PERSONAL INFORMATION PRIVACY

Unless provided voluntarily, we do not collect personal information.


However, when you submit a resume, request information, or sign up for a service, such as our newsletter, you will have to provide some information such as name, E-mail, phone number and any other information included in your submission.


We require clients to provide the same information as other visitors. Though, as a client, you will be assigned a secure password for access to the site. Additionally, MESSAGE Advertising and Design Inc. requests that a valid billing address be provided.


MESSAGE Advertising and Design Inc. reserves all rights to personal information but will not trade, sell or share any data received.


INFORMATION COLLECTION FOR OFFLINE SUBSCRIBERS

In order to sign up for mailing lists, you must provide a first name, last name, zip code, and or E-mail address by an off-line method.


This information is used to contact you with mailings and contest information related to areas in which you have expressed interest. Contests and lists are the property of each MESSAGE Advertising and Design Inc. client, created and delivered in the MESSAGE Advertising and Design Inc. system. Clients are fully responsible for their own individual lists and contests.


MESSAGE Advertising and Design Inc. employees may access lists or contest information for administrative purposes, but no mailings will be sent to subscribers or entrants solely to promote MESSAGE Advertising and Design Inc. services or products.


SECURITY

MESSAGE Advertising and Design Inc. takes every precaution to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the Web site, your information is protected both online and off.


All our employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, they are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our clients' information is protected.

SURVEYS & CONTESTS

MESSAGE Advertising and Design Inc. requests personally identifying information for surveys or contests. Participation in surveys or contests is completely voluntary, and disclosure of information is voluntary.

Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.


Your personally identifiable information is not shared with third parties unless we give you option and prior notice. Although we may use an intermediary to conduct surveys or contests, they may not use your personally identifiable information for any other purposes.

CHOICE/OPT-OUT

List subscribers who wish to remove themselves from a mailing list and thereby receive no further mailings have two options.


First, you can reply to a list mailing with the subject head "Unsubscribe".


Second, you may click on the "Unsubscribe" link provided in each list mailing.


Contest entrants may opt-out of a contest by clicking on the "Remove" link found in the initial contest mailing. Or, you may log in to the contest site and click on "Remove".


SUBSCRIPTION AND MEMBERSHIP

We send new list members and contest entrants welcome messages. List members will receive list mailings as frequently or infrequently as the list owner chooses to send them out. List subscribers are free to opt out of lists at any time, without penalty.


If you reply to a list mailing with 'remove' in the subject area, and the "From" address is not your Email address, the MESSAGE Advertising and Design Inc. system automatically removes them from the system. If the "From" address is your E-mail address, then MESSAGE Advertising and Design Inc. will be responsible for manually honoring your request.


If you click on the "Unsubscribe" link found at the bottom of the E-mail message, the MESSAGE Advertising and Design Inc. system automatically removes you from the list.


Contest entrants are free to withdraw their entries in contests at any time without penalty. See below for our opt-out choices.


CONTACT FORM

We communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account. We will communicate with you e.g. by email or telephone consistent with your requests.
