MAFO-Institut respects the privacy of visitors to its websites. This privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") explains how we collect, use, disclose and protect personal data ("Personal Data") submitted through this website.

Personal Data We Collect
Through this website, MAFO-Institut may collect information that can specifically identify you, such as your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address when you voluntarily submit it to us.

Use of Personal Data
We will only use Personal Data as set forth in this Privacy Policy, unless you have specifically consented to or opted-in to another use of your Personal Data. We may use and disclose Personal Data for any of the following reasons:
- to respond to requests you may make of us, including to provide services that you have requested and participate in activities that you have joined;
- to respond to duly authorized information requests of governmental authorities or where required by law;

The security of your Personal Data is very important to us. We have put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard the information we collect. Access to your Personal Data is granted only to those employees who require it in order to perform their duties. We cannot guarantee, however, that all communications between us or information stored on our servers will be free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers. Your use of our services demonstrates your assumption of this risk.

This website is not directed at children and we have no intention of collecting Personal Data from young people. If we become aware that Personal Data from a child under 14 has been collected without the consent of such child's parent or guardian, we will use all reasonable efforts to delete such information.
