Personal information that you provide to Mancala Networks

We may receive and store any information you enter on our web site or provide to us in any other way. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of specific features or opportunities. The Personal Information you provide may be used for such purposes as responding to your requests for certain products and services, customizing the advertising and content you see, and communicating with you about specials, sales offers, new products and Mancala Networks events.

Personal Information Collected Automatically

We may receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with our web site or services. Mancala Networks may choose to automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, Mancala Networks' cookie information, and the page you requested.

Generally, our service may automatically collect usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our site and its components. Mancala Networks only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often customers use parts of the web site or services so that we can improve the website and services. As part of this use of information, we may also provide aggregate information to our partners about how our customers generally use our site. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use their services and our web site, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal online experience.

Our product automatically gathers certain information related to the usage and effectiveness of our online self-service support. We only use such data in the aggregate, and not in a form that would identify you personally. This aggregate data helps us determine how effective support service is, so we can improve our self-service tools and make them as effective as possible.

E-mail Communications

We may receive a confirmation when you open an e-mail from Mancala Networks if your computer supports this function. Mancala Networks may use this confirmation to help us make e-mails more interesting and helpful. We may also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending duplicate or unnecessary messages to our customers. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please notify us by e-mail at and include sufficient information for us to identify your account.
