PersonTrust.com (the “Site”) is owned and operated by PersonTrust, Inc. (“PersonTrust”, "we" or "us"). This policy outlines all of the steps we take to protect your privacy and what we do with your information that you provide to us through the Site.
We use SSL-encryption technology when transferring and receiving consumer data on the Site to protect your personal information. The servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment. However, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personally Identifiable Information, you acknowledge that there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control; the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through the Site cannot be guaranteed; and any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party. We make no warranty, express, implied, or otherwise, that we will prevent unauthorized access to your private information. WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT: In order to provide you with our services, we collect two types of information about our users: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. We gather certain information about you based upon where you visit on the Site in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Site's Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web. An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks like the Web use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web, allowing web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet.
When you use the Site we will store cookies on your computer in order to facilitate and customize your use of the Site. A cookie is a small data text file, which a website stores on your computer's hard drive (if your Web browser permits) that can later be retrieved to identify you to us. The cookies make your use of the site easier, make the site run more smoothly and help us to maintain a secure site. In the event that your browser request that we do not track you or store a cookie, our website is unable to honor such requests.
We may use an outside ad serving company to display banner advertisements on the Site. As part of their service, they will place a separate cookie on your computer. We will not provide any such third-party ad server with your Personally Identifiable Information. In addition, other advertisers may also place banner ads on the Site, and we will not disclose any Personally Identifiable Information to them.
We and our third party ad server may collect and use Non-Personally Identifiable Information about you, such as your IP address, browser type, the server your computer is logged onto, the area code and zip code associated with your server and whether you responded to a particular ad. In the event that your browser request that we do not track you or store a cookie, the Site is unable to honor such requests.
For example, we must release your credit card or debit card information to the card-issuing bank to confirm payment for products and services purchased on the Site; release your Personally Identifiable Information to the third party that will provide the products or services that you ordered; and provide order information to third parties that help us provide customer service. We will encourage our service providers to adopt and post privacy policies. However, the use of your Personally Identifiable Information by our service providers is governed by the privacy policies of those service providers, and is not subject to our control.
We may also provide Non-Personally Identifiable Information about our customers' sales, traffic patterns, and related information to third party advertisers, but these statistics do not include any Personally Identifiable Information.
Occasionally we may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide Personally Identifiable Information to the appropriate governmental authorities. We will disclose Personally Identifiable Information upon receipt of a court order, subpoena, or to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation. We fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities. We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we in good faith believe to be unlawful.
From time to time we or our marketing partners will send you email newsletters and updates announcing special offers and/or new features as well as materials that are promotional in nature. These email updates may also include offers from our marketing partners that you may be interested in. As part of our service you will receive these updates. If you want to update your email address or stop receiving any of the updates, follow the unsubscribe procedures at the bottom of any newsletter or update we send you. We reserve the right to rent, sell and share your Personally Identifiable Information with our third-party partners. Our third-party partners may send you advertisements and special offers that may be of interest to you.
