Non-personally identifiable information about how you and others use our website (such as referring links, page views, or clicks that lead you to other websites) may be collected and used for marketing or other purposes. This information is provided anonymously and will never be used to identify individual users.

We may occasionally provide links on our websites or on social media platforms to third-party websites. These sites and their owners have separate privacy policies and are not under the control or influence of MCA.
