1. What personally identifiable information is collected from you.

At this point, we are not collecting any personal information from you unless you email us directly.

Some personal information may be gathered in the future should we have your register for any reason (such as a message board). This information would be used to assist you in navigating the system by automatically filling in certain forms (such as the ad posting form) with your information so that you don't have to continually re-enter it. It may also be used to help us get in touch with you if you request more information. Once you register you are no longer anonymous to Pitman Family Services - you will have a username and are able to take full advantage of the many offerings of the site.

If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence for future correspondence, but only with your permission.

2. What cookies are and how they are used

As part of offering and providing customizable and personalized services, we may use cookies to store and sometimes track information about you. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. The cookies will in no way give us any information. It is only to allow merchants to know that you visited their site from a link on our site. None of your information is ever returned to us from the cookies. The cookies from Pitman Family Services will never redirect you or cause you pop-ups. They will always be stored only in your temporary folder which you can easily remove from your computer by going to internet settings in your control panel.

3. How your information is used

The primary goal of Pitman Family Services in collecting any other personal information would most likely be to get personally in touch with you or in some way enhance your experience on our site. You information will never be sent to a third person without your prior permission.

4. Who is collecting your information

When you are asked for personal information on our site, you are sharing that information with only Sue and Charles Pitman. However, we are not responsible for information you might give to links that will take you off our own sites. You will need to see those particular sites own privacy statements.

5. With whom your information may be shared

As a general rule, Pitman Family Services will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or under the circumstances described below.

Pitman Family Services may disclose account information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) the rights or property of the Pitman Family Services, other users of the Pitman Family Services, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. Pitman Family Services may disclose or access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it and for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain, service, and improve our products and services.

6. What choices are available to you regarding collection, use, and distribution of your information

If you choose not to register or provide personal information, you can still use most of the Pitman Family Services, but you will not be able to access areas or use features that require registration.

You also have choices with respect to cookies. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject all cookies you will be unable to use those services of the Pitman Family Services that require registration in order to participate.

The Pitman Family Services does not sell or rent user information to anyone. We will notify you at the time of data collection or transfer if your data will be shared with a third party and you will always have the option of not permitting the transfer. If you do not wish to allow your data to be shared, you can choose not to use a particular service.

7. How you can access, update or delete your information

We will provide you with the means to ensure that your personal information is correct and current. You may edit or delete your user profile at any time by clicking on the "My Profile" link or graphic provided by the system once you are logged in. Once you have logged onto the system during a given session your information will stay with you until or unless you click on the "Logoff" link, which is accessible from within the "My Profile" screen.

Back to list.

8. The kind of security precautions that are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of your information

Other than the administrator or other authorized personnel of the Pitman Family Services, you are the only person who has access to your personal information. Your user registration is password-protected to prevent unauthorized access.

We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. Pitman Family Services will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. As an extra security precaution, you may want to logoff once you have completed a session in the any service that you registered for. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Pitman Family Services cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

9. How Pitman Family Services protects children's privacy

Pitman Family Services is a general audience web site. Children should always ask a parent for permission before sending personal information to anyone online. Pitman Family Services does not share personal information about users under the age of 13 with third parties and we do not sell or rent personal information about any of our users, regardless of age. In addition, Pitman Family Services will not send any direct email offers to users who indicate they are under the age of 13.

Back to list.

10. What else you should know about your online privacy

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example in ads that you post or through email - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.

Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're online.
