“Cookies” and website logging
Some of our Web Sites will send a “cookie,” a small text file, to your computer. This allows us to recognize your computer the next time you visit, without bothering you with another request to register. If you do not wish to receive cookies, please refer to the “Help” file of your Internet Browser to learn how to either block all cookies or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. If you visit our Web Sites to browse, read, or download information, we collect and store some “visitor information” from you, such as the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet, the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using, the date and time you access our Web Site, and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our Web Site. We use this information to measure the traffic on our Web Sites and to help us make our Web Sites more useful. We delete this information after some time.
Safeguarding the information you share with us
We recognize our responsibility to protect the information you entrust to us. PPD uses a variety of secure techniques to protect your information, including secure servers and firewalls. PPD websites also may make chat rooms, forums, message boards and/or newsgroups available to you. Please remember that any personally identifiable information you provide in these areas is also available to other users, and you should exercise caution before deciding to disclose it.
Once you have provided us with your personally identifiable information, you will have access to that information so you can change or delete it. You may do this by requesting a copy of your profile at the contact address listed below. Your decision not to register now will not affect the information you have already provided to PPD. Of course, you will always have the option to unsubscribe to any online contact from PPD or change your personal profile information.
Special information for parents
While PPD Web Sites are generally not targeted at children, it is PPD policy to comply with the law when it requires that a parent’s or guardian’s permission is secured before knowingly collecting, using, or disclosing personal information from children. We strongly recommend that parents take an active role in supervising the online activity of their children.
