The Information We Collect
When you participate in activities on Protect People’s Web sites, you provide certain personally identifiable information (PII). Examples of this information may be any of the following: your name, email address, organization or organization affiliation, personal or organization address, personal or organization phone number, credit card information, personal and/or organization demographic information, personal shopping, contact preferences, and personal and/or professional opinions.
How We Use Your PII
We use your personal information to complete the transaction (including order confirmation and appropriate follow up) and/or other interaction that you initiated and to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Protect People Web sites. We may also use the information you have provided to send you mail or e-mail, or to call you, about new products, services, events, membership benefits or important information relating to Protect People or to contact you on behalf of selected organization partners we work with.
How We Share Your Information
Protect People does not share, sell, rent, loan, or give your personal information to any other companies or third parties.
When you submit content to a Protect People Web site or any other personal information you voluntarily disclose online (in discussion boards, messages, chat areas, etc.), it becomes available to the public and may be collected and used by others.
How to “Opt Out” of Protect People Communications
If you prefer that we not (a) contact you about new products, services, events, membership benefits or important information relating to Protect People or a selected organization partners we work with, or (b) share your postal contact information with select catalog publishers, other book and magazine publishers, charitable organizations, or other organization and/or general use resource providers, you can “opt out.” To do so, please e-mail your request to email@example.com.
When you subscribe to our online newsletters there are instructions at the bottom of your e-mail newsletter telling you how to unsubscribe if you ever wish to do so.
As is true of most web sites, we automatically gather certain information about visits to the Protect People Web site and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp and click stream data. This information is not connected to individual names or personal identities. We aggregate this information and use it to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
Protect People uses commercially reasonable physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to help protect against the loss, misuse, and unauthorized alteration or destruction of any content or information you may have provided at our sites. We use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving user data exchanged with our sites.
When you shop online at www.protectpeople.com, we use SSL (secure socket layers) to encrypt all information that you share with us, including your credit card number. Only www.protectpeople.com has the key needed to decode your information. You can tell if the page you are on is using SSL technology by looking at the lower left-hand corner of your browser window. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock, SSL is engaged and your information is secure. You also can look at the URL line of your browser. When accessing a secure page, the characters of the site address will change from “http” to “https.” When you send us e-mail over the Internet, the transmission is not protected from interception.
Once we receive your transmission of information, Protect People uses commercially reasonable efforts to safeguard the systems where your information is stored by, for example, storing information on our secure servers. In addition, only select employees are authorized to access your information and to maintain the database that stores your information.
Please note that we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to Protect People or that we store at Protect People. If, for any reason you are unable to connect to our server or would rather place your order by phone, please contact us.
