We collect and use the information you provide to personalize the MCCNO Website so that we can better meet your needs, fulfill your online order, facilitate customer service, inform you of business opportunities and promotional offers, analyze trends; collect statistics; prevent misuse; comply with legal obligations; and for general business operations.
Information about the content you visit and services you use may be used alone or in conjunction with information collected from other users to help MCCNO tailor the MCCNO Website to better suit the needs and interests of you and other Users.
The term “Personal Data” includes information that has been provided by Users through the MCCNO Website to MCCNO, when a User creates a MCCNO Website account, makes a purchase, communicates electronically with us, or otherwise. Personal Data does not include data from which you can no longer be identified due to encryption or anonymity.
We may collect Personal Data from various sources, including:
We maintain the data that you provide in databases that are secured using commercially-reasonable, industry standard protections. Our collection and use of visitor information varies with the type of visit or transaction.
When you order from the MCCNO website, you will need to provide your name, billing and shipping addresses, telephone number, email address, and credit card information to process your order. MCCNO does not access or receive your credit card information. Your credit card information is received directly by our third-party payment card processors and service providers to perform fraud detection and payment processing services. If your purchase is rejected by our website because it was detected as a possible fraudulent use of a payment card, and you are in fact the authorized user of the card, you can contact us at email@example.com or call (504) 582-3000 for the issue to be evaluated and resolved. We will retain your name, billing and shipping address, telephone number, and email address provided for our records, in order to facilitate better customer service, and to inform you of our promotional offers. You may opt out of receiving these communications from MCCNO by following the instructions in those emails. You may also contact MCCNO at firstname.lastname@example.org to request removal from MCCNO’s promotional communications lists.
MCCNO works with third-party contractors to process ticketing for certain events or registration for certain courses. MCCNO contractually requires its vendors to maintain the security of the information which you provide to them and restricts the vendors from using this information in any way not expressly authorized by MCCNO.

As such, we advise that you exercise great care in determining what information you choose to make publicly available through the MCCNO Website.
If you send an email to MCCNO, your message and email address may be saved and we may send you emails in order to respond to your message. Any material, business information, ideas, concepts, or other information sent to MCCNO by email will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary. We will only use the information provided in your email and your email address to improve the MCCNO website, services, and products, and to fulfill or respond to your requests for products, services, or information.
Please be aware that our site may contain links to other sites hosted by third parties. Different rules may apply to their collection, use, or disclosure of your personal information. While we attempt to facilitate access only to those third parties that share our respect for your privacy, we cannot take responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of those third parties. We encourage you to review other websites’ policies before revealing any personally identifiable or sensitive information.
From time to time, MCCNO may invite you to participate in surveys posted on the MCCNO website or sent to you by email. You may decide whether you wish to complete such surveys, which may ask about your background, occupation, or similar questions. We use this information to help us better understand our audience, which in turn allows us to better meet your needs and interests. Information collected in these surveys is never sold, rented, or shared with third parties for marketing purposes, but we may share it with outside vendors to analyze the information we collect.

MCCNO takes reasonable steps to protect the Personal Data provided to us through the MCCNO Website from loss, misuses, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction, including through restriction of access to Personal Data to our employees, contractors, agents, and consultants who need to know that information in order to operate, develop, or improve the MCCNO Website. MCCNO maintains reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the Personal Data we maintain. Despite these efforts, however, no organization, including MCCNO, can fully eliminate risks, guarantee the security of Personal Data, or ensure transmissions will be error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from MCCNO may not be secure. Therefore, you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any Personal Data to us via the Internet.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of the MCCNO Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the MCCNO Website. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any User of the MCCNO Website.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to the MCCNO Website. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the MCCNO Website.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the “Shine The Light” law, permits our users who are residents of the State of California in the United States to annually request and obtain, at no charge, information about the personal information (if any) we have disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. 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. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request to email@example.com.
If you have provided us with your email address, we may send you emails in order to alert you to information, events, activities, or programs at or related to MCCNO that we believe may be of interest to you, or to alert you about sales or other promotional events at the MCCNO online store.
