Thank you for visiting the MainBoard Consulting’s Web site (https://mainboardconsulting.com).
We are committed to the privacy of our visitors. We collect no personal information
about you when you visit our Web site unless you choose to provide that
information to us.
Here is how we handle information about your visit to our Web site.
To better serve our visitors, we use technology to track new and returning visitors
actions while on the website. These small files are commonly referred to as
"cookies." Our cookies do not contain any personally-identifiable
information. Our web measurement applications compare the behavior of new and
returning visitors in the aggregate to help us identify work flows and trends
and also resolve common problems on our site.
Cookies are small files that Web servers place on a user's hard drive. They can
serve several functions:
they allow the Web site to identify you as a previous visitor each time you access a site;
they track what information you view at a site (important to MainBoard to ensure visitors find what they are looking for);
in the more advanced cases they track your movements through many Web sites but not the whole Web;
businesses use them for customer convenience to allow them to produce a list of items to buy and pay for them all at one time and to garner information about what individuals are buying at their sites;
advertisers use them to determine the effectiveness of their marketing and offer insights into consumer preferences and tastes by collecting data from many Web sites; and
they can be
used to help a Web site tailor screens for each customer's preference.
We will retain data the
technology makes available only as long as convenient and permitted by your
voluntary submission of information.

your computer by cookies, you can set your browser to prompt you before it
