You are not required to give us personal information when you visit our site. We may collect personally identifiable information (name, e-mail address, physical address, and other unique identifiers) only if you specifically and knowingly provide it. If we collect personally identifying information, we will use it only for such purposes as described at the point of collection. We do not sell or rent the information collected by our website to any other person, organization or business.

Internet Protocol / Routine information

As with most websites, we gather routine statistical information as visitors browse through our site. We use these statistics to make our site more useful to visitors and to improve the services we offer. Our website uses “Cookies.” PAM may use cookies to measure visitation to our website, including repeat visitors, and to perform certain functions such as order processing and registrations.

Credit cards

Visitors to our site may pay membership fees or make donations safely via our online sign-up and contribution service. The security of your financial information (credit card type, number, and expiration date) is a primary concern of the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota. The credit card services on PAM’s website are provided by PayPal via a link to that company’s secure site. Credit card information is collected confidentially and securely and is used only for your intended purpose.

Children

The Preservation Alliance of Minnesota will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 without first gaining consent from a parent or guardian. If we discover that a person under the age of 13 has provided us with any identifiable personal information, we will delete that information from our systems. If we begin marketing to children on-line and we are aware that those children are under the age of 13, the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota will take steps to fully comply with the Children’s Advertising Review Unit (CARU) and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). To learn more about both of these programs see http://www.caru.org and http://www.coppa.org.
