Thank you for visiting the website of Mississippi Land Bank and reviewing our Privacy Practices Policy. Our Privacy Practices Policy is straightforward: we will collect no personal information about you when you visit our website unless you purposefully notate doing so.
Is my information kept confidential?
Yes. In an effort to gain assistance or business credit, business owners will frequently share financial and private information with outside professionals. When doing this, business owners can expect that appropriate steps will be taken to guard their information; we respect your right to confidentiality and have processes in place to afford your information the protection you expect.
One way we control this is by giving computer access only to employees involved in the process of administering or monitoring account information. The standards of conduct in place prohibit unauthorized use of your information. We never sell customer information to third parties. Your information is not provided to others, including your accountant or attorney, without your authorization, or unless required by law, legal process or required government disclosures, or under other very limited circumstances pertaining to Farm Credit regulations.
What information do you gather about me?
When you visit our website regularly, we can generally recognize your domain name and email address automatically, and collect your email address on the particular pages and features you use and access. We also collect the information you willingly provide us during varied transactions.
We collect this information in order to communicate with you via email when appropriate, make ongoing improvements to the user experience on our website, personalize the content of the website for you when possible, and notify you about updates to our website and services. Following initial contact, this information is not retained unless by your request (such as the instance of applying for credit or other services), and is destroyed following this initial fulfillment.
"Cookies" may be used from time to time for better operation of our website. "Cookies" generally allow websites to recognize whether or not you have visited the site before. It's a piece of data passed from the browser to the server, so the browser can hand it back to the server on subsequent visits.
If during your visit you do nothing but browse the website, reading pages or downloading information, we may, by using cookies, automatically gather and store certain pieces of information about your visit. This information does not identify you personally. The information being collected and stored automatically through cookies may be:
- Your Internet domain (i.e., "yourcompany.com") if you use a private Internet access account, and IP address from which you access your website.
- The type of browser and operating system used to access our website.
- The date and time you visited our site.
- The pages you visited.
- If you linked to our website from another website, and the address of that other website.
Protecting Our Children
Never do we knowingly solicit information from children, nor knowingly market to children. We absolutely recognize that protecting a child’s identity and privacy online is crucial and the responsibility to do so lies with both the online industry and also with his or her parents.
Security, Intrusion and Detection
For website security reasons, and to ensure this service remains available to all users, our computer system employs software (commonly known as "sniffers") to screen our network traffic and identify unauthorized attempts to upload, change, corrupt information, or otherwise cause damage (commonly known as "hacking").
Our website may contain access to information, products or services from other sites that are owned by other companies ("Third Party Websites"). We provide this access through the use of hyperlinks that link you from this website to the Third Party Website.
We try our best to provide you only helpful, trustworthy resources—but we cannot officially guarantee, endorse or approve information, products, services or recommendations provided by a Third Party Website. We are not responsible for the content or accuracy of any Third Party Website and offer you links to Third Party Websites on an "as-is" basis. We are not responsible for any loss or damage of any sort resulting from the use of a Third Party Website, or any failure on products or services advertised or provided by a Third Party Website.
By visiting a Third Party Website from a link on our website, you will no longer be protected by our Privacy Practices. The data use, collection and protection practices of the Third Party Website may differ from our Privacy Practices. Please familiarize yourself with the privacy and protection policies or security practices of each Third Party Website you visit.
