A. OVERVIEW

In order to provide certain online services and to reduce the risk of fraud, Mica Corporation must ask you to provide us information about yourself and your company. This Privacy Policy describes the information we collect and how we use that information.

Mica Corporation takes the privacy of your personal information very seriously and will use your information only in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy. We will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information or a list of our customers to third parties. However, as described in more detail in Part C below, there are limited circumstances in which some of your information will be shared with third parties, under strict restrictions, so it is important for you to review this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy applies to all services that are hosted on the Mica- Corp.com web site.

If you have questions or concerns regarding this Privacy Policy, you should contact Mica Corporation at info@mica-corp.com. By accepting the Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use agreement with your registration, you expressly consent to our use and disclosure of your personal information in the manner described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and subject to the Terms of Use agreement. This Privacy Policy will take effect on January 1, 2009. This Privacy Policy was last updated on January 1, 2009.

Please note that your personal information will be stored and processed on computers in the United States. The laws on holding personal data in the United States may be less stringent than the laws of your country but Mica Corporation will hold and transmit your personal information in a safe, confidential and secure environment. If you object to your personal information being transferred or used as described in this Privacy Policy, please do not register for, or use the Mica Corporation Web site.

Notification of Changes

This policy may be revised over time as new features are added to the Mica Corporation web site. If we are going to use or disclose your personally identifiable information in a manner materially different from that stated at the time we collected the information, you will have a choice as to whether or not we use or disclose your information in this new manner. Any material changes will be effective only after we have posted the changes to our Web site at least 30 days in advance of the amended Privacy Policy.

We will post the amended Privacy Policy prominently on our Web site so that you can always review what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose it to anyone.

To open an Mica Corporation account, you must provide your name, company affiliation, address, phone number, and e-mail address. This required information is necessary for us to manage your account, and to contact you should the need arise in administering your account.

Web Site Traffic Information

Because of the way that World Wide Web communication standards work, when you arrive at or leave the Mica Corporation Web site, we automatically receive the Web address of the site that you came from or are going to. We also collect information on which pages of our Web site you visit while you are on the Mica Corporation site, the type of browser you use and the times you access our Web site. We use this information only to try to understand our customers' preferences better and to manage the load on our servers, so as to improve our service and your experience with Mica Corporation. We do not track the Web sites that you visit before or after you leave the Mica Corporation site.

Our Use of "Cookies"

"Cookies" are small files of data that reside on your computer and allow us to recognize you as an Mica Corporation user if you return to the Mica Corporation site using the same computer and browser. We send a session cookie and Flash cookie to your computer if and when you log in to your Mica Corporation account by entering your e-mail address and password. These cookies allow us to recognize you if you visit multiple pages in our site during the same session, so that you don't need to re-enter your password multiple times. Once you log out or close your browser, these cookies expire and no longer have any effect.

We also use longer-lasting cookies to display your e-mail address on our sign-in form, so that you don't have to retype the e-mail address each time when you log in to your Mica Corporation account. Our cookie files are encoded so that your e-mail address and other information can only be interpreted by Mica Corporation.

Customer Service Correspondence

If you send us correspondence, including e-mails and faxes, we retain such information in the records of your account. We will also retain customer service correspondence and other correspondence from Mica Corporation to you. We retain these records in order to measure and improve our customer service, and to investigate potential fraud and violations of our Terms of Use agreement. We may, over time, delete these records if permitted by law.

C. OUR USE AND DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION

Internal Uses

We collect, store and process your personal information on servers located in the United States. We use the information we collect about you in order 1) to provide our services, 2) to provide customer service, and 3) to improve our products and services. We give access to individually identifiable information about our users only to those employees who require it to fulfill customer service requests.

Disclosure to Third Parties

Mica Corporation will not sell or rent any of your personally identifiable information to third parties. Mica Corporation will not share any of your personally identifiable information with third parties except in the limited circumstances described below, or with your express permission. These third parties are limited by law or by contract from using the information for secondary purposes beyond the purposes for which the information is shared.

  1. We disclose information that we in good faith believe is appropriate to cooperate in investigations of fraud or other illegal activity, or to conduct investigations of violations of our Terms of Use agreement.
  2. We disclose information in response to a subpoena, warrant, court order, levy, attachment, order of a court-appointed receiver or other comparable legal process, including subpoenas from private parties in a civil action.
  3. We disclose information to your agent or legal representative (such as the holder of a power of attorney that you grant, or a guardian appointed for you).
  4. We share aggregated statistical data with our business partners or for public relations. For example, we may disclose that a specific percentage of our users live in California. However, this aggregated information is not tied to personally identifiable information.
  5. As with any other business, it is possible that Mica Corporation in the future could merge with or be acquired by another company. If such an acquisition occurs, the successor company would have access to the information maintained by Mica Corporation, including customer account information, but would continue to be bound by this Privacy Policy unless and until it is amended as described in Section A above.
Our Contacts with Mica Corporation Users

We may from time to time communicate with users via e-mail to provide requested services, and we may also communicate by phone to resolve customer issues. We use your e-mail address to confirm your opening of a Mica Corporation account, to send information about important changes to our products and services, and to send notices and other disclosures required by law. Generally, users cannot opt out of these communications, but they will be primarily informational in nature rather than promotional.

We also may use your e-mail address to send you other types of communications that you can control, including newsletter, notification of new products or services, customer surveys and notice of special third-party promotions. You can choose whether to receive some, all or none of these communications.

Internet Address Information

We use IP addresses, browser types and access times to analyze trends, administer the site, improve site performance and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

Your Use of Information and Our Services

Mica Corporation does not tolerate spam. Therefore, you may not add a Mica Corporation user to your mail list (email or physical mail) without their express consent after adequate disclosure. We strictly enforce our Anti-Spam Policy!

D. INFORMATION SECURITY

Information Security

Mica Corporation is committed to handling your customer information with high standards of information security. We restrict access to your personally identifiable information to employees who need to know that information in order to provide products or services to you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to guard your nonpublic personal information.

The security of your Mica Corporation account also relies on your protection of your password. You may not share your password with anyone. Mica Corporation will never ask you to send your password or other sensitive information to us in an e-mail, though we may ask you to enter this type of information on the Mica Corporation Web site.

If you do share your password with a third party for any reason, including because the third party has promised to provide you additional services, the third party will have access to your account and your personal information, and you may be responsible for actions taken using your password. If you believe someone else has obtained access to your password, please change it immediately by logging in to your account at www.mica-corp.com and changing your Profile settings, and also contact us right away as described in Section F below.

E. ACCESSING AND CHANGING YOUR INFORMATION

You can review the personal information you provided us and make any desired changes to such information, or to the settings for your Mica Corporation account, at any time by logging in to your account on the Mica Corporation Web site. You can also close your account through the Mica Corporation Web site. If you close your Mica Corporation account, we will mark your account in our database as "Closed," but will keep your account information in our database. This is necessary in order to deter fraud, by ensuring that persons who try to commit fraud will not be able to avoid detection simply by closing their account and opening a new account. However, if you close your account, your personally identifiable information will not be used by us for any further purposes, nor sold or shared with third parties, except as necessary to prevent fraud and assist law enforcement, or as required by law.
