Effective Date: 4/31/2015
Here at Mission Training International (“MTI”), we understand and respect your concerns about the use of your personal information. We believe that you should know what information about you we collect, as well as how that information is used, maintained, and, in some cases, shared. The following sets forth our privacy practices and policies.
INFORMATION COLLECTED ABOUT YOU AND OUR USE OF SUCH INFORMATION
The following describes the types of personal and other information we may collect about you, and how we use and maintain that information:
In general, you may visit our website without revealing any personal information other than technology-related information described in the section below. However, certain sections and features of our website are only available to registered users of our website, who must enter a unique user ID and password. We collect and store personal information related to each user ID when you register for an account and use our website. We also collect and store any personal information and other data you have provided to us via our website, by email, or otherwise. Specifically, we collect and store in a database your name, mailing address, and email address, and may also collect and store your phone number, date of birth and other information you may provide to us. We use MailChimp as our email processor and utilize Google Analytics in analyzing information and use of our website. We use Authorize.NET for payment processing so none of the payment information comes through our website.
We use this information to register you for programs and to prepare to serve you during those programs or to provide donation services and receipts. We also use this information to respond to any inquiries you may submit to us, to track and monitor usage of our website and to communicate with you about your account and your use of our website. In addition, we may use this information to send you periodic publications associated with MTI, unless you inform us that you opt out from receiving such communications via email. We also use this information to operate this website; in particular, to facilitate postings on our discussion forums.
Our website collects and stores information that is generated automatically as you navigate through the website. This aggregate information is collected site-wide, and includes anonymous website statistics. [Our website also employs browser cookies to store users’ preferences and record session information. “Cookies” are bits of information that are stored by your browser on your hard drive. This technology allows for the storage of user preferences, user ID and password, if applicable, and remembers you when you take action on our website. You can turn off the “cookie” function through most standard browsers; however, some features on our website may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.
In addition, when you visit our website our system automatically collects information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser language, domain names, referring and exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of these page views, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser, and information automatically collected by Google for its Google Analytics. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the website, improve the design of our website, track user movement, and otherwise enhance the services we provide.
Credit Card and Bank Transfer Information
We may retain any data you provide to us in an email or other inquiry, to track the types of questions we receive, analyze trends, administer the websites and services we offer, improve the design of our websites and services we offer, track user movement, and otherwise enhance the services we provide.
WHEN YOUR INFORMATION WILL BE SHARED OR DISCLOSED
We will comply with any subpoenas, court orders or other legal processes for any of the information about you in our possession, and we may use such information to establish or exercise our legal rights, or to defend against legal claims. We reserve the right to disclose information about you, including data on which pages you have visited, to third parties if we feel it is necessary to protect our systems, website, business, users or others.
In addition, information about you in our possession may be disclosed as part of any merger, acquisition, sale of company assets, or transition of service to another provider, as well as in the unlikely event of insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which your personal information would be transferred as one of the business assets of the company. MTI does not guarantee that any entity receiving such information in connection with one of these transactions will comply with all terms of this policy.
As noted, once you register with MTI, we may send you administrative-related emails, as well as emails to facilitate your access to MTI’s services, including providing you with related updates. We may not offer you the opportunity to opt out of receiving these communications.
However, we provide you with the opportunity to elect not to receive other types of communications, including emails informing you about MTI’s services and other offerings that we think will interest you. If you want to stop receiving these communications, click on the “Unsubscribe” link in any such email, or contact use via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although our website may be accessed by children under the age of 13, we will not knowingly collect, maintain or use any personal information from such children, and no part of MTI’s web services are directed to persons under the age of 13. In fact, you must be at least 13 years of age to set up an account with us. IF YOU ARE UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE, PLEASE DO NOT USE OR ACCESS MTI’S SERVICES AT ANY TIME OR IN ANY MANNER. If we become aware that we have collected any personal information from children under 13, we will promptly delete such information from our databases. If you are a parent or guardian and discover that your child under the age of 13 has obtained a MTI account, then you may alert MTI at email@example.com and request that we delete that child’s personal information from our systems.
We do collect information about children under the age of 13 from parents. We collect this information to assist us in providing quality programs to those children. Providing this information is voluntary. If you wish information about your child to be deleted from our database, you may contact us to request this at firstname.lastname@example.org.
