What personal data we collect and why we collect it
MASA uses contact information solely for the purpose of distributing our email newsletter and/or for MASA business. MASA will not give, sell, or otherwise transfer email addresses or other contact information to any other party for the purposes of initiating or enabling others to initiate electronic or physical mail messages. We will not give out phone numbers, not even to your friends. We may call you and let you know that your friend is trying to contact you. If you want someone to have your contact information we can share it with them, but only with your permission.
We aim for full transparency on how we gather, use, and share your personal information.
If you give us your email address you will receive our email newsletter through Mailchimp. Your name and email are stored there. You can choose not to receive our newsletter when you sign up for a membership by answering the question in your MIS account which asks if you would like to get the newsletter. If you are already getting the newsletter you can unsubscribe at any time at the bottom of your newsletter. Or, let us know and we will remove it for you. We have a contact form where you can sign up for our newsletter.
When you sign up for a membership or lessons at MASA you will make an account through mis.io this is a seperate website that we contract with for membership management, booking and payment. If you fill out a paper membership form the information will be stored in MIS and on our office computer as well. Your personal information is not stored on the masaswim.com website. We do store your contact information on our computers which are conatined in a secure network through Marathon Cheese. Only our office staff have access to this. Your credit card information is not stored at MASA. It is only stored, if you choose to do so, through MIS for future purchases. You must store your card if you wish to be on autobill. MASA employees can not see your credit card information; only the last four numbers.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, calendars, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
What automated decision making do we do with user data?
We automat emails to let you know when you have a payment due and when your membership is set to expire. Possible attachments will include a statement created by Quickbooks.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files on your computer or other devices when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (“third party cookies”).
Both websites and HTML emails may contain other tracking technologies such as “web beacons” or “pixels.” These are typically small transparent images that provide us with statistics, for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer in the same way. As a result, if you disable cookies, web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.
The information about cookies was provided by automatic.com. They are the company that provides us with wordpress.com which is the framework for our website.
MASA does not allow registration as a wordpress.com user, or allow comments, so no cookies are stored there as they are on other WordPress websites. If you would like to leave a comment you may use our Facebook Page. We don’t have ads on our site so no information is collected that way.
