Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information
or personally sensitive data through PPCCME public message boards,
this information may be collected and used by others.
PPCCME encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites
you choose to link to from PPCCME so that you can understand how those
Web sites collect, use and share your information. PPCCME is not responsible
for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the PPCCME

contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services
or of potential new services that may be offered.
PPCCME does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties.
PPCCME may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business
partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases,
your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone

PPCCME keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within

the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising
within PPCCME to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested
in a particular subject area.
PPCCME Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice,
only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is
necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process
served on PPCCME or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or
property of PPCCME; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect

The PPCCME Web site 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 PPCCME pages, or
register with PPCCME site or services, a cookie helps PPCCME
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 PPCCME Web site, the information
you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the PPCCME
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 PPCCME services or Web sites you visit.
