As used in this Policy, the following terms have a specific meaning:
Personally Identifiable Information
PII is information that is about or pertains to a specific individual and can be linked to (identified with) that individual.
Aggregated information, demographic information and any other information that does not reveal the specific identity of an individual. Examples of Anonymous Information include, without limitation, page visits, time spent on a page, entry and exit pages, downloads, country, region, and locality.
An IP Address
The Internet Protocol address of the computer an individual uses to access the Site (and the Internet more generally).
When you access or use the Site, we may collect two types of information: (1) personally identifiable information (PII) and (2) Anonymous Information.
We will collect PII that you provide to us. Examples include, but are not limited to, when you send us an e-mail via the “Contact Us” page of the Site or sign up for our newsletter. We are not responsible for the use or disclosure of such PII by other Site Users and visitors. In providing us with such PII, you therefore assume the risk associated with any use or disclosure of such PII by other Site users and visitors.
When you visit the Site, certain Anonymous Information is automatically collected relating to that visit. The applicable web servers collect anonymous logs during user visits to the parcconline.org web site. This may be done through cookies, “clear GIFs” (a/k/a “web beacons,” or “pixel tags”), or similar technologies to retain information about you and your use of the parcconline.org Sites.
Cookies are small data files that are sent to your browser or related software from a web server and stored on your computer or device. Cookies often include an anonymous unique identifier and track and store your user preferences while using the Web Site as well as technical information about your use of the Web Site.
Most web browsers can be set to inform you when a cookie has been sent to you and provide you with the opportunity to refuse that cookie. However, refusing a cookie may in some cases preclude you from using, or negatively affect the display or function of, the Site or certain areas or features of the Site. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/.
We automatically collect data about your IP Address. Also, if you access the Site from a mobile or other device, your unique device identifier assigned to that device or other transactional information for that device may also be collected.
All of these technologies are designed to improve and personalize your experience using the Site. By using the Site, you consent to the use of the tracking technologies as described above.
We may use the PII we collect from you (as described above) to send you e-mail messages, mailings, or otherwise contact you in response to your requests. We may use your PII for our general recordkeeping purposes, and we may combine the PII we collect from you with other information, including both PII and non-PII obtained from other sources, including other Users, for purposes of analysis relevant to the Site and the objectives of CenterPoint.
Where you have requested to receive e-mail updates from us, we may periodically send you emails that promote or otherwise contain information relating to the use of the Site and/or the Consortium. When you receive an e-mail from us, you may indicate a preference to “opt out” of, and thus to stop receiving further e-mails from us, by following the “unsubscribe” instructions provided in the email(s) you received or sending us an “opt-out” request using the contact information provided below, as applicable. We will not provide PII to third parties.
We use the Anonymous Information we collect to analyze Site visitor behavior as a measure of interest in, and use of, the Site. This information is used to create aggregate statistics regarding, for example, when the Site is accessed, the pages which refer visitors to the Web Site, the type of web browsers visitors use, and which pages of the Web Site are viewed. These statistics help us understand how the Web Site is used and provide us with valuable information for improving the Web Site in the future.
We may disclose PII or other information collected through the Web Site in response to legal process or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, for example, in response to a court order, subpoena, or a law enforcement agency’s request. We also may disclose such information to protect the security and operation of the Web Site or the rights of other Web Site users, and to protect ourselves and our partners, affiliates, consultants, suppliers, and providers against liability, or if we have reason to believe that someone is causing or threatening to cause injury to or interference with CenterPoint’s rights or property, as well as to protect against fraud.
You may access and review the PII we have collected about you, and correct or update that information, by sending us an e-mail with requested changes. For your protection, we will only implement such requests with respect to the PII associated with the particular email address that you use to send us your request, and we may need to verify your identity before implementing your request.
We will endeavor to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable, including a request for deletion of PII from our records. We may need to retain certain information for recordkeeping purposes, and there may also be residual information that will remain within our databases and other records, which will not be removed.
Please note that we are not responsible for correcting, updating or deleting any PII information on the Web Site.
We endeavor to protect the security and integrity of PII we collect by implementing physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration or destruction. However, due to the inherent nature of the Internet as an open global communications vehicle, we cannot guarantee that any information, whether during transmission through the Internet, while stored on our data systems or otherwise maintained by us, will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others, such as hackers. This includes information provided to us by email, through direct postings on the Web Site, or through the “Contact Us” feature of the Site. In providing information through these channels, you should be aware that your transmission might not be secure while it is in transit, and that a third party could possibly view the information in transit.
We retain PII and Anonymous Information collected through the Site for operational, recordkeeping and legal purposes. We will retain PII about you for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Policy or our data retention policies, unless a longer retention period is required by law.
The CenterPoint Web Site is not directed at minors, nor do we knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under 13.
The Web Site may contain links to third-party websites. Our provision of a link to any other website or location is for your convenience and does not signify our endorsement of such other website or location or its contents. We do not control the websites, applications or other services that are operated by third parties and we are not responsible for the data protection and privacy practices of these websites, applications or other services. Thus, we recommend that, once you access any such other website, application or service, you familiarize yourself with the privacy policies and practices governing that other website, application or service.
