Thank you for visiting www.buymbp.com the official website of the PEF Membership Benefits Program (MBP)/MBP (hereinafter referred to as PEF Membership Benefits Program (MBP)/MBP or “We”). Because we share your concern about privacy and are committed to protecting your privacy online, we have created this Privacy Statement to explain our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website.
The type and amount of information received depends on how you use the site; you may provide (1) non-personal information that is collected on an aggregate basis from all users, OR (2) personal information you voluntarily choose to disclose through registering, filling out a profile form, or joining an email list. Members are required to log-in, for validation purposes, to view or use specific member-only features and services.
If you do nothing during your visit but browse, read pages, or download information, our site’s operating system will automatically record the following information about your visit without reference to your personal identity:
This information is used to help us diagnose technical problems, and track user interests so that we can provide content and special offers of interest to our sites’ users. We gather this information in the aggregate – as a total, not linked to individual users – and we may share it with our affiliates, and certain other reputable entities that share our interests.
PEF Membership Benefits Program (MBP) collects and uses personal information that you voluntarily provide for the purposes described below. By “personal information,” we mean information that, on its own, can specifically identify you. This includes your name, email address, and zip code. Any information you provide is collected and stored by PEF Membership Benefits Program (MBP).
We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. You should be aware that this site is not intended or designed to attract children under the age of 13. Consistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent.
This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to protect the transmission of information you submit to us when you use our secure online forms. You are on a secure page when the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer become locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, when you are just “surfing.” All the information you provide us through these forms is stored securely off-line, as defined by our Data Collection methods.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also protect user information off-line. All user information is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need information to perform a specific job (e.g., Accounting or Member Services) are granted access to personally identifiable information. All employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Finally, the servers that store sensitive information are kept in a secure environment.
If you send us email, you should know that email is not necessarily secure against interception. So, if your communication contains sensitive information (e.g., your account numbers, charge card, private information or social security numbers), and you prefer not to use one of our secure online complaint forms, please contact us by mail or by telephone rather than by email.
If you have any questions about this Privacy Statement, the information we have collected from you online, the practices of this site, or your interaction with the website, please send an email.
If you experience technical problems with the operation of this web site email us.
If your personal information changes, such as your name or mailing address, please make changes online via the eStore.
As our website evolves, our Privacy Statement will also undergo changes. We reserve the right, at our discretion, to make changes to this statement at any time. We encourage you to check our Privacy Statement periodically or when you notice new features on the website. All amended terms are effective immediately upon posting. By using this site, you signify your agreement to this Privacy Statement and consent to the collection and use of your information by PEF Membership Benefits Program (MBP) as described herein.
www.buymbp.com makes every effort to protect your privacy and the security of any information that you provide to us. But we urge you to remember that privacy and security begin with you.
