DISCLOSURE:

Non-personal information may be disclosed by MNF for any purpose. MNF may share Personal Information with third parties to fulfill your request, to comply with our obligations under any applicable laws or regulations, or to provide other services that may be of interest to you.

Additionally, any such information may be transferred to a third party in the event of a sale, acquisition, merger or bankruptcy involving MNF or any subsidiary or section thereof.

If you do not wish for MNF to disclose your information in accordance with this policy, please do not submit any Personal Information to MNF. If you believe special circumstances warrant special treatment of your Personal Information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

CHILDREN’S ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT:

Although MNF is a 501(c) Charitable Non-Profit Organization exempt from the requirements of the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), MNF is committed to the protection of the online privacy of individuals under the age of 13 (“Children”) as well as parental control over information collected from Children online.

The MNF Website provides a platform that enables certain users, other than Children, to make a financial contribution to MNF online. MNF does not permit children to make contributions and therefore does not collect or use the personal information of Children.

The personal information of Children is collected by MNF if an application for financial assistance by MNF is submitted online by an adult. Such applications may only be submitted by the parents or guardians of children, and the information provided therein is used solely for the purpose of considering the applicant for financial aid by MNF.

Parents or guardians who are concerned about information possibly submitted to MNF by their Children should contact themnfwebmaster@gmail.com and someone will promptly assist in the removal of such data.

TERRITORIALITY:

Our computer systems are currently based in the United States, where data protection and privacy regulations may or may not be to the same level of protection as in other parts of the world. BY USING THE WEBSITE, YOU UNEQUIVOCALLY AND UNAMBIGUOUSLY CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION, PROCESSING, AND STORAGE WITHIN THE UNITED STATES OF ANY PERSONAL AND NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED OR OBTAINED BY MNF IN CONNECTION WITH SUCH USE, AND AGREE AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT UNITED STATES LAW GOVERNS ANY SUCH COLLECTION AND PROCESSING.

UPDATE AND OPT-OUT:

If you would like to update any information you have sent to MNF, or if you do not want to receive information from MNF, please contact us at themnfwebmaster@gmail.com.

MNF will also take reasonable efforts to honor any request you make to forgo contacts with you in the future or delete your information. Please note that if you make an opt-out request, MNF will retain your contact information to make efforts to ensure that you are not contacted in the future. Additionally, if you request MNF to refrain from sharing your information with third parties, MNF may be unable to fulfill various requests you may make.

CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS:

Beginning on January 1, 2005, California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as S.B. 27, or the Shine the Light law, allows California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosures in the prior calendar year, if any, of their personally identifiable information to third parties for their own direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please contact us at themnfwebmaster@gmail.com with “Request for California Privacy” in the letter subject line. You must include sufficient detail for us to locate your file; at a minimum, your name and postal address.

We will attempt to provide you with the requested information within thirty (30) days of receipt. We reserve our right not to respond to requests sent more than once in a calendar year, or requests submitted to an address other than the one posted in this notice. Please note that the California Shine the Light law does not cover all information sharing. Our disclosure only includes information covered by the law.
