PDRbooks.com Privacy Statement

This privacy statement is designed to tell you how PDR Network LLC (PDR) uses and secures your personal information. This privacy statement describes the practices of www.PDRbooks.com; other PDR websites and businesses are controlled by their own privacy statements. Please review those privacy terms and conditions separately. As described below, this privacy statement relates solely to the online information collection and use practices of PDRbooks.com.

Information That We Collect

In general, you may browse online many parts of the PDRbooks.com without providing any personal information. The information we collect from website visitors is collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse PDRbooks.com, and is not used to identify you in any way.

If you want to interact with PDRbooks.com, you may register online by providing us with personal information. Registration is completely voluntary and free. When you register, we collect contact information such as name, address, phone and fax numbers, and email address.

We will tailor the materials we provide you based on the information in your profile, such as products and services purchased online.

How We Use the Information

In general, we use all of the information we collect in order to:

  • respond to your requests for information
  • provide you with products and services
  • provide customer service
  • provide you with additional information that may be of interest, including marketing and educational materials from us and our partners

If you purchase a product from us (such as a book or newsletter subscription), you may provide us with a credit card number. This credit card number will only be used to process your purchase. We will not disclose credit card numbers to any third party for marketing purposes under any circumstances.

Unless you tell us not to, we may also provide information about you to unaffiliated third parties. For example, like most publishers, we share our subscriber lists with selected business partners so that they may offer you products and services directly.

We may also share your information with other third parties who perform services for us, but we forbid these companies from using your personal information for their own purposes.

Please note that we may disclose any information as required by law, when necessary for health or safety purposes, or when needed to protect our legal rights. For example, we may disclose information about you in response to a subpoena. We may also disclose information about you in connection with the transfer of assets of our business. Additionally, we might sell or buy business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing privacy notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise).

Your Choices

We use good faith efforts to respect your preferences about our use of your information. We only want to send you information if you want to receive it. You may opt-out of emails by using the unsubscribe feature on the email communication or contacting our customer services department by email at pdrcustserv@usafill.com or by phone at 1-800-678-5689 and request the desired change.

If you do not want to receive information from other PDR valued business partners, you may opt out by contacting our customer services department by email at pdrcustserv@usafill.com or by phone at 1-800-678-5689 and request the desired change.

Accessing Your Information

We strive to provide all our customers with reasonable opportunity to access and update their customer profile information on PDRbooks.com. If you have disclosed information to us online you may access and update this information by following the link on PDRbooks.com homepage to your account profile. Our customer support department can also reasonably assist you with other requests related to information about you that may be maintained by us on PDRbooks.com.

Privacy Statement Parameters

This privacy statement describes the policies governing PDRbooks.com. It does not govern the practices at other PDR websites. Additionally, this statement applies to contact and other personal information maintained by PDRbooks.com. Personal information provided to PDR in other ways (such as in offline communications with those businesses outside of PDRbooks.com) will be covered by this privacy statement if such personal information is consolidated with personal information in PDRbooks.com.

The PDRbooks.com website may provide direct links to various sponsor and marketing partner sites, where you can apply for products and services (such as a complimentary subscription to an e-newsletter). This privacy statement does not describe the practices of our partners. Before disclosing personal information to any other company's website, you should read the privacy notice associated with that site.

Cookies and Website Information

Like most other commercial websites, we use standard "cookie" technology and web server logs to collect information about how our website is used. Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored by your web browser on your hard drive. The cookies allow our web servers to recognize the computers used to access our websites. Cookies allow you to move from page to page on the website, by remembering the information about the entire session.

Information gathered through cookies and by our web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our website, and the websites visited just before and just after our website. This information is collected on an aggregate basis and is not associated with your profile.

How We Secure Information Transmissions

Although no systems are completely secure, we have taken reasonable steps to help prevent the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. For example, when we ask users to provide financial information (such as credit card number), or any information during the registration or profile update process, the data is protected using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology.

Changes to Our Policies

From time to time, we may use customer information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in this privacy statement. If we make a material change to this statement, we will post and highlight the policy changes, and we will also notify you via email or take other reasonable steps to give you an opportunity to opt-out of new data uses.

Individuals Located Outside the United States

If you are located outside of the United States, please be aware that any information you provide to us will be transferred to the United States. By registering on PDRbooks.com, receiving our products or services and/or providing us with your information, you consent to this transfer.
