Privacy Policy Statement



1.0 Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting our members' privacy and we will not collect any personal information about you as a member unless you provide it voluntarily. Any personal information you communicate to us is kept within MACC itself in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2001.



2.0 The Data Protection Act 2001

The Data Protection Act 2001 was enacted in December 2001 and came fully into force on the 15th July 2003. MACC therefore has the legal duty to respect and protect any personal information collected from you and will abide by such duty. We bind ourselves to take all necessary measures to prevent unauthorised access to this information and will not pass on your details, collected from you as a member, to any third party unless you give us your consent to do so.



3.0 Information Collected

MACC collects contact or feedback information from its members together with web page download information and site usage information.



3.1 Contact or Feedback

When you fill the "CONTACT US" form, we use the personal information submitted in the form only to reply to your message. This personal information will not be kept longer than necessary and will therefore be deleted once the feedback requirement is met.



3.2 Download Information

The website server does collect some generic information which is then used to allow us to understand how the website is performing and to decide how we can change the website to improve the way it delivers information to the visitor. Information collected includes a count of the number of visitors, the pages visited, their country of origin and which website referred them to this site. We also keep a record of which web browser you are using and the operating system in use on your computer. No information collected can be linked to an individual and your total anonymity is guaranteed.



3.3 Site Usage Information creates "cookies" for each session when you visit our web site. These cookies store information that is sent to your browser - along with a web page - when you access a web page.



4.0 Links to other Web Sites

Our site has a number of links to other local and international organisations and agencies. In some cases, for the benefit of the visitor, it may be required that we link to other web sites of other organisations after permission is obtained from them respectively. It is important for you to note that upon linking to another site, you are no longer on our site and you become subject to the privacy policy of the new site.



5.0 Changes to this Privacy Policy

If there are any changes to this privacy policy, we will replace this page with an updated version. It is therefore in your own interest to check the "Privacy Policy" page any time you access our web site so as to be aware of any changes which may occur from time to time.
