Responding to legal requests and preventing harm
We may share your information in response to a legal request (like a search warrant, court order or subpoena) if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so or it is necessary to reveal such information in order to protect our rights or property. This may include responding to legal requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States where we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law in that jurisdiction, affects users in that jurisdiction, and is consistent with internationally recognized standards. We may also share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud and other illegal activity; to protect ourselves and you from violations of our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities; and to prevent death or imminent bodily harm.
To tailor our website operations to your needs by gathering and remembering information about your preferences, we analyze web traffic when you visit a particular site. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes, and then the data is removed from the system.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies; however, if you modify your browser setting to decline cookies, it could prevent you from taking full advantage of the services our website has to offer.
Using third-party services and visiting third-party sites
If you are logged into our website and visit a third-party site that embeds professional plugins, MCR will receive information that those pages have loaded in your web browser. MCR will use this information to customize your MCR experience, including providing you insights from your MCR dashboard.
Sharing information with third parties
We only provide data to our service partners and affiliates after we have removed your name or any other personal identifiable information from it or have combined it with other people's data in a way that it is no longer associated with you. Similarly, when we receive data about you from our partners and affiliates, we keep the data for 180 days. After that, we combine the data with other people's data in a way that it is no longer associated with you. The data we receive help us to continue providing you with top quality education and services as well as help us understand the online activity.
We do not sell, rent, or otherwise provide personal identifiable information to third parties without your consent except where it is necessary to carry out your instructions, such as processing your payment information. Also, we may share information with affiliates to provide more Services. We also provide you with the means to control whether or not your contact information is viewable to other Users through your profile.
We use the information you provide to:
Content distributed through MCR's sharing features and third-party integrations may result in displaying some of your information outside of the MCR platform. For example, when you post content to a Group on MCR and website that is open for public discussion, your content, including your name as the contributor, may be displayed in search engine results. Or, if you have bound your MCR account to your LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter accounts, or other social networking sites, you can easily share content into all these accounts.
Developers using MCR platform services
We collaborate with and use third parties to develop the MCR platform. These third parties, with whom we have negotiated an agreement to provide services, have agreed to our developer terms in order to build applications. Both the negotiated agreements and our Application Programming Interface (API) terms and conditions contain restrictions on access, storage and use of your information.
Also, despite our agreements and technical steps taken to restrict access to and avoid possible misuse of information, we may not screen or audit all Combined Services or Platform Applications. We also cannot guarantee that any external Service Provider will abide by our agreement. You agree that your use of Combined Services or external Service Provider is on an "as is" basis and without any warranty.
If you use any Combined Service or external Service Provider, the external Service Provider may access and share certain information about you that you have allowed them to access by agreeing to use their services.
To revoke permission granted to a Combined Service or external Service Provider at any time, you can choose to stop using their services. Note, however, that even if you revoke the permission granted a third party, your Users of MCR may still be using these services, so the external Service Provider may still have access to certain information about you, just as those Users do.
To report any suspected misuse of information, contact MCR's customer service. MCR is not responsible for your use of or inability to use any Combined Service or external Service Provider's Application, including the content, accuracy, or reliability of applications and the privacy practices or other policies of external Service Providers.
We may provide aggregated anonymous data about the usage of the external Services to third parties for purposes that we deem, in our sole discretion, to be appropriate.
Links to other websites
Our website may contain links to other websites of possible interest to you. However, if you use these links, once you leave our site, we have no control over third-party sites and therefore, we are not responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide while visiting such sites, and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should look at the privacy statements of those individual websites as they may differ from ours and proceed accordingly.
We will not sell, distribute, or lease your personal information to third parties.
Children and minors
Children under the age of 13 are not eligible to use our MCR Individual Service without consent of their Parents.
We offer search services to help find information within MCR.
Empowered Training Centre, LLC participates in the EU Safe Harbor Privacy Framework as administered by the United States Department of Commerce as a data controller, and has self-certified our privacy practices as consistent with U.S.-E.U. Safe Harbor principles: Notice, Choice, Onward Transfer, Access and Accuracy, Security, Data Integrity and Enforcement.
Please note that by becoming a User of MCR, you have given us your express and informed consent to transfer the data that you provide to us to the United States and to process it in the United States.
In order to help secure your personal information, access to your MCR account is password-protected, and sensitive data (such as credit card information) is protected by Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption when it is exchanged between your web browser and MCR. To protect any data you store on our servers, MCR also regularly audits its system for possible vulnerabilities and attacks, and we use a scalable secured-access cloud hosting provider. However, since the internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to MCR. There is no guarantee that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. It is your responsibility to protect the security of your login information. Please note that emails, instant messaging, text messages, and similar means of communication with other Users of MCR are not encrypted, and we strongly advise you not to communicate any confidential information through these means.
Spam, spyware or spoofing
We and our Users do not tolerate spam. If you receive spam or spoof emails, please report it to us.
You may not use our communication tools to send spam or otherwise send content that would breach our User Agreement. We scan and manually filter messages to check for spam, viruses, phishing attacks and other malicious activity or illegal or prohibited content. We may also store these messages for back-up purposes only.
