What personal information we collect
General: MEI Research Corporation and its partners collect personal information necessary to respond to your requests for our customized products and services and to allow you to use the resources available on our website, including the creation and maintenance of a Customer Account and other services. Personal information includes, but is not limited to, name, physical address, email address, phone number, and any other information that itself identifies or, when tied to the above information, may identify you as a specific individual. MEI Research Corporation also uses order forms for you to order certain products. On such order forms, we collect your contact information, financial information (including credit card numbers) and demographic information.
Contests and Online Surveys: MEI Research Corporation and its partners frequently sponsor contests to give you the opportunity to win great prizes. Your participation in these contests is entirely optional. Information we collect for such contests can include contact information and demographic information. MEI Research Corporation also values the opinions and comments from all of our users, so we frequently conduct surveys online, via e-mail, or by telephone. Your participation in these surveys is entirely optional. Information we collect in online surveys will include general information on the use of our site and other demographic information, such as age and income bracket. Survey participants are anonymous unless otherwise stated in the survey.
IP Addresses: When you connect to our website, we record your IP addresses and information on the type of operating system (e.g. Windows XP, Mac OSX) and browser software (e.g. Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape) you are using. This helps us to diagnose problems with our servers and for system administration. Your IP address is also used to help gather aggregated demographic information.
With whom your information is shared and how it is used
Any information we collect may be shared with advertisers on an aggregate basis. In addition, we may from time to time hire a third party to act on our behalf for projects such as market research surveys and contest entry processing, and we will provide information to these third parties specifically for use in connection with these projects. Survey and contest participation is entirely optional. The information we provide to such third parties will be protected by a confidentiality agreement that will obligate the third party to use such information solely to complete the specific project.
In addition to the circumstances described above, we may disclose your information if required to do so by law, court order, as requested by other government or law enforcement authorities, or in the good faith belief that disclosure is otherwise necessary or advisable, including (without limitation) when we have reason to believe that disclosing the information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing interference with our rights or properties, whether intentionally or otherwise, or when anyone else could be harmed by such activities.
What choices you have over the collection and use of your information
As a user, customer, or contest entrant you will occasionally receive e-mail updates from us about important functionality changes, special offers from us and our partners, new MEI Research Corporation services and other noteworthy news items about us and our partners. We hope you will find these updates interesting and informative. Of course, if you would rather not receive them, just let us know by replying to one of the e-mails with “Remove” in the body of the e-mail or let our partners know by following their instructions. Our site also provides you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving such communications from us and our partners at the point where we request information from you. In other words, if you don’t want us or our partners to send you e-mails about our or their business, just let us know. MEI Research Corporation reserves the right to limit registration to those who will accept emails and to those who will provide the requested information.
MEI Research Corporation provides you with the ability to receive e-mail subscriptions to various services we provide. If you elect to receive such e-mail subscriptions, you can opt-out of receiving future e-mails by logging in to your account and following the appropriate links.
