We also may collect navigational information, including information about the pages you view, the links you click, and other actions taken in connection with the site. MJPC may use your personal information to administer our web site and personalize it for you. MJPC may also collect and use information that you provide using for the purpose of registering with our site, transactions carried out over our site, and any information that you provide for the purpose of subscribing to services such as VIP Memberships, newsletters, etc.
In order to properly administer our web site, certain MJPC staff members will have access to information we collect from our members.

For these purposes, the agent or sub-contractor in question will be obligated to use that personal information in accordance with the terms of this privacy statement.
We also may share your personal information with service providers who perform services on our behalf. For example, we may hire other companies to handle the processing of payments, to provide data or email storage, to host our web site, to process credit cards, and so on. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to provide the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose.
We also use personal information to communicate with our members. For example, we may send you email communications such as welcome letters, updates of new features on our site, renewal reminders, purchase confirmations, and so on. MJPC Members always have the option of changing how we communicate with them by updating settings in their profile. MJPC’s member profiles are displayed publicly.

Security of Your Personal Information: The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to help protect your personal information.

Most of the information in this web site is kept in a database which contains posts, registration info, survey/poll results, private messages, logged IPs, and so on.
