By doing any of the foregoing, you assent to this privacy policy. If you do not agree with the terms of this policy, please do not engage in any of these activities.

1. INFORMATION COLLECTED ABOUT YOU AND OUR USE OF SUCH INFORMATION

The following describes the types of personal and other information we may collect about you and how we use and maintain that information:

Information We May Collect from You

In general, you may visit our website without revealing any personal information other than technology-related information described in the section below. However, certain sections and features of our website are only available to registered users of our website and/or purchasers of our services. We collect and store personal information related to each user ID when you register for an account, use our website, request services, and order any goods or services. We also collect and store any personal information and other data you have provided to us via our website, filling in forms, subscribing to our newsletters, requesting information from us or from one of our members (through our site), provided by email, information provided upon request in reporting a problem with the site, correspondence with us, or otherwise. Specifically, we may collect and store in a database your name, mailing address, and email address, and may also collect and store your phone number, date of birth and other information you may provide to us. We use Constant Contact, a third-party email service, operated by us as our email processor and utilize Google Analytics and xCatalyst Association Management Software in analyzing information and use of our website.

We may use this information to ask you if you want to receive information or access services on PCCC, ask you to complete surveys for research purposes and to otherwise communicate with you about other features of PCCC. We also use this information to respond to any inquiries you may submit to us, to track and monitor usage of our website and to communicate with you about your account and your use of our website. In addition, we may use this information to send you periodic information and other materials associated with PCCC, unless you inform us that you opt out from receiving such communications via email – or request the deletion of your information from our database. We also use this information to operate this website. We may also use this information for targeted advertising and other marketing purposes as subscribed to or for business members or consistent with services you order.

Website Information

Our website collects and stores information that is generated automatically as you navigate through the website. This aggregate information is collected site-wide and includes anonymous website statistics. Our website also employs browser cookies to store users’ preferences and record session information. “Cookies” are bits of information that are stored by your browser on your hard drive. This technology allows for the storage of user preferences, user ID and password, if applicable, and remembers you when you take action on our website. You can turn off the “cookie” function through most standard browsers; however, some features on our website may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled. PCCC does not recognize automated browser signals regarding tracking mechanisms, which may include “do not track” instructions.

In addition, when you visit our website our system automatically collects non-personally identifiable information through the use of tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a transparent graphic image (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel) that is placed on a web page and, in combination with a cookie, allows for the collection of information regarding the use of the web page that contains the tracking pixel. We use tracking pixels to tell when certain content has been clicked on or otherwise interacted with.

Our system automatically collects non-personally identifiable information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser language, domain names, referring and exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of these page views, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser, and information automatically collected by Google for its Google Analytics. This information is used to analyze trends, estimate our audience size and usage pattern, speed up a user’s searches, administer the website, improve the design of our website, recognize users when they return to our site, track user movement, store information about users’ preferences, and to allow us to customize our site and user experience according to individual interest, and otherwise enhance the services we provide.

To attempt to opt-out of the data provider cookies, please go to http://www.aboutads.info/choices. It is impractical for us to detail here how you can reject those cookies.

Other Information

We may retain any data you provide to us in an email or other inquiry, to track the types of questions we receive, analyze trends, administer the websites and services we offer, improve the design of our websites and services we offer, track user movement, and otherwise enhance the services we provide.

2. WHEN YOUR INFORMATION WILL BE SHARED OR DISCLOSED

We may disclose your personal data to any division of our organization including in association with other websites the organization may create. When you sign up, request, or use anything via the website, including signing up and or ordering of services, or give us any personal data as indicated above, we may need to collect information about you to sign you up, process the request, fulfill your order and provide you with the services you expect then and in the future.

We may also disclose information to other companies that we contract with to support or manage our website if necessary, including the use of information to gather your customer feedback through a third-party customer feedback partner.

We will comply with any subpoenas, court orders or other legal processes for any of the information about you in our possession, and we may use such information to establish or exercise our legal rights, or to defend against legal claims. We reserve the right to disclose information about you, including data on which pages you have visited, to third parties if we feel it is necessary to protect our systems, website, business, users or others.

In addition, information about you in our possession may be disclosed as part of any merger, acquisition, sale of company assets, or transition of service to another provider, as well as in the unlikely event of insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which your personal information would be transferred as one of the business assets of the company. PCCC does not guarantee that any entity receiving such information in connection with one of these transactions will comply with all terms of this policy.

3. OPT OUT

As noted, once you sign up with or communicate with PCCC regarding services, we may send you administrative-related emails, as well as emails to facilitate your access to PCCC’s services, including providing you with related updates. We may not offer you the opportunity to opt out of receiving these communications.

However, we provide you with the opportunity to elect not to receive other types of communications, including emails informing you about PCCC’s services, marketing and other offerings that we think will interest you. If you want to stop receiving these communications, forms provided will normally have a box to check to prevent such processing. You can also click on the “Unsubscribe" link in any such email.

4. SECURITY

Whenever PCCC handles information that you disclose on our website, regardless of where this occurs, we take steps toward upholding that your information is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy. PCCC uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. Information transmitted through our website is encrypted using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. Unfortunately, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems, but we do not accept liability for unintentional disclosure.
