For purposes of this Policy, the Site shall be the initial point of contact between you and PMP, and will serve as the point of collection of any personal data you may provide us.

Collection of Personal Information.

As a general rule, we collect both “Non-Personal Information” and “Personal Information” from our visitors and users.  Like other website operators, PMP collects “Non-Personal Information” of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring Site, and the date and time of each visitor request.

Also, collected “Non-Personal Information” may include information that cannot be used to personally identify an individual person, such as anonymous usage data, general demographic information that we may collect, number of clicks, platform types, preferences you submit and preferences that are generated based on the data you submit.  

Regarding “Personal Information”, visitors to the Site may elect to interact with PMP in ways that require us to gather information that can be used to personally identify an individual person, such as: name (first and last), email address and phone number.  We will also ask visitors who sign up for the Site to provide a username and email address. 

Purpose of PI Collection.

We will store your PI for the purposes of managing your collaboration with other users and clients, improve your user experience, send newsletters and contact you about inquiries for our services.  Overall, we use the collected PI to provide and improve our services.  Accordingly, we will generally collect, use and disclose your PI to:

  • Provide, operate, maintain, improve, and promote our platform and our products and services.

  • Verify your e-mail address and other account notices.

  • Develop, research, process, safeguard and improve our services.

  • Conduct research, analysis, and surveys.

  • Offer promotions, newsletters, send service related announcements and contact you about inquiries for our products and services.

  • Investigate and prevent fraudulent transactions, unauthorized access to our services, and other suspicious activities.

  • Monitor and analyze trends, usage, and activities in connection with our products and services and for marketing or advertising purposes.

PMP will keep any collected PI only as long as it is necessary, with regard to the purpose of its processing.  Upon the case of PI which is stored by our sub-processors, the data will be stored on their secure servers as indicated on their respective privacy policies from time to time.

If you do not wish to disclose any or part of your PI to us, you may still be able to use some of the functionalities of our Site, though we will not be able to guarantee that you will be able to enjoy them at their fullest if you elect not to disclose it to us.

 

Third Party Tools and PI Processors.

In order to provide our services, we use third-party platforms and tools.  Please be aware that such platforms are governed by their own terms, policies and personal data collection practices and policies.  Accordingly, by acknowledging your consent to this Policy, you are also acknowledging the applicable terms and conditions of such third party platforms, which provide functionalities that include the creation of aggregated statistics.  PMP may also collect aggregated statistics about the behavior of visitors to its Site, and may display this information publicly or provide it to others.   Upon the case of any discrepancy or conflict among this Policy and the terms of them, the terms of the latter entities will govern.

We will keep a list of any sub-processors that will be involved in the processing of your PI due to the provision of our service and will inform you of any intended material changes concerning the addition or replacement of sub-processors before such changes are effective, thereby giving you the opportunity to object to such changes.

This Policy covers the use of cookies by PMP and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

The served ads will be targeted based on your previous browsing history, and may include retargeting codes.  For example, third-party vendors may show you PMP’s ads on certain websites across the Internet, even after you leave our platform.  The collected information is anonymized, meaning it cannot be tracked back to individuals.  Using such tools, we learn how to optimize, and serve ads based on a user’s past visits, providing you with a better user experience.

We also collect data from your mobile device ID (i.e. the unique identifier assigned to a mobile device by the manufacturer) and/or Advertising ID (for App iOS 6 and later) instead of cookies in order to recognize you and track displayed web pages, along with their performance.

We do not currently offer “do-not-track” or similar mechanisms.  Unlike cookies, device IDs cannot be deleted, but you can select to reset your Advertising IDs in the “Settings” section of your mobile device, among other.

You can learn more about how to opt-out by browsing Google’s opting-out and privacy pages located at www.google.com, or the Network Advertising Initiative website located at www.networkadvertising.org.
