While there is no such thing as “perfect security” on the Internet, MRM takes commercially reasonable precautions to protect the Personally Identifiable Information that you provide to MRM when you register as a member on the Web site. We use SSL encryption technology on the Web site and a secure server to encrypt information transmitted between your browsers and our server.

Our security policies are reviewed periodically and revised as required. The servers for the Web site that contain Personally Identifiable Information are stored in a physically secure and climate controlled off-site facility. We protect against data loss by backing-up data, performing, consistency checks and restricting access to information on our servers. It is important to remember that whatever you transmit or disclose online can be collected and used by others or unlawfully intercepted by third parties. No data transmission over the Internet can be 100% secure.

Companies that advertise on our Web site do not have access to Personally Identifiable Information that you do not post in chat rooms, forums, or message boards on the Web site or to our cookies on the Web site. Those advertisers may themselves set and access their own cookies on your computer if you choose to have cookies enabled in your browser and you access their Web sites. Third parties’ use of cookies is subject to their own privacy policies.
