McBee Associates and Your Privacy

Your right to privacy is very important to McBee Associates. At McBee Associates, we believe that the personal information you provide to us must be kept confidential and used in a responsible fashion. We consistently strive to put our best efforts towards achieving both of these objectives.

Types and Reasons for Data Collection

When you sign up for membership in McBee Associates’ email news services, some personal information is required. This information is used for three primary purposes.

To help you quickly find services or information on mcbeeassociates.com.

To help us create Web site content most relevant to you.

To alert you to special offers, updated information and other new services from McBee Associates.

If the personal information collected is used for a reason not listed above, including sharing this information with any third party, we will post our procedures on how we intend to use it before we do so. Further, if you tell us that you do not wish to have personal information used as a basis for contacting you, we will respect your wishes and, to the best of our abilities, remove or block access to that information. Additionally, you may always cancel your membership at any time.

Explicit Member Signup Information

Explicit member signup information includes information collected during initial registration to McBee Associates Services, as well as any additional information provided to gain access to special services or features. These special services may include software downloads, special discount offers, Beta program participation, email newsletters and more.

This information is used by McBee Associates solely to inform you of new services and programs and, in an aggregate form, to improve the value of this web site. We may provide this information to other organizations within McBee Associates when needed to support and deliver specialized services. McBee Associates does not, sell, trade, rent, or otherwise transfer your personal information to third parties. We may, however, release personally identifying information when necessary to comply with state and federal laws. In such a case, we will do our best to notify you of any such release by contacting you through e-mail or by letter, if we are able to.

Web Site Traffic and Analysis

McBee Associates gathers and analyzes information from our visitors’ routine use of the web site. We use this information to monitor what areas of the site are most active, and to help focus our continuing development efforts. Only generalized, aggregate information is shared with other organizations within McBee Associates; an individual user’s traffic patterns are strictly confidential.

Collection of Information using “Cookies”

McBee Associates Services use several cookies to provide you easier and more direct access to information and services. The use of these cookies is required for full access to McBee Associates services. All information stored in these cookies is encrypted. Additionally, sensitive information, such as credit card numbers are never stored in cookies.

Links to Third Party Sites and Services (if applicable)

In addition, we may periodically conduct both business and individual customer surveys. We encourage our customers to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information. In all cases, your personal information and responses will remain strictly confidential, even if a third party conducts the survey. While we choose our survey providers carefully, it should be noted that the privacy policy for any third party collection services might differ from McBee Associates ‘s. Wherever possible, links to that party’s privacy policy are provided and should be consulted. McBee Associates is not responsible for the privacy practices of third parties.

McBee Associates is concerned with the security of the personal data we collect and has put in place measures to prevent unauthorized access to that information. Payment information is protected by a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection and, once stored, is protected through various security measures. These measures include both policies relating to access to information and technological elements such as firewalls etc. While we make every effort to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party “hackers” from illegally obtaining this information.

Note to Parents and Minors

Please note that our website does not market to minors. We do not want to collect any personal information from minors under any circumstances. We ask that minors (under age 18) refrain from using our site. Anyone using this Site or the Services warrants and promises that they are 18 years of age or older.

Updates to the Privacy Policy

McBee Associates is sensitive to user’s privacy issues and recognizes the need to update this policy as new features and business services are offered on mcbeeassociates.com. McBee Associates reserves the right to amend the privacy policy at any time with or without notice. Please check back frequently in the event of changes to our Privacy Policy.
