It is the policy of the Mercantile Exchange (MX) that we will collect no personal information about you when you visit our website unless you choose to provide that information to us.
Here is how we handle information about your visit to our website:
If you do nothing during your visits but browse throughout our website, read pages, or download information, we will gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you personally. We automatically collect and store the following information about your visit:
- The Internet domain and Internet address of the computer you are using;
- The type of browser and operating system used to access our website;
- The date and time you access our website;
- The pages you visit; and
- If you linked to our website from another website, the address to that website.
We use this information to help us make our website more useful to visitors, by learning about the number of visitors to our website and the types of technology our visitors are using. We do not track or record personal information about individuals.
If You Send Us Personal Information
If you choose to provide us with personal information, as in an E-mail to the MX or someone else in the office, or by filling out an electronic form with your personal information and submitting it to us through our website, we use that information only for the purposes you have authorized. We treat E-mails the same way we treat letters sent to us. While we may be required to maintain certain documents in accordance with our records retention policies, we do not collect personal information for any purpose other than to respond to you.
We request information when you fill out web forms and correspond with us. Forms that request information from you will clearly indicate information that is required – such as a name and mailing address – and any information that is optional. It will be apparent when you are on a part of our website that requires personal information, because we will ask for it.
