Effective June 2011 this privacy statement covers personally identifiable information and anonymous data collection through aggregate reporting.
Personally identifiable information is any general information that is associated with your name or personal identity (such as your name, address, social security number, credit card number, email address etc.). Anonymous (non-personal) data is information about usage and service operation, reported in aggregate, which is not associated with a specific personal identity (such as browser type, IP addresses, etc.).
From time to time, we may ask you to provide us with personally identifiable information about you through our Website. We use this information to better understand your needs and interests, and to provide you with better service. Once you choose to provide us with personal information, it will only be used to support your relationship with PCI and, in some cases, provide offers and information by our partners, subsidiaries, and affiliates.
Anonymous (non-personal) data is collected in aggregate for reporting about our website usability, performance, and effectiveness. It is used to improve the customer experience, usability and site content.
The Website also contains links to other websites. PCI is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of these other sites. We encourage our members, customers and users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website they visit that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.

Because we care about the safety and privacy of children online, we comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). COPPA and its accompanying FTC regulation establish United States federal law that protects the privacy of children using the Internet. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 and our products and services do not target information to children under 13. Our sites are not intended to solicit information of any kind from children under 13, and we have designed our sites to block our knowing acceptance of information from children under 13 whenever age-related information is requested.
It is possible that by fraud or deception by others, we may receive information pertaining to children under 13. If we are notified of this, as soon as we verify the information, we will immediately obtain parental consent or otherwise delete the information from our servers. If you want to notify us of our receipt of information by children under 13, please do so by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
