Privacy Policy

Welcome to the MayoNiche.com Privacy Policy page.

When you use the site, you trust us with your information. This Privacy Policy is meant to help you understand what data we collect, why we collect it, and what we do with it.

When you share information with us, we can make our services even better for you. For instance, we can show you more relevant search results, help you connect with people, or to make sharing with others quicker and easier.

As you use our services, we want you to be clear about how we are using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy.

This is important, we hope you will take time to read it carefully. We have tried to keep it as simple as possible. Remember, you can find controls to manage your information and protect your privacy and security.

Management of personal data

You can view or edit your personal data online for many of the MayoNiche services but for some, you may have to submit a request to our support Email. You can also make choices about the collection and use of your data. How you can access or control your personal data will depend on which services you use. You can choose whether you wish to receive promotional communications from our site by email.

If you receive promotional email or SMS messages from us and would like to opt-out, you can do so by following the directions in that message. These choices do not apply to mandatory service communications that are part of certain services e.g. e-commerce transactions etc.

MayoNiche provides data gathered on this site with AWS (Amazon Web Services) for analytical and reporting purposes. This data will be handled in the same way as natively stored data in any ‘right to’ data request.

Information we collect

MayoNiche.com site collects data to operate effectively and provide you with the best experience of our services. You provide some of this data directly, such as when you create a personal account. We get some of it by recording how you interact with our services by, for example, using technologies like cookies, and receiving error reports or usage data from software running on your device.

We also obtain data from third parties (including other companies). For example, we supplement the data we collect by gathering demographic data from other companies e.g. Google Analytics.

Additionally, when you enter your email, make a purchase, or attempt to make a purchase through the Site, we collect certain information from you, including your name and email address. We use this information to generate registration details (that you will use to Login to MayoNiche app). We refer to this information as “Order Information.”

We also use services from third parties to help us determine a location based on your IP address in order to customize certain services to your location. The data we collect depends on the services and features you use.

How we use your information

MayoNiche.com uses the data we collect for three basic purposes: to operate our business and provide (including improving and personalizing) the services we offer, to send communications, including promotional communications, and to display advertising. In carrying out these purposes, we combine data we collect through the various site services you use to give you a more seamless, consistent, and personalized experience.

However, to enhance privacy, we have built-in technological and procedural safeguards designed to prevent certain data combinations. For example, we store data we collect from you when you are unauthenticated (not signed in) separately from any account information that directly identifies you, such as your name, email address, or phone number.

MayoNiche.com will only share your personal data with your consent or as necessary to complete any transaction or provide any service you have requested or authorized.

We also share personal data with vendors or agents working on our behalf for the purposes described in this statement. For example, companies we’ve hired to provide customer service support or assist in protecting and securing our systems and services may need access to personal data in order to provide those functions.

In such cases, these companies must abide by our data privacy and security requirements and are not allowed to use personal data they receive from us for any other purpose. We may also disclose personal data as part of a corporate transaction such as a merger or sale of assets.
