Effective April 15, 2015
This privacy statement (the “Policy”) outlines the methods MCWS uses to collect and use data in connection with its family of websites (the “Sites”). This Policy explains the information we collect about you and how we use it. If there are any important changes, we’ll update the “Effective Date” at the top and post the new policy here to let you know. By using or browsing our sites, you declare that you have read, comprehended, and agree to be governed by this Policy or any later version of it. If you find these terms offensive Please avoid using or going to any of the sites or the parts of it.
By using any feature of the Sites, you consent to the transmission of information outside of your country to the United States and other countries. The Sites keep and process any personal data that is obtained there and/or through them.
We will retain any information about you that you choose to disclose if you choose to post messages, comments, or other content in a public forum or other area on any of our websites, or on third-party websites linked to any of the websites (like our Facebook page, YouTube channel, or Tumblr).
Please read the privacy policies of each of your social networks to find out more about how you may use the privacy settings on those networks to limit who sees your personal information.
We may compile personal data about you into a file if you send us emails or letters with your contact information in them. Additionally, we’ll keep a log of our communications with you regarding your account.
We reserve the right to disclose information we have gathered, including personal information and/or anonymous demographic information, to third-party companies that may offer products or services we believe you might be interested in. To the extent permitted by applicable legislation, we may also reveal private information, such as your name and/or email address, to marketers and market researchers. We also share this information with third parties we work with to jointly promote and run competitions on our website.
We may also share information we collect with third-party service providers in order to operate certain aspects of the Site and/or the services we provide, such as maintaining our servers and processing or fulfilling orders for goods and services you purchase via the Site. We may also disclose your information in special cases, when required to do so by law, court order, or governmental authority, or in situations where we have a good faith belief that disclosing this information is prudent or necessary for other reasons, like, for instance, to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be harmed or interfering with MCWS’s rights or property.
In the event of a change in ownership or a merger with, acquisition by, or sale of assets to another business, including through bankruptcy, we reserve the right to transfer all user data collected in connection with the Site, including but not limited to email addresses, to a different corporation.
Cookies AND Website BEACONS WE Used
Cookies are data files that web servers create and store on your device for later access. The Sites utilise cookie technology to improve a feature or make the Sites easier to use, enhancing your online experience. In general, you can choose to disable cookies. However, in order for some features of the websites to function, such registration and commenting, you must allow cookies. Additionally, while you can always choose not to receive cookies, please be aware that doing so will need you to take this action for each of your devices and browsers since your opt-out preferences are device- and browser-specific. You can also erase cookies, but doing so won’t stop all tracking. We may also make use of “web beacons” or single-pixel GIFs, a type of technology that enables us to track website usage and provide co-branded services. Web beacons only gather a little amount of non-personal data, such as a cookie number, the time and date on which a page was seen, and a description of the page where the web beacon is located.
At this moment, we do not comply with Do Not Track requests.
MCWS employs reasonable safeguards to preserve the security of any information we have collected from or about you and to guard against its loss, misuse, and alteration. The personally identifiable data that MCWS holds is kept in a secure setting with just a few administrators having access.
