1. What Personal Information May Be Collected?
1.1 At Megaray, it is our policy to create website content that demonstrates our respect for visitors' privacy and allows us to understand our visitors. We may request personal information from you, including your name, home address, email address or telephone number, when you interact with the Site, such as to respond to your requests or to enable you to register to use certain features of this Site. We have implemented additional privacy safeguards when we collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. For more information about how we handle children's information, please see the "Children's Privacy," in Section 6 below.
1.2 When we do collect personal information, we will use it for the purposes indicated in this policy.
1.5 Megaray may use the Site as an entry into other networked web pages and websites operated by Megaray and its subsidiaries (together, the "Transaction Sites"). Please note that an individual Transaction Site may adopt privacy terms particular to the purpose of such Transaction Site or the transaction(s) taking place on such Transaction Site. As Transaction Sites are generally affiliated with commercial transactions that you or your business may have with Megaray, particularly those which are password-protected or are subject to subscriptions, the privacy terms governing such sites may be supplemented or superseded by separate agreements.
2. Other Types of Information That May Be Collected
2.1 IP Addresses
An internet protocol address, or IP address, is automatically assigned to your computer when you access the internet, and is used by web servers to identify your computer. When you access our Site, we may log your computer's IP address, however, your personal identity will remain unknown to us, except as described in Sections 2.5 and 3.2. We log the IP addresses for system administration, for auditing the use of our Site, and for collecting statistical information for marketing and other purposes.
2.2 Cookies or Tracers
We use tracking scripts or "tracers" that recognize a unique identifier from a cookie placed on your computer by another non-Megaray website. These are used by Megaray to gauge the success of our own advertising. We do not use tracers to gather information on your use of the internet unrelated to Megaray, or to determine your personal information, and you remain anonymous to Megaray unless you choose to provide personal information, except as explained in Section 3.2.
2.3 Web Beacons
Web beacons are small files that we may place on our Site, which count the number of unique users that have visited a specific page on the Site and the number of times a given page has been displayed. This information is collected generally in the aggregate and is not linked to any personal information (except as described below).
2.4 Pixel Tags
We may use "pixel tags," or short pieces of code, to better measure the effectiveness of our content. These also allow social networks and other services to deliver content to you based on your visit to our website.
2.5 Custom URLs
We may track your visit by providing you with a unique universal resource locator, or URL, via an e-mail, a letter or other communication. When you use this unique URL, our website registers the visit. We use this information to measure the effectiveness of our advertising and other content.

3. Use of Information
3.1 Use and Sharing of Information
Generally, your personal information will not be shared with third parties not affiliated with Megaray. From time to time we may transfer, disclose or share your personal information with third parties that Megaray has engaged specifically to handle and deliver certain online activities, including, but not limited to, conducting contests and sweepstakes. Such parties will receive your personal information needed to perform these functions, but we typically do not allow them to use it for other purposes. We also may publicly disclose and use the personal information you provide Megaray in response to a contest, sweepstake, or other project consistent with our Terms and Conditions. Anonymous data collected using cookies, tracers, and web beacons may be analyzed in the aggregate to determine collective user characteristics, to understand user traffic patterns, sales information and user behavior on the Site. Such information also may be shared in the aggregate with third parties for advertising purposes, to enhance our Site, to enhance our products and services, and to analyze how and where best to use our resources.
3.2 Monitoring and Compliance
Although Megaray is under no obligation to monitor the Site, we may monitor, store, review and share with third parties any information, including your personal information, obtained on or through the Site, including if it is needed or requested to satisfy any applicable governmental law, regulation, investigation or proceeding. Megaray may also disclose your personal information (1) where such disclosure is required by law; (2) to protect Megaray's legal rights to the extent authorized or permitted by law; or (3) in an emergency where the health or safety of you or another individual may be endangered. Additionally, we may use IP addresses to identify a particular user if we believe it is needed to enforce compliance with the terms of this policy or to protect our company, employees, Site, or customers.
Megaray may transfer personal information in connection with the sale or acquisition of one or more of our businesses or subsidiaries to a different company that agrees to offer equivalent safeguards for the use and disclosure of such information.

Any information disclosed online can potentially be collected and used by others aside from the intended recipient. Thus, Megaray cannot warrant that your personal information will not be disclosed to or accessed by unauthorized parties.
5. Your Privacy Choices/Updates to Your Information
5.2 If you do not want Megaray to use your personal information to contact you for marketing or solicitation purposes, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate if you would prefer that we use a different email address or communication method. Restricting our contact methods may make it more difficult for us to keep you informed about new products, services and websites that can benefit you. These choices do not apply to transactional or relationship emails or the display of online advertising. You can revoke your choice at any time by contacting us using one of the methods provided.
6. Children's Privacy
6.1 Megaray encourages parents and guardians to spend time online with their children.

A. Any personal information we collect from children under the age of 13 will be used solely by Megaray or its agents for internal purposes only and will not be sold or otherwise distributed to third parties.
B. We will not knowingly allow children under the age of 13 to access any social media site that may exist on the Site, email accounts, or other services within Megaray that would allow them to publicly post or otherwise distribute personal information.
C. We will not knowingly ask a child under the age of 13 to divulge more information than is needed to participate in any activity, game, or service.
D. We will not knowingly keep any personal information that is inadvertently included in a child's email submission, help inquiry, or other one-time request, if we know that the child is under the age of 13. Information will be automatically purged or purged immediately after the issue has been resolved.
E. We will not knowingly post any personal information that is inadvertently included in a child's submission to a general audience contribution area if we know that the child is under the age of 13. These submissions will be deleted and handled anonymously thereafter.
F. We will not knowingly provide any direct link to websites that are unsuitable for children or teens.
G. Upon request, we will provide a parent or guardian with a description of the information that may have been provided about their child during a registration process for a program, service or contest on the Site.
6.3 There are several instances in which we collect information from children, such as:
A. Requesting the contact information of a parent or guardian for the sole purpose of notifying the parent or guardian;
B. Collecting children's contact information on a one-time basis, such as when they enter a contest or ask Megaray a question using the "contact us" link on our Sites. We will use this information on a one-time basis solely to directly respond to the child's request. We will purge the child's contact information from our systems when we have fulfilled the request, such as after we respond to the child's email or when a contest is over. We will not use children's information to re-contact them or for any other purpose other than fulfilling their requests;
C. Collecting a child's contact information and the contact information of his/her parent or guardian solely to respond directly more than once to a specific request from the child (for example, to satisfy the request for a newsletter subscription). In this instance, the parent or guardian will be notified that the child made such a request and be informed of the information provided by the child. The parent or guardian will have an opportunity at any time to revoke the child's request (i.e., unsubscribe). We will not use the child's personal information to re-contact the child for any other purpose; and
D. Using cookies to collect non-personally-identifiable information on our child-directed Sites for analytics and internal operations purposes.
