Security of your Personal Information
Michigan Licensed Beverage Association® strictly protects the security of your personal information. We carefully protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Your personal information is never shared outside the company without your permission, except under conditions explained above.

You also have a significant role in protecting your information. No one can see or edit your personal information without knowing your username and password, so do not share these with others.
