Information Collection Policy
MCA does not disclose the personal information of our Website visitors to third parties for direct marketing purposes for those Website users who have exercised the option to prevent that information from being provided to third parties for such purposes. However, unless you indicate to us that you do not permit your personal information to be used or shared for promotional or marketing purposes, we may provide, rent and sell lists containing your name, company, title, address, phone number and/or email address to third parties and our affiliates for their direct and indirect marketing purposes, and we may use your personal information for the same purposes. When mailing lists are provided to third parties, we require them to comply with all applicable laws and prohibit further distribution of the lists to other parties. If you do not want your personal information used by MCA or shared with third parties for promotional or marketing purposes, you may opt out of having this information shared or used for such purposes by some or all parties. In such case, please refer to the policies under Opting Out.
MCA also reserves the right to compile, save, use within the scope of our activities, and analyze any and all data (contact and personal data, use history, etc.) that is collected from you through the Website. We use the personal information that you provide to us for our internal purposes such as responding to your inquiries, conducting internal analyses, and processing event registrations or product orders. We also use your personal information to communicate with you, such as, for example, to provide you with newsletters, press releases, membership information, or information relating to programs or grassroots activities that may be of interest to you.
We may also collect and group demographic and preferences information, responses to surveys and other personal information that we collect from you into an aggregate, non-personally identifiable form for disclosure to our existing or potential business partners, affiliates, sponsors or other third parties. This compiled data will in no way personally identify you or any other visitors to the Website.
We may also on occasion collect general, non-personal, statistical information about the use of the Website, such as how many visitors are going to which pages, how long visitors stay on those pages, and which links are clicked. This information is collected through the use of "cookies" and other tracking technologies, which are discussed in greater detail below in the section on cookies. This information is collected to determine which areas of the Website are most utilized and to find ways to improve the website. As with other aggregated data, we may disclose such data to our existing or potential business partners, affiliates, sponsors or other third parties, but this compiled data will in no way personally identify you or any other visitors to the Website.
When you submit personal information to us through the Forms on this Website, you will be given an opportunity to opt out at the time of submitting your personal information to us. Unless you opt out, your information may be added to our lists that receive promotional and marketing communications from MCA and MCA’s partners and other third parties.
If you initially elect not to opt out and later decide that you would like to opt out, you should send an email with “Request to Opt Out” in the subject line, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep in mind that although MCA strives to update our mailing list database as frequently as possible, it may take up to ten days to process email requests.
