In addition, all sensitive information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. The current webhost gathers anonymous information about website and application usage to improve the operation and availability of the site.
Like many other websites, PPTFH.org makes use of log files. These files log visitors to the site, a standard procedure for hosting companies and a part of hosting service analytics. The information inside the log files includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks.
DO WE USE ‘COOKIES’?
Help remember and process the items in your request.
Understand and save user’s preferences for future visits.
Compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interactions in order to offer better site experiences and tools in the future.
We may also use trusted third-party services that track this information on our behalf.
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser’s “Help” or “Settings” menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.
IF USERS DISABLE COOKIES IN THEIR BROWSER
If you disable cookies, some features on our website(s) may be disabled. It may turn off some of the features that make your site experience inefficient and some of our services may not function properly.
We do not sell, trade or otherwise transfer to outside parties your PII unless we provide users with advance notice. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or serving our users, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release information when its release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property or safety.
In addition, we are required by law to maintain the privacy of your protected health information (“Protected Health Information” or “PHI”) and to provide you with notice of our legal duties and privacy practices with respect to your PHI. PPTFH contracts with The People Concern (“TPC”) for purposes of providing physical and mental healthcare services to PPTFH constituents. Accordingly, to the extent that PPTFH gathers or acquires any PHI, we will maintain all such PHI and disclose it to TPC only in accordance with TPC’s PHI privacy policies and practices as in effect from time to time. You may obtain copies of TPC’s privacy policies and practices by contacting TPC through their website at: www.thepeopleconcern.org.
We reserve the right to include or offer third-party products or services on our website. These third-party sites will have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.
HOW DOES OUR SITE HANDLE “DO NOT TRACK” SIGNALS?
We honor “Do Not Track” signals and do not track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a “Do Not Track” browser mechanism is in place.
DOES OUR SITE ALLOW THIRD-PARTY BEHAVIORAL TRACKING?
We allow third-party behavioral tracking pursuant to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, COPPA puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA rules, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online. We do not specifically market to children under 13.
FAIR INFORMATION PRACTICES
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information. In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices, as a responsive action we will notify the user(s) via in-site notification within 7 business days, should a data breach occur.
CAN SPAM ACT
The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.
TO BE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CAN-SPAM ACT WE AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING:
NOT use false or misleading subjects or email addresses.
Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way.
Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters.
Monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used.
Honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly.
Allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email.
If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can follow the instructions at the bottom of each email. We will promptly remove you from all correspondence.
