We may collect two basic types of information from you in conjunction with your use of the Website – personal information and non-personal information. “Personal information” is any information that can individually identify you and includes, for example and without limitation, your name, email address, username, telephone number, postal address, and so forth. “Non-personal information” includes information that does not personally identify you, but may include (without limitation) tracking and usage information about your location, demographics, transaction information, use of the Website and the Internet, etc.
There are a number of circumstances in which you may voluntarily supply us with your personal information. The following lists the most common ways in which we may collect your personal information:
Social Media Sites
When you interact with a MIM account on a social media platform, such as Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube, we may collect the personal information that you make available to us on that page or account, including your user ID and/or user name, and any information you have made public in connection with that social media service. Please note, however, that we will comply with the privacy policies of the corresponding social media platform and we will only collect and store such personal information that we are permitted to collect by these social media platforms.
Our Website may include social media widgets, such as Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter widgets. These features may collect information about your IP address and which page you’re visiting on our Website, and they may set a cookie to make sure their feature functions properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Website. Your interactions with those features are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide them.
When you use the Website, our servers may keep an activity log that does not identify you individually. These logs may include information such as device information about your computer, mobile device, or other device that you use to access the Website, which may include your IP address, browser, etc., and additional traffic data, such as time and date of access, access times, and referring website addresses. We use this information to assist us in running the Website and ensuring proper operation.
When you interact with the Website, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, “cookie” information, and the page you requested.
Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, but you can change your settings to notify you when a cookie is being set or updated, or to block cookies altogether. Please consult the “Help” section of your browser for more information. Please note that by blocking any or all cookies, you may not have access to certain features, content, or personalization available through the Website.
“Do Not Track” Practices
At this time, the Website is not configured to support do-not-track signals from browsers or other consumer choice mechanisms regarding the collection of behavioral tracking data. While we collect personal information from you as described above, we do not collect personal information from you to monitor your online activities across third party websites or online services and over time (also known as behavioral advertising or interest-based advertising). We do not use or allow third parties to collect personal information from you on the Website in order to monitor your online activities across third party websites or online services and over time.
Children’s Online Privacy
MIM respects the privacy of children and we are committed to complying with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). We do not intentionally collect personal information from children. If we learn that a child under 13 has provided personal information to us without verification of parental consent, we will take commercially reasonable steps to delete that information.
Email and Other Communications
We may contact you by email or other means at an email address that you have provided to us. For example, we may send you promotional offers or our newsletter. If you do not want to receive email from us, please let us know through the “unsubscribe” feature included in our communications.
We use the information we collect from you and about you to help us personalize and continually improve your experience with the Website. As non-limiting examples, we may use the information we collect from and about you in the following ways:
We may make your information available to certain third party service providers, such as contractors, agents, or sponsors, who help us manage or provide services offered on our Website, such as hosting, analytics, payment processing for items ordered through the MIM Store, customer service, etc.
We may also use or disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to applicable law or comply with legal process served on us or the Website; (b) respond to requests from public and government authorities; (c) protect and defend our rights or property, the Website, or our users; and (d) act under emergency circumstances to protect the personal safety of us, our affiliates, agents, or the users of the Website or the public.
If we sell all or part of our business, or make a sale or transfer of our assets, or are otherwise involved in a merger or transfer of all or a material part of our business, or are involved in a bankruptcy, MIM may transfer your information to the party or parties involved as part of that transaction.
If you are a California resident and have an established business relationship with us, you can request a notice disclosing the categories of personal information we have shared with third parties, for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes, during the preceding calendar year. To request a notice, please submit your request to MIM at info@MIM.org.
The security of your personal information is important to us. MIM takes reasonable steps to ensure the security of transactions that occur on the Website and the information under our control. We use safeguards that are designed to protect the information that we collect. Please be aware, however, that no security measures are perfect, and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against interception or other misuse.
Please note that the Website may link to other websites and online services operated by third parties. These websites and applications operate independently from us, and we do not control their privacy policies, which may be different from ours. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third party websites or applications.
The personal information we collect and other information you submit is stored and processed on computers in the United States. Your personally identifiable information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in a country other than the one in which it was provided, including into the United States. By communicating electronically with us, you acknowledge and consent that your personal data is being processed in this way.
