The following are some examples of when SMR may require
that you provide personally identifiable information:
complete an online order for a product or service (if you do not wish to complete
an online order form, we will always provide an option for you to complete an order
by calling a toll free phone number).
enter an online contest or sweepstakes (if you do not wish to complete an online contest
or sweepstakes form, we will always provide an option for you to enter by mailing
a 3 x 5 card to a specific address).
request more information about new or current SMR products or services.
If you do not want your personally identifiable information
collected, please do not submit it to us. If you have already submitted this information
and would like for us to remove it from our records, please contact us at the email
address listed at the bottom of this Statement. We will use reasonable efforts to
delete your information from our existing files.
When you do provide us with personally identifiable

how we can improve our products and services for all customers.
may use that information to contact you with new promotions and announcements if you
have previously provided your permission and if the promotions and announcements are
in your interest.

SMR will not sell personally identifiable information
to third parties, unless we tell you we are going to do so at the time we collect
your personally identifiable information. We may share information with business partners.
We are committed to giving you the choice of whether or not we use your information
