This statement discloses the privacy practices for the all websites within the Mega International Web Network. Please also read our Visitor Agreement.
Children should always get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, email addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else. The information gathered by the Mega International Web Network falls into two categories: (1) information voluntarily supplied by visitors to our website through optional registration and (2) tracking information gathered as visitors navigate through our site.
To make use of certain features on our website visitors may have to provide certain information as part of the registration process. (We may ask, for example, for your name, email address, sex, age, and zip code, and we might request information on your occupation, interests, and the like.) The information you supply will help us to make the Mega International Network a better website, by allowing us to tailor our site to your interests and make it more useful to you. Those participating in research surveys will be helping to expand our understanding on a variety of topics. Supplying such information is entirely voluntary. If you want to remain completely anonymous, you are still free to take advantage of the wealth of content available on our site without providing any personal information.
To help make our site more responsive to the needs of our visitors, we may invoke a standard feature of browser software, called a "cookie," to assign each visitor a unique, random number (a sort of user ID) that resides on your computer. The cookie does not personally identify the visitor as an individual; rather, cookies merely identify the computer that a visitor uses to access our site. Unless you voluntarily identify yourself (through registration, for example), we will have no way of knowing who you are, even if we assign a cookie to your computer. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply. A cookie cannot read data off your hard drive. Any advertisers, linked to through this site, may also assign their own cookies to your browser (if you click on their ads), a process that we do not control.
Our web servers automatically collect limited information about your computer's connection to the Internet, including your IP address, when you visit our site. (Your IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send you data -- such as the web pages you view.) Your IP address does not identify you personally. We use this information to deliver our web pages to you upon request, to tailor our site to the interests of our users, and to measure traffic within our site.
All information gathered on the Mega International Web Network is securely stored. The database is stored on servers secured behind a firewall; access to the servers is password-protected and is strictly limited. However, as effective as our security measures are, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. Any payments made on this website are done so through PayPal's secure servers. Please see their privacy and visitor agreement for more information about how credit card information is stored.
