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.
"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.
We collect, store and process your personal information on servers located in the United States.

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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
