Sharing Your Information

Your personally identifiable information will not be rented or sold to any third party. Koblenz US may share your personal information as follows:

Your Choices about Receiving E-mail

  •       We will give you an opportunity to let us know your preference regarding the receiving of promotional e-mail when you provide us with your personal information or when we send you an e-mail. Promotional e-mail that you receive from Koblenz US or its affiliates will tell you how to decline to receive future promotional e-mails.

  •       Finally, Koblenz US may send you an e-mail about your orders or your account. These are transactional in nature—rather than promotional—and do not contain unsubscribe capability as we need to communicate to fulfill our business obligation with you.
