This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal Information we receive from users of the Site. We use your personal Information only for providing and improving the Site.
By using the MRC site, you understand and agree to the terms of this policy. This site is owned by MRC and may be accessed in the United Kingdom and abroad. For data protection purposes, MRC is the controller and, unless otherwise noted, is also the processor of data. Data collected may be retained, and may be stored, processed, accessed, and used in jurisdictions whose privacy laws may be different and less protective than those of your home jurisdiction.
Your personal data
MRC collects certain kinds of data, such as the website that referred you to us, your IP address, browser type and language, and access times. We also may collect navigational data, including data about the pages you view, the links you click, and other actions taken in connection with the site.
We may combine your visit and navigational data with personal data that you provide. You may always choose not to provide personal data, but if you so choose, certain products and services may not be available to you. Personal data (e.g. your username and password, your name, your mailing address, email address, and phone number) is collected when you register. Additional personal data is collected to process the ‘Events’ page or to provide you with products and services. Limited demographic data, such as industry you work in, is sometimes collected and may be linked to your personal data.
Use of your personal data
MRC collects and uses your personal data to operate and improve the site, to process your transactions, to perform research and analysis aimed at improving our services and technologies, and to display content that is customised to your interests and preferences.
We also use your personal data to communicate with you. We may send transaction-related communications such as welcome letters, emails to inform you of new products or services or other data that may be of interest. If you do not wish to receive marketing emails, you may adjust your “Personal Data Preferences” as described below or follow the “unsubscribe” instructions included within each email communication.
Personal data collected by MRC may be stored and processed in the UK or any other country in which MRC or its affiliates, subsidiaries, contractors or agents maintain facilities, and by using our sites or services, you consent to any such transfer of data outside of your country.
Sharing of your personal data
We may share your personal data with service providers who perform services on our behalf. For example, we may hire other companies to handle the processing of hosting websites, to assist in direct marketing, to conduct audits, etc. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal data they need to provide the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the data and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose.
We reserve the right to disclose your personal data if required to do so by law, or in the good-faith belief that such action is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process, respond to claims, or protect the rights, property or safety of MRC, affiliates, employees, customers, or the public.
Accessing your personal data
If you would like to review or revise data that you previously provided to us, you may access your data in the “My Account” section of the website. Your account agent can also assist you in making any changes, as well as in exercising your right to have your personal data deleted. If you need additional assistance, please contact us you can expect a response from us within 14 calendar days. Please be advised that you cannot change your username without re-registering.

Security of your personal data
The security of your personal data is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to help protect your personal data. If a password is used to protect your account and personal data, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential.
Forums and other interactive services
Our website may include discussion forums or other interactive areas or services, including blogs, chat rooms, bulletin boards, message boards, online hosting or storage services, or other areas or services in which you or third parties create, post or store any content, messages, comments, materials or other items on the sites (“Interactive Areas”). If you use an Interactive Area, you should be aware that these areas are open to the public and any personal data you post or provide at registration may be viewable by others. We are not responsible for personal data you submit in connection with the Interactive Areas, nor are we responsible for how others might use that data, including to send you unsolicited messages. Interactive Area postings may be retained indefinitely. If at any time you would like to remove a posting, please email MRC. Keep in mind that removal of a posting from an Interactive Area does not mean that the posting will be deleted from our systems.
If you choose to use our email referral services to tell a friend about our products or services (including images in your Lightbox, promotional campaigns, new websites etc.), we will ask you for your friend’s name and email address. We will use that data to send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site and review the product or service you have selected. We may use a third-party provider to administer this function, but any such third party provider may only use the data submitted to facilitate this one-time email.
We do not intend to solicit or collect personal data from anyone under the age of 18. If you are under 18, you should not use or enter data on this site, including without limitation, any Interactive Areas of the site.
We may link to websites, including those of our third-party content providers that have different privacy policies and practises from those disclosed here. We assume no responsibility for the policies or practises of such linked sites and encourage you to become acquainted with them prior to use.
