Thank you for visiting the MEDC website
This website is owned and operated by MEDC, a non-profit lender that provides financing to businesses in the Milwaukee 7 region. This privacy policy explains how we collect, use, and disclose personal information collected at this site. By using this website, you are consenting to the practices described in this privacy policy. 

Your Privacy
MEDC respects the privacy of all visitors to our website. No personal information that you provide here is ever given, rented, shared, sold or transferred to any third party for their benefit. We do not collect any personal information from users browsing our website. Only aggregate data is collected—such as your browser type, the pages of our site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages, and other log statistics. 

Your Personal Information
Providing personal information on the MEDC website is optional. Should you choose to provide personal information, MEDC may contact you, either in response to a query or suggestion, or to mail you newsletters or documents. If you choose not to provide personal information, you can still browse and use the MEDC site, but you will not be able to carry out certain actions such as registering for a newsletter, contacting us via email, or registering for an event. 

When you provide personal information to communicate with us, we use the industry standard for internet security — Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to help protect the information you provide. This internet encryption standard scrambles data as it travels from your computer to our server. Please note, however, that perfect security does not exist on the Internet. You will know that you are in a secure area of our website when a “lock” icon appears on your screen and the “http” portion of our URL address changes to “https.” The “s” stands for “secure.”

Commitment to Data Security
Your personal information is kept secure. Only authorized employees, agents, and contractors (who have agreed to keep information secure and confidential) have access to this information. All emails and newsletters received in response to the sharing of your personal information allow you to opt out of further mailings.

Links to Other Sites
Some pages of the MEDC site contain links to other websites, not affiliated with MEDC. These are provided for your convenience and information. These websites operate independently from our site and are not under MEDC control. We strongly suggest you review the privacy policies of any outside websites that you visit. MEDC is not responsible for the content of these sites, any products or services that may be offered through these sites, or any other use of these sites. MEDC maintains administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect against unauthorized disclosure, use, alteration, or destruction of the personal information in our possession only. 

Changes to Privacy Policy
We reserve the right to make changes to this policy. Should our practices change at any time, this policy will be updated and posted. You are encouraged to review our privacy policy whenever you visit the MEDC site to make sure that you understand how any personal information you provide will be used.
