The information that MCT collects is used to enhance the usability and improve the content of our web pages. It may be used to personalize information and for statistical purposes. Personal information will not be shared with third parties unless indicated and when approved by you (in other words, if you opt-in to sharing information) or unless required to do so by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, court orders, legal process from law enforcement agencies, or similar legal proceedings. MCT provides information to investigate or prevent suspected illegal activities. Personal data may be shared in the following situations, as well:
-As required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, legal proceedings, or similar legal process

-In certain situations, MCT may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements, and
-To a third party with your prior consent to do so.
MCT will retain personal data processed for up to two years or until a confirmed visitor/user notifies us that he/she no longer wishes to receive the services or information for which the data was collected. MCT will retain and use this personal information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on the bottom of this page:

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever MCT collects sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the Web page.
While MCT uses encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, MCT also protects your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, mailing a visitors guide) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which MCT stores personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
In order to request travel information, you must first complete a request form. A request form requires you to give certain information (such as name and address). This information is used to contact you about the products/services on our site in which you have expressed interest. At your option, you may also provide additional information (such as a phone number), but it is not required. If MCT has trouble fulfilling your request, this information will be used to contact you.
We share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
MCT may partner with another party to provide specific services. When the user opts-in for these services, MCT will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
This website contains links to third-party sites as a convenience to the user. Please be aware that MCT is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. MCT encourages this site’s users to be aware when they leave this site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information. MCT cannot be held liable for any damages or implications caused nor transactions undertaken as the result of visiting any external links mentioned.
Email marketing campaigns published by this website or its owners may contain tracking facilities within the actual email. Subscriber activity is tracked and stored in a database for future analysis and evaluation. Such tracked activity may include: the opening of emails, forwarding of emails, the clicking of links within the email content, times, dates and frequency of activity (this is in no way a comprehensive list). This information is used to refine future email campaigns and supply the user with more relevant content based around their activity.
Social Media Platforms
Communication, engagement and actions taken through external social media platforms that this website and its owners participate on are custom to the terms and conditions as well as the privacy policies held with each social media platform respectively.
Users are advised to use social media platforms wisely and communicate/engage upon them with due care and caution in regard to their own privacy and personal details. This website nor its owners will ever ask for personal or sensitive information through social media platforms and encourage users wishing to discuss sensitive details to contact them through primary communication channels such as by telephone or email.
This website may use social sharing buttons which help share web content directly from web pages to the social media platform in question. Users are advised before using such social sharing buttons that they do so at their own discretion and note that the social media platform may track and save your request to share a web page respectively through your social media platform account.
Shortened Links in Social Media
This website and its owners through their social media platform accounts may share web links to relevant web pages. By default some social media platforms shorten lengthy URLs (web addresses, for example “http://bit.ly” and "https://goo.gl” addresses).
Users are advised to take caution and use good judgement before clicking any shortened URLs published on social media platforms by this website and its owners. Despite the best efforts to ensure only genuine URLs are published many social media platforms are prone to spam and hacking and therefore this website and its owners cannot be held liable for any damages or implications caused by visiting any shortened links.
