WebMCQ Pty Ltd, trading as MCQ International, is completely committed to protecting the privacy of our customers’ personal information. The following information explains our information gathering and dissemination practices.

Information Collection and Use

MCQ International is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.

Client Organisations

In certain circumstances MCQ International acts as a technology service provider for other organisations, and in such cases we may provide information to those client organisations in order to assist those organisations to offer support and services related to MCQ International’s services. In all such cases, it will be made clear to the user (through explicit statements, site branding, email communications etc.) that a separate client organisation is involved in collecting and/or utilising their information.

Mailing lists

If a user wishes to subscribe to a mailing list, we ask for contact information such as name and email address. You may choose to stop receiving future communications from us; please see the Opt-Out, Delete/ Deactivate section below.

Surveys & Contests

From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and address), and demographic information (such as post code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.

Registered Licensees

When a user registers to become an Licensee of MCQ International software and/or support, MCQ International requires contact information in order to communicate with the user. The licensee will be added to a mailing list for the purpose of announcing important news and events relevant to their licence. It is not possible for the licensee to un-subscribe themselves from these service announcements during the licence period.

Correction/Updating Personal Information:

If a user’s personally identifiable information changes (such as your post code), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user’s personal data provided to us. This can be done by contacting our Customer Support team.

Opt-Out, Delete/Deactivate

While MCQ International does not give users the opportunity to remove their information from our database, you may elect not to receive future communications or to discontinue use of our service. Note that licensees may only opt-out by terminating their licence agreement.

IP Addresses

An IP address is a number that’s automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the Web. Web servers (the computers that “serve up” Web pages) automatically identify your computer by its IP address.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Cookies

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. We may use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests and, if you choose, to save your Password so that you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit the MCQ International site.
If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site. For example, the user will not be able to participate in any contests that take place.

MCQ International does not give out personally identifiable information collected from our users to others.

Security

This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. The information collected by MCQ International is stored in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public.

Sharing

We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.

Links

This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that MCQ International is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our Homepage so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.

Contacting the Web Site

If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of this site, or your dealings with this Web site, you can contact us using one of the methods listed on our Customer Support page.
