PftPI has created this privacy notice to explain how we use information that you may provide while visiting our website and to demonstrate our firm commitment to Internet privacy. PftPI may modify this policy from time to time so we encourage you to check this page when revisiting this website. The following discloses our information gathering and
dissemination practices for this website. The type and amount of information received depends on how you use the site.
- a. Website Usage/Information Collection
- When you visit the PftPI website, we automatically obtain information from you about the name of your Internet service provider, the browser and type of computer you are using, the website that referred you to us, the pages you request and the date and time of those requests. We use this information on an aggregate basis to generate statistics and measure site activity to improve the usefulness of the site to our visitors. For example, we may use this information to track which pages are most popular among visitors as a whole. We do not track the pages you or any individual visitor may look at during a visit to our site and we do not collect any other information without your knowledge and permission. We do not collect or store personally identifiable information, such as your name or email address unless you separately provide that information to us.
- b. Collection of Personally Identifiable Information
- PftPI provides a registration page so you may provide your contact information to submit a story, share an idea or comment on this website. Any information we collect, such as your name, state, email address, type of activity you engage in and any additional information you provide, is collected and stored by PftPI. The information is used to fulfill your request, track aggregate information about usage of these features and to contact you in the event that your story is chosen as a finalist or the winner of online voting. In the event that your story is chosen as “Most Compelling” in online voting, PftPI will send you an email notifying you of this development. In the event that your idea is selected for inclusion in a briefing book or other document, PftPI will send you an email notifying you of this development. PftPI makes every effort to ensure the security in collection and transmission of your sensitive information.
- c. PftPI’s Sharing of Personally Identifiable Information
- If you agree to share your email address with our endorsing organizations, PftPI will make that information available to those organizations. If you agree to share your contact information with the media in the event such an inquiry is made, PftPI may share your contact information with media outlets. If you agree to receive updates from PftPI, we will regularly update you on issues relevant to the theme and purpose of the PftPI.org website.
Otherwise, all of your personal information is kept confidential and is for the sole use of PftPI. We will never sell, rent or otherwise provide your personal information to any other organization.
- The PftPI website will never post your personal contact information, beyond identifying nickname and state, on the website without your consent. PftPI reserves the right to edit any and all submissions to the site for anonymity.

- f. Security
- This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. All user information is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need information to perform a specific job (e.g., notifying an individual of inclusion in the briefing book or selection as “Most Compelling” story) are granted access to email addresses or other identifying information. All employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Finally, the servers that store sensitive information are kept in a secure environment.
