What personally identifiable information does MIR collect and what does MIR do with it?
Events: If you register to participate in a MIR event using our event registration site, we will ask you for your name and e-mail address. We will store this information in order to send you future event invitations.
Website Registration: If you choose to customize the MIR website to your needs by becoming a registered MIR website user, we will require, at a minimum, your email address. We will retain your email address and the preferences you select so that you will not have to reenter the information each time you access our website. The preferences you select may include requests for email, news, and information on specific events. Once you become a registered user, you will be able to access your profile by entering your user name and password each time you use the MIR website.
Contributions: If you wish to make a gift to MIR to assist MIR in fulfilling its mission, we ask you to provide your name, address, telephone number, email address, and credit card information. We maintain a record of your contribution and keep a record of your financial transaction. Credit card numbers are held only until the charge can be processed (usually several minutes), then the number is only available to our financial customer service staff for purposes of problem resolution.
Requests: If you submit an online request for MIR information, or submit a question through a “contact us” query, we may have to gather more than your email address from you to respond to your request. Such information will vary with the request but may include requests for your name and telephone number.
