All MCC websites make use of log files. The data captured by log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and other technical information.

The MCC web site contains several pages in which the College requests that users provide certain personal information, including, but not limited to, contact information (name, mailing address, email address, phone number), unique identifiers (social security number, date of birth), financial information (bank account or credit/debit card numbers), demographic information (zip code, age, or income level) and other types of information to facilitate the registration process, administration of student accounts, and to provide information and other MCC services.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) ("Act") (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 C.F.R. Part 99) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student records maintained by educational institutions, and sets forth the process and conditions under which institutions may disclose said information. Generally, subject to provisions in the Act, the parent(s)/guardian(s) of a student have the right to access their child's education records, the right to seek to have the records amended and the right to permit or withhold disclosure of their child's covered student records. When a student reaches 18 years of age, or enrolls at a postsecondary institution at any age, the FERPA rights transfer from the parent(s)/guardian(s) to the student.
