Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to register for a program.
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can unsubscribe by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of our newsletter page. You can also check our website or contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to:
· See what data we have about you, if any.
· Change/correct any data we have about you.
· Edit or delete any optional data we have about you.
· Express any concern you have about our use of your data.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
When we ask for payments, that information is encrypted and transmitted from you directly to a secure third party provider such as PayPal. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use secure third parties to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information in other ways. Only PCA active members are granted access to the “members only” web pages and access is password protected.
In order to use this website or parts of this website, a user may have to first complete the registration form. During registration a user is required to give certain information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact you about the programs/services on our site in which you have expressed interest. At your option, you may also provide other information about yourself.
We may request information from you in order to register for, or buy from PCA, or receive a third party discount. You may have to provide contact information (like name and mailing address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for a secure payment service like PayPal or other third party services. If we have trouble processing a transaction, we'll use this information to contact you.
We use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.
We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
We may use an outside shipping mailing service, and a payment processing company to process transactions. These companies may retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond filling your payment or fulfillment.
We may partner with other parties to provide specific services (like PayPal). When the user signs up for these services, we may share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
From time-to-time our site requests information via surveys or the like. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and mailing address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level) and contact information. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site and services.
