Privacy Policy

MEF_LOGOMEF operates It is MEF policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating the website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, MEF 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. MEF’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how MEF’s visitors use its website.

MEF also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on the blog. MEF only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to MEF’s websites choose to interact with MEF in ways that require MEF to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that MEF gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, MEF collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with MEF. MEF 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.

Aggregated Statistics

MEF may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. MEF may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, MEF does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

MEF discloses potentially personally-identifying and 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 MEF’s behalf or to provide services available at MEF’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 MEF’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. MEF will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, MEF discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when MEF believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of MEF, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a MEF website and have supplied your email address, MEF may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with MEF. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. MEF takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of MEF may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
