What type of Personal Information does MPM Models collect and how do we use it?

MPM Models does not require you to provide us with any Personal Information in order to browse the Website. MPM Models does not collect Personal Information from individuals except when it is specifically and knowingly provided. For example, in order to submit an Application to MPM Models, Registrants must provide us with certain Personal Information, including without limitation (i) a Registrant’s name, address, telephone number and email address, (ii) a detailed description of the Registrant’s physical attributes, and photographs/videos of a Registrant (“Content”). All Personal Information that is collected is for a specified and legitimate purpose and is considered adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary for such purpose.
 

Unless you provide your Personal Information to MPM Models through the Website, we will not collect any Personal Information from you. In the event you submit your Personal Information to us, we will use such Personal Information for internal purposes, for contacting you about events and media related to MPM Models’ activities and we may share such Personal Information with third parties who may contact you as well with news and offers. You may opt-out of such communications if they do not interest you. We may also release such Personal Information to third parties if we believe such release is necessary to comply with the law (e.g., a legal process or a statutory authorization), to apply or enforce our customer agreements, to protect our rights or property, if we reasonably believe that the physical safety of a person is threatened, or as part of a corporate reorganization, consolidation, merger, or sale of substantially all of the assets of MPM Models.
 

Please keep in mind that, if you are accepted as a model by MPM Models, portions of the Content contained in your Application may be made publicly viewable on the Website by us. Do not submit any Content to the Website that you are not authorized to distribute to the public or that you don’t want others to see.

 
 

What other information does MPM Models collect?

We also may collect anonymous and aggregate information from you about your preferences in navigating the Website by using cookies, action tags and other methods. Cookies are small text files that identify your computer. We may use cookies to, among other things, monitor Website usage, customize Website features, identify your computer’s operating system and browser, and complete transactions. An action tag is a small, graphic image on a webpage that is designed to allow the website owner or a third party to monitor who is visiting a website by collecting the IP address of the computer to which the tag is sent, the URL of the webpage that the tag comes from and the time that such webpage was viewed. Tags may be associated with cookie information. We may also use such anonymous and aggregate information for promotional purposes.
 

If you do not want us to track such information about you, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse cookies when your browser alerts you to their presence. You can also adjust the settings in your browser to refuse all cookies.
 

You can be assured that Personal Information collected through the Website is maintained in a manner consistent with current industry standards. Your Personal information is protected in several ways. Your personal information resides on a secure server that only selected MPM Models, employees and contractors have access to via password. We encrypt your Personal Information and thereby prevent unauthorized parties from viewing such information when it is transmitted to us. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged through the Website cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party.
 

While we take reasonable efforts to protect Personal Information that you provide to us, we cannot guarantee that such information will not be lost, disclosed or accessed by accidental circumstances or by the unauthorized acts of others.

We will not rent or sell your information to third parties without your consent, except as noted in this Privacy Policy. We may share your information as set forth above with businesses that are legally part of the same group of companies that MPM Models is part of, or that become part of that group ("Affiliates"). We also may share your information as set forth above to providers that help us provide the services to you ("Service Providers").

We may access, preserve and share your information in response to a legal request (like a search warrant, court order or subpoena) if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so. This may include responding to legal requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States where we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law in that jurisdiction, affects users in that jurisdiction, and is consistent with internationally recognized standards. We may also access, preserve and share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud and other illegal activity; to protect ourselves, you and others, including as part of investigations; and to prevent death or imminent bodily harm. Information we receive about you may be accessed, processed and retained for an extended period of time when it is the subject of a legal request or obligation, governmental investigation, or investigations concerning possible violations of our terms or policies, or otherwise to prevent harm.
