Technical and regulatory information
Application logging practices
Macaos automatically records the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of users when logging in to any Application. The IP address is a unique number assigned to every computer on the internet. Generally, an IP address changes each time you connect to the internet (it is a "dynamic" address). Note, however, that if you have a broadband connection, depending on your individual circumstance, the IP address that we collect may contain information that could be deemed identifiable. This is because, with some broadband connections, your IP address doesn't change (it is "static") and could be associated with your personal computer.
As well as recording the IP addresses of users, Macaos automatically records the application name and version, date and time of login. Your activity is logged as necessary to insure the integrity and functionality of the Macaos system. Logged activity includes (but is not limited to) such operations as getting quotations, placing orders and publishing products.
Website logging practices
Macaos automatically records the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of visitors to our Websites. As well as recording the IP addresses of users, Macaos may also keep track of sites that users visited immediately prior to visiting a Website and the search terms they used to find it. We may keep track of the pages visited on Websites, the amount of time spent on those pages and the types of searches done on them. Your searches remain confidential and anonymous. Macaos uses this information only for statistical purposes to find out which pages users find most useful and to improve the Website.
Macaos also captures and stores information that you transmit. This may include:
- Browser/Device type/version
- Operating system used
- Media Access Control (MAC) address
- Date and time of the server request
- Volume of data transferred
External links behavior
Some Websites link to other sites created and maintained by other public- and/or private-sector organizations. Macaos provides these links solely for your information and convenience. When you transfer to an outside web site, you are leaving the Macaos domain, and our information management policies no longer apply. Macaos encourages you to read the privacy statement of each external web site that you visit before you provide any personal data.
Cookies and web beacons
Cookies and web beacons are electronic placeholders that are placed on your device by web sites to track your individual movements on that web site over time. Macaos may use both session-based cookies (which last only for the duration of the user's session) and persistent cookies (which remain on your device and provides information about the session you are in and waits for the next time you use that site again).
These cookies and web beacons provide useful information to Macaos, enabling us to recognize repeat users, facilitate the user's access to and use of our sites, allows us to track usage behavior, and to balance the usage of our Websites on all Macaos web servers.
Tracking cookies, third-party cookies, and other technologies such as web beacons may be used to process additional information, enable non-core functionalities on the Websites and enable third-party functions (such as a social media "share" link).
Do Not Track (DNT)
The online advertising industry has self-regulatory initiatives designed to provide consumers a choice in the types of ads they may see online and to conveniently opt-out from online behavioral ads served by some or all of the companies participating in these programs. Our Websites may not respond to DNT consumer browser settings.
Collaboration with authorities
Macaos will ensure proper communication with the relevant regulatory authority for privacy. As necessary, we will lead investigative action, complaint handling and data breach notification. We will also monitor regulatory changes and consult the regulatory authority where implementation of a regulatory or technological change leads to doubt.
Transfer of information to other countries
Macaos users and suppliers are located throughout the world. For this reason, Macaos may transfer information to other countries. By submitting your information to Macaos via the Websites, or in connection with your use of any Application, you consent to such transfers and to the processing of this information in other countries.
Responses to legal requests
Macaos reserves the right to share your information to respond to duly authorized information requests of governmental authorities or where required by law.
