Use and Protection of Personal Information
Pathway Book Service (PBS) is committed to protecting your privacy. We will collect or record basic personal information (e.g., name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number) you voluntarily provide through our web site or through electronic mail you send to us, but we will not disclose this information to third parties. PBS will not disclose your basic personal information to third parties except when the release of such information is necessary to comply with law or to protect the rights, property or safety of our website. PBS does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 without obtaining prior, verifiable parental consent.
How We Protect Your Personal Information
We take appropriate security measures (including physical, electronic and procedural measures) to help safeguard your personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure. For example, only authorized employees are permitted to access personal information, and they may do so only for permitted business functions. In addition, we use encryption in the transmission of your sensitive personal information between your system and ours, and we use firewalls to help prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to your personal information.
We want you to feel confident using our website to transact business. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information, searches, or other communications will always remain secure. Users should also take care with how they handle and disclose their personal information and should avoid sending personal information through insecure e-mail. Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission’s website for information about how to protect yourself against identity theft.
