This Privacy Statement describes how your personal information is collected, used, shared, and safeguarded by PR for People®.
Information Collection & Use
Uses of Information
PR for People uses the personally identifiable information you provide us to communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account. Any personally identifiable information gathered by us will be used for internal purposes only. We will not disclose or divulge such data outside of PR for People unless you give us express permission to do so. An example would be to provide your direct contact information to a bona fide* member of the press who intends to interview you for a news story.
*A bona fide member of the press is defined as a journalist who is listed in two top media databases, Cison and PR Newswire. These journalists have a proprietary pitching profile, a history of writing, and news credits.
Communications from the Site
Special Offers and Updates
We may occasionally send you information on PR for People products or services. We will send you our digital magazine and email news digests.
Out of respect for your privacy, we present the option not to receive these types of communications. Please see the “Choice/Opt-Out” section.
Based upon the personally identifiable information you provide us, we may send you a welcoming email to verify your username and password. We will also communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account. We will communicate with you by email or telephone, in accordance with your wishes.
We store information that we collect through cookies, log files, and clear gifs, to create a “press kit” of your preferences. We will link your personally identifiable information to your website actions, to information in the profile, in order to provide a more accurate understanding of the website’s usage.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Aggregate Information (non-personally identifiable)
PR for People does not share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers, in ways that directly identify you.
Personally Identifiable Information
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our website.
If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by emailing us at the appropriate contact associated with our website found in the contact section of this privacy statement below.
You will be notified when your personal information is collected by any third party that is not our agent/service provider, so you can make an informed choice as to whether or not to share your information with that party.
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
On our website, we do link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information. IP addresses are tied to personally identifiable information to help identify individual web site usage.
Links to Other Sites
This website contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by PR for People and we are not responsible for the privacy practices of non-PR for People websites linked to the PR for People site. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of other linked web sites when you leave our website. This privacy statement applies only to information collected by this website.
Access to Personally Identifiable Information
If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may update or deactivate it by contacting us at the contact information listed below.
PR for People takes reasonable precautions to protect your personal information. The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100 percent secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
