What information does your website collect and how is it used?

Our website tracks general information about visitors, such as domain name, IP address, date and time of visit. The website uses cookies and web beacons to collect this information. Generally, this information is non-identifiable and would likely not be considered personal information. This information is used only for the purposes of managing our website, identifying technical issues, and improving the content of the website. 

Web beacons allow our third-party tracking tool, Google Analytics, to gather information such as the IP address of your computer, the time the page was viewed, and the type of Internet browser used to access the page. This information is reported to us in aggregate form. If you are concerned about the use of Web beacons or cookies you can turn off your browser’s cookies. This will prevent web beacons from tracking your activity; however, the web beacon may still record a visit from your IP address.

Do you disclose and retain personal information?

Mara Consulting will only collect, use, disclose and retain the minimum amount of personal information we need for our identified purposes. Mara Consulting does not sell or trade personal information. Personal information may be disclosed without consent to comply with legal requirements, such as a court order or subpoena. 

Mara Consulting will only retain personal information for the purpose for which it was collected, as required by law, and to address any issues that may arise later. When personal information is no longer required for these purposes, it will be securely destroyed or de-identified.

Is the personal information accurate?

Mara Consulting will keep personal information as up to date as is necessary for the purposes for which the information was collected.

How is personal information protected?

Personal information is protected using reasonable physical, administrative and technical safeguards. Access to personal information is restricted to those who need it to provide services, issue invoices, and manage employees or recruitment. Should a privacy breach occur, Mara Consulting will take necessary steps to contain the breach and will comply with breach notification requirements.
