) Limited social media announcements regarding a sale of a MAP protected item may occur in conjunction with McLeod’s “Dealer of the Race” program or other “special” program only in conjunction with and approved by McLeod.
4. VIOLATIONS. In the event that a customer of McLeod violates the MAP price, McLeod will make all reasonable attempts to notify said customer of its violation. If the MAP violation is not corrected in an expedient manner, McLeod shall take the following remedial steps to protect its brand:
a) 1st violation – written warning with 24 hours given to correct the MAP violation;
b) 2nd violation – suspension of a customer’s account and freezing of any product
shipments to customer until the violation is corrected;
c) 3rd violation – customer forfeiture of any and all promotional funding;
d) 4th violation – termination of a customer’s account;
5. DISCLAIMER. This MAP policy is in no way attempting to control the price that a customer actually sells one of the aforementioned products for. This policy is strictly created to prevent advertising of McLeod products below a certain threshold so as to maintain brand credibility. Nothing in this policy should be construed as dictating the final sale price of any item under this policy.
