Information sharing and disclosure
MerchantRMS values your business and strives to protect your privacy. MerchantRMS will not trade, sell or otherwise relinquish your information except where:

- The information is transferred between MerchantRMS sister or partner companies.
We provide the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from MerchantRMS at the point where we request information about you and in each instance when you receive material from us. If you have difficulty in opting-out in this manner, please contact us and provide your name, e-mail address and subscription you wish to cancel.

We encourage our users to be aware when leaving MerchantRMS web sites and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information.
