Privacy and Use of Personal Information

MMF is a non-subscription site and users may use most parts of MMF without providing information that personally identifies them (“Personal Information”). However, there may be times that MMFAC requests that you provide Personal Information in order to obtain the benefits of a particular service, as part of a contest or promotion, in order to receive future information, or in order to personalize your on line experience. In that case, the individual web page or Web site requesting the information will identify when Personal Information is necessary, the expected use of the information and how MMF secures such information once you have provided it. You may then determine whether to provide the Personal Information and take advantage of the benefits of the page or site. In addition, MMF or an individual site or page within MMF may place a text file called a “cookie” in the browser files of your computer. Cookies are pieces of information that a Web site transfers to an individual’s hard disk for record keeping purposes. The cookie itself does not contain Personal Information although it will enable the page or site to relate your use of the page or site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided to the page or site.

Finally, by being a user of this Web site, you agree that MMFAC may share with other parties any information gathered by MMFAC in the course of your continuing use of this site, which does not personally identify you. MMFAC also reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request. If at any time you believe MMFAC has not adhered to these principles of privacy and use of personal information, please notify us by using the contact information at the top of this page and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and correct the problem. If you have questions about this policy, please contact us.
