Session-based cookies last only while your browser is open and are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Persistent cookies last until you or your browser delete them or until they expire.

  • Strictly Necessary Cookies,
  • Performance Cookies,

How is MCPC using cookies?

Some cookies are associated with your account and personal information in order to remember that you are logged in. Other cookies are not tied to your account or collect personal information but are unique and allow MCPC to carry out analytics and customization, among other, similar activities.

Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit a Site or use our Services, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience that is consistent with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions faster and more secure.

Categories of Use

Authentication – If you’re signed into our Services, cookies help MCPC show you the right information and personalize your experience.

Security – MCPC uses cookies to enable and support our security features, as well as to help MCPC detect malicious activity.

Preferences, features and services – Cookies can tell MCPC which language you prefer and what your communications preferences are. They can help you fill out forms on the Sites more easily. They also provide you with features, insights, and customized content.

Marketing – MCPC may use cookies to help MCPC deliver marketing campaigns and track their performance. Similarly, our partners may use cookies to provide MCPC with information about your interactions with their services; however, use of those third-party cookies would be subject to the service provider’s policies.

MCPC also uses cookies to understand, improve, and research products, features, and services, including creating logs and recording when you access our Sites and Services from different devices, such as your work computer or mobile device.

How are cookies used for advertising purposes?

Cookies and other ad technology such as beacons, pixels, and tags help MCPC market more effectively to users that MCPC and our partners believe may be interested in MCPC. They also help provide MCPC with aggregated auditing, research, and reporting, and know when content has been shown to you.

What can you do if you don’t want cookies to be set or want them to be removed, or if you want to opt out of internet-based targeting?

Some people prefer not to allow cookies, which is why most browsers give you the ability to manage cookies to suit you. In some browsers, you can set up rules to manage cookies on a site-by-site basis, giving you more fine-grained control over your privacy. What this means is that you can disallow cookies from all sites except those that you trust.

Browser manufacturers provide help pages relating to cookie management in their products.

If you limit the ability of websites and applications to set cookies, you may worsen your overall user experience and/or lose the ability to access the services, since it will no longer be personalized to you. It may also stop you from saving customized settings like login information.

Does MCPC respond to do not track signals?

Our Sites and Services do not collect personal information about your online activities over time or across third-party websites or online services. Therefore, “do not track” signals transmitted from web browsers do not apply to our Sites or Services, and MCPC does not alter any of our data collection and use practices upon receipt of such a signal.
