Unsolicited Communications

Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily post information to this Web site, that information can be accessed by the public. In turn, that information can be used by others to send you unsolicited communications. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in response to such unsolicited communications.

Transactional Data Processing

Mecanamix recognizes the importance of protecting and safeguarding transactional information. Your credit card data is processed within the requirements of applicable U.S. laws, regulations and standards by utilizing electronic, procedural and physical safeguards. Before you attempt to enter and then transmit your transactional data for payment, a secure encrypted session such as Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology is established so that your credit card payment is processed for payment in a secure manner. With procedural, physical and software firewall safeguards in place, Mecanamix and select partners (example, its financial institution) and affiliates also perform normal business operations on transactional data such as the processing of accounting records-reports, analysis of product purchase logs, and facilitate the investigation of any complaints. However, as effective as encryption technology and data masking may be, no commercially available security system has proven to be absolutely impenetrable. Thus Mecanamix complies with applicable U.S. laws, regulations and standards but cannot absolutely guarantee that encrypted information transmitted over the Internet will not be intercepted nor can we absolutely guarantee the secure electronic storage of your transactional information for it has been demonstrated from time to time that a determined hacker can develop tools to override or bypass security systems. However, in the event Mecanamix is associated with a transactional data breach, Mecanamix will cooperate with law enforcement to the fullest extent possible.


When you access this Web site, an information file named a “cookie” may be placed in your computer’s memory and accessed at several different points during your Web site session. A cookie is transparently collected information generated by Web servers that does not capture or extract your personal information. Rather, a cookie helps to identify items such as the server your computer is logged onto, your browser and session identification numbers, and to help authenticate when you implement a secure webpage to enter credit card transactional data [making an on-line purchase with your non-swiped credit card].
  • Mecanamix attempts to set and access cookies in your computer’s memory and may let its partners, affiliates and advertisers also set and access their respective cookies but the advertisers do not have access to the Mecanamix cookies. The cookies of those partners, affiliates and advertisers are also subject to their own privacy policies;
  • With most Internet browsers you can adjust your computer browser settings to be informed when a cookie is being placed, and you can accept or decline all cookies. Please refer to your browser instructions or its help screen to learn more about these control functions. If you reject cookies however, functionality can be limited as you must accept a cookie in order to use secure encryption technology (secure web pages) during your credit card transaction process;
  • On non-Company Web sites, linked from the Mecanamix Web site or not, the use of cookies is subject to the desires of the Web site owner’s privacy policies which may substantially differ from the policy of Mecanamix, to which we have no control over.

User ID’s, Passwords and any secure sessions

To obtain access to certain Mecanamix services such as your purchase of a licensed rights information product or technical author-writer access to masked product purchase logs, you could be asked to provide, or be provided personal information such as a User ID with Password. You agree that the information you provide during any secure session will be accurate, complete, and that you will not attempt to enter any Web site under the name of another person in a fraudulent manner. When you are finished with a secure session please make sure you “log out” and close out your browser as Web pages may be “cached”, meaning that some pages could be saved in your computer’s temporary memory (if you “Back” button, a previously viewed page may be shown). Also in some instances, you may not be able to access any secure session pages. This may be due to a hardware and/or software firewall being employed on the computer you are using, that in turn is configured to generally restrict Internet access – an issue for computers linked to some employer related network-server systems.

Changes to this Statement of Privacy Policy

Mecanamix reserves the right to modify this Statement of Privacy Policy at any time, so please review this Web page frequently. A user of the Mecanamix Web site, through the Statement of Terms Through Use, is bound by any policy changes after they are posted.
