As I started to develop our Privacy Notice, I wondered what Robert Macoy (the founder of Macoy Publishing & Masonic Supply Co, Inc) would have said. My sense is something like, " Of course we will keep the private information of our customers in a safe and secure place. Of course, we will not sell this information to others, especially non masons. We take our oaths seriously. We, being Freemasons ourselves, treat all who interact with Macoy Publishing and Masonic Supply "on the Level." And finally, if you ever feel we have not treated you this way, please contact us immediately and we will correct the situation."
His words would have been more appropriate to the 19th century since our company started in 1849, but the meaning is the same.
Call, email, or mail me any correspondence that can help us do this better.
