Collection of Personal Information

MCOA will not collect any personal information about you (such as your name, address, email address and/or telephone number) unless you knowingly and voluntarily provide it to us.  In the course of your interactions with MCOA or the MCOA Websites, we may collect or come into possession of your personal information in order to communicate with you or provide you with services.  For example, if you communicate with MCOA by email, we will come into possession of your email address.

MCOA does not sell, share, rent or otherwise disclose personal information to any third party in the ordinary course of business.  However, certain third parties performing services on MCOA’s behalf (such as fulfillment operators administering contests or challenges) may request personal information from you, or have access to personal information we collect, for the purpose of doing their jobs.

MCOA will not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of thirteen without parental consent.  If you are under the age of thirteen, please ask a parent or adult caregiver to contact us.

From time to time, MCOA may contact you via email for the purpose of providing announcements, updates, alerts, confirmations, or other general communications.  You may opt out of these communications at any time.
