Privacy and Confidentiality
1. Information Collected on the Site
MGSI does not request or require any information from anonymous visitors to the Site. We collect personal information only from those users who wish to conduct business transactions on the Site and users who have registered in Magsaysay Careers (“Registered Users”). Personal or business information means information about an identifiable individual or company and may include your name, address, telephone, fax number, and e-mail address. Personal or business information does not include business contact information (e.g. office address, telephone number) in those jurisdictions which do not recognize such information as being personal information.
The Site does not use persistent or stored cookies; however, it does use temporary or per-session cookies. Temporary or per-session cookies act as a randomly generated session ID; they last only while the Registered User is logged onto the Web site, and are cancelled at the end of the session (i.e., the Registered User logs out of the Site or closes their Web browser program). The Site uses temporary cookies for security purposes. The temporary cookie allows the Site server to continuously verify that the user is a permitted user as the user moves from page to page during a specific session.
We also use log files for anonymous site usage analysis. A “log file” is a data file that records a Registered User’s activity while using the Site.

MGSI stores information received from Registered Users on secure computers. Only a small number of Magsaysay employees and/or contractors of ours have physical access to these computers. We use firewalls and other security technology to prevent our computers from being accessed by unauthorized persons.
While we have taken measures to protect Registered Users’ information, please know that (i) no computer system is immune from intrusion; and (ii) information transmitted to the Site may need to pass through many systems in order to process such information. Therefore, MGSI cannot guarantee the absolute security or confidentiality of information transmitted to the Site.
