How we collect and use the information gathered when you sign up for M+R’s newsletter

When you sign up for M+R’s newsletter, we use this information to contact you and send you occasional updates and nonprofit advice.

Cookies: M+R uses “cookies” on some web pages. A cookie is a small piece of data stored in the memory of an End User’s web browser but does not itself contain any personal information. M+R also uses IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the website, track End User movement and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

M+R’s website is not directed to children, and M+R does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information about individuals under the age of 18.

How you receive emails and email newsletters from M+R:

You will only receive email newsletters from us if you have (a) expressly signed up to receive emails from M+R through the M+R website, or (b) are already an M+R contact. In order to provide you with better and more relevant information, we compile information about email response and website usage. This information helps us to better understand our visitors’ website usage patterns and also what types of content and information may help improve your user experience on the M+R’s website. All emails sent contain a link to unsubscribe or modify your profile. You may subscribe or unsubscribe to any newsletter or email communication from M+R at any time.

How we share information:

M+R never shares email addresses and telephone numbers gathered from subscribers with other organizations or parties.

We also may be required to release information if required to do so by law or if, in our sole discretion, such disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process or to protect the rights, property or personal safety of our website, M+R, our officers, directors, employees, clients, other users and/or the public.

Your California Privacy Rights

California Law California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the “Shine The Light” law, permits California residents to annually request, free of charge, information about personal information (if any) disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. If applicable, this information would include a list of the categories of personal information that was shared and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared information in the immediately preceding calendar year.

Do Not Track Disclosure:

M+R does not track its customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third-party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites, your web browser allows you to set the DNT signal so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked.

Third parties that have content embedded on M+R websites, such as a social feature, may set cookies on a user’s browser and/or obtain information about the fact that a web browser visited a M+R website from a certain IP address. Third parties cannot collect any other personally identifiable information from M+R’s websites unless you provide it to them directly.

How we protect your information:

M+R is extremely protective of the information gathered through its website. Our website has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of the information under our control. The web server is located in a locked, secure environment. All databases containing personal information are securely stored and only accessed by authorized M+R personnel.

How to unsubscribe from mailing lists:
