Collection of Personal Information
When you engage in certain activities on this site, such as ordering products, downloading software, or entering contests, MESCIUS may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, MESCIUS may require that you provide certain personal information such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, and other personal identifying information. When ordering products on the Website, you may be asked to provide a credit card number. In some countries, MESCIUS is represented by an exclusive reseller who provides marketing, sales, and support services on behalf of MESCIUS in the interest of providing better service to customers residing in those countries. When you submit personal information to MESCIUS, you understand and agree that if you reside in a country where MESCIUS is represented by an exclusive reseller, MESCIUS may forward your customer profile to such reseller for the purpose of providing you with marketing, sales, and support services. Your personal information will not be leased, sold, rented, or otherwise made available to any other third party except to the extent necessary to comply with applicable laws, police investigations, or in legal proceedings where such information is relevant. Occasionally, MESCIUS allows access to database information to bonded mailing houses only for the purpose of allowing for the printing of mailing labels that are used for MESCIUS' own direct mail and promotional purposes. In those instances, the third party is bound by these terms. All information collected, regardless of type, will be protected pursuant to the Privacy Act, Freedom of Information Act and The General Data Protection Regulation (EU).
MESCIUS collects this information in order to record and support your participation in the activities you select. If you order a product, for example, the information is used to register your license and rights, if any, to upgrade discounts, technical support, or other benefits that may be made available to registered users. If you enter a contest, information is collected to qualify the entry and contact you regarding the contest or prize awards. MESCIUS also uses information that you provide as part of our effort to keep you informed about product upgrades, special offers, and other MESCIUS products and services. Notwithstanding other provisions contained herein to the contrary, you hereby agree that MESCIUS may assign, sell, license, or otherwise transfer to a third party, your name, address, email address, member name, and any other personal information in connection with an assignment, sale, joint venture, or other transfer or disposition of a material portion or essentially all of the assets or stock of MESCIUS or its affiliated entities.
Your personally identifying information will not be used by MESCIUS for editorial purposes unless you first agree in writing. MESCIUS may also use such information for MESCIUS promotional and marketing purposes. MESCIUS respects your privacy. We recognize and appreciate the importance of responsible use of this information and realize that not everyone likes to receive special offers or information about MESCIUS products.
