It may be that not every MGK Site has adopted this policy.  Individual MGK Sites may adopt different privacy policies that fit the purposes on that MGK Site.  If an MGK Site has its own privacy policy, the provisions of that policy will control if it conflicts with this general policy.

 

 

1.         Types of Information Collected

 

 

a.         Personal Information Collected .   There may be areas on our Site where you can share your name, company name, postal address, e-mail address, phone number, and zip code (“Personal Information”) with us and where you can communicate with others.  Our Site may also provide you with the option to sign-up and receive electronic communications from us, where we may ask for certain Personal Information.  If you communicate with us by e-mail, we may request Personal Information that personally identifies you.  MGK may also request your e-mail address or mailing address for the purposes of having someone contact you for additional information, or in response to your request for information from us.  If you request that information be mailed to your postal address, you may request to be placed on our mailing list to receive periodic mailings from us.

 

b.         Information from Children.  MGK does not knowingly solicit or collect information from children under 13 years of age.  The use of this Site by children under 13 years of age is not conditioned on the disclosure of Personal Information.  However, we ask that children not submit information to us without the consent of a parent or guardian.  If we e-mail information to you, we will provide prominently displayed instructions that show you how to unsubscribe from receiving such information.  If your child requests to receive information from MGK without your knowledge, simply follow the instructions on our e-mail and unsubscribe immediately.  Please include the child’s name and the parent’s e-mail address in the e-mail so that MGK can better assist you with your inquiry or request.  Parents can also contact our customer service department to access, change, or delete the personal information that  has been submitted by a child.

 

c.          Cookies and Tracers .   MGK may collect information about you and your use of our Site whenever you visit this Site.  For instance, we may collect various forms of information such as entry and exit points for our Site (i.e., referring URLs or domains), site traffic statistics, operating system and browser type (collectively “Traffic Data”).  Traffic Data is anonymous information that does not personally identify you but is helpful for marketing purposes or for improving your experience on the Site.  In addition, when you request pages on our Site, our servers automatically log your IP address.  An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web.  MGK may store some information on your computer in the form of a “cookie” or similar file to help us maintain and improve this Site in many ways.  A “cookie” is a small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you.  It functions as your identification card, recording such things as Internet addresses, passwords, and preferences.  It cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses.  With most Internet browsers, you can erase “cookies” from your computer hard drive, block all “cookies,” or receive a warning before a “cookie” is stored.  The “Help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether.  Please refer to your browser instructions to learn more about these functions.  Enabling cookies allows you to take full advantage of all the features on the Site and we recommend that you leave them turned on.  If you elect to block the cookies, we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience on our Site.

 

 

In some instances, MGK may use tracking scripts or “tracers” that recognize a unique identifier from a cookie placed on your hard drive by another website.  These are used by MGK solely to gauge the success of our own advertising.  For instance, we may use a tracer to determine whether you visit certain web pages where MGK may have placed a banner ad. We do not use tracers to gather information on your use of the Internet unrelated to MGK. Please note that MGK does not use tracers to identify your personal information, and you remain anonymous unless and until you communicate with MGK via e-mail or complete on-line forms.

 

 

2.         Use of Information Collected

 

 

MGK will use the Personal Information directly submitted by you for the purpose for which you have provided it, whether it be to apply for a job, request information, etc. MGK may also use the information you provide to us to contact you for reasons related to your original communication to us.  We may use your Personal Information to customize your experience on the Site and display content that we think you might be interested in according to your preferences.  Your e-mail address is not used for any other purpose except to the extent necessary to follow-up on specific questions requiring information from MGK, our subsidiaries, related companies, affiliates or business partners, or to follow-up with you on your application for employment.  Visitors who give us their telephone numbers online will only receive telephone contact from us for reasons related to the visitors original communication or request.  We may use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design the MGK Sites.

 

 

3.          Sharing of Personal Information

 

MGK will not sell, rent, share, monitor, edit, or disclose any Personal Information about you, including its contents or your use of the Site, without your prior consent, but MGK may share your Personal Information, without your prior consent, for the limited purposes noted below:

 

 

a.         Third Parties .   MGK may share Personal Information with other companies and individuals to perform functions such as delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), and providing customer service.  Such companies shall only use your Personal Information for those purposes required to perform their functions.

 

b.         Business Transfers.   As MGK continues to develop its business, we might sell or buy subsidiaries or business units.  In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the obligations made in any pre-existing privacy policy.

 

c.         Legal Obligations.  MGK may share your Personal Information if we have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to:  (i) comply with legal process or other legal requirements of any governmental authority; (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of MGK; (iii) enforce this Agreement; (iv) protect the interests of other users of the Site or any other person; or (v) operate or conduct maintenance and repair of the Site or equipment.
