Mina Group (and its affiliates) is committed to keeping our visitors informed about how we use the information we gather on our website (the “website”). By using our website or obtaining any product or service through our website, you agree to the collection and use of information as set forth in this policy. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use the website.
I. Information We Collect and How We Use It
In order to better provide you with products and services, Mina Group’s website collects two types of information: Personal Information and Non-Personal Information.
Personal Information: “Personal Information” refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are and can be used to identify, contact, or locate you. You may choose not to provide any Personal Information and you will still be able to access most portions of the website.
Examples of Personal Information you may submit include your name, mailing address, telephone number, mobile phone number, email address, and other identification and contact information.
Mina Group uses this Personal Information to provide services, conduct its business, and improve our visitors’ experience on our website.
Non Personal Information: “Non Personal Information” refers to information that does not identify a specific individual by itself or in combination with other Non Personal Information. Mina Group may collect Non Personal Information by using cookies, clear GIFs, or through the collection of traffic data.
Cookies: Mina Group’s website may send cookies to your computer or other device to allow us to monitor the individual’s use of the site. No attempts are made to identify individual users unless actions are taken to identify yourself by an “opt in,” for example:
Individual services are requested;
Application is made regarding possible employment;
Inclusion on a Mina Group mailing list is requested;
Illegal behavior or unauthorized activities are suspected; or
User identification is required under law.
Cookies are used to improve the usefulness of our website for our visitors.
Clear GIFs: At times, we work with third party service providers that employ clear GIFs (also known as pixel tags, single pixel GIFs, web beacons or action tags). Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, which are used to track the online movements of our users. We also use clear GIFs to gather and compile information so that we may better customize our services to you. Clear GIFs may identify individual users in combination with previously provided Personal Information.
Traffic Data: Mina Group automatically collects and maintains statistical information from our website’s data logs that concern website activity, navigation, network traffic flow, and volume (“Traffic Data”). Examples of Traffic Data include the following:
Name of the domain, or URL, from which the visitor accesses the Internet (e.g., “a company.com”; “a school.edu”; or “an agency.gov”);
Internet Protocol (“IP”) Number;
Type of web browser used;
Web pages visited; and
Date and time this website is visited.
Our primary purpose for collecting Traffic Data is to optimize the usefulness to visitors of our website. Traffic Data is also helpful in permitting us to improve the overall user experience on our website. Traffic Data may identify individual visitors in combination with previously provided Personal Information.
II. Sharing Your Information with Third Parties
Mina Group will not, without your consent, share your Personal Information with third parties for their commercial purposes except that Mina Group may share your Personal Information with third-parties, including certain affiliated companies (consistent with applicable laws and regulations) or other trusted businesses solely in order to enable them to perform services for Mina Group related to Mina Group’s own business purposes (subject to confidentiality and security obligations).
Law Enforcement: Mina Group may also disclose Personal Information if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on us or to protect or defend the rights, property, or safety of our users, others, and ourselves. Mina Group may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide Personal Information to the appropriate governmental authorities. We will disclose Personal Information upon receipt of a court order or subpoena or to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation. Mina Group fully cooperates with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities. Mina Group reserves the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we in good faith believe to be unlawful.
Mergers and Acquisitions: In the event of a merger, consolidation, or sale or transfer of all or substantially all of the assets or business of Mina Group, one of the assets that would generally be transferred is the information we collect from our visitors and customers (including both Personal Information and Non Personal Information). However, the use of this information by any successor entity would still be governed by the terms of this policy, as amended from time to time, including any amendment after such transaction.
