What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information:

Our registration forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, e-mail address, format preference (HTML vs. Text), address, interests, credit card number and similar information. We do not request or store sensitive information from our visitors, such as Social Insurance Numbers or other unrelated data.

Information collected from visitors, requesting information about the event is used strictly for that purpose. Information collected from Participants is used to communicate with the participants and to allow and facilitate their participation in the event. Information collected from donors is used to process their gift, including the sending of an acknowledgement and tax receipt and to advise the sponsored participant of the gift. Donors have the right to request and receive anonymity for their gift. No information collected is sold, rented or exchanged with any third party.

Internet Protocol Address:

We collect an IP address from all visitors to our Site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer the MSHF site, analyze trends, track users' movement, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
