This privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") explains how we intend to use any information you provide to us through the Website. By using and/or accessing the Website, you acknowledge your consent to our Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the collection, use and sharing of your information as set forth in this Privacy Policy you are not authorized to access and/or use this site. We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions from this Privacy Policy at any time. However, if at any time in the future we plan to use personally identifiable information in a way that materially differs from this Privacy Policy, including sharing such information with more third parties, we will post such changes here and provide you the opportunity to opt out of such differing uses. Your continued use of the Website following the posting of any changes to this Privacy Policy means you accept such changes. These Terms set forth the terms and conditions under which you may use our website and services as offered by us. This website offers visitors an online store, members area and online community engagement features. By accessing or using our website and its features and services, you approve that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these Terms.

 

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

For management of the Website, certain non-personally identifiable information ("Non-Personally Identifiable Data") is collected by us, through the standard operation of our Web servers and through use of "cookies" (described more fully below), for statistical purposes, including, without limitation, for market research activities. This Website uses software programs to create aggregated, anonymous statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing what information is of most and least interest to the Website visitors, determining optimal technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas so that we can work on improving such areas of the Website. We also use Non-Personally Identifiable Data collected by us to improve and enhance our users' experience on the Website.

 

Personally Identifiable Information

Participation in the Website features is totally voluntary. You are under no obligation to provide any information and/or personal data to Marines.com. However, in order to utilize some of the services or features, you may be asked to provide certain personally identifiable information ("PII") about yourself. PII can include, without limitation, your name, address, email address, rank, unit and service information. You may also be asked to submit PII about other users so that you can share content from the Website via email. You are not authorized to submit any such PII of another user unless you have consent from such user to submit such PII to us. You hereby represent and warrant that you have the necessary authorization to submit any such PII about any such other user. Your PII will never be publicly viewable on the Website.

 

In addition, for registered users of the Website, we may store information from your account and your activity on the Website in order to customize or personalize your experience on the Website. Previously stored information will only be used to customize your experience when you use the Website after logging into your account, and the information will not be available to other users.

 

We do not share any PII you submit through the Website with any third party other than our agents, contractors and affiliated websites in connection with the operation of the Website, unless it is necessary to respond to your inquiry, or to comply with applicable law. Agents and contractors who have access to PII are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy by not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for the Marine Corps Mustang Association, Inc. We will never sell your PII to any third party not affiliated with us without your prior written consent.

 

Security

The security of your PII is very important to us. When we collect your PII, we use reasonable efforts to protect it from unauthorized access. However, due to the inherently open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that your PII will be completely free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers, and your use of the Website demonstrates your assumption of this risk.

 

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Marine Corps Mustang Association, Inc. assumes no liability or responsibility for any (i) errors, mistakes, or inaccuracies of content; (ii) personal injury or property damage, of any nature whatsoever, resulting from your access to or use of our service; and (iii) any unauthorized access to or use of our secure servers and/or any and all personal information stored therein.

If a child who is not at least 18 years old has provided us with PII, that child's parent or legal guardian should contact us at Marine Corps Marine Corps Mustang Association, Inc., PO Box 546, Freeland, WA 98249, if the parent or legal guardian would like the information submitted by the child deleted from our database that contains information submitted by users of the Website. If we are so contacted or if we otherwise become aware that personally identifiable information from a child who is not at least 18 years old has been collected without such child's parent or guardian's consent, we will use all reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database.
