CHILDREN’S ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT
As of April 21, 2000 the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act became effective. The regulations apply to the online collection of personal information from children under the age of 13. MEDA is very sensitive to the issue of children’s privacy and makes every effort to protect the privacy of children using the Internet. If you are under 13 years of age you should not use this website, and under no circumstances should you send information about yourself to MEDA, this Web site, products, and services are not developed for or directed at children.. If MEDA discovers that a child under the age of 13 has provided MEDA with personally identifiable information, MEDA will immediately delete that child’s personally identifiable information from the website.
What types of information does MEDA collect and how will it be used?
MEDA only collects information from you on a voluntary basis. We do not send Spam or sell email addresses. When we do collect personally identifiable information, it typically includes your name, email address, and demographic information such as age, gender and zip code. We also may collect your IP address, browser type, operating system type, domain name, access times and referring website address. This information is collected in response to specific requests from you, for things such as signing up for an email newsletter, filling out a volunteer application, or other online information service we may offer, entering a contest, answering a survey, or contacting us. Surveys are conducted strictly for internal profiling purposes and only keep track of anonymous demographic data (e.g., your age, usage of the MEDA website, favorite features).
How does MEDA use Aggregate Data?
MEDA may store the average indicators of aggregate Data of all Users to enhance their Services and provide comparative analytics to all Users (“Benchmarks”). The Benchmarks will reflect the average aggregate performance of all Users of the Services and will not be directly traceable to individual Users. We may publish the Benchmarks publicly, and share them with the Users of the Services. By using the Services, You agree with collection and storing of the aggregate Data for the purpose of creating Benchmarks for the Services.
With whom does MEDA share my personally identifiable information?
From time to time, we may employ and share your personal information with vendors who use it solely to provide support for the internal operations of our website (e.g., technical support and network delivery). These entities will not use your personally identifiable information for any other purpose, and have agreed to maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of the personal information they obtain from us.
It is our policy not to share, sell or rent your personal information to any company not directly related to MEDA.
