Use of Anonymous Information
We are always looking for ways to better serve you and improve this website. We will use the anonymous information from you to help us make this website more useful to visitors. We also will use anonymous information for other business purposes. For example, we may use anonymous information to create reports for internal use to develop programs, products, services or content and to customize the information or services that are of interest to you.
“Cookies” and How We Use Them
Voluntary Customer Surveys
We may periodically conduct surveys. We encourage our visitors to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve the website user experience. Your personal information and responses are public, not confidential, even if the survey is conducted by a third party that we hire. Participation in any of our customer surveys is voluntary.
We take the information we receive from individuals responding to customer surveys and aggregate (combine) it with the responses of other ask4PD visitors to create broader, generic responses to the survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies, education, employment, industry sector, or other demographic information). We then use the aggregated information to improve the website user experience. This aggregated, anonymous information may be shared with third parties.
This site has electronic security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. While we will make every reasonable effort to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party “hackers” from illegally obtaining this information. Security measures are also in place at the physical facilities where our servers are located to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of information that we have collected from you.
Information About Children
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under thirteen years of age. If you are under thirteen, please do not provide us any personal information. If you have any reason to believe that someone under thirteen may have provided us personal information, please inform us immediately so that we can delete such information.
We may, from time to time, contact you by email with information about ask4PD that may be of interest to you (e.g. news updates). If you do not wish to receive such details you can opt-out of receiving further information from us by contacting us by sending an e-mail to ask4PD at [email protected] or clicking the unsubscribe button in the email.
Access and Choice
If you have provided ask4PD with your personal data, you may request to review, change or delete information previously provided to us by sending an e-mail to [email protected] Requests for changes to or deletions of your personal data should be made by you directly. We will retain your information for as long as needed to provide you services.
