Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy describes how and when Model Citizen Press LLC (MCP) collects, uses, and shares information when you purchase an item from MCP, contact MCP, or otherwise use MCP’s services.

To fulfil your order, you must provide MCP with certain information, such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide MCP with additional personal information if you contact MCP staff directly.

Why MCP Needs Your Information and How MCP Uses It
MCP relies on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

  • as needed to provide MCP’s services, such as when MCP uses your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
  •  when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for MCP’s mailing list;
  • if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
  • as necessary for the purpose of MCP’s legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as providing and improving MCP’s services. MCP uses your information to provide the services you requested and in MCP’s legitimate interest to improve MCP’s services.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about MCP’s customers is important. MCP shares your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

  • Service providers. MCP occasionally engages certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services, such as delivery companies. MCP will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
  • Business transfers. If MCP is sold or merged with another business, MCP may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
  • Compliance with laws. MCP may collect, use, retain, and share your information if MCP has a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce MCP’s agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of MCP’s customers, or others.

Data Retention

MCP will retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in this Privacy Policy. However, MCP may also be required to retain this information to comply with its legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce its agreements. MCP generally keeps your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

MCP may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the United States and other jurisdictions. As a result, MCP may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If MCP am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, MCP relies on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. These rights are described below:

  • Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information MCP holds about you by contacting MCP using the contact information below.
  • Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict MCP’s use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where MCP is required to store data for legal reasons) MCP will generally delete your personal information upon request.
  • Object. You can object to (i) MCP’s processing of some of your information based on MCP’s legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from MCP after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, MCP will delete your personal information unless MCP has compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
  • Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about MCP’s use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
