Overview

M Financial Group considers the privacy of our visitors (you) to be extremely important. This privacy policy applies to www.mfin.com and describes in detail the types of information we collect and how we use that information. This policy does not apply to any information collected offline or via channels other than this website.

We do not collect personal information unless you choose to provide it to us by sending us an email or completing and submitting our contact form. We do not give, share, sell, or transfer any personal information to any third party, except as provided herein.

If you choose to contact us by sending us an email or otherwise contacting us through our website, we will collect personal information from you, including personally identifiable information such as your first and last name, your email address, and any other personally identifiable information you provide in the content of your communication to us. For instance, if you contact us in response to any employment opportunities listed on our website, we may collect your first and last name, your email address, your mailing address, information about your employment history, and any other personal information you choose to provide us. If you "opt-in" by sending us an email or completing and submitting our contact form, we assume you agree to allow us to collect and save your personal information to reply to your communication, respond to your request, or contact you later.

What does M Financial Group do with this information?

Transactional Communications

We may use the personal information you provide us, including your name, email address, and the content of your communication in order to consider and, as appropriate, reply to your communication, respond to your request, or contact you later.

Marketing Communications and Electronic Newsletters

If you are part of a Member Firm and you have not opted-out of receiving promotional emails, we may collect and use your name and email address to send you our electronic newsletters and other marketing messages from time to time. If you are a prospective Member Firm, we may use the personal information you provide us to also send you messages with information about services and events that we believe you may be interested in. You may opt-out of receiving future newsletters and marketing messages from us by following the instructions at the bottom of the email messages received.

For purposes of gauging interest and to help improve our web content to better serve our Member Firms, if you are part of a Member Firm or a prospective Member Firm and you receive our electronic newsletters or other marketing messages, at times we may track the actions you take upon receiving the newsletter or other marketing message, such as the topics or articles you clicked on. This information is linked to your name, email address, and company name. This information is collected and used for internal purposes only.

Processing and Sharing Employment Applicant Information

If you provide us with any personal information as part of an inquiry or application for an employment opportunity, we may use your personal information to consider your application or inquiry and, as appropriate, process your application, reply to your communication, or contact you later.

Also, as part of our services to our Member Firms, we may post employment opportunities on our website on their behalf or generally assist them in their recruiting efforts for qualified professionals. Thus, we may share with our Member Firms any applicant responses we receive, whether they are in direct response to a Member Firm's, another Member Firm's, or one of our posted employment opportunities, or as part of an unsolicited response. If you "opt-in" by sending us an employment application or any other information about yourself in response to a potential employment opportunity, we assume you agree to allow us to share your information with our Member Firms for this limited purpose. If you do not wish for us to share your information in this way, please clearly indicate this in your correspondence to us. If we wish to share your applicant information with other companies who may be interested in your credentials, we will not do so without first contacting you and obtaining your consent.

Other Information Sharing or Disclosure

Except as otherwise provided in this privacy policy, and with the exception of our affiliates, agents, business partners, or third-party service providers ("Approved Users") who help make our website and its content available to you, who help us respond to your requests and inquiries, who help us administer some of our correspondence with you, and who otherwise help us better serve you, we do not give, share, sell, or transfer any personal information to any third party. We provide our Approved Users with only the information they need to perform their services, and we require them to protect and keep confidential your personally identifiable information. Although we use reasonable precautions to ensure that Approved Users protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee that they will protect your personal information to the same extent as described in this privacy policy.

Also, without limiting the foregoing, we reserve the right to use or disclose any personal information as needed to satisfy any law, regulation, or legal request, to conduct investigations of consumer complaints or possible breaches of law, to protect the integrity of our website, to fulfill your requests, or to cooperate with any legal investigation. Additionally, if we are bought or acquired by another company, merged with another company, or go through reorganization or bankruptcy, your information may be disclosed to prospective investors, buyers, or other acquirers or successors of M Financial Group in connection with the applicable transaction (and in the case of an acquisition, we may transfer the information collected through our website to the purchaser as part of the sale).
