WELCOME TO MICRO ADVOCATES COOP
Micro Advocates Cooperative wants you to know that we respect the privacy and security of our users. Our goal is to provide you with an experience that delivers the information, resources and services that are helpful to you. We discuss our information collection practices below.
What Information is Collected and How is it Used?
This policy describes the information collected and its use. We do not sell information to third parties.
General Collection and Use of Personal Identifying Information.
You can visit our website without giving us any information about yourself. In certain circumstances, we do need information to respond to your requests, and this privacy statement explains data collection in those situations. We will only collect and use personal identifying information when a user voluntarily provides it to us. In order to use some portions of our website, or in order to undertake certain actions, a user must first complete a registration form or provide an email address that will require disclosure of personal identifying information. Such disclosure is strictly voluntary. In order to contact us by email, however, you must provide an email address.
We will use and retain the personal identifying information collected for limited internal purposes that may include, but are not limited to, establishing the identity of account holders, utilization for customer service, and providing you with information concerning our services.
We reserve the right to disclose your personal identifying information, if we are required to do so by law, or in the good faith belief that disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process, to respond to claims, or to protect or advance the rights, property, safety, or well-being of our company, our employees, customers, or the public.
Collection of Non-Personal Identifying Information
We collect and use non-personal identifying information, including Browser Type, Operating System and web server log files to track trends, administer the website, track user movement and gather demographic information. We use this non-personal identifying information in the aggregate and to troubleshoot technical errors. We do not combine these types of non-personal identifying information with personal identifying information. We may also share aggregated demographic information with our business partners.
Micro Advocates Cooperative has taken steps to ensure that personal identifying information collected is secure. We have a limited number of people who have access to the information, and electronic security systems and password protections that guard against unauthorized access. Micro Advocates Cooperative provides links to websites outside of Micro Advocates Cooperative. These websites may not have the same privacy policies as Micro Advocates Cooperative. Micro Advocates Cooperative takes reasonable care in recommending these websites but is not responsible for their content or privacy policies. We urge users to read the privacy statement of an outside website when leaving our site and linking to an outside website.
We always use industry-standard technologies when transferring and receiving consumer data exchanged with our site. We have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our site.
Usage Information Monitoring
In order to provide better system stability, we monitor sessions on our website. This is for the purpose of tracking and trouble shooting any technical problems that may arise when someone accesses our website. By monitoring the usage, we are better prepared to solve system problems faster. We do not disclose this information to any outside vendor.
Other Use of Personal Information Collected
If you supply us with your email or postal address on-line you will only receive the information for which you requested when providing us with your address. From time to time, we may use customer information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice. If our information practices change at some time in the future we will post the policy changes to our website to notify you of these changes and provide you with the ability to opt out of these new uses. If you are concerned about how your information is used, please check back at our website periodically.
How to Correct Information
Customers may supply corrected information by written request, phone or email at the contact information below. Upon request, we will provide you with access to all information that we maintain about you, including unique identifier information, contact information, transaction information, and any other information that we maintain about you. Users can have access to this information, and can have their personal identifying information corrected, by writing to us at the below address,sending us an email or by calling us.
