Midlands Management of Texas is the sole owner of the information collected on this
site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information
to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this
statement. Midlands Management of Texas collects
information from our users at several different points on
In order to use this website, a
user must first complete the registration form. During registration
a user is required to give their contact information (such
as name and email address). This information is used to
contact the user about the services on our site for which
they have expressed interest. It is optional for the user
to provide demographic information (such as income level
and gender), and unique identifiers (such as social security
number), but encouraged so we can provide a more personalized
experience on our site.
A cookie is a piece of data stored
on the user’s hard drive containing information about
the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally
identifiable information while on our site. Once the user
closes their browser, the cookie expires and becomes invalid. For
instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would
not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving
time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they
may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that
the user will be limited in some areas of our site. Cookies
can also enable us to track and target the interests of
our users to enhance the experience on our site.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends,
administer the site, track user’s movement, and gather
broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses
are not linked to personally identifiable information.
This web site contains links to other
sites. Please be aware that we [Midlands Management of Texas] are not responsible for the privacy practices
of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware
when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements
of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable
information. This privacy statement applies solely to information
collected by this Web site.
This website takes every precaution
to protect our users’ information. When users submit
sensitive information via the website, your information
is protected both online and off-line. When our registration/order
form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as
credit card number and/or social security number), that
information is encrypted and is protected by strong SSL(secure socket layer) encryption. While on a secure
page, such as our payment form, the lock icon on the bottom
of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft
Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked,
or open, when you are not on a secure page. While
we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online,
we also do everything in our power to protect the physical aspect of our users’ information.
All of our users’ information is restricted
in our offices. Only employees who need the information
to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk
or a customer service representative) are granted access
to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, ALL
employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy
practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies
are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about
the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do
to ensure our customers’ information is protected.
Finally, the servers that we store personal
information on are kept in a highly secure environment with limited access granted to administration personnel only.
If you have any questions about the security
of our website please Contact Us.

We send our users site and service
announcement updates. Members are not able to un-subscribe

requested services and in regards to issues relating to
their account via email or phone.
Correction/Updating Personal Information
If a user’s personally identifiable
information changes (such as your zip code), or if a user
no longer desires our service, we will provide
a way to correct, update or remove that user’s personal
data provided to us. This can usually be done at the member
information page or by sending an email to Customer Support.
Notification of Changes
If our privacy
policy changes, we will post those changes on our website so our
users are always aware of what information we collect, how
we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose
it. If at any point we use personally identifiable
information in a manner different from that stated at the
time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an
email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we
use their information in this different manner. We will
