When you visit our websites, you may provide us with two types of information: (a) personal information you knowingly and voluntarily choose to disclose, and (b) information that we automatically collect as you browse our websites. We collect and store any information you voluntarily enter on our websites. The following information is collected when you visit our websites:
Our membership application form requires you to give us your contact information. We use your contact information to share information about MMI. Your contact information is also used to contact you when necessary. Financial information that is collected is used to bill you for events, products and services.
- Registration and Order Forms
If you register for an event, purchase curriculum or request information, we will ask you to provide contact information. We collect data necessary to complete the transaction, which may include contact information, address, email address, telephone number and a credit card number.
On our websites, you have an opportunity to communicate with us by email. You may also choose to provide your email address to receive communications from us or third parties.
- Automatically Collected Information and Cookies
When you browse our websites, you and your web browser may transmit information that we automatically collect. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer), the webpages you visit and the time of your visit, and other click-stream data. This information may be combined with other personal information you voluntarily provide. The only other type of information automatically provided to us is the type of computer, operating system and browser you are using. This information is provided by your browser, which we use to improve the performance of our websites and make it more compatible with the technology used by the visitors to these websites. We may also place small data files, called "cookies", in the browser file of your computer's hard drive. These cookies automatically identify your browser to our server whenever you interact with these websites. We use the cookies to record website statistics. Most browsers automatically accept the cookies, but you usually can change your browser setting to prevent the acceptance of cookies. Certain webpages may not function properly if you choose not to accept cookies.
USE OF INFORMATION
We use your personal information to communicate with you if and when necessary in connection with your use of MMI websites, to respond to your questions, or to send you material and information you request. We may also use your information to: personalize your user experience and to allow us to deliver the type of content and product information in which you are most interested; consider your suggestions; possibly respond directly to you for clarification; process your request for materials or information; try to answer any questions you may have; and provide you with email messages and other information regarding upcoming events, new services and general information about our services and products. You may elect not to receive these communications, either when you initially register at these websites, or at any time thereafter. We may also use collected information in order to help diagnose problems with these websites. We may use all information we collect to analyze statistical use patterns and demographic data (basically, where our visitors come from and what demographic characteristics they have) and to improve user experiences. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our servers, and to administer these websites. Your IP address is used to help identify you and your shopping cart and to gather broad demographic information. We may also prepare and keep statistical records and other data about you and other users of these websites, but we do that in a way that does not identify you or any other user personally. We may hire third parties to help us collect and analyze such data, and we may share such statistical data with such affiliated third parties. Again, such statistical data will not specifically identify you or any other user. We use this information to help us make these websites more useful to you and other visitors -- to learn about the number of visitors to these websites, what webpages visitors are interested in, how long visitors stay and the types of technology our visitors use.
SHARING OF INFORMATION
We may disclose information about you if and when we believe it is necessary to comply with any law, rule, court order, or subpoena, or to enforce our legal rights or the rules of our websites, or to protect our business, property and operations. Some areas of these websites may allow you to conduct e-commerce transactions (event registration, curriculum purchase, etc.). In connection with these transactions, we collect data necessary to complete the transaction that is furnished by you. This information may be furnished to a third party in order to facilitate the transaction.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
We may create links to other websites that we think may be of interest to you. We have not reviewed the privacy policies of any websites we link to, and you should read the privacy policies of each website you visit to determine what information about you that websites may collect and use.
Because we are committed to your privacy, we have put in place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to attempt to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the personal information we collect online. When you place an order or access your personal information on these websites, we offer the use of a secure server. However, please remember that no transmission of data over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us or from us, and you do so at your own risk.
Our websites provide users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us. You have the option of reviewing or removing your information from our database, and to no longer receive communication from us. You may unsubscribe from emails by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of a received email. If you wish to have your account information deleted from our database, please send an email.
Note that we may maintain information about individual sales transactions for the purpose of recordkeeping and servicing.
