Our privacy is important to us, and we imagine that you feel the same way. We explicitly ask you when we need information that personally identifies you ("Personal Information"). When you sign up for membership with MOC, we agree to not sell, rent, or distribute your Personal Information in any way (however, remember that MOC is a public directory and other members can see whatever information you choose to make public).

Security: The MOC will work diligently to protect the security of your Personal Information. Your data is kept in a secure environment protected from access by unauthorized parties. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access by storing your password in a secure location and ensuring you log off when finished visiting MOC using a shared computer.

E-mail: We use your Personal Information to operate MOC and we may occasionally contact you with your consent. MOC will never intentionally send unsolicited e-mail messages that could legitimately be construed as spam. All e-mails sent from MOC will be sent only to those that have opted-in and will contain opt-out instructions, should you decide to remove yourself from our e-mail distribution list.

Statistics: Your information is also used in aggregate form on the MOC web site statistics page to allow other web site users to get a better understanding of who makes up the club, without revealing any individual data.

Updating & Removing Personal Information: MOC provides you with a way in which you can alter or remove the Personal Information listed in the member network, via a profile update page in the member area. If you wish to have your membership registration removed, simply log into the member area and request that your account be closed.

Surveys: MOC may periodically conduct individual voluntary member surveys. We encourage our members to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve the club. The responses we collect from online surveys are anonymous.

Cookies: Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored in a browser-related file on your computer's hard drive when you use portions of our web site.

IP Address: The MOC uses your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our web site. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information. This information is used in a way that it does not display information that identifies individual members.

Third Party Links: MOC contains links to a variety of third party sites to enhance the member experience. MOC has no control of either the content or privacy policies of such sites, nor should such links be considered an endorsement of these sites except where otherwise noted.

Abuse: We may provide your personal information to the police or other investigating agencies to assist them in the invesigation of any suspected violations of law. We also have the right to share your name and contact information with our attorneys, in the event of serious violations of conduct.
