PRIVACY/TERMS OF USE POLICY
Introduction

MEA-MFT takes your right to privacy seriously. Any information collected through the MEA-MFT website is the sole property of MEA-MFT and will not be shared, sold or distributed to any other party. This privacy policy deals with personally identifiable information (referred to as "data" below) that may be collected by this site. This policy applies to mea-mft.org, and each sub-domain associated with this URL and other websites owned and/or operated by or for MEA-MFT and its affiliated entities, including any existing or future mobile apps or sites (collectively, the "sites"). By merely visiting the sites, you are accepting the terms and condition set forth in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, you are not permitted to use the sites. This policy does not apply to other entities that are not owned or controlled by MEA-MFT, nor does it apply to persons that are not employees or agents of MEA-MFT.
 

1. Collection of data
Registration for the MEA-MFT Members Only area of this web site requires proof of membership. Data collected at the time a person completes a membership application with MEA-MFT may be contained in the secure online member registry. The member registry is only accessible by MEA-MFT select staff and agents. Returning users will have access to the Members Only portion of the mea-mft.org website by using a valid user ID and password.
Your password (if issued) is a component of our security system. As such, it is your responsibility to protect it. Do not share your password with any third parties.
 

MEA-MFT non-members will not have access to the MEA-MFT members only website, but can register for events/conferences. During the registration process for MEA-MFT events/conferences, non-members may be required to setup a user id and password as well as enter other data such as email address that will be stored on the secure server only accessible by MEA-MFT select staff and agents.
 

Individual users are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of passwords and user IDs and will be responsible for all usage of user account and/or user name, whether authorized or not authorized. You agree to immediately notify the site administrator of any unauthorized use of your user account, user name or password.
 
As on many websites, the site administrator may also automatically receive general information that is contained in server log files, such as your IP address, and cookie information.
 

2. Use of data
Data may be used to customize and improve your user experience on this site. Efforts will be made to prevent your data being made available to third parties unless (i) your consent is obtained, such as when you choose to opt-in or opt-out for the sharing of data; (ii) a service provided on our site requires interaction with a third party, or is provided by a third party, such as an application service provider.
 

3. Updating your contact information
If you would like to update your contact information or any other part of your membership file, please contact Jolene Devine at jdevine@mea-mft.org

4. Reservation of rights
MEA-MFT reserves all the rights, including but not limited to any and all copyrights, trademarks, patents, trade secrets, and any other proprietary rights in respect to the MEA-MFT website, its content, and goods and services. The use of content contained on this site may be used with either the prior written consent of MEA-MFT or the proper Associated Press (AP) style reference to MEA-MFT.org.
 

By making services available to you (the user), the site administrator is not providing you with any implied or express licenses or rights, and you will have no rights to make any commercial use of this website or MEA-MFT-affiliated websites.
 
5. Third party links
MEA-MFT, from time to time, provides links to third party groups or websites to help promote either its individual members or information for the benefit of MEA-MFT members and/or the general public. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected in connection with MEA-MFT sites. MEA-MFT is not responsible for the privacy practices of other websites that may be linked to the MEA-MFT sites. MEA-MFT encourages users to read the privacy policies of such websites and/or third party advertisers listed on such websites when connected to such sites via this website. Furthermore, MEA-MFT encourages you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.
 
6. Outside contractors
From time to time, MEA-MFT may employ independent contractors, vendors and suppliers (“Outside Contractors”) to provide specific services and products related to MEA-MFT sites or to the services provided on the sites, including but not limited to, performing general statistical analysis, maintaining an email suppression list as may be required by state and/or federal law, fraud screening, testing and implementation of special services to users, and developing applications for the sites and the services provided on the sites. Although unlikely, these Outside Contractors may have limited access to information collected on the sites, in the course of providing such products or services. These Outside Contractors will not be permitted to disclose any information that could identify you without your express written consent.

CANCELLATIONS, REFUNDS POLICY
1. Event/Conference Registrations
MEA-MFT hosts a variety of conferences and events that MEA-MFT members and non-members can register for online. All sales are final and no refunds will be issued unless otherwise stated in the event/conference registration.
