Our Commitment To Privacy
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.
The Information We Collect
There are two ways PTel (“PTel”) collects information about site visitors:
For all site visitors, PTel gathers general site usage information, such as pages visited, duration on each page, frequency of visits, and the geographical location from which the request was initiated, among other analytical data that would help us improve our site performance and usability
For new and existing PTel visitors (13 years of age or older) who wish to create an online account, PTel collects and stores personally identifiable information such as first and last name, address, email address, date of birth and gender. This information is used to identify the visitor and allow them to use certain functionality on the site such as commenting on articles. Though PTel protects user information with encryption and security infrastructure, the user is responsible for maintaining confidentiality of their account login information. Unauthorized access resulting from a user’s neglect to protect their information is the sole responsibility of the user.
The Way We Use Information
We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and improve navigation and content.
PTel does not sell or release your e-mail address to third parties. PTel may use your e-mail address and/or on-line registration information to offer you special promos and/or communicate with you in the future. PTel may communicate with you text and/or e-mail to inform you about new service features and changes to our site. Subscribers can opt out of receiving any communication from PTel.
Our Commitment To Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
Our Commitment To Children’s Privacy
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
Third Party Service Providers
PTel may use a third-party service provider to serve ads on our behalf. The third-party does not collect any personal information while serving such ads. PTel and/or its third-party service providers may provide aggregate information such as the number of users who visit a particular linked site to other parties.
We will not release any information about our visitors unless required by law to do so.
