In an effort to improve the quality of the Site, the Service and the App, we track information provided to us by your browser when you view the Site or use the Service or the App, such as your Internet service provider, the website you came from (known as the "referring URL"), the type of browser you use, your operating system, the device from which you connected to the Service, the time and date of access, the Site pages viewed, time spent at our Site, the sites visited just before and just after our Site, and other information that does not personally identify you. We track this information using cookies, or small text files which include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are a feature of web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.) software that allows web servers to recognize the computer used to access a site. They are small pieces of data that are stored by a Member's web browser on one site to simplify subsequent interactions with that site by the same Member or to use the information to streamline the Member's transaction on related web pages. This makes it easier for a Member to move from site to site and to complete transactions over the Internet. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalized.
Material World may use both persistent and session cookies; persistent cookies remain on your computer after you close your session and until you delete them, while session cookies expire when you close your browser.
We may also use or disclose information collected on the Site or the App to resolve disputes or investigate problems. We may disclose or access such information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, or if we consider it necessary to maintain the Service and improve our products and services.
We implement security measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access, disclosure or accidental loss or destruction of Non-Personal Information and Personal Information. We further protect your information from potential security breaches by implementing certain technological security measures including encryption, firewalls and secure socket layer technology. However, these measures do not guarantee that your information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software. Although we take reasonable steps to safeguard and prevent unauthorized access to your personally identifiable information, we can't be responsible for the acts of those who gain unauthorized access, and we make no warranty, express, implied or otherwise, that we will prevent such access. By using visiting the Site and using the Service or the App, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks. Communications you may have with us via email or U.S. Mail may not be secure unless we advise you that security measures are in place prior to your sending information. Therefore, if you choose to communicate with us through these means, you are assuming the risk of doing so and we request that you do not send or post sensitive information through these means.
