Like most website operators, MPHISE collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. MPHISE's purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how MPHISE's visitors use its website. From time to time, MPHISE may release non-personally-identifying information in aggregate, e.g. by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to MPHISE's websites choose to interact with MPHISE in ways that require MPHISE to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that MPHISE gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, users that create accounts are required to provide a name, email, and physical location. In each case, MPHISE collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with MPHISE. MPHISE does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
MPHISE may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, MPHISE may monitor the most popular types of postings in order to identify common trends. However, MPHISE does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
MPHISE discloses personally-identifying information only to those of its employees,
contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in
order to process it on MPHISE's behalf or to provide services available at MPHISE's
websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees,
contractors, and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country;
by using MPHISE's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. MPHISE
will not rent or sell potentially-identifying and personally-identifying information to
anyone. Other than its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described
above, MPHISE discloses information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other
governmental request, or when MPHISE believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably
necessary to protect the property or rights of MPHISE, third parties, or the public at
large. If you are a registered user of an MPHISE website and have supplied your email
address, MPHISE may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features,
solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with that's going on with MPHISE
and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one
of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us
clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. MPHISE takes all
measures reasonably necessary to protect against unauthorized access, use, alteration
or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
