Web Privacy Standard

Information We Gather

When you visit MGA web sites, we may collect certain routing information, including, but not limited to, the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address of your originating Internet Service Provider (“ISP”), and information provided by “cookies” stored on your hard drive. We may also collect aggregate information about the use of the Site, including, but not limited to, which pages are most frequently visited, how many visitors we receive daily, and how long visitors stay on each page. We may disclose and publish aggregate information on an aggregate basis to any party through any means, but such aggregate information will not disclose any personal information. Any information collected through this Site may also be used in aggregate by system administrators in the administration of the Site. This information helps us understand aggregate uses of our site, track usage trends, and improve our services. You may also be required to provide certain personal information in order to access various features and information on the Site. Such information may include, among other things, your name, address, and phone number. If you do not want to provide such information, you may choose not to access those features of the Site. Any personal information that you choose to provide through the Site will be protected in accordance with the provisions of this standard.

This standard does not necessarily describe information collection policies on non-MGA sites, such as separate sites operated by our Service Providers that we do not control. Many of the resources linked from MGA sites are not maintained by MGA. MGA cannot monitor all linked resources, only those pages that fall directly within MGA world-wide web structure. MGA is in no way responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these linked resources, and the statements, views, and opinions expressed therein are neither endorsed by nor do they necessarily reflect the opinion of MGA. Any links to non-MGA information or resources are provided as a courtesy. They are not intended to nor do they constitute an endorsement by MGA of the linked materials.


Cookies are small pieces of data that may be stored by a Web browser. Cookies are often used to remember information about preferences and pages you have visited. This information is stored for your convenience and also may be used in the aggregate to monitor and enhance the Site. For example, when you visit some sites on the Web you might see a “Welcome Back” message. The first time you visited the site a cookie may have been set on your computer; when you return, the cookie is read again. You can refuse to accept cookies, can disable cookies, and remove cookies from your hard drive. However, if you do not accept cookies from the Site, you may lose access to the Site or experience decreased performance of the Site.
