This information is aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the Site, pages viewed, etc. MAK Grills utilizes this information (“behavior profiles”) to measure the use of our Site and to improve the content we offer.

We will not sell, share or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.

Like many websites, we use “cookies” to enable us to remember your password, to help us identify the portions of our Site that may be the most relevant for your needs, and to help us identify other products or services that may be of interest to you or others. A cookie is a small piece of information that a website can store on your web browser and then retrieve at a later time.

To help us determine whether you have received an email from us, and to help us make emails more useful, we may receive a confirmation that you have opened an email from us. If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our Site, we ask them for the referring party’s name and email address. MAK Grills will automatically send the referrer party and invite them to visit the site. MAK Grills stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email. The referrer may contact MAK Grills to request the removal of this information from our database.
In addition, we also send user periodical and site and service monthly updates. Members are not able to unsubscribe from service announcements that contain important information about the service.

You may opt-out of receiving emails from us if you choose.
