This privacy policy describes the types of personal data we collect, how we use it, how and when it may be shared, and the rights and choices you have with respect to your information. It also explains how we communicate with you and how you can make requests or submit inquiries to us about your information. In this privacy policy, the terms “We,” “us,” refer to McKay Brothers, LLC, McKay Brothers International SA, Quincy Data, LLC and our respective affiliates, among whom your information may be shared. The term “Service Provider” refers to vendors, consultants, professional advisors, and other service providers working on our behalf.

This privacy policy applies to information we collect from all sources, including in connection with our website, conferences, events, electronic newsletters or communications, or in connection with the services we provide or any of our job postings that link to this privacy policy.

What information do we collect?

In this privacy policy, “personal data” means any information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with or reasonably can be used to identify an individual or household and other data that is linked to personal information.

Types of personal data we may collect include:

• Information automatically collected about you when you access our website. We use cookies to compile aggregate data about website traffic and website interaction so that we can offer better website experiences and tools in the future. Cookies are small files that a website or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow), that enable the websites or service providers systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. You may disable cookies in your Web browser; however, it is possible that doing so may impact your ability to use our website.
