We understand that your personal information is important, and we endeavor to secure and protect it to ensure that user account information is kept private.
What do we collect?
When you visit our sites or use our services, some data is automatically collected.
For example, when you visit our web sites, your computer's operating system, IP address, access times, browser type and language, and the web site (if any) that directed you to our site are recorded automatically using a web beacon.
This data is used in aggregate to identify trends in the usage of our site, enabling us to optimize our site to better serve you.
If you create an account to make use of our services, we also request personal information such as your name, address, contact information, and other personal information needed to maintain our relationship.
If you become a member of Mind's Eye Society, additional information, such as records of rewards you have earned or offices you have held, may be collected and maintained based on your history and activity within the club.
We will also record the details of any of your transactions on our web site or through other channels.
You may choose not to provide us with certain information but you may not be able to access all of the benefits of membership.
How do we use your information?
Automatically collected data is used to identify trends in the usage of our site, enabling us to optimize our site to better serve you.
For example, it can tell us which areas of our site are popular, and which content generates more interest, allowing us to develop those areas or release more similar content.
Personal data submitted to us is used to process transactions, such as purchases; or delivering services that you have requested, such as the applications you have access to as a member.
We may also use collected information to respond to your comments and questions and provide customer service.
We may occasionally send you email, such as a reminder when your membership is about to expire.
We may also contact you to request feedback about your experience with our site or services and learn about your preferences or interests.
You will always have the option to opt out of these emails, or any other email that we are not required by law to send.
How do we share your information?

- With your explicit consent, we may share your information with a third party for their own marketing purposes, or to enable them to deliver services to you, subject to their own privacy policies.
- We will share information as needed to comply with laws or respond to judicial proceedings or as we believe is necessary to protect the rights, property, or persons of Mind's Eye Society, including our agents, members, partners.
- Any information that you submit to message boards, forums, chat areas, or mailing lists may be shared with others who participate in the same resources. Personal information submitted via these resources is at your own risk and you assume full responsibility for providing any information through these resources.

Certain officers will have access to additional information such as your email address and certain records of your participation within the club. We will take reasonable effort to prevent this information from being misused.
