  • Passive Collection of Information. In addition to the information which you actively provide to ML by methods such as completing the registration form, ML collects information about how you interact with our site. ML collects passive information for purposes such as testing and improving a user’s experience at the ML Site and the compilation of broad aggregate demographic data and related usage information for internal purposes only. The types of passive information collected by this site include, without limitation, your IP address, which kind of browser you are using, where you go on our website, and how long you stay on any part of our site.

  • Cookies. When you visit the ML Site, submission of one or more cookies may be made – a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. We use only “session” cookies; this means we store the cookie on your computer only during each visit to our website. “Session” cookies are used by our software for load management and database access. NO personal information is contained in these cookies. After you turn off your computer or stop using the Internet, the cookie is erased and nothing will be remembered the next time you visit our website.

Collection of Information

ML utilises passive information to learn more about how you interact with our site.  This passive information may be combined with your other information for purposes such as testing and improving your experience at our website and the compilation of broad aggregate demographic data and related usage information for internal purposes and disclosure to third parties such as advertisers and content partners.  This aggregate passive information does not contain any personal information which can identify any individual user.

ML may use your contact information periodically to send you e-mail regarding updates at the ML Site and to alert you or remind you of happenings on the Site.  The frequency of these messages will vary depending upon various factors.

ML will not knowingly sell, share, rent or otherwise transfer your information other than under the terms outlined in this Privacy Policy.  ML does not share any information that can be tied to you without your permission. If you give your consent to allow third parties to contact you, personal information about you (such as your contact information and other information collected during your visit to the ML Site) may be shared with builders, product manufacturers, data aggregators, marketers, and other organisations.  Regardless of your decision regarding the sharing of your personal information, we may share broad aggregate demographic data and related usage information with our business partners.  This aggregate information does not contain any personal information which can identify any individual user.

From time to time, ML may decide that it is more efficient to use third parties to perform specific services, such as sending communications to ML’s users. If we use a third party to provide specific services (such as sending notifications to our users on our behalf), then information (such as contact information) may be shared with that party to the extent necessary for the third party to provide these services.  These third party service providers are only allowed to use the personally identifiable information to provide the specific services requested by ML.  The third party services covered by this paragraph do not include links to third party sites found on our website, which are governed by a more specific provision below.

While ML strives to protect the personal information of our users, ML will release personal information if required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary or appropriate.


ML has security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse and/or unauthorised alteration of the information under our control.  ML helps protect personally identifiable information by utilising both online and offline security methods, including firewalls, passwords and restricted physical access to the places where your data is stored.  The third party Site Suppliers are trained to comply with our security procedures, and our security procedures are regularly reviewed and revised, if necessary, by the Privacy team at ML.

If you have any questions about security issues at our site, please use our contact form, and we will try to answer your questions.
