Cookies: When you use our Services, we ask your browser to store small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters known as a cookie. We use session cookies and persistent cookies. If you have chosen to identify yourself on our Services, we use session cookies containing encrypted information to identify you and facilitate your use of the Services. Session cookies are required to access much of the content and services offered on the Services. After you leave our Services and close your browser, a persistent cookie remains. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your help file directions in your web browser. You may refuse to accept cookies by activating the appropriate setting on your browser. However, if you select this setting, you may be unable to access certain parts of our Services, and some features of the Services may not function properly.
User-Provided Information: When you choose to submit personally identifiable information to our Services (including but not limited to name, address, telephone number, email address, employer and/or job title, tax identification numbers, personal background information, and payroll information) your information is used only for the specific purpose for which it was submitted (for example, to contact you or provide you additional information), unless you consent otherwise or as required by law. In many cases, you choose the amount of information you supply. There may be instances where some of the information that we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. In such cases, if you do not provide mandatory personal information with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity. We may collect personally identifiable information when you:
We maintain the data that you provide us in a reasonably secure database. To best serve you, we may combine this data with data that is publicly available and data that we receive from other reputable sources. We reserve the right to delete information submitted by you without notice.
Log Files: Our servers automatically record certain information (e.g., web request, Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, browser language, URLs, etc) that your web browser sends whenever you visit our Services.
Web Beacons: We may employ Web Beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs) to track how users use the Services. We may also use Web Beacons in our emails to track which emails are opened by recipients.
Analytics: we may use Google Analytics (or similar tools) to help us better serve our customers through improved products, services, and revisions to our services. This collected information may let us know which services and features you are using most within the application, as well as device type and hardware features, country, and language settings.
Mobile Devices: If you use any location-enabled products, you may be sending us location information. We do not store or use this information other than to provide the service you requested. Location-enabled features are opt-in on your mobile device. You can have control over your participation and can turn these services off at any time.
We want to provide you with a positive experience while using our Services. In order to do this, we use the personally identifiable information and other information we collect to:
When someone uses the Services, our systems automatically gather information that allows the Services to communicate with the visitor's computer or device during the visit. We also may use any of the following information: the number of visits to a Service, which parts of a Service visitors select, IP address (the Internet address assigned to your computer or device from your Internet Service Provider), domain type, browser type (e.g., Safari or Internet Explorer), application type (e.g., iOS or Android), action performed, location and date and time of day. We use this information for statistical purposes that help us design and administer the Services.
Some limited information (for example, contact and billing information)collected on our Services is passed on to other Users of our Services.
We do not sell, trade or rent to any unaffiliated third parties your personally identifiable information collected on our Services. We do use the anonymous data and the personally identifiable information collected through our Services for statistical purposes and for improving the Services, as well as for our marketing purposes, as part of our responses to your questions or requests for information and potentially when sending commercial emails to you. We may engage a third party's software or services to assist us with these analyses and activities in which case such information may be shared with them for these purposes (e.g., your email address with our outbound email provider, if any).
We may contract with third party service providers for business processing and for administering health, welfare, and retirement benefits, which requires disclosure of our Users' personally identifiable information. We provide these third party service providers with only the information they need to perform their services. We reserve the right to disclose our Users' personally identifiable information to additional third party service providers that we may use in the future to perform other service functions for us. Our agreements with the third party service providers that we use for these reasons require that they will not share, sell, distribute, or otherwise use personally identifiable information, except to provide us services.
We may contract with other companies to provide certain services, including email distribution, market research and promotions management. We provide these companies with only the information they need to perform their services and work closely with them to ensure that your privacy is respected and protected. This may include sending you newsletters and emails periodically. However, you will have the choice to opt out of receiving newsletters and promotional emails for our products and/or services. These companies are prohibited by contract from using this information for their own marketing purposes or from sharing this information with anyone other than MBO. As applicable, we may release your mailing address to a postal or courier service to deliver information you requested.
From time to time, we may share our mailing list (names and mailing addresses, not email addresses) with business partners whose products or services we believe will be of interest to you and whose privacy practices meet the Direct Marketing Association's privacy standards. If you do not want to receive mailings from our business partners, please contact us.
In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these business transfers, customer information, including personally identifiable information, is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if the Services, MBO or substantially all of our assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, customer information, including personally identifiable information, would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of the Services, MBO or any of our assets may continue to use your personally identifiable information as set forth in this policy.
We will take reasonable measures, which we believe are appropriate to protect your information from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction, and, where possible, will require that any third parties to whom we may transfer your information take comparable steps to protect that security. Although we will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of any visitor information collected, we shall have no liability for disclosure of any visitor information obtained due to errors in transmission or the unauthorized acts of third parties.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. Users should never share their login username, password, or other account information with others, and they should always log out when finished using the Services. Users should inform us immediately if they believe their private login information has been compromised. We are not responsible if Users allow third parties access to their account.
Email is not a secure form of communication. Please do not send us your credit card number, social security number or any other personally identifiable information via email.
We use Google Analytics to help analyze how users use our websites. Google Analytics places a small “cookie” file on your computer so it can recognize your computer if you visit our website in the future. This cookie does not collect personal identifying information; it collects standard Internet log information and site visitor behavior information in an anonymous form.
We have implemented and use features of Google Analytics for Display Advertisers (e.g. Remarketing), which includes obtaining specific visitor cookie data, such as the source, medium, and keyword(s) used to visit our websites. Under the Google Remarketing program our ads can be shown to you when you visit other websites in the Google Display Network or when you search on Google using certain keywords. We use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and other information together to inform, optimize, and provide ads based on a visitor’s past visits to our websites. We may use Remarketing with Google Analytics to display content-specific advertisements to visitors that have previously visited our website when those visitors go to other websites that have the Google Display Network implemented.
Visitors who wish to disable this web measurement tool will still have full access to our site. While the details vary from browser to browser, most modern browsers can be set up to accept, reject or request user intervention when a site asks to set a cookie. Google Analytics uses a cookie that begins with: _utm. If you would like to opt-out, you may use this browser add-on.
We are in compliance with the requirements of COPPA (the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act) and we do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under the age of 13. Our Services, products and services are all directed to people who are at least 13 years old. Since information regarding children under the age of 13 is not collected, we do not knowingly distribute personal information regarding children under the age of 13.
