Information We Collect
We collect information about you so we can continue to provide and improve our Services to you and other users of the Site. There may be times (such as when you purchase or order a product, register to receive a newsletter, contact customer service, or participate in a questionnaire, etc.) when we ask you to provide certain contact information about yourself. The information collected may include items such as your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, facsimile number, credit card information, financial institution and bank account information, business size, industry type, as well as other information that may or may not specifically identify you. The information collected on the Site will be stored at servers, computers, or other media located within the United States.
We may obtain personal and non-personal information about you from third-party sources. This information may be utilized, analyzed, and/or compared with information that we have collected from you or that you have submitted to the Site. Such third parties may include but are not limited to Google. If 48 Barriers obtains information from third-party sources, 48 Barriers takes commercially reasonable measures to ensure the third-parties lawfully obtained and provided the information to us. If the third-parties unlawfully obtained and/or provided the information to us despite our reasonable measures to ensure the third-parties complied with all legal requirements in obtaining and providing the information to us, you understand, agree, and acknowledge that your sole legal remedy is against the third party that engaged in the unlawful activity and that you will not assert any cause of action, claim or demand against us.

See the Opt-Out Provisions and Updating Your Information section below for applicable contact information and directions.

We will not sell any information you submit to us to any third party without prior written notice to you and an opportunity for you to opt-out of such sale, provided, however, that we are permitted to sell your information if all or substantially all of our assets are sold as part of a merger or acquisition transaction. However, you agree that we are able to sell aggregated and/or deidentified information that we may collect related to you and your use of the Site.
Legal Process and Investigation Issues
From time to time, 48 Barriers may be required to respond to a subpoena, a court order or similar investigative demand from law enforcement, a government agency, or a private litigant. 48 Barriers reserves all rights to defend, within its sole discretion, against such legal requests, demands, and claims. For instance, 48 Barriers may raise or waive legal objections or rights. 48 Barriers also reserves the right to disclose your information, as allowed by applicable law, when we believe it is reasonably appropriate based on the situation. Such disclosure may occur, but is not limited to, disclosing your information in connection with efforts to: (i) investigate, prevent, or commence other actions regarding suspected illegal activity or other wrongdoing; (ii) protect or defend the rights, property or safety of our company, our users, our employees; or others; (iii) comply with applicable law or cooperate with law enforcement; or (iv) enforce the TOU or other agreements or policies related to the Site or the Services.
Notice about Social Security Numbers
We do not collect social security numbers of customers or other users, and you should not provide such information to 48 Barriers. Nonetheless, if 48 Barriers comes into possession of users’ social security numbers or collects such information in the future, the information will be treated confidentially and not shared with third-parties unless allowed by law. Additionally, 48 Barriers will take reasonable steps to limit the access to such social security numbers and take legally required steps to secure the transmission of the data containing such social security numbers.
Third Party Service Providers
The Site may contain links to other websites. 48 Barriers disclaims any responsibility for the privacy practices of third-parties that may have links to or from our Site, or any framed content on our Site. We encourage you to review the privacy policies/statements of every website that you visit that collects personally identifiable information.
DO NOT TRACK REQUESTS
In some states, users may be entitled to know how we respond to “Do Not Track” browser settings. There is little consensus in the industry about what “Do Not Track” means; however, we recognize “Do Not Track” signals as an opt-out for the sharing of your data with third parties. We take good faith efforts to comply with any “Do Not Track” request; however, you may still need to contact any third-party companies (including those who may have cookies or beacons on the Site) to direct them to not share your data with third parties. To learn more or opt-out from data collection by third-party companies you can visit: Network Advertising Initiative or Your Ad Choices.
Opt-Out Provisions and Updating Your Information
We value your privacy and provide you with the option to “opt-out” of having your information used for purposes not directly related to the Site. If you wish to change your opt-out preference, you can click on the “unsubscribe” link in email communications, or you can opt-out by contacting us by phone at 866-755-3325 or by mail at Multi Distributing LLC d/b/a 48 Barriers, Attn: Privacy Officer, 3859 S Cox Rd, Springfield, MO 65807. Your request will generally be responded to within thirty (30) days, or earlier if required by applicable law. Please note that changing your opt-out preference will only affect future activities or communications from us. In other words, if we already provided your information to a third party before you changed your opt-out preferences, you will need to contact the third party directly. To opt-out of communications from our third party business partners, if any, please contact them directly.
How We Retain and Protect Information
We may store your information for more than one (1) year from the time of initial submission, as well as automated personal information we collect about you, unless longer is required by applicable law.
We take reasonable security measures to protect users’ information against unauthorized access, loss, alteration, or destruction. These measures include Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software encryption and physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal information, and the usage of reputable third-party vendors. Despite these reasonable measures, we cannot guarantee our security measures are impenetrable. Therefore, although we take reasonable steps to secure your information, we cannot and do not promise or warrant that your information will always remain secure.
