Protecting consumer privacy is very important to us. Our Online Privacy Statement is available to inform you about our collection and use of personal information so that you can make informed choices about how your own information is collected and used. This Online Privacy Statement reflects the Comsen Powerheads online policy covering personal information collected at this website.
The Comsen team believe that information used responsibly benefits our clients. Comsen strives to better serve our customers by offering goods and services that we believe fit their needs and interests. When identifying an opportunity, Comsen may use consumer information it has collected in an effort to identify consumers who may be interested in that opportunity. For many years, customers have relied on Comsen (or Marine Products International – MPI) for a safe and reliable service. The relationships we have developed through the years have been established based on mutual trust. Each day we and employees and agents strive to reinforce our commitment to our clients and consumers. Central to that commitment is ensuring that we abide by a set of privacy policies, which are outlined below. These policies guide us in the collection and use of information as well as employee responsibilities in protecting your privacy. We use personal information about customers only in a manner consistent with these policies.

DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
