Mexperience Cookies Policy

What is a Cookie?

A cookie is a file containing a small amount of data sent to the browser on your computer or mobile device from a web site. The file stored is stored on your device’s memory drive or chip.

A web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it. Your browser will only permit a web site to access the cookie(s) it has sent to your computer. Most modern web sites use cookies to track online traffic statistics and provide services which require the use of cookies to function.

You have the choice to set your browser to accept all cookies, to notify you when a cookie is being left on your computer, or to reject all cookies. Check your browser’s help section to learn more about this.

Web sites which offer interactive services generally require your browser to accept cookies in order for them to deliver their functionality and services to you.  For example, cookies are needed to keep track of any eBooks you add to the shopping cart before you check-out.

If you elect to reject some or all cookies, certain services on Mexperience may not be available to you and you may not be able to take full advantage of the resources offered by Mexperience; however, you will not be prevented from viewing Mexperience.

How Mexperience Uses Cookies/Web Beacons

We use cookies to provide services on the website and to gather aggregate statistical data and we use web beacons (which are similar to cookies) in our Newsletter Emails to help us manage the Newsletter list. Our web site uses a web traffic statistics program that tracks, in aggregate, how users of Mexperience.com are making use of our web site. This information helps us to understand how our website is being used and the data we gather helps us to understand what information users are interested in in aggregate. This statistical work does not personally identify any specific reader and we do not gather these data to profile or track specific users.

Data Protection / Use of Information

In line with data protection laws, Mexperience is legally required to disclose your information where the disclosure is required by, or under any enactment, rule of law or by the order of a court, for the purpose of, or in connection with any legal proceedings (including prospective legal proceedings); for the purpose of obtaining legal advice; for the purpose of establishing, exercising or defending legal or property rights. We will disclose any information we have in our possession in response to any legal or criminal inquiry or investigation and/or if, in our sole discretion, we believe it is reasonably necessary or appropriate to protect rights and property.

Personal data you share is treated with care and for the purposes of facilitating services you request via Mexperience, thus:

Your Consent: When you complete a form on Mexperience, or purchase an eBook from us, you consent to share any personal information you have provided on the said forms (“correspondence”) for us to use in its entirety and at our sole discretion to help respond, and/or facilitate with assistance, and/or provide services relating to the subject matter in that correspondence.  If you message us directly by use of a third party service; for example, directly by email or by using a messaging or social media service, your transmission of that message also serves as consent.

Newsletter: If you choose to register for our Mexico Newsletter, we will record your name, email address and the country you indicate to us that you live in on our Newsletter list.  We will use this to send you the free Newsletter.  You can unsubscribe at any time by tapping/clicking the “unsubscribe” link clearly placed in every newsletter email we send, or by contacting us directly to ask to be unsubscribed. When you unsubscribe, your contact information is removed from our system.

eBook Purchases: When you purchase an eBook(s) from us, we use your email address to correspond with you about the purchase, and your order details are kept on our system for purposes of transacting the sale and for business reporting.  Payment for eBook(s) is taken securely by PayPal, who have their own terms and privacy policy.

Contacting Us: When you contact us, you consent that we may use the information you share on the contact form and/or email or message you send to respond to you, and/or to refer it to any other parties in regard to your question or inquiry, at our sole discretion.

Referrals: If you ask to be contacted by one of our Associates about a product or service by completing an online inquiry form, your details will be stored on our system and sent to the relevant Associate(s) so that they can follow-up and make contact as you requested.  Mexperience provides an introduction service for readers to third parties; we are not agents or intermediaries, and any business you might conduct with third parties is done so on their terms, including their own privacy policy.

Comments: If you leave a reader comment on the website, the name and comment you enter on the comment form is published, but your email is not. Our comments system records the IP address as reported by your ISP: we only use this to deal with potential threats or illegal activity, we never use it to identify specific users.  We actively monitor our comments and reserve the right to not publish, or to review, edit, or delete, any comment left on our website.

Email Newsletter Opening: Our Newsletter emails contain a small image (sometimes called a ‘web beacon,’ similar to a ‘cookie’) which reports back as to whether an email has been opened or not.  Some email programs block these, but where they are not blocked (and/or you agree to load images) our newsletter sending system will record you having opened that newsletter email.  Our newsletter system will also record whether you clicked on a link(s) inside the email.  We only use these data for statistical purposes and to help us manage our newsletter list.  It’s helpful for us to know how many people are actively engaging with our newsletter, and we occasionally contact newsletter subscribers who have not opened and/or clicked for a long while, to ask if they still need the newsletter.  We don’t want to send newsletter emails to people who no longer want to read them; this technology helps us to keep our newsletter list current and clean.

Statistical data: We have access to aggregate, not personally-identifiable, data about the number of visitors, the browsers and device types being used, the approximate geographical location of the user, how long users remain on-site, and what pages are being read, as well as a range of other not personally-identifiable aggregate statistical data that helps us to measure our website’s effectiveness and popularity.  The service that provides these reports places cookies (see above) on your device. We use these aggregate data only for statistical purposes and to help us understand how we may improve our content and services.

Information We Share with Current or Prospective Advertisers/Clients/Partners

We may provide aggregate, non-personally-identifiable information to our current and prospective advertisers, clients, and business partners. For example, we may share information that tells advertisers that there are 10,000 people receiving a regular newsletter from Mexperience, but we won’t tell them that e.g. Joe Smith is is one of them, and we won’t tell them that his/her email address is ‘joe–smith@any–email.com’

Mexperience Working with Third Party Service Providers

We may associate ourselves with or employ third party service providers to help with certain projects or activities that will help us to improve our business or understand our customers or clients better. In cases where we need to share your personal details with these providers to undertake any such works, these service providers offer the same level of privacy detailed in this Privacy Policy.

Business Transfer

If Mexperience were transferred or acquired, the data we hold would be one of the assets that becomes transferred to, or acquired by, a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Mexperience may continue to use your personal information as set out in this Privacy Policy.

Privacy Policy Changes

Mexperience may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and at its sole discretion. Mexperience encourages its visitors to check this page regularly for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of the Mexperience website after any changes made to this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such changes.
