INFORMATION WE COLLECT
MailThisBack (MTB) collects information about our visitors to our website so that we can provide an experience that is responsive to our visitors’ needs. Information may be collected as part of fulfilling orders or information requests, purchasing products, or responding to communications from us (e.g., surveys, promotional offers, or confirmations). The types of personally identifiable information that we collect may include your name, home, work and e-mail addresses, telephone and fax numbers, credit card information, date of birth, gender, lifestyle, and other relevant information. MTB may also collect non-personally identifiable information about you, such as your use of our website, communication preferences, purchasing preferences and habits, and responses to promotional offers and surveys.
PURPOSE FOR COLLECTION, PROCESSING, AND DISCLOSURE
Collection & Use
The primary purposes for collecting your personally identifiable information are as follows:
- providing services such as processing a transaction (e.g., fulfilling a request for information, or completing a product order)
marketing and communications with you in relation to the products and services offered by MTB, marketing partners, and other trusted third parties
- performing market research via surveys to better serve your needs, improve the effectiveness of our website, your experience with us and our various types of communications, advertising campaigns, and/or promotional activities
- You will always be offered the choice not to submit your information or to decide what communications you want to receive from us. However, doing so may cause certain transactions to become affected. For example, not providing a name or email will prevent the processing of certain requests; not providing an address may limit the programs or offers we can make available to you that are geographically focused.
Processing and Disclosure
In most cases, the information you provide is added to our database. In the course of processing your information, some information may become known to MTB’s affiliates, and/or third party service providers for the purposes outlined within this Privacy Statement. As a general practice, MTB does not sell, rent, or give physical possession of your information to unaffiliated third parties outside the MTB system except for certain trusted third parties and partners. Situations in which MTB may disclose your information to others include:
- in situations where sharing or disclosing your information is required in order to offer you products or services you desire
- when companies or services providers that perform business activities on behalf of MTB require such information (e.g., credit card processing, customer support services, market research administration or database management services)
- to comply with legal or regulatory requirements or obligations in accordance with applicable law or court order
- in order to provide information that will enable us to make our services and those of our trusted partners more effective.
If information is shared as mentioned above, we seek to limit the scope of information that is furnished to the amount necessary for the performance of the specific function. Unless otherwise precluded by legal process, we require third parties to protect your information and abide by applicable privacy laws and regulations.
On occasion, as part of our commitment to keep you informed, we may mail, e-mail, telephone, or contact you by other means to notify you of new MTB products and services, or upcoming MTB special offers, events, enhancements, or other relevant information that may be of interest to you. You may also receive mailings or other communications from carefully selected third parties. We always offer you the option to decline any or all of these communications by contacting MTB directly.
We would like to keep all of our friends informed and equally able to take advantage of the benefits offered by MTB and its strategic marketing partners. In some cases your permission will be implied from the nature of the service requested or transaction undertaken. Your permission will be deemed given for communications from us that are necessary to fulfill transactions and services that you request.
ACCESS TO PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
To ensure that your personally identifiable information is accurate and up to date, we encourage you to regularly review and update your information as appropriate (e.g., in the event your home or e-mail address changes, or you wish to add an additional method for us to communicate with you). Please note that in an effort to confirm the accuracy of your information, you may be asked to provide proof of identity (or other authentication materials) together with a completed access request form. Access to your information cannot be provided by telephone.
If, upon review, you wish to update your information, we will endeavor to do so in a timely manner. Occasionally, information that you request to be removed will be retained in certain files for a period of time in order to properly resolve disputes or to troubleshoot problems. In addition, some types of information may be stored indefinitely on “back up” systems or within log files due to technical constraints, or financial or legal requirements. Therefore, you should not always expect that all of your information will be immediately or completely removed from our databases in response to your request.
