This information includes information such as page views, date and time of visit, geographic information, time on site etc.  This information is not personally identifiable to any single user unless you have voluntarily given us permission to collect such data. MBLocal.com may share anonymous website data with 3rd parties.  We do not divulge any information about an individual user to a third party unless required by court order to participate in a legal investigation.

 

Privacy Policy

The use of our online contact form requires users to enter personal information for the purposes of business correspondence. This is limited to business discussions and does not give us permission to send marketing material without your expressed permission.

Usage tracking

We track user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. We do break down overall usage statistics according to a user’s domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user’s browser).

We do record the search terms that users enter in our Search function, but this information is not associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.

Cookies

We may place a text file called a “cookie” in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain Personal Information although it will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided. But, the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can’t read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. MBLocal.com uses cookies to track user traffic patterns (as described above).

You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you’ve set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, you will receive the warning message with each cookie. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use this site. However, you do need cookies to participate actively in any message boards, forums, polling and surveys.
