Privacy Policy

At Parents for Public Schools National Office® (“PPS”), we understand that privacy is important, and we are strongly committed to protecting the privacy of our customers and visitors to our website. The following information is designed to help you better understand the information we gather from our site and through our services, how we handle the information once we gather it, whether we disclose it to anyone, and the choices you have regarding our use of, and your ability to correct, the information. Please note that this Privacy Policy applies only to this site and not necessarily to other companies’ or organizations’ sites to which we link. By visiting this site, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

Information Collection and Use

We only collect names and e-mail address in order to provide quality service to our customers and visitors. Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience, to send you information upon your request, and to thank you for your support.

Aggregate Data

In general, we automatically gather certain usage information, such as the number and frequency of visitors to this site. This information may include which URL you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your IP address. We use such data only in the aggregate. This collective data helps us determine how much our visitors use parts of the site to better understand and serve you. In addition, we may aggregate data and disclose such information in a non-personally identifiable manner to advertisers and other third parties for marketing and promotional purposes. In these situations, we do not disclose any information that could be used to identify you personally.

Security

We care about the security of your information. We employ a secure internet-based email manager to collect, manage, and store the names and email address that we collect. We do not keep any other personally identifiable information on our customers. You should be aware, however, that “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet; third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. You should not expect that your personally identifiable information will remain private.

Sharing Information

As a matter of policy, we will not sell, share or rent information about you in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. However, we may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances. We cooperate with law enforcement inquiries, as well as other third parties, to enforce laws such as those regarding intellectual property rights, fraud and other personal rights. We can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringement or other activity that is illegal or may expose us or you to liability.
