Scope of Policy:
Collection of User Information:
The primary reason that MDI collects and maintains User Information is to identify and verify proper user access to the data and functions within this site. MDI collects information about users during registration to this site and during their participation in certain activities on this site. When a user accesses this site, MDI’s web servers and applications automatically record and track the data made available via the Internet concerning the user. This generic information does not reveal the user’s identity and is used in a non-personally identifiable form to improve the site.
Use of User Information:
The information provided by the user is used for the purpose for which it was provided to identify and verify proper user access to the data and functions within this site and to make contact – via telephone or E-mail – with the user as necessary based upon the functions used and selections made.
MDI does not disclose or sell User Information to any non-affiliated third party. Notwithstanding this policy, MDI retains the right to disclose collected user information if required to do so by law or if acting on a good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to protect the rights or property of MDI, or to respond to an emergency situation.
Retention of User Information:
Subject to limits imposed by applicable law, MDI retains User Information as long as it believes in its sole discretion such information will be useful or needed. MDI reserves the right to remove User Information from MDI’s records as appropriate.
MDI restricts access to nonpublic personal information about you to those of our employees who need to know that information in order to provide proper services to you. MDI employees are bound by MDI’s Code of Ethics and MDI’s other policies concerning access to your data and information. MDI also maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards designed to protect your nonpublic information.
MDI also uses various Virus Protection, Firewalls and Activity Logs as additional security mechanisms.
While MDI and its affiliates have taken various security measures to protect the privacy of the information you submit, we cannot guarantee that computer hackers, security failures, or other attacks will not compromise the confidentiality of your information. We will continue to maintain our dedication to protecting your privacy and data.
Transferability of Information:
In the event we go through a business transition such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, your personally identifiable information may be among the assets transferred. You will be notified by means of a notice on this site for at least thirty (30) days of any such change in the ownership or control of your personal information.
