We are concerned about your privacy, and we want to describe how we collect and use your Personal Information (as defined below). This Privacy Policy sets forth the online data collection, processing, storage, transfer, and usage policies of Method Technologies, Inc. ("Method Technologies", "us", "we", and "our" are used interchangeably) as used on this website, our client portal (the "Portal"), and the mobile versions of both (this "Site") that apply to you, the user ("User" or "you"). This Privacy Policy does not apply to information collected through any other web site, mobile application, or service that we do not control. By using or accessing our Site, you agree to all of the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with these terms and conditions, do not use the Site.


2. Use of Personal Information and Payment Information

"Personal Information" is unique information that identifies you. Personal Information includes information such as your name, physical address, email address, and telephone number. We may also ask you for financial information for payment purposes through the Portal, including, but not limited to your billing name; billing address; credit, debit, bank card, or PayPal account information; or any other information that we, in our sole discretion, deem appropriate ("Payment Information"). We store your Payment Information on our database (except for security codes) to process your order. Once you provide us with your Payment Information, we will forward the information to our third party payment processor, who will only use your Payment Information to process your payment of the ordered products. We keep your Payment Information on a secure system with access limited to our staff who handle the processing of payments.


We collect your Personal Information so you can place orders, request information and support, file support tickets, and view usage reports. Upon receiving your request for a user account, we will process your request, and if approved, create an account for you. If you contact us for support or file a support ticket on our Portal, we will keep an internal record of what support was given. Such support will be governed by a further agreement between us. Additionally, when you contact us through our Site’s contact page, you consent to be added to our mailing list, which will send you emails regarding our web site, new Method Technologies services, and special offers we think you'll find valuable. If you would rather not receive this information, please follow the link included in the emails to unsubscribe or email us at info@mtinc.net so that we can change your preferences. Please be aware that even after you unsubscribe, we may retain information about you to make sure you remain unsubscribed until requested to re-subscribe to our mailing list. We will not give any information about you to third parties without your express permission, except to protect our legal rights, to protect members of the public, and as otherwise required by law.
