PITTSBURGH DOWNTOWN PARTNERSHIP
Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership (PDP) is concerned about your privacy. We want you to understand what Personally Identifiable Information we collect about you, and how we use your Personally Identifiable Information. To demonstrate our commitment to your privacy, we participate in the TRUSTe Privacy Program.
What is “Personally Identifiable Information”?
“Personally Identifiable Information” (“PII”) refers to any information that identifies or can be used to identify, contact, or locate the person to whom such information pertains. This includes information that is used in a way that is personally identifiable, including linking it with identifiable information from other sources, or from which other personally identifiable information can easily be derived, including, but not limited to, name, address, phone number, fax number, email address, demographic information such as age, income, and zip code, financial profiles, social security number, and credit card information. To the extent unique information (which by itself is not Personally Identifiable Information) such as a personal profile, unique identifier, biometric information, and IP address is associated with Personally Identifiable Information, then such unique information is also considered Personally Identifiable Information. Personally Identifiable Information does not include information that is collected anonymously (i.e., without identification of the individual user) or demographic information not connected to an identified individual.
What PII does PDP collect and how?
Who collects this information?
How does PDP use PII?
We use the information you provide through the registration process: to provide you with the information and services you request; to communicate with you on matters relating to the Web Site and your account with PDP if you have one; and to provide you with information about related services and/or products from our business associates.
Information that is automatically collected regarding your activities while visiting our Web Site as well as demographic information derived from your registration and others may be aggregated and shared with associates and third parties, but only in aggregated form that does not contain any PII.
In addition, PDP uses information maintained about you, and other information obtained from your current and past activities to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and, if necessary, to enforce our rights. At times, PDP may review the information of multiple users to identify problems or to resolve disputes.
What choices are available regarding the collection, use and disclosure of PII?
You may at any time choose to disclose or not disclose the PII we request; however, if you choose not to disclose the requested information, we may not be able to provide you with some or all of the information or services you request.
If you do not wish to receive certain communications from PDP such as marketing communications, you may opt out by declining the service offered or informing us that you no longer wish to receive such communications. We will use reasonable efforts to comply with your request unless such communications are necessary for the administration of your account, required by law, or necessary to protect our rights.
Who does PDP share private information with?
PDP may disclose your PII to our affiliates and agents, as well as some third party suppliers and service providers to directly or indirectly provide you with services or information, and we may need to share your PII with them in order to permit them to provide such services or information.
PDP may disclose PII to certain intermediaries (third party services providers who do not store, retain or use your PII) solely to the extent necessary to provide the information and services you request through PDP.
PDP will disclose PII if required to do so by law, regulation, subpoena or other court order. In the event of a restructuring, sale of assets, merger, divestiture or other change of control or financial status affecting PDP that could involve disclosure of PII as an incidental result of a transfer of assets by operation of law or otherwise, PDP will notify you prior to any disclosure of your PII and provide you with an opportunity to request that your PII be deleted from all PDP records, or, to the extent such deletion is impractical, maintain your PII in a secured environment and not disclose your PII to any third party. PDP will use all reasonable efforts to comply with such requests.
How does PDP or its providers protect the security of PII?
How can I correct any inaccuracies in my PII?
You may at any time request access to the PII we have collected about you, and may request corrections or updates to that information. PDP will make reasonable efforts to respond promptly to all such requests, but reserves the right to limit such requests to two per year per individual. You may e-mail your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, you may at any time request PDP to delete/deactivate your PII by sending a request to the above e-mail address. Please allow at least thirty (30) days for us to fully implement such requests. In the event that we are unable to physically delete all PII, we will deactivate such information, e.g., we will maintain it in a secure area, but will not use, transfer, sell or disclose the PII to any third party.
You should also be aware that if you submit information to “chat rooms,” “forums” or “message boards” such information becomes public information, meaning that you lose any privacy rights you might have in that information. Such disclosures may also increase your chances of receiving unwanted communications.
Our response to such inquiries may be limited to information under our direct control. If you do not receive any acknowledgement of your inquiry or your inquiry has not been satisfactorily addressed, you should then contact TRUSTe at http://www.truste.org. TRUSTe will then serve as a liaison with PDP to resolve your concerns.
