What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information

Our registration forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, email address, passwords, format preference (HTML vs. Text), address, interests, and similar information. We do not request or store sensitive information from our visitors, such as social security numbers. We do not sell or share email addresses or other personal information.

Credit card information is not stored on MCC.s website database. All retail credit card transactions are forwarded to a secure financial gateway.

Email and other personal correspondence related to feedback comments or any other interaction with the staff of MCC may be collected. MCC web logs collect standard web log entries for each page served. This includes the IP address, page URL, and timestamp.

We collect an IP address from all visitors to our site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our Site, analyze trends, track users' movement, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the site, and deliver customized, personalized content.
