Privacy and Cookie Statement
MTI Technology is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the MTI Technology Web site and governs data collection and usage. By using the MTI Technology website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.
The MTI Technology Web site use "cookies" to help you personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise MTI Technology pages, or register with MTI Technology site or services, a cookie helps MTI Technology to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same MTI Technology Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the MTI Technology features that you customised.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the MTI Technology or Web sites you visit.
On 26 May 2011, the amended Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations came into force. They include changes to the rules for cookies on websites, and introduce new powers for the Information Commissioner to serve monetary penalties up to £500,000 and to investigate when the law may have been broken. Websites now need to ask for permission before they can set most cookies.
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. Cookies might be used, for example, to remember your preferences on a website, to count the number of people looking at a website or to look at how users navigate the site.
With the amended regulations, you are likely to see more information about cookies on sites and be given more choices about these cookies. This might include, for example, being asked to agree to a cookie being used for a particular service, such as remembering your preferences on a site.
