MOTY employs physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard the security and integrity of any personal information collected from our applicants and users of any of our internet sites. We use sound data management principles whenever we transmit or receive any personal information.
The MOTY website and the MOTY Constant Contact account may now or in the future collect the following types of personal information: names, postal and e-mail addresses, phone and facsimile numbers, and unsorted commentary like feedback and complaint information. We may also collect information about businesses, some of which could constitute personal information, as well as personal information from individuals acting solely in their business capacity. MOTY will never collect or maintain information from any person actually known to be under the age of 13, and no part of our site is structured to attract anyone under the age of 13.
Unless we obtain in advance the specific permission of the applicant or site user, MOTY will not use personal information for any purpose other than that for which the applicant or site user submitted it. At certain site locations where the MOTY collects personal information, applicants and site users may be given the opportunity to subscribe to a mailing list that would used to provide information about the MOTY Award or other MOTY-related property/products/services. At any time Applicants and site users can add or remove their contact information from any MOTY mail or email list by contacting us.
