What Personal Information Does MESA Gather?
The information we learn from users helps us personalize and continually improve your experience at MESA. MESA collects personal information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address, or telephone number. Information collected by MESA is used solely for the purpose of your profile, and billing and the fulfillment of your online purchases, if applicable. MESA receives and stores certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many websites, we use “cookies,” and we obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses the Platform. A number of companies offer utilities designed to help you visit websites anonymously. Although we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience at MESA if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist. To help us make emails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open email from MESA if your computer supports such capabilities.
What about Cookies?
Like many websites, we use “cookies” to help us collect and keep track of information. A cookie is a small data file, recognizable by our system that we transfer to your computer’s hard disk when you visit our Platform. We may use “persistent” cookies to save certain user preferences and (at your option) your user ID and associated authentication information for future logins to the Platform. We may also utilize “session” cookies to enable certain features of the Platform to better understand how you interact with the Platform, and to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on the Platform. Unlike persistent cookies, session cookies are deleted from your computer when you log off from the Platform and then close your browser. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use some or all of the Platform.
Does MESA Share the Information It Receives?
- Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control: We work closely with our affiliated businesses and share user information related to their transactions with that third party.
- With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
How Secure Is Information About Me?
MESA is very concerned with safeguarding your information. We employ administrative, physical and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to log out when finished using a shared computer. To log out after using the Platform, click logout on the top, right of the page.
What About Third-Party Advertisers and Links to Other Platforms?
Our Platform may include third-party advertising and links to other Platforms. We do not provide any personally identifiable user information to advertisers or third-party Platforms.
MESA may also display targeted advertising based on personal information about users. Although MESA does not provide any personal information to advertisers, advertisers (including ad-serving companies) may assume that users who interact with or click on a targeted advertisement meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad (for example, farmers in the Central Valley who are interested in farm equipment).
Which Information Can I Access?
MESA gives you access to a broad range of information about your account and your interactions with MESA for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information.
What Choices Do I Have?
How does California law affect the security of your information?
Beginning on January 1, 2005, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits our users who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an e-mail to: email@example.com
