META5 PRIVACY STATEMENT
Meta5 is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the Meta5 website and governs data collection and usage. By using the Meta5 website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.
Collection of Your Personal Information
Meta5 collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. Meta5 also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by Meta5. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by Meta5 for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Meta5 website.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through Meta5 public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: Meta5 does not read any of your private online communications.
Meta5 encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from Meta5 so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. Meta5 is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the Meta5 and Meta5 family of websites.
Use of Your Personal Information
Meta5 collects and uses your personal information to operate the Meta5 website and deliver the services you have requested. Meta5 also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Meta5 and its affiliates. Meta5 may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
Meta5 does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Meta5 may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, Meta5 may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Meta5, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
Meta5 does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
Meta5 keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within Meta5, in order to determine what Meta5 services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within Meta5 to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
Meta5 websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Meta5 or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Meta5; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Meta5, or the public.
The Meta5 website use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Meta5 pages, or register with Meta5 site or services, a cookie helps Meta5 to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Meta5 Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Meta5 features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Meta5 services or websites you visit.
Security of your Personal Information
Meta5 secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Meta5 secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Changes to this Statement
Meta5 will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. Meta5 encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how Meta5 is protecting your information.
Meta5 welcomes your comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe that Meta5 has not adhered to this Statement, please contact Meta5 at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and remedy the problem.
