We will never sell, barter, or rent your personal data to any unauthorized third party. Period.
HOW WE GATHER INFORMATION FROM USERS
How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate, and the Services provided (as provided in any Agreement and the Terms).
Personal Data Personal Data is collected by your explicit provision of such data and your express consent upon your registration, access, and provision of such information. Such personally identifiable information is collected only for legitimate business purposes and may include: name, address, telephone number, date of birth, email address, and billing and payment information. Please note that this information (the “Personal Data”) is only collected to the extent you provide it to Planned Growth in order to benefit from and receive the products and Services from Planned Growth. For example, you may be asked to provide information when you register for access to certain portions of our Website, request certain features such as newsletters, or when you make a purchase. You may provide information when you participate in sweepstakes and contests, message boards and chat rooms, and other interactive areas of our Website.
Usage Data Like most websites, Planned Growth may collect additional data from your access to its Website or your use and interaction with its emails through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to our visitors (the “Usage Data”). As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through other means. This Usage Data does not personally identify you and may include data collected via the following:
- Tracking Technology Planned Growth logs IP addresses (a unique number assigned to every computer on the Internet) in order to improve security, analyze trends, and efficiently administer the Website to provide its users and Customers with the best experience possible. We may track your movement within the Website, the pages from which you were referred, access times, and browser types. We only use this information in aggregate and do not link it to you personally unless you explicitly consent to our email subscription service and become a subscriber. We may use anonymous tracking technologies to collect, store, and sometimes track information for statistical purposes to evaluate and improve the products and Services we provide.
- Cookies Planned Growth uses cookie technology to recognize you and hold information from your visit. Among other things, the cookie may store your user name and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular advertisement while visiting our Website. If you reject cookies, you may still use our Website, but your ability to use some areas of our Website, such as promotions or surveys, may be limited.
All information gathered is given with your explicit consent upon registration, use, or access to such features or Services. You can choose not to provide us with information either by not entering any information, by not registering for any Services, or by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but if you do you may be unable to access certain portions of the Website or Services and we may not be able to customize the Website’s features according to your preferences.
WHAT WE DO WITH THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Like other web publishers, we collect information to enhance your visit and deliver more individualized content and advertising. We respect your privacy and do not share or sell your information with anyone.
Personally Identifiable Information may also be used for other legitimate business purposes, including but not limited to Website administration, troubleshooting, processing of e-commerce transactions, administration of sweepstakes and contests, and other communications with you. Certain third parties with which Planned Growth has contracted for technical support or other services for the operation of our Website (our Web hosting service for example) may access such information. We will use your information only as permitted by law. In addition, from time to time as we continue to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge, or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. We may also disclose your information in response to a court order, at other times when we believe we are reasonably required to do so by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us, and/or to law enforcement authorities whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary. Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.
Planned Growth collects Usage Data, which is aggregated information that does not personally identify you and may be used in many ways. By using the Website and subscribing to the emails, you hereby acknowledge, agree, and consent to Planned Growth’s processing of the information as set forth above. We may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to help enhance our Website and Services (e.g., to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive). This Usage Data may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners. Again, this information does not include any Personally Identifiable Information about you or allow anyone to identify you individually.
AFFILIATED OR LINKED WEBSITES, ADVERTISEMENTS, AND MESSAGE BOARDS
Planned Growth expects its partners, advertisers, and affiliates to respect the privacy of our users. Be aware, however, that third parties, including our partners, advertisers, affiliates, and other content providers accessible through our Website, may have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices. For example, during your visit to our Website you may link to, or view as part of a frame on a page, certain content that is actually created or hosted by a third party. Also, through the Website, you may be introduced to, or be able to access, information, websites, features, contests or sweepstakes offered by other parties. Planned Growth is not responsible for the actions or policies of such third parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing information on a feature or page operated by a third party.
