Updated January 9, 2020
SCOPE OF THE POLICY
The Policy applies to the personal information we collect when you visit any MP website or use an online or mobile application where the Policy is posted (our “Sites”). The Policy also applies to the personal information we collect when you visit any of our retail locations (our “Locations”). When we use the term “personal information,” we mean information that is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked with, a particular individual, such as the individual’s name, postal address, e-mail address, and telephone number. When other information (such as shopping center location, consumer preferences or demographic information) is directly associated with personal information, we treat this other information as personal information.
CONSENT TO THE POLICY
By visiting any of our Sites or providing information at any of our Locations, you agree to the collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Policy. If you do not consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Policy, you should not visit our Sites or provide information at our Locations.
PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
We collect the following types of personal information through our Sites:
Information You Provide
We collect the personal information you provide when you use one of our Sites. This may include the registration information you provide when opening an account, transaction information, information you provide in public forums, and information you provide when you use our Sites or applications, our applications on third party sites, such as social networking sites, or when you link your profile on a third-party site or platform with an account you maintain with us, or usage, viewing and technical data provided when you use our Sites. It may also include location information when you visit our Sites, such as location information either provided by a mobile device interacting with one of our Sites or that is associated with your IP address.
We use the personal information you provide to deliver the programs, products and services that you request, or to process purchases or reservations you have made on our Sites. For example, we use the information you provide when you make a reservation to reserve a seat at the painting studio you select.
Depending on your privacy preferences, we may use your personal information to send you promotional messages and special offers. We also use your personal information for security and fraud prevention purposes; to better understand our guests; to improve our programs, services, and Sites; and to better market and advertise our programs and services.
At some of our Sites, you can submit information about other people. For example, if you order a gift, gift card, or gift certificate online and want to send it directly to the recipient, you must submit the recipient’s name and address. We use this information only to send your gift or provide the service requested. We will not add that person’s information to our mailing lists.
We may combine information you have provided to us on our Sites with information you have provided to us offline, and we may store this information together in your online profile. For example, we may combine data automatically collected when you visit one of our studios with your online profile. This enables us to better understand and meet your needs when you visit our Locations.
Information Provided by Others
From time to time, we may supplement the information you give us with information acquired from other trusted sources. For example, we may supplement your profile with demographic and preference data or we may correct mailing addresses by using public sources. By supplementing your profile, we are better able to provide product recommendations and special offers that will be of genuine interest to you. We may also use this information to further personalize our Sites and improve your experience while you are on our Sites.
Information Provided by Your Web Browser
We collect information that is automatically sent to us by your web browser. This information typically includes your IP address; the name and version of your operating system; the name and version of your browser; the page you were visiting before you accessed our Site; and the date and time of your visit. The information we receive depends on the settings of your browser. Please check your browser if you want to learn what information your browser sends or how to change your settings. Generally, we use this information to create statistics that help us improve our Sites and make them more compatible with the technology used by our visitors. This information is also used for marketing purposes and to improve your experience on the Sites.
We may collect IP addresses for purposes of system administration, to report traffic data to the management company and/or ownership company of the Locations (our “Clients”) and our trusted marketing partners (our “Partners”), and to audit the use of our Sites. Although the information provided by your browser does not identify you personally, this data can be combined with other data to personally identify you.
Cookies and Technology
We also use technology such as “cookies” to help us provide customized services and as a means to collect dependable and consistent traffic data. A “cookie” is a small piece of data that is sent to a user’s browser from a Web server and stored on a user’s hard drive. These cookies, along with other technologies such as Flash cookies and Web beacons, may also be used by MP Clients and partners on co-branded Web pages. Your Web browser may allow you to adjust settings, choose a Do Not Track option, or to disable cookies. If you choose not to accept these cookies, your experience at our Sites and other websites may be diminished and some features will not work as intended.
Third-party advertising servers are subject to their own privacy policies. Our service providers are bound by contract to keep your personal information confidential and use it only to perform services on our behalf.

DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Under limited circumstances MP may disclose, license or sell your personal information to outside Clients, Partners, marketers or advertisers for specific purposes. Those circumstances are described below along with some of the steps we take to limit the manner in which your personal information is used.
With Service Providers
We may share your information with companies that provide support services to us (such as credit card processors, mailing houses, web hosts, or providers of online reservation services) or that help us market our products and services (such as email vendors and agencies). These companies may need information about you in order to perform their functions. These companies are only authorized to use the personal information we share with them for the purpose of delivering the service we hire them to provide.

We may share your email address, and any third-party email addresses you provide to us, with Partners for marketing purposes, and the Clients and Partners may use your email address to communicate with you about products and events that may be of interest to you and for other promotional purposes.
If some or all of the business assets of one of our companies or Sites are sold or transferred, we generally would transfer the corresponding information regarding our business, guests, and customers to the acquiring business so that they can continue to operate the business, but your information would remain subject to this Policy.
In certain special cases, we may disclose your personal information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to you, MP or someone else. We may also disclose your personal information when we believe the law requires it, or in response to any demand by law enforcement authorities in connection with a criminal investigation, or civil or administrative authorities in connection with a pending civil case, administrative investigation or investigation conducted by MP.
We also may share your personal information in connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, financing or acquisition, or in any other situation where personal information may be disclosed or transferred as one of our business assets.

LOCATION INFORMATION AND MAPPING
From time to time, we may use technology that provides us with information about your geographic location (“Location Information”). We scan bar codes through the use of scanners at some Locations.

Location Information collected and combined in that manner is subject to this Policy.

Your current location is only used to update your location on the map and is not stored by MP. If you do not wish to see your personal location on the map, you can turn off GPS on your device.
