Collection of Your Personal Information
When a user visits our website, we collect information about the visit that does not identify the user personally. We track information such as the domain from which the user is visiting and the user’s browser type. We also collect specific information regarding the user’s session on our website. This includes items such as the date and time of the visit and the pages viewed.
Sometimes we ask a user to voluntarily provide personally identifiable information (PII). This information generally includes, but is not limited to, name, e-mail address, home address, name, work address, and telephone number. We request this information when the user requests one of the following:
- To register to attend an on-line seminar or demonstration
- To receive specific information from us such as a whitepaper or case study
- To sign up for a mailing list
- To correspond with us
- Or any other such activity that we deem necessary
This information is used by MCC for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the MCC website. We do not intentionally collect information from children under the age of 18.
How is the information used?
Non-personally identifiable information (non-PII) is collected to allow us to analyze how our website is used and to improve the content and service the website provides.
Personally identifiable information is collected for analysis to improve the content of the website and the services we provide the user.
MCC owns the collected information and will not sell, trade, or rent the information to others. We may use the information to continue contact with the user. This may include contact such as follow-up calls, e-mail correspondence, or mail correspondence to follow-up on the contact or to provide marketing information about promotions, new services, or important website changes. MCC may share this information with its business partners for the specific purpose of a promotion or service offering.
MCC is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the MCC and MCC family of websites. MCC encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from MCC so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information.
Are “Cookies” used on the website?
The MCC website use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize MCC pages, or register with MCC’s site or services, a cookie helps MCC to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same MCC website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the MCC features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the MCC services or websites you visit.
How is personally identifiable information safeguarded?
MCC utilizes industry standard methods and mechanisms such as firewalls, intrusion monitoring, and passwords to protect electronic information. Multiple physical security methods such as locking devices and 24 hour premise monitoring are also employed. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. Finally, access to PII is limited to a small number of personnel and on a need-to-know basis.
How to opt out of correspondence
Based on the information a user has provided, MCC may send e-mail correspondence to the user. Each correspondence will contain an easy means to opt out of further correspondence.
Changes to this Statement
MCC will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. MCC encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how MCC is protecting your information.
MCC welcomes your comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe that MCC has not adhered to this Statement, please contact MCC through our contact page. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and remedy the problem.
