that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy
applies to the PI Web site and governs data collection and usage. By using the
PI website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.
Collection of your Personal Information
PI collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name,
home or work address or telephone number. PI also collects anonymous demographic
information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences,
interests and favorites.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically
collected by PI. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain
names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by
PI for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to
provide general statistics regarding use of the PI Web site.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information
or personally sensitive data through PI public message boards, this information
may be collected and used by others. Note: PI does not read any of your private
PI encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link
to from PI so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share
your information. PI is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content
on Web sites outside of the PI and PI family of Web sites.
Use of your Personal Information
PI collects and uses your personal information to operate the PI Web site and
deliver the services you have requested. PI also uses your personally identifiable
information to inform you of other products or services available from PI and its
affiliates. PI may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your
opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
PI does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. PI may, from
time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular
offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally
identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred
to the third party. In addition, PI may share data with trusted partners to help
us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer
support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using
your personal information except to provide these services to PI, and they are
required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
PI does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion,
or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
PI keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within PI, in order
to determine what PI services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver
customized content and advertising within PI to customers whose behavior indicates
that they are interested in a particular subject area.
PI Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required
to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a)
conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on PI or the
site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of PI; and, (c) act under exigent
circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of PI, or the public.
The PI Web site use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience.
A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies
cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are
uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that
issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save
you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned
to a specific page. For example, if you personalize PI pages, or register with
PI site or services, a cookie helps PI to recall your specific information on
subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information,
such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the
same PI Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so
you can easily use the PI features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically
accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies
if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience
the interactive features of the PI services or Web sites you visit.
Security of your Personal Information
PI secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.
PI secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers
in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or
disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted
to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure
Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Changes to this Statement
PI will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer
feedback. PI encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed
of how PI is protecting your information.
