The accuracy, completeness, adequacy or currency of the content is not warranted or guaranteed. The use of information on the site or materials linked from the site is at the user’s own risk.

Cookies are essentially tokens of information, such as preferences and passwords, which some web servers collect from users when users access them. Those data are stored on a user’s hard drive and not on the website’s server. Whenever a user visits a “cookie” site again, the server looks for its cookie on the hard drive and, if found, then reads the information it stored there. The information within a cookie is used to enhance the user’s interaction with the website. There are parts of this website that may use cookies.


MCHIP will act reasonably to ensure that any information you provide to us is not accessed by unauthorized persons. We do not sell, rent, share or otherwise willfully disclose to any third party, e-mail addresses or other personally identifiable information shared on this site.

How We Use Collected Information

MCHIP may use your Personal Information:

  • To send you information about MCHIP or MCHIP affiliates.
  • To personalize your interactions with MCHIP, such as to customize your web and email content based on your interests, send you requests to participate events and otherwise target content and communications to you.
  • To respond to inquiries and fulfill your requests, such as sending information about a project, as well as to provide technical resources if of interest to the user.
  • To send administrative information to you, such as information regarding our Sites and changes to tour terms, conditions, and policies.
  • To allow you to participate in contests and similar promotions and to administer these activities. Some of these activities have additional rules, which could contain additional information about how we use and disclose your Personal Information.
  • To facilitate social sharing functionality.
  • For our internal purposes, such as data analysis, audits, fraud monitoring and prevention, enhancing, improving or modifying our Sites, identifying usage trends, determining the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns, and operating and expanding our activities.

Special Categories of Personal Data:

We do not collect from users or process (a) the special categories of personal data defined by the European Union (“EU”) General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”); or personal data relating to criminal convictions or offenses. The Site and SEO Platform are not meant for the processing of sensitive Personal Information. Please do not send us, and do not disclose, any sensitive Personal Information (such as information related to racial or ethnic origin, religion or other beliefs, health, criminal background or trade union membership) on or through the Site or otherwise, as MCHIP has no intentions of processing such sensitive Personal Information.

Pursuant to the EU GDPR, and other applicable privacy laws, you have the right to:

  • Know what Personal Information MCHIP has about you;
  • Ensure your Personal Information is accurate and relevant for the purposes for which MCHIP collected it;
  • Make your Personal Information portable to another data controller;
  • Withdraw your consent to MCHIP processing your Personal Information; and
  • Have your Personal Information erased.

If you would like to review, correct, receive a copy of, or erase the Personal Information we have about you or withdraw your processing consent, please send us your request using the “Contact Information” below. Unless a legal exemption applies, we will respond to all such requests within thirty (30) days. If we refuse your request, we will notify you of our reasons for the refusal to the extent required and how you may complain about the refusal.

We ask individual users to identify themselves and to specify the information requested to be accessed, corrected, or erased before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive and vexatious, require disproportionate technical effort (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes), jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required. In any case where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort. However, we will not charge you for the making of the request or to correct, update, or erase your Personal Information.
