Welcome to GriffinMachinery! If you visit our shop it means that you automatically accept all these terms and conditions. Please carefully read all information concerning our guidelines, terms, and agreements.
It is very important to care about the information because we are living in an informational society and you can’t underestimate the way information will be used and shared.
Trust is the cornerstone of friendship and we appreciate your decision to choose our store. We are giving you full access to different types of information concerning your account.
Additionally please note that our website contains numerous trademarks that can belong both to our company and third-party companies.
Using logos, icons, and service names are prohibited in any manner that is likely to cause confusion among our customers and will be considered a violation of copyright law.
We reserve the right to make changes to these terms and conditions at any time without prior notifications.
The information we receive, and how we use it, depends on what you do when visiting our website. We collect and use your non-personal information (information that is not identifiable to you personally) differently than your personal information.

You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but some parts of our website may not work properly for you if you do so. We will not allow third parties other than those companies that we hire to perform services or functions on our behalf to place cookies on our website.

We also will use non-personal information for other business purposes. For example, we may use non-personal information or aggregate non-personal information to:
- create reports for internal use to develop programs, products, services, or content
- customize the information or services that are of interest to you
- Share it with or sell it to third parties
