Information We Collect
We reserve the right to collect, store and use certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit many of our Web pages such as the type of browser you are using (i.e. Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, etc.), the type of operating system you are using, (i.e., Windows, Linux, Mac, etc.) and the domain name of your Internet service provider (i,e., America Online, Optimum Online, Netzero, etc.). In addition, we aggregate data from multiple users in a manner that is not personally identifiable and use such data as we deem appropriate.
How We Use the Information
Information about our customers is an important part of our business. That said, we are not in the business of selling personally identifiable information to unaffiliated 3rd parties for their commercial use. We share personally identifiable customer information with unaffiliated third parties only as described herein.
• Businesses We Do Not Control: At times, we may provide products and services on our Website in cooperation with an unaffiliated 3rdparty. When a 3rdparty is involved in your transactions (i.e., Credit Card processing) we share customer information related to those transactions with that 3rdparty.
• Agents: We employ, sub-contract or partner with other companies and individuals to perform various business related functions on our behalf. Examples include order/data management, technical/infrastructure support, analyzing data, the creation of business/site metrics and traffic statistics, providing marketing/promotional services, providing search results and links (including, but not limited to, paid listings and links), processing credit card payments or similar financial payments methods and providing general customer service activities. Agents may have access to personal information needed to perform their respective functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
• Promotional Offers: On occasion, we may send offers to customers on behalf of other businesses or our partners. When we do this, we do not give that business or partner your identifiable information.
Throughout our Website, we track user traffic patterns, analyze and quantify user preferences and improve the design, layout and content to enable us to personalize the user experience. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. We do not break down overall usage statistics according to a user’s domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in a browser). All such usage data shall be the exclusive property of this Website.
Private-Placement.com sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms that a user enters in our Search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.

If we create an email distribution list and you sign up to receive our e-mails and prefer not to receive marketing information from this Website, you will have the ability to “unsubscribe” from on any marketing e-mail you receive from this Website.
