As you use the Website or Services, certain information may also be passively collected and stored on our service providers' server logs, such as your Internet protocol address, media access control (MAC) address, browser type, operating system and the firmware and hardware versions that you are using. We also use Cookies and navigational data like Uniform Resource Locators (URL) to gather information regarding the date and time of your visit and the solutions and information for which you searched and viewed, or on which of the advertisements displayed on the Website you clicked. This type of information is collected to make the website or services and solutions more useful to you and to tailor the experience with the website or services to meet your special interests and needs. 

 

An "Internet protocol address", or "IP Address", is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet.  In some cases, your IP Address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer internet access provider, your IP Address probably varies from session to session.  We, or our service providers, may track your IP Address when you access the Website or Services. 

 

"Cookies" are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer's hard drive while you are viewing a website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience with the website or services. Persistent Cookies can be removed by following your Internet browser help file directions.  If you choose to disable Cookies, some areas of the website or services may not work properly. 

 

We may also enable advertisers and ad servers to promote third-party products and/or services by placing advertisements on the Website.  These advertisers and ad servers may use Cookies and/or "Web Beacons" (which are usually small, transparent graphic images) in order to monitor information related to served advertisements.  Clicking on such advertisements will direct you to the website of a third-party and the advertiser.  This Privacy Policy does not cover the privacy practices of any advertisers or ad servers. 

 

 

Third-Party Websites:

The Website or Services may contain links to other websites.  Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other websites. We encourage our users to read the privacy statements of each and every website they visit.  This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by us through the Website or Services and does not apply to these third-party websites.  The ability to access information of third-parties from the Website or Services, or links to other websites or locations, is for your convenience and does not signify our endorsement of such third-parties, their services, other websites, locations or their contents.

MTI has put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to protect the integrity and confidentiality of your Personal and Visits Information.  Despite such efforts, please note that no company, including us, can fully eliminate risks or guarantee the security of your Personal and Visits Information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of information about you at any time, and we bear no liability for uses or disclosures of personal or non-personal data arising in connection with the theft thereof. 

 

 

Refund Policy:

 

We adhere strictly to our refund policy. If the detention facility cancels the visit for any security reasons, you will be notified and your visit will be refunded in full including the connection/processing fee. Any scheduled visit that is cancelled at least 24 hours prior to the visit will be refunded after deducting the connection/processing fee involved for setting up the visit. The visitor will NOT be refunded fully or partially if he/she cancels on the day of the scheduled visit. In the event that the visitor who scheduled the visit with an inmate forgets or missed the appointment, the visit will NOT be refunded. During any course of your visit, If Montgomery Technology Inc. or the Detention facility determines that you violated the rules and terms of use, your visit will be terminated immediately and the visit will NOT be refunded. If your connection is lost due to an internet problem or any technical issues, then the visit will NOT be refunded. For any reasons, once a connection is lost, the system will not allow you to reconnect to the same session, and any such instances are deemed as lost and your visit will NOT be refunded. (MTI highly recommends all customers to ensure that their connection is consistent prior to participating on a visit).
