Collection of your Personal Information
We do not collect personally identifiable information from our users unless it is explicitly given through completion of the email subscription form. We may gather personal or non-personal information in the future.
Information about your computer hardware and software may be automatically collected by PLS. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the PLS website.
If you leave a comment or submit a message via a form the submission data – IP address, name, email address, and message is submitted to Akismet(also owned by Automattic) for the sole purpose of spam checking. The actual submission data is stored in the database of the site on which it was submitted and is emailed directly to the owner of the form i.e. PLS. This email will include the submitter’s IP address, timestamp, name, email address, website, and message.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through PLS’s public message boards or comment form, this information may be collected and used by others.
PLS encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from PLS so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. PLS is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the PLS website.
The PLS website may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize PLS pages, or register with PLS site or services, a cookie helps PLS to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same PLS website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the PLS features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the PLS services or websites you visit.
