Disclosing Personal Information
We may share your personal information with corporate affiliates to carry out transactions you request or to make our business or that of our corporate affiliates more responsive to your needs. We may also disclose your personal information in connection with law enforcement, fraud prevention, or other legal action; as required by law or regulation; or if MCP reasonably believes it is necessary to protect MCP, its customers, or the public. In addition, we may share your personal information with business partners that help MCP carry out transactions you request or that help MCP to customize, analyze, and/or improve our communication or relationship with you, and then only with business partners who share MCP’s commitment to protecting your personal information.
How We Secure Your Personal Information

We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure, such as encryption, passwords, physical security, etc. While we strive to protect your personal information, MCP cannot ensure or warrant that the personal information or private communications you transmit to us will always remain private, and you do so at your own risk.

If you are under 18 years of age, please do not submit any personal information through our websites without the express consent and participation of a parent or guardian.
MCP web sites use MCP and third party “cookies” to enable you to sign in to our services and to help personalize your online experience. A cookie is a tiny piece of text asking permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. If you agree, then your browser adds the text in a small file.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to sign in or use other interactive features of MCP web sites and services that depend on cookies.
How We Use Web Beacons
MCP or third parties with whom we have contracted or sub contracted, may use web beacons on our web site, in our emails, in our advertisements on other web sites, or in our advertisements in others’ emails. Similarly, third parties whose content or ads appear at mcpgov.com, or whose emails mcpgov.com sends to our users, may also place web beacons in their ads or emails for purposes of measuring the effectiveness of the content, ads, or email.
A web beacon is an electronic image that can be used to recognize a cookie on your computer when you view a web page or email. Web beacons help us measure the effectiveness of our web site and our advertising in various ways. For example, web beacons may count the number of individuals who visit our web site from a particular advertisement or who make a purchase from our web site after viewing a particular advertisement or they may tell us when a web page is viewed and provide a description of the page where the web beacon is placed. Web beacons may also measure the effectiveness of our email campaigns, by counting the number of individuals who open or act upon an email message, determining when an email message is opened, and determining how many times an email message is forwarded.
The information we collect through web beacons may include some limited personal information, and web beacons allow us to recognize users by accessing MCP cookies. We may also combine the information that we collect through web beacons with other personal information we have collected from you. We use all of this information to better tailor our marketing to you and may use this information for other purposes, such as to enable a shopping cart, customize content on our web site and undertake internal research.
We prohibit web beacons on our sites from being used by third parties to access your personal information. We may allow third parties to compile individual information or aggregated statistics from the use of web beacons on mcpgov.com by MCP, its agents, or others, to enable such third parties to determine the effectiveness of online marketing and to allow such third parties to develop statistics on how often clicking on an advertisement results in a purchase or other action on the advertiser’s site. Aggregate information is anonymous and may include demographic and usage information. No personally identifiable information about you is shared with partners for this research.
You can make some web beacons unusable by rejecting cookies.
Third-Party Websites and Services
Please be aware that other websites that may be accessed through our website may collect personally identifiable information about you. The information practices of those third-party websites linked to mcpgov.com are not covered by this privacy statement. Please be aware that, in providing services on MCP’s behalf, our business partners may collect personal information about you.
