What personal data we collect and why we collect it
As a visitor, you do not have to submit any personal information in order to use the website. The NCBW MECCA Website collects personal information only if it is specifically and voluntarily provided by visitors. Such information may consist of, but is not limited to, your name, current job title, company address, email address and telephone and fax numbers.
We do not usually seek sensitive information (e.g., data relating to race or ethnic origin, religious beliefs, criminal record, physical or mental health or sexual orientation) from visitors. We will, where necessary, obtain your explicit consent to collect and use such information.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
At times, you may choose to register or create a user profile on this site – e.g., to gain access to specific content, make recurring purchases, respond to a survey or request communications about specific areas of interest. In such cases, the information you submit may be used to manage your request; to manage our relationship with you; or to customize or improve the NCBW MECCA Website.
We may also use your personal information for marketing purposes, or to send you promotional materials or communications regarding services provided by us or other members of the NCBW MECCA Network that we feel may be of interest to you. We may also contact you to seek feedback on our services or for market or other research purposes. Your personal information may also be used to protect our rights or property and that of our users.
You may at any time request that we discontinue sending you emails or other communications generated in response to your registration on the NCBW MECCA Website.
Who we share your data with
We may provide your personal information to other members of the NCBW MECCA Network in order to provide you with information that could be of interest to you and conduct market or other research. Personal information may also be disclosed to members of the NCBW MECCA Network and other third parties in order to respond to your requests or inquiries; as part of a corporate transaction (such as a sale, divestiture, merger or acquisition); or where those parties handle information on our behalf.
All of these disclosures may involve the transfer of personal information to countries or regions without data protection rules similar to those in effect in your area of residence.
Personal information may also be disclosed to law enforcement, regulatory or other government agencies, or to other third parties, in each case to comply with legal or regulatory obligations or requests.
By providing information through the NCBW MECCA Website, you are consenting to the disclosures described above.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
