How MGME Collects and Uses Personal Data

  • From you, directly, when you access various parts of our Services, including when you communicate with us via email or other channels;

In other cases, some users may be able to access webcasts, online “meetings” or similar services hosted by registering with MGME, and in such situations, any Personally Identifiable Information that may be disclosed during participation in such services would be collected by the web-casting company on MGME’s behalf, but would be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

  • Communicate with you, for instance by email, direct mail, social media and phone or via MGME’s websites or applications and to provide you with customer service.

  • Fulfill a request made by you or your Company (e.g. reporting, questions, or other requests about your personal data);
  • Send you newsletters, marketing emails and other information or materials that may interest you, as well as showing personalized advertisements. Where required, we will obtain your consent before sending such marketing messages or showing personalized advertisements;
  • Generate anonymized or aggregated profiles and use such data for reporting and analytic purposes.

  • Your Company for reporting, auditing, tracking and other purposes as necessary with your Company, including those of its personnel they request we send or make personal data available to;
  • Third-party service providers you or your Company request we send personal data to (e.g. providers who secure compensation for delayed, canceled, or overbooked flights on behalf of travelers; safety and tracking information providers; companies providing weather information, travel alerts, and destination content through solutions and tools; entities who collect travel information on behalf of airline carriers for the purpose of such entities forwarding it on to certain airlines for tracking of negotiated fares between airlines and your Company; successor organizations and other travel management companies);

Data consolidation companies may also be used by MGME or your Company for the purpose of creating reports and related statistics for benchmarking or other related purposes, including, without limitation, utilizing cumulative statistical data, which may incorporate data acquired from your Company for ordinary business purposes customary in our industry and the Services we provide, but without identifying, directly or indirectly, you or your Company. MGME may be acquired, merge with another business, sell, or liquidate its assets, acquire, or buy other businesses or assets. In such transactions, personal data is generally one of the transferred business assets. In the event of an acquisition, sale, liquidation, or merger, your personal data and non-personal identifying information may be automatically assigned by us in our sole discretion to a third party.

Does MGME Disclose Personal Data Across Borders?

When sharing with or disclosing personal data to other parties, including to MGME’s related companies, affiliates, subsidiaries, joint ventures, partners, subcontractors, and agents who provide Services and maintain facilities, your personal data may be transferred to countries with data protection laws providing a lower standard of protection for your personal data than your country.

We will transfer your personal data in compliance with applicable data protection laws, including having adequate mechanisms in place to protect your personal data when it is transferred internationally (e.g. Model Clauses, data protection agreements). If you have questions or wish to obtain more information about the international transfer of your personal data or the implemented safeguards, please contact us as provided in this Privacy Policy.

How MGME Stores and Protects Personal Data

Typically, MGME stores personal data on its servers managed internally and with third-party storage providers.

MGME uses appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect the personal data MGME holds on its network and systems from unauthorized access, disclosure, destruction and alteration. We conduct periodic reviews of our data collection, storage, processing and security measures to verify we are only collecting, storing and processing personal data that is required for our Services and to fulfill our contractual obligations. While we make every effort to protect the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee, ensure, or warrant that our security measures will prevent illegal or unauthorized activity related to your personal data. When using our Services, you should be aware that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as totally secure. Although we strive to protect your personal data, we do not warrant the security of any data and information that you transmit to us over the Internet and you do so at your own risk.

In order to protect your personal data, we kindly ask you to not send us credit card information or other similar personal data to us via email. We also encourage you to keep your password confidential and not disclose it to any other person. If you are sharing a computer with anyone, you should log out before leaving a site or service to protect access to your password and personal data from subsequent users. Please alert us immediately if you believe your password or any of your personal data has been misused. Please note, we will never ask you to disclose your password or credit card information in an unsolicited phone call or email.

How Long Does MGME Keep My Personal Data?

MGME retains personal data for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by applicable law. When determining how long to retain personal data, we take into account the necessity of the personal data for the provision of our Services, applicable laws and regulations, including data protection laws and our legal obligations. We may retain records to investigate or defend against potential legal claims. When retention of the personal data is no longer necessary, the data will be deleted or aggregated for analytic purposes.


MGME makes available its online applications (mobile- and web-based) for download from various application marketplaces. MGME collects usage information for us to improve the application and to deliver an enhanced and more personalized experience. MGME may follow information on your use of our applications (e.g. anonymized statistics on the daily number of visitors, the daily requests for specific usage elements, the countries from which applications and Services are accessed). We use these statistics exclusively for measuring activities and for improvement or adaptation of Services for your benefit. We may also use Google Analytics or other analytics tools and methods to develop anonymized user statistics. MGME uses such statistics for the analysis of activities, the improvement of Services and for communicating findings and product improvements to your Company and other MGME clients and prospective clients. Such statistics do not contain personal data and cannot be used for the collection of personal data. In accordance with the applications’ terms of use, certain information about you (which may include your email address, itinerary data, and other information you provide voluntarily) may be shared with third parties as stated in this Privacy Policy.

Links to Third-Party Websites and Services

Our Services may contain links to third-party websites. Some of these websites may allow you to purchase products and services, register to receive materials, or receive new product and service updates. In many cases, you may be asked to provide contact information such as your name, address, email address, phone number, and credit/debit card information. If you use these third-party websites and/or provide your personal data and information, the privacy policy and terms of service on those websites are applicable. We encourage you to carefully read such policies on thirdparty websites before submitting your personal data.
