Security Procedures
We are committed to maintaining the security of our Members’ business, financial and personal information. All operational and data processing systems are in a secure environment that protects Member information from being accessed by unauthorized individuals or third parties. Access to nonpublic information about you is restricted to those Associates who need to know that information in order to provide merchandise/products or services to you. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to guard your nonpublic personal information. Correspondence and telephone conversations are monitored for quality, compliance, and accuracy to ensure that our standards are being followed.

From time to time, we may enter into agreements with other companies to provide services to us or to make merchandise/products and services available to you. Under these agreements, the companies may receive information about you. They must safeguard this information, and they may not use it for any other purpose.

Disclosures to Service Your Membership Account
It is often necessary for us to disclose Member information to companies, including our affiliates, which perform services necessary to establish and manage Membership accounts on our behalf. These services may include transaction and statement processing, research and analysis, delivery of benefits and programs, marketing services, Customer Service, and protection against fraud. Additionally, if we offer Member the opportunity to enroll in affinity, frequent user, or award programs, we may provide certain Member information to companies that administer such programs. When it comes to disclosing Member information to others for the purpose of establishing and managing Member accounts, we place limits on who receives specific information. We disclose to these companies information that they need to establish and manage Member accounts and restrict the use of that information so that it cannot be used for any purpose beyond the intended service. We may also provide certain Member information to others outside of the corporation as required or permitted by law, such as to government entities, other third parties in response to subpoenas, or to consumer reporting agencies.

Disclosures to Provide You with Offers for Merchandise/Products and Services
We do not disclose any Member information to anyone, except as permitted by law. However, we recognize that an important benefit for our Members is the opportunity to receive offers for merchandise/products and services from other companies that may work with us. In the future, we may provide these offers to Member when we believe they will find them of value. These offers will be developed under conditions designed to safeguard Member information.

Offers for Merchandise/Products and Services of Other Companies
As described in this Privacy Policy, we work with affiliated and non-affiliated companies that help us service your account, and disclose information to these companies as permitted by law. In the future, we also may work with other companies to provide our Member with offers for products and services that they provide. These other companies may include financial service providers (that offer for example, insurance, loan and investment products) and non-financial companies (that offer for example card registries, membership clubs, and other consumer products and services). Unless you direct us not to, we may disclose information about you to those companies to enable them to develop and deliver these offers to you.

If you prefer, you may tell us not to disclose information about you to other companies for the purpose of providing you with their products and services; you can write to the MPR c/o P.O. BOX 461474 W. HOLLYWOOD, CA. 90046 (“opt-out”). You can also email us at: mercuryreport@yahoo.com. Please include your MPR Account Email(s) in your letter. If you opt out, everyone associated with your account will be excluded as well. If you have more than one account with us, you may receive multiple copies of this Privacy Policy. In that event, you will need to separately opt-out of this information disclosure for each of your accounts with us.

If you opt-out, you may still receive offers for merchandise/products and services provided by affiliated or non-affiliated companies when we communicate with you about your account. These offers, however, will be developed without disclosing information about you to the other companies. You may also still receive offers that are developed without the use of information that we have collected about you.

Commitment to Service
We believe the confidentiality and protection of Member information is one of our fundamental responsibilities. While information is critical to providing quality service, we recognize that one of our most important assets is our Members’ trust. Thus, the safekeeping of Member information is a priority for us. We will continuously strive to maintain complete and accurate information about our Members and their accounts. If you believe that our records contain inaccurate or incomplete information about you, it is important that you notify us as soon as possible. We will investigate your concerns and correct any inaccuracies.

Your Online Security 
One of our highest priorities for Online Account Services is to ensure your privacy and peace of mind by employing some of the most advanced online security measures in the industry.

Once you enroll in MPR Online Membership Account, you will be able to use your email address(s) as a self-selected username and password that serves as our first line of defense.

Whenever we ask you to send confidential information over the Internet, we require that a “secure session” using Secured Socket Layer (SSL) be established. SSL is a software-based security protocol that encodes data before it is transmitted over the Internet. The use of SSL requires that you have a browser that is SSL compatible. At a minimum, we require the use of a browser equipped with 128-bit encryption to ensure the privacy of your information and recommend the use of Netscape™ Navigator 8.08 or later, and Microsoft® Explorer 7.01 or later, Mozilla Firefox 2.0.3 or later, AOL 9.0 or later, and Safari 5.2 or later (MAC OS users). You can upgrade your browser by visiting the following websites:

Microsoft products, click here.
Netscape products, click here.
Mozilla based products, click here.
Safari based products, click here.
AOL based products, click here.

An icon, such as a lock or key, will be displayed in the corner of your browser’s window to let you know that your browser’s encryption is active. In addition, we have extensive and sophisticated security measures in place to protect our servers, databases, and communication lines. Our systems are monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week to ensure their continued integrity. We engage in regular internal and external reviews of our website processes/updates, security procedures, and technologies. We also must meet the standards established by regulatory agencies that perform periodic examinations. This attention to security helps ensure the safety of your account information. The best security measures are those that support your privacy without hindering your access to account information. You can rest assured that your account information is safe.

You can also ensure the security of your information by following these steps:

• Never reveal your username and password to anyone.
• Change your password frequently using the “Forgot Password” function.
• Always select passwords that cannot be easily guessed.
• Always sign out before walking away from your computer.
• Always sign out before accessing other websites.

We reserve the right to change this Online Privacy Addendum and our information collection activities for this website at any time by modifying and posting a new Privacy Policy.
