This Privacy Policy details certain policies governing MAA’s use of personally identifiable information about users of our Websites and the information and/or materials contained on this Websites.

1.  Privacy Policy Updates

Due to the Internet’s rapidly evolving nature, MAA may need to update this Privacy Policy from time to time.  If so, MAA will post its updated Privacy Policy at this page so you may review what personally identifiable information we may collect and how we may use this information.  MAA encourages you to review this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes.  Your continued use of the Websites and/or continued provision of personally identifiable information to us will be subject to the terms of the then-current Privacy Policy.

2.  Use and Disclosure of Information

You can generally visit the Websites without revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself.  However, in certain sections of the Websites, you may wish to contact us with questions or comments or request information.  Due to the nature of some of these activities, we may collect personally identifiable information such as your name, title, company name, zip code, e-mail address, password and other contact information that you voluntarily transmit with your communication to us.  We also may collect information about you and your computer through your use of the Websites (for more information about the collection of this information, please see the sections entitled “Cookies” and “Aggregate Information”).

We may keep a copy of any information, including personally identifiable information that you provide to us and information that we collect via the Website, either individually or in the aggregate (collectively, “information”).

We may use your personally identifiable information to contact you to deliver certain information and/or materials you have requested, verify your authority to enter the Websites, and improve the content and general administration of the Websites.

We use and disclose information held about you in the following ways:

  • To ensure that content from our site is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer and to improve and update the content of our site.
  • To allow you to participate in interactive features of our service, when you choose to do so.
  • To review, analyse or respond to any request from or information submitted by you.
  • For law enforcement purposes and in response to legal process.
  • To protect our rights and interests.

We may disclose your information to third parties for the uses described above and as otherwise described in this policy. In particular, we may disclose your information to service providers, contractors, or agents who perform functions on our behalf. We also may disclose your information to law enforcement or in response to legal process, such as to comply with the law, a judicial proceeding, court order, or other legal process, as well as to protect our rights and interests, as we, in our sole discretion, deem appropriate.

3.  Children’s Privacy

MAA recognizes the privacy interests of children and we encourage parents and guardians to take an active role in their children’s online activities and interests.  The Websites are not intended for children under the age of 13.  MAA does not target the Websites to children under 13. MAA does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13.

4. Transfer of Information

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). It may also be processed by entities operating outside the EEA. The entities processing maybe engaged in amending the website, responding to a request from you, performing an analysis of the website or information submitted to it, for law enforcement purposes or to comply with legal process. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy. By using this Website and by submitting information to us you consent to transfer of your information outside of the EEA. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use appropriate procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

5. Cookies and Other Tracking Devices

When you interact with our Websites, we (or our third party service providers) may use cookies, clear gifs, webs beacons, Flash LSOs, or similar technologies to track user activity and to collect user data. We may combine this data with personal information that we have collected about you. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in the future. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your computer from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Visitors to our Websites who disable their web browser’s ability to accept cookies will be able to browse the Websites, but some of the features may not function properly if you disable cookies. Please note, however, that not all other tracking devices can be disabled. We may use the information that we collect about you through cookies and other tracking devices for the purposes described above and as described in the section below entitled “Aggregate Information.”

6.  Aggregate Information

Using cookies and other tracking devices described above, the Websites may track the total number of visitors to the Websites, the number of visitors to each page of the Websites, browser type, IP addresses, External Web Websites (defined below) linked to, and we may analyze this data for trends and statistics in the aggregate, but such information will be maintained, used and disclosed in aggregate form only and it will not contain personally identifiable information.  We may use such aggregate information to analyze trends, administer the Websites, track users’ movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

7.  Disclosure

We may provide your personally identifiable information and the data generated by cookies and the aggregate information to the vendors and service agencies that we may engage to assist us in providing the information and/or materials contained on the Websites to you.  We will disclose your personally identifiable information if we reasonably believe we are required to do so by law, regulation or other government authority.  We will not sell your personally identifiable information to any company or organization.

8.  Links to Third Party Websites

The Websites may provide links to other Web Websites or resources over which MAA does not have control (“External Web Websites”).  Such links do not constitute an endorsement by MAA of those External Web Websites.  You acknowledge that MAA is providing these links to you only as a convenience, and further agree that MAA is not responsible for the content of such External Web Websites.  Your use of External Web Websites is subject to the terms of use and privacy policies located on the linked to External Web Websites.

9.  Security

We may employ procedural and technological measures, consistent with industry practice, to protect your personally identifiable information.  Such measures are reasonably designed to help protect your personally identifiable information from loss, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction.  MAA may use password protection and other security measures to help prevent unauthorized access to your personally identifiable information.  MAA is not, however, obligated to employ such measures and makes no assurances thereof.
