Collection and Use of Personal Information
In addition, certain Personal Information may be submitted via online forms on the MAACO website necessary to provide services offered by the site. After you have entered Personal Information into a form or data field on the website, MAACO may use certain identifying technologies to allow that web site to “remember” your personal preferences, such as sections of the website that you use frequently. MAACO may also use this Personal Information for other business purposes, such as to offer you the opportunity to receive notices regarding MAACO’s products or services, to invite you to participate in surveys about our products, or to notify you about special promotions. Other uses of Personal Information include internal review of the number of visitors to the website, but only in aggregate and non-personally identifiable form.
MAACO takes reasonable steps to maintain appropriate physical, technical and administrative security to help prevent loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure or modification of Personal Information. Although MAACO makes reasonable efforts to protect your Personal Information, please be mindful that no data transmission system can be fully guaranteed.
If you supply MAACO with your postal address online, you will only receive the information that you requested be sent to your address.

If you do not want to receive email from MAACO in the future, please let MAACO know by mail or by replying to any email we send with “unsubscribe” in the subject line.
Your Choices Regarding Personal Information
We may send you other types of transactional and relationship e-mail communications, such as service updates or administrative notices without offering you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving them. Please note that opting out of receipt of promotional e-mail communications will only affect future activities or communications from us. If we have already provided your information to a third party (with your prior consent) before you changed your preferences or updated your information, you will have to change your preferences directly with that third party.
Ad Server Companies
MAACO does not partner with or have special relationships with any ad server companies, such as DoubleClick, HitBox or Adforce, which allow cookies for purposes of personal data collection. Such companies sell advertising, analyze website effectiveness, help increase clients’ online revenues, and place or monitor banner ads and may engage in spam tactics or black hat tactics. This kind of cookie is capable of tracking your movement from one website to another throughout the world wide web, accumulating personal data, and sometimes making it available for sale to third parties.
Consistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, MAACO is committed to protecting children’s privacy on the Internet. MAACO does not intend to, or knowingly, collect, use, or disclose Personal Information (including online contact information) of children under the age of 18, and we encourage parents or guardians to supervise their children’s online activities and to consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a kid-friendly online environment. These tools can also prevent children from disclosing online their names, addresses and other personal information without your permission. If MAACO becomes aware of a child under the age of 18 attempting to register on this website, MAACO will not accept the registration. Once MAACO becomes aware of a child under the age of 18 providing Personal Information, we will attempt to delete that information. If your child has provided Personal Information, please contact us so it can be deleted. If you are under the age of 18, do not provide MAACO with any Personal Information.
