Internet Explorer has an additional feature where you can specify different settings for different security zones. You can choose to allow Web sites to create cookies for you in your "trusted sites" (like MindiWorld), to warn you before you create them in your local Intranet zone, and to give you an option to never allow them in a "restricted zone."

We use postal codes, selected within a radius of a venue, to send email, notifying members when Mindi will be preforming in their areas. You may unsubscribe from these notifications at any time.
This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that MindiWorld does not claim any responsibility for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.
MindiWorld uses a third party to process all financial transactions (membership fees, renewals and store purchases). The third party collects payment information from users (credit card number, etc.). The collection, storage, protection and use of this information is the responsibility of the third party and specified in their site policies. MindiWorld has no access to, nor responsibility for security of, users' financial information.
This Web site takes every precaution to protect our users' information, and we have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control.
Occasionally, our site may request information from users via Web surveys. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include demographic data (such as zip code and age), but nothing that can identify any individual person will be collected. Survey results will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
We may also send the user site and service announcement updates. Members are not able to unsubscribe from service announcements that contain important information about the service. We communicate with users to provide requested services and to discuss issues relating to their accounts via e-mail or phone.
Correction/Updating Personal Information
If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as zip code or e-mail address), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update, or remove that the personal data that was provided to us. Users can e-mail our Membership Chairman or Webmaster to change, correct, or remove information.
As a benefit of membership, our users are automatically subscribed to newsletters and site update e-mail messages. To unsubscribe from mailings, please see that section above.
