ADOPTED SEPTEMBER 15, 2022 BY THE MCEDD BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Terms and Conditions
Personally identification information
The MCEDD website does not collect personal identification information. At times, users can click through to polls, contests, surveys, or to subscribe to the newsletter and may be asked for name, address, phone number, and/or email address. MCEDD may periodically link to surveys that request information about your interests and activities, your gender, age, and other demographic or relevant information as determined by us from time to time. MCEDD does not store this information and any use for surveys would be disclosed at that time. You may always choose not to provide information.
Aggregated and Non-Personally-Identifying Information
We may share aggregated and Non-Personally Identifying Information about users whenever they interact with our Website. We gather from users of the Website Non-Personally-Identifying Information of the sort that Web browsers, depending on their settings, may make available. That information includes but it not limited to the User’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system, browser type, and the locations of the websites the user views right before arriving at, while navigating and immediately after leaving the Website.
Although such information is not Personally-Identifying Information, it may be possible for MCEDD to determine from an IP address a user’s Internet service provider and the geographic location of the visitor’s point of connectivity as well as other statistical usage data.
If you do not want any information to be collected and used by Google Analytics, you can install an opt-out in your web browser (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout) and/or opt out from Google Analytics for Display Advertising or the Google Display Network by using Google’s Ads Settings.
We may use hyperlinks on the Website which will redirect you to a social network if you click on the respective link. However, when you click on a social plug-in, such as Facebook’s “Like” button, Twitter’s “tweet” button or the Instagram button, that particular social network’s plugin will be activated and your browser will directly connect to that provider’s servers. If you do not use these buttons, none of your data will be sent to the respective social network’s plugin provider. For example, when you click on the Facebook’s “Like” button on the Website, Facebook will receive your IP address, the browser version and screen resolution, and the operating system of the device you have used to access the Website. Settings regarding privacy protection can be found on the websites of these social networks and are not within our control.
Collection and Use of Information by Third Parties Generally
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) protects the online privacy of children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect or maintain Personally-Identifying Information from anyone under the age of 13, unless or except as permitted by law. Any person who provides Personally-Identifying Information through the Website represents to us that he or she is 13 years of age or older. If we learn that Personally-Identifying Information has been collected from a user under 13 years of age on or through the Website, then we will take the appropriate steps to cause this information to be deleted. If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 13 who has become a member of the Website or has otherwise transferred Personally-Identifying Information to the Website, please contact us using our contact information below to have that child’s account terminated and information deleted.
