How to contact MC with questions or comments.
When you visit MC’s Site and/or subscribe to or use MC’s products and/or services, MC asks you to provide information by filling out and submitting an on-line form. This information may include your name, account name, billing address, cell phone number, wireless e-mail address, physical location, mailing address, Internet e-mail address and, in the case of service and/or product transactions, your credit card number. MC asks for this information so that MC can provide to you your selected products and/or services. The information is stored in MC’s customer file in a secure environment separate from the Site. You can always choose whether or not to disclose any or all of the information requested; however, certain information is required for subscribing to or using our services and/or products.
MC may also occasionally send details about our sales, new products, new partnerships, special offers, market expansion and promotions to the e-mail address you provide.
Additionally, MC automatically gathers certain usage information like the number and frequency of visitors to the Site or the number and type of customers that access and obtain MC’s product and/or service offerings. Such information may also include demographic information such as date of birth, age or gender. MC only uses and analyzes such information in the aggregate, not at the individual level, to make improvements to its Sites and to its product, goods and service offerings. Therefore, any individual and personal information, such as your name and e-mail address, is not included in this analysis.
Information provided when users establish an account, such as their email address, username, password, and other contact information provided, as well as information they provide in connection with their other digital device account, such as a profile picture. If a user is a customer, we may also collect their information about how they use and interact with MC, and when they use their digital devices to view product or service offerings and purchase products or services.
Information related to a user’s purchase of goods and services by using a credit/debit card, billing address, the goods and services purchased, and other related transaction information.
Information about a user’s Internet connection, browser, or computer/device, IP address or digital device ID, and information on how they use and interact with digital devices, such as pages or features they access.

A cookie is a small file stored on your computer by a Site to give you a unique ID. Cookies help make it easier for you to use the Site, and they help MC provide you with the information you need — when and where you need it.
A cookie generated by a Site contains no information about you. It contains only a numeric ID that, for example, allows you to retrieve your order form or other associated information so that you can check on the level of service to which you have subscribed and/or products which you have ordered. MC encourages you to update your information periodically so that MC may provide you with the best possible on-line service.
MC also uses web beacons (single-pixel graphic files also known as “transparent GIFs”) to access cookies and to count users who visit the Site or open our HTML-formatted email messages. Another example of information that we automatically collect as you navigate the Site is information about your computer’s connection to the Internet. This information allows us, among other things, to improve the delivery of our web pages to you and to measure traffic on the Site.
In keeping with MC’s standard policy on customer information, MC analyzes data gathered via cookies and web beacons only in aggregate, not at the individual customer level.
MC will send one e-mail or message to confirm each requested information, and MC may occasionally use e-mail addresses or messages for promotion of services or products, or other items of interest to our users in compliance with local, state and federal laws. If you receive an e-mail or message from MC that you would rather not receive, please e-mail MC at the contact below with instructions to disengage you from the receipt of such information. Please note that MC does not sell or share e-mail addresses with other companies, except as indicated below.
MC encourages you to e-mail [email protected] with your questions or comments. MC reads every e-mail it receives.
If you provide MC with your name or e-mail address, MC may make these available to other companies who want to tell you about their products. (If you prefer that MC not share this information, please e-mail MC at the contact below with instructions to disengage you from the receipt of such items.) In delivering this information, MC may group you with other customers who have bought similar services and/or products, but MC will not provide any personal details about you.
MC may also provide aggregate information (never information about you personally) to MC’s business partners for the purposes of enhancing MC product and/or service offerings to you.
Protecting Personal Information: We understand the importance of ensuring that your personal information is secure and protected. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect personal information from unauthorized access, use, and disclosure.
MC utilizes a payment arrangement and/or service as indicated on the Site (including the checkout page) that is consistent with reasonable industry standards for obtaining and processing payments and engages in practices as recommended by the payment administrator and/or processor. The use of this arrangement and/or service is to facilitate privacy concerns regarding payment information used and processed at this Site.

MC will not share, sell or trade e-mail addresses, which are personal to you, and that are collected as part of a survey, with others. Except to verify credit card information to complete your service and/or product transaction, MC will not use or release to others any credit card or financial information for any purpose. For privacy purposes, all information relating to our customers is stored on a highly secure server that is not accessible via the Internet.
Third-party web sites, apps or other digital devices are not under our control except to the extent that you use the foregoing to access the Site.
