What Kind of Information Does MBS Collect?
Our primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide you with a positive experience while you use our Portal, to hear your comments, to respond to your inquiries, and to provide you with access to our services. MBS will collect both personal information (“Personal Information”) and information about your use of the Portal (“Browsing Information”). Personal Information includes your name and email address and your active directory single sign-on ID.
Browsing Information includes: 1) technical information, such as the date and time you access the Portal, and your Internet protocol address, and your browser name, and a machine token; and 2) service usage information, such as records and history about transactions and preferences, and other feedback you supply to us. Also, when you register or create an online account/profile with us, contact customer service, participate in our surveys, or send us testimonials, feedback or submissions, you are providing us with your personal information.
We also utilize cookies. Cookies are small files that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser to enable us to recognize you when you return to our Portal. Cookies let us identify you to provide you a personalized experience on our Portal. We use cookie and web beacon technology to track which pages on our sites our visitors view. Most Internet browsers permit you to erase or block cookies. If you configure your browser to remove or reject cookies, though, you will not be able to use the full functionality of our Portal.

Does MBS Share My Information With Third Parties?
We will share Browsing Information with select third parties on an anonymous basis (that is, in a way that does not connect your Browsing Information to your Personal Information or disclose your Personal Information in any fashion).
If MBS, or substantially all of our assets, are sold, or MBS reorganizes or merges into another company, then customer information, including Personal Information, will likely be one of the transferred assets.
On rare occasions, we may be required to disclose your Personal Information as required by law and as necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us. Or we may need to do so to protect our customer’s rights.
Is My Information Secure With MBS?
MBS uses security measures to protect the privacy of your personal information. We limit the employees and contractors that can access your personal information and require these employees and contractors to adhere to a confidentiality policy. We also use technological security measures to protect your personal information. However, transmissions over the Internet are not completely secure, and any information you send to or through our Portal may be accessible by others. We cannot guarantee our security measures.
You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your username, password, and any account information. It is important for you to be responsible and protect your username, password, and device against unauthorized users. It is important to sign off when you have completed using a device accessible by others.
How does MBS Protect Kids’ Privacy?
We are concerned about the safety of children when they use the Internet and will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 or classified as a minor under applicable law. Users of our Portal must be at least 18 years old. If you are under 13 years old or otherwise classified as a minor, you should not provide information to us without the involvement of a parent or guardian. If a child has provided us with personal information, that child’s parent or guardian should contact us (see below) to delete such information from our records.
We ask that you not send us, and you not disclose, any sensitive Personal Information (e.g., information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health or medical condition or criminal background) on or through the Portal or otherwise to us.
