We take our customer's privacy and security very seriously as we do our own. We keep up with this on-going, ever-changing issue on a daily basis as best we can.
When working at a customer's site, privacy and security are front and center along with the other many hardware/software issues found. Our customer's computer, server, website or data is guarded much like our own. We trust our customers and in return they trust us...which should be the default for all businesses and customers. For us it's the obvous way to do business.
We do not allow linked advertising for any non-MadMod, for-profit businesses of any form on our website. Our own link to "Dave's Favorite Places" has links to many business websites, but those are never actively allowed to advertise on any of our webpages. You don't need "AdBlock" to visit madmod.com so our entire website should always load quickly and safely in your browser.
Activating a link our website links with a mouse click is at the user's descretion with the user accepting the risks that may be present from any active scripts that may be at those non-MadMod sites. Even a respected company may unknowingly, temporarily have malicious scripts in their advertising scripts, videos or links because the extensive vetting process with many advertisers changing their multiple listings frequently makes checking at best a partial verification for even a large company with hundreds of links to advertisers--the best that they can do.)
All our revenues are derived solely from customer purchases of software, instruction, training and related hardware products. New customers either discover us through business cards, by visiting our website, or from recommendations/referrals by our many existing customers...which is all we ever need.
WOULDN'T IT BE NICE IF ALL WEBSITES HAD THESE SIMPLE PRIVACY POLICIES?
