Planned PEThood of Georgia PRIVACY POLICY

Planned PEThood of Georgia (“PPOG”) values your right to privacy on the World Wide Web. Following is a detailed description of the Privacy Policy for the PPOG website. However, PPOG is not responsible for the privacy practices of any website that is linked to the PPOG website. This Privacy Policy is subject to change.

Personally Identifiable Information

The “personally identifiable information” we collect on our website includes, but is not limited to, first and last name, street address, city, state, zip code, telephone and fax number, and email address. PPOG does not collect personally identifiable information unless it is voluntarily and knowingly given to us. Instances where users voluntarily give personally identifiable information to us include online inquiries, donations, requests for information or to be added to our mailing list. It is not necessary to register on the PPOG site to gain access to most of the information available on the site.

PPOG does not sell, rent, share or disclose your personally identifiable information with or to other organizations. You may amend your personally identifiable information or change the purpose for which it was sent to us (i.e., cancel your subscription to our newsletter or remove yourself from our mailing list) at any time.

How is the Personal Information Used?

Except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy, we will keep your personally identifiable information private and will not share it with third parties unless such disclosure is necessary and permitted by applicable law to: (a) comply with legal process (such as a court order) or other legal requirements of any governmental authority; (b) protect our rights or property; (c) enforce any terms and conditions of use or agreements applicable to our website and that incorporate this Privacy Policy by reference; (d) protect the interest of users of our website, other than you, or any other person; or (e) operate or conduct maintenance and repair of our services or equipment, as authorized by law.

The information you provide to us in the contact us form, including any information and views included, will be used to present our website and its contents to you, to provide you with information that you request from us, to fulfill any other purpose for which you provide it, and to have a way of contacting you in the future regarding the activities and services of PPOG and its affiliates.

How Is My Personally Identifiable Information Safeguarded?

We make every reasonable effort to ensure that personal information is accurate and complete. We rely on individuals to notify us if there is a change to their personal information that may affect their relationship with our organization.

We protect personal information in a manner appropriate for the sensitivity of the information. We use appropriate security measures when destroying personal information, including shredding paper records and permanently deleting electronic records.

We make every reasonable effort to prevent any loss, misuse, disclosure or modification of personal information, as well as any unauthorized access to personal information.

Accessing and Amending Your Personal Information

If after providing this information to us, you decide at some point that you no longer wish to be contacted regarding the benefits and services we provide, you can simply contact us by e-mail and stop the use of your personal information in this manner.

In addition to the information provided to us by our visitors, as you navigate through and interact with our website, we may automatically collect certain information about you and your actions and patterns, including total number of visitors, most visited sections, peak traffic times, browser versions utilized, referring websites, search engines used, etc. We use this information to improve the quality of the PPOG site for our audience. The information we collect automatically is statistical data and does not identify any individual.
