Notice of Collection

We want you to know that we may collect personal information actively and passively, and we sometimes obtain information from third-party sources. We may collect personal information and use it inside our site. We may anonymize some of the data. For example, we receive certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and access times. This type of information is collected for purely internal purposes such as marketing analysis or demographic studies and is used solely to improve MC+A website to better address our users’ needs.  We also may collect personal information, aggregate it, anonymize it, and display it inside our website.
