Privacy Policy

Created/Updated Date: June 19, 2018

This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) sets forth the privacy practices for The MBK Group, Inc, which is independently owned and operated.

This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by or through mbkgroupinc.com.

  1. INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT

We may obtain certain personal information through our Website. The types of personal information we may collect includes:
a) Contact information you voluntarily provide to us, such as your name, postal address, e-mail address, and telephone number;
b) Names, postal addresses, e-mail addresses and telephone numbers of others to whom you ask us to send information;
c) Other personal information you may provide to us
d) Improve the quality of your visit to our site

 

In addition, when you visit our websites, we may collect certain information by automated means, such as cookies and web beacons. The information we collect in this manner includes IP address, browser characteristics, device characteristics, operating system, language preferences, referring URLs, information on actions taken on our Websites, and dates and times of visits to our websites. A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A “web beacon” (also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag, or clear GIF) links web pages to web servers and their cookies and may be used to transmit information collected through cookies back to a web server. Through these automated collection methods, we obtain “clickstream data,” which is a log of content on which a visitor clicks while browsing a website. As the visitor clicks through the website, a record of the action may be collected and stored. We may link certain data elements we have collected through automated means, such as your browser information, with other information we have obtained about you to let us know, for example, whether you have opened an e-mail we sent to you. Your browser may tell you how to be notified when you receive certain types of cookies or how to restrict or disable certain types of cookies. Please note, however, that without cookies you may not be able to use all the features of our websites. Please further note that the websites are not designed to respond to “do not track” signals received from web browsers.

If you use website features operated by third-party social networking services (such as Facebook or Twitter), we may receive information you have made available to those services, including the geographic location of your mobile device and other information about you (such as name, email address, gender, locale, time zone, languages, social media profile URL, personal website URL, biographical information, birthday, photo, list of devices, education history, work history, hometown, interests, current city, political views, favorite athlete and teams, relationship status and information, religion, name of significant other, and certain security settings information) and your contacts on those services. Some of these social networking services allow you to push content from our websites to your contacts or to pull information about your contacts so you can connect with them on our Website. Some of these services will also facilitate your registration on our website or enhance or personalize your experiences on our website. You should make sure you understand the information your third-party social networking services may make available to us. We may use and disclose the personal information we receive from or through third-party social networking services as described in this Privacy Policy.

  1. HOW WE MAY USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We may use the information we obtain through the website to:
a) Offer and provide products and services to you;
b) Process and collect payments for gift cards;
c) Communicate about, and administer your participation in special events, programs, surveys, contests, sweepstakes, and other offers or promotions;
d) Send information to others if you ask us to do so;
e) Respond to and communicate with you about your requests, questions and comments;
f) Manage your application for employment with the BA Group℠or any of its member entities and contact you in connection with potential employment opportunities;

j) Protect against, identify and prevent fraud and other criminal activity, claims and other liabilities; and

In addition, we use information collected online through cookies, local shared objects (also known as “Flash cookies”), web beacons, and other automated means for purposes such as: (i) customizing our users’ visits to the Websites, (ii) delivering content (including advertising) tailored to our users’ interests and the manner in which our users browse the Websites, and (iii) managing our business. We may supplement data we collect through automated means with information about your location (such as your zip code) to provide you with content that may be of interest to you. We also use this information to help diagnose technical and service problems, administer the website, identify users of the website, and gather demographic information about our users. We may use clickstream data to determine how much time users spend on web pages of the website, how users navigate through the website, and how we may tailor the website to better meet the needs of our users. To identify local shared objects/Flash cookies on your computer and adjust your settings, please visit: www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager.html.

We use third-party web analytics services on the website, such as Google Analytics. The analytics providers that administer these services use technologies such as cookies, web server logs, and web beacons to help us analyze how visitors use the website. The information collected through these means (including IP addresses) may be disclosed to these analytics providers, who use such information to evaluate use of the website. To learn more about Google Analytics and how to opt out, please visit: www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html.

We may combine information we collect from you with information we receive from third parties and use it for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. We also may use the information we obtain about you in other ways for which we provide specific notice at the time of collection.

  1. INFORMATION WE MAY SHARE

We do not sell or otherwise share personal information about you, except as described in this Privacy Policy. We share personal information with third parties who perform services on our behalf based on our instructions. These third parties are not authorized by us to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or comply with legal requirements. We also may share the personal information we obtain with our member entities, affiliates, and joint marketing partners.

We also may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law, regulation or legal process (such as a court order or subpoena), (ii) in response to requests by government agencies, such as law enforcement authorities, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity. We reserve the right to transfer any information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (including in the event of a reorganization, dissolution, or liquidation).

  1. HOW WE SECURE YOUR INFORMATION

We maintain administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal information you provide against accidental, unlawful, or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure, or use. When you submit sensitive information via our website, your information is protected both online and offline.

We also protect your personal information offline. Only employees who have a need to know the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to your personal information. The computers/servers in which we store personal information are kept in a secure environment.

  1. PRIVACY FOR CHILDREN

Our website is not directed to children under the age of thirteen and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 on our website. If we become aware that we have inadvertently received personal information from a visitor to any of our website under the age of 13, we will delete the information from our records.

  1. YOUR OPTIONS FOR LIMITING THE SHARING OF INFORMATION

We offer you certain choices about how we communicate with you, what information we collect from you, and how you can prevent the sharing of certain information.
