Privacy Statement / Terms and Conditions of Use
The MPM Group, Inc. (MPM) respects your privacy and is committed to protecting the personal information you share with us. This statement describes how MPM collects and uses your personal information to provide services that you request or when you choose to provide us with your personal information.
Personal information means any information that may be used to verify credit card or other PayPal® payment information, to otherwise identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, email address, a home, postal or other physical address, other contact information, title, occupation, industry, personal interests, and other information when needed to provide a service or product or carry out a transaction you have requested.
When you utilize this website, you do so anonymously, unless you have previously registered with us. We do not automatically collect personal information, including your email address. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our website you visit and how long you spend there. But we do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you have registered with us. Like many other commercial websites, TheMPMGroup.com website may use standard technologies, such as "cookies" and other HTML tools, to collect information about how you use the site or to record that you opened an email marketing message.
MPM will only collect your personal information when you register with us at TheMPMGroup.com for an account, when you apply for available sub-contractor opportunities, use certain other MPM products or services, or when you submit your personal information to MPM for any other specific reason. From time to time, MPM receives personal information from business partners and vendors. MPM only uses such information if it has been collected in accordance with acceptable privacy practices consistent with this Privacy Statement and applicable laws.
Subsequent access to certain TheMPMGroup.com web pages requires a login and a password. The use of those web pages, and the information or programs downloadable from those sites, may be governed by an agreement between you and MPM. Unless you request deactivation of your personal information as specified below, your personal information may be retained by MPM to verify compliance with the agreement.
When personal information is collected, we will inform you at the point of collection the purpose for the collection. MPM will not transfer your personal information to third parties without your consent, except under the limited conditions described under the discussion entitled "Information Sharing and Disclosure" below.
In most cases we will provide you with the opportunity to "opt in" prior to receiving direct marketing or market research information. This means we will require your affirmative action to indicate your consent before we use your information for purposes other than the purpose for which it was submitted. At a minimum, we will always give you the opportunity to "opt out" of receiving such materials. This means we assume you have given us your consent to collect and use your information in accordance with this Privacy Statement unless you take affirmative action to indicate that you do not consent, for instance by clicking or checking the appropriate option or box at the point of collection.

In particular, you may be required to accept cookies in order to complete certain actions on our website.

MPM may send your personal information to other companies or people under any of the following circumstances:
- When we have your consent to share the information;

Also, such companies are prohibited from using your information for any other purpose);
- As part of a joint sales promotion or to pass sales leads to one of our distribution partners; and
- To keep you up to date on the latest product announcements, software updates, special offers or other information we think you would like to hear about either from us or from our business partners (unless you have opted out of these types of communications).
Your MPM account information is password-protected for your privacy and security. MPM safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. In certain areas of our websites, MPM uses industry-standard SSL-encryption to enhance the security of sensitive data transmissions. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure the security of the information you transmit to us, and so we urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser.
