A cookie is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer when you visit a website. When you visit the Site again, the cookie allows the Site to recognize your browser. Cookies may store unique identifiers, user preferences, and other information. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.

    To Provide Services and Information. We collect information from you so that we can provide services and information that you request from us. We use your personal information to contact you and respond to your requests. We may send you information about our products and services, and new offerings.

    Sharing with Third Parties. We may provide information to third-party service providers that help us operate and manage our Site and deliver services and information that you request from us. These service providers will have access to your personal information in order to provide these services, but when this occurs, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections to limit their use of that information to helping us provide the service.

    Your Consent. In addition to the sharing described elsewhere in this Policy, we will share personal information with companies, organizations, and individuals outside of MCR when we have your consent to do so.

    Legal Proceedings. We will share personal information with third-party companies, organizations, and individuals outside of MCR if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation, or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:

    • Enforce applicable Terms of Use, including investigation of potential violations.
    • Detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues.

    We use industry standard physical, technical, and administrative security measures and safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of your personal information. However, since the Internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot guarantee, ensure, or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, including documents you send to us via
    e-mail. There is no guarantee that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. It is your responsibility to protect the security of your login information.

    All financial transactions, including donations, are handled through a secure third-party payment processor, PayPal.



    If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (EEA), in order to provide our Site, products, and services to you, we may send and store your personal information (also commonly referred to as personal data) outside of the EEA, including to the United States. Accordingly, your personal information may be transferred outside of the country where you reside or are located, including to countries that may not or do not provide the same level of protection for your personal information. We are committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of personal information when it is transferred. Where such transfers occur, we take appropriate steps to provide the same level of protection for the processing carried out in any such countries as within the EEA to the extent feasible under applicable law. By using and accessing our Site, users who reside or are located in countries outside of the United States agree and consent to the transfer and processing of personal information on servers located outside of the country where they reside, and that the protection of such information may be different than required under the laws of their residence or location.



    Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will not reduce your rights under this Privacy Policy without your consent in accordance with applicable law. We will post any privacy policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice (including, for certain services, e-mail notification of privacy policy changes). We will also keep prior versions of this Privacy Policy in an archive for your review.
