MnGCA Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting the MnGCA web site. This policy establishes how we will handle information we learn about you from your visit to our site. Please be assured that the privacy of our visitors is of utmost importance to us. We collect no personal information about you when you visit our site unless you choose to specifically provide that information to us. The only information that we may collect about you, again unless you specifically provide it, is the following:

* Your IP address (for security purposes)
* The internet domain (e.g. yourisp.com) through which you have connected (for security and trends purposes)
* The type of browser and operating system used to access our site (to assist us in improving page design)
* The date and time of your visit (for trends)
* The pages you visit (for trends)
* If you arrived from an outside link, the location of that link (for trends)
* Your screen resolution (to assist us in improving page design)

The trend data collected is not specifically tied to you as a user, but goes into a general database that tells us, for example, how many times a given page was visited in a month.

Additional statistics may be generated from your MnGCA site visits using Google Analytics. This data will be used to track visit trends that will help us improve the quality of our website, and to identify our user base. For more information about Google Analytics, please visit http://www.google.com/analytics/index.html

Some of our web pages contain links to web sites which are not part of the MnGCA site. Please be aware that when you follow a link to another site we have no control over that site and you are then subject to the privacy policies of the new site. MnGCA is providing these links only as a convenience. The presence of these links on any MnGCA website is not intended to imply MnGCA endorsement of that site, but to provide a convenient link to relevant sites, which are managed by other organizations, companies, or individuals.

If you provide us with an email address, either by sending us an email or through an online form, you will not be added to a "spam" list. We will only use your email address for purposes within the context which it was provided.

We will not share any personally identifying information you give us with any government agency or the public, without your consent or as required by law. When we collect personal information from you on behalf of another client (e.g. you register for an event or you purchase items from the website), by supplying that information you are giving us your express consent to share that information with that client and its agents.
