Petticoat Creek Press, Inc. ("PCPi") has a long-standing commitment to safeguard the privacy of information entrusted to us. The privacy principles and procedures set forth below are intended to tell you how we collect, use, and distribute user information via our primary public web site (www.AtEaseWithTheMedia.com). This statement also applies generally to all web sites operated by PCPi (and its affiliates). This statement does not cover information collected from sources other than PCPi's's web sites.
Types and Uses of Personal Information
If you use this web site, personally identifiable information about you may be collected and processed by PCPi's employees. In general, we only collect such information (such as your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, and type of business) when you knowingly provide it to us. Additionally, PCPi may automatically collect or process personally identifiable data (such as your Internet domain or IP address) as part of the operation of this web site or during the course of your activities on or use of this web site. In nearly all cases, this data may be collected or processed by, and transferred to, PCPi's facilities in Canada and the United States and in other countries where PCPi does business; the data is then subject to the legal systems of those countries. This may be done through the site's Internet Service Provider (ISP) or through the use of such tools as Google Analytics. This information includes (but may not be limited to) the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer, your browser type, the language and location of your computer and/or browser, the date and time you visited the site, and the pages you visited. This information is gathered to improve the quality of our services and our ability to market those services to specific individuals and organizations that could benefit from them.
By using this web site (which resides in part on servers located in Toronto, Canada), you unambiguously consent to any collection, processing, transfer or use of any personal data. If you do not consent to any collection, processing, transfer, or use of such information, please discontinue use of this web site.
Collecting and Using Information
If you use an organization's access to sign up for the AtEaseWithTheMedia.com training program, we collect certain information from you ("Registration Information"). Registration Information may include your name, title, street address, city, state, country, postal code, telephone number, and e-mail address, and any other information useful to our services. Registration Information is generally used to manage access to the training program, and ensure we maintain up-to-date records of those who have successfully completed it.
PCPi may share your name and e-mail address with affiliates or business partners of Petticoat Creek Press, Inc. in relation to specific media training services that you and/or your organization have requested.
If you used an organization's access, (the "associated organization"), PCPi will verify to that organization you have completed the online version of At Ease With the Media when asked, but will not provide specific test results (i.e. whether you scored 45 out of 50 to earn your Certificate of Completion or 50 out of 50) and will not provide information on any re-takes of quizzes that may have been required to earn your Certificate of Completion for this program, unless such information is specifically requested by the associated organization, whether after completion of a training program or module or as part of the preexisting agreement between PCPi and the associated organization.
Petticoat Creek Press, Inc. does reserve the right to use your registration information to contact you directly to verify that you are respecting the PCPi's Copyright Agreement, Non-Disclosure Agreement and License Agreement, if applicable. We reserve the right to contact you to provide reminders to complete the program within the time frame indicated by your organization (if necessary). We may also contact you to remind you that your organization's subscription (or your personal subscription) to the AtEaseWithTheMedia.com website is coming due and to ask whether you would like to renew that subscription.
Sharing With Affiliates, Parties and Suppliers of Services for PCPi Companies
We may share our data, including personally identifiable information about you, with our affiliates, partners, and companies or individuals who provide services on behalf of PCPi throughout the world. To the extent that these entities have access to your information, they will have agreed with PCPi to follow privacy practices no less protective than our practices described in this document, to the extent allowed by applicable law.
How Personal Information Is Shared With Third-Parties
Generally, and except as indicated at the time of collection, PCPi will not sell, trade, or disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties that want to market products to the user, without your consent. However, PCPi may disclose information to third parties assisting us in carrying out a transaction or providing a service for you (e.g., packaging, sending and delivering purchases and information to you, clearing credit card transactions, or performing statistical analyses of our services, performing promotional services and training services), or in connection with merger and acquisition discussions. Additionally, PCPi may disclose information when required by subpoena, search warrant, or other legal process, or in response to activities that are unlawful or a violation of PCPi's rules for use of the web site, or to protect and defend the rights or property of PCPi.
Other Uses Of Information
PCPi has implemented commercially reasonable technological and operational security processes to protect your personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, alteration, or unintentional destruction. While no security measure can guarantee against compromise, PCPi regularly reviews and updates its security measures in an effort to provide appropriate security for all information held by PCPi.
From time to time we may conduct surveys with participants of the online At Ease With the Media training program. These surveys are voluntary and you may opt out of being contacted at any time. However, by participating, you are helping us to improve the training experience for participants of future versions of At Ease With the Media.
On the secure portion of the AtEaseWithTheMedia.com website, your login information and password are considered confidential. However, this information may be shared if it is necessary to comply with applicable laws, or to assist law enforcement officials and/or the court and judicial systems.
