Clearinghouse & Association Privacy Statement


S&K Manufacturing, Inc. is the Sponsor of PMCCA.org

Purple Martin Conservation Clearinghouse & Association (“PMCCA.org”) respects the privacy of its members and is committed to protecting the personal information of its members.  This Privacy Policy covers the site www.pmcca.org.  We collect no personally identifiable information about you when you visit our site unless you choose to provide that information to us or as specifically outlined in this Policy.  This Policy is incorporated into and subject to the Terms of Use (“TOU”) Agreement found at www.pmcca.org/tou.html.

This Policy describes our general principles for the collection and use of information from members to our Web sites.  We want to ensure that you understand how we will and will not use the information you entrust to us.  In order to fully understand your rights we encourage you to read this Policy.

For prospective and existing members, once you choose to provide us personally identifiable information (any information by which you can be identified), you can be assured that it will only be used to support your relationship with PMCCA.org.

What type of information does PMCCA.org collect?
When you visit our Web site, our Web server collects basic user information about you that includes your ISP's domain, the time you accessed our Web site, and the pages from within our Web site that you visit and is not personally identifiable information except as needed to prevent fraud or abuse of the system.
When you sign up for a PMCCA.org membership, you provide us with contact.  Contact information typically includes your name, address, email address, phone number, and where you heard about PMCCA.org.

While you are a PMCCA.org member, we manage information with regard to your member status and customer logs.  In addition, we may store customers' electronic mail and other communications as a necessary incident to the transmission and delivery of those communications.

How do we use this information?
PMCCA.org does not trade, rent or sell your personal information to any other organization or third party.

We use the contact information you provide us to establish our membership for you.  We create and maintain other information such as member status and customer logs in the normal course of providing membership.  By pressing the “submit” button, each member constitutes consent to use the information for purposes stated in this Policy.

PMCCCA.org may share customer information with selected partners/third parties, for example, to provide you with information about products which might be of interest to you or to enable you to take advantage of special partner programs.  PMCCA.org may also use customer information to provide members with system information or information about new or upgraded products. 

Our trusted affiliates are responsible for processing or handling some of the information we receive, such as order fulfillment for phone services.  Those affiliates are not authorized to use such information for purposes beyond those specified by us and are required to preserve the confidentiality with which we treat such information.

We may disclose contact information with your permission when gathering and posting testimonials.

We will not otherwise disclose customer personal and account information unless we have reason to believe that disclosing such information is necessary to identify, make contact with, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing harm or interfering with the rights or property of PMCCA.org, our members, or others.  We may provide information to regulatory authorities and law enforcement officials in accordance with applicable laws or where PMCCA.org has a good faith belief that the law requires such disclosure.

PMCCA.org also will not disclose to third parties the contents of any electronic mail or other electronic communications that PMCCA.org stores or transmits for its members except where: (a) it is a matter or public safety or policy; (b) it is in connection with the transfer of other business assets; (c) it is required to cooperate with orders, warrants, or other legal process that PMCCA.org determines in its sole discretion to be valid and enforceable; and (d) it is necessary to provide to a law enforcement agency when the contents are inadvertently obtained by PMCCA.org and appear to pertain to the commission of a crime

PMCCA.org disclaims any intention to censor, edit, or engage in ongoing review or surveillance of communications stored on or transmitted through its facilities by members or others.  PMCCA.org will, however, review, delete, or block access to communications that may harm PMCCA.org, its customers or third parties.  The grounds on which PMCCA.org may take such action include, but are not limited to, actual or potential violations of the TOU.

Please note that PMCCA.org may use this information collected to direct notices as well as provide you with other general information that may be of interest to you and information about our services or product offerings or the offerings of our business affiliates, as well as other important information regarding your membership or services at our discretion.

Third Party Advertising and Cookies
The basic user information collected is used to help us analyze Web traffic, improve the content of our Web site and improve your experience on our Web site.

We do not trade, rent or sell your personal information to others, except as detailed in this Policy.  We currently contract with several online partners who use the data only on our behalf to help manage and optimize our Internet business and communications.  We use the services of a marketing company to help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising and how visitors use our site. To do this, we use Action Tags and cookies provided by our marketing company on this site. The information collected by the marketing company through the use of Action Tags and cookies is not personally identifiable.  The information we collect helps us learn things like what kinds of customers our site attracts, which of our products most interest our customers, and what kinds of offers our customers like to see.  Although our marketing company logs the information coming from our site on our behalf, we control how that data may and may not be used.

We may at times also use cookies, which are small pieces of information that a Web site can store in a designated file on your computer.  Cookies allow a Web application to respond to you as an individual. By gathering and remembering information about your preferences, the Web application can tailor its operation to your needs, likes, and dislikes.  Most web browsers allow you to control this use of cookies.  Please take a look at your particular browser for instructions on this function.  If you elect to disable cookies, please keep in mind that you will not be able to take full advantage of a personalized experience on our Web site.  It is possible that some portions of the site will not function properly or may perform more slowly if you choose to reject cookies.

Our Web site may allow for a chat function.  Chat functions allow you to participate in “live” online conversations with us on our Web site.  Although the transcripts from the chats may be stored internally on in-house servers for our records only, we collect no personally identifiable information about you when you participate unless you choose to provide that information to us.

PMCCA.org has security measures in place to help prevent the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. 

Our Web site provides links to other Web sites, sites that may be maintained by companies that are not affiliates of ours.  We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites and we encourage you to use caution.  In particular, we recommend that you view the privacy policy posted on each site to confirm the sites policies are acceptable to you.  This Policy applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

PMCCA.org does not sell products or services for purchase by children.  Customers must be at least 18 years of age.  Any individual under the age of 18 (“Minor”) must have a parent or guardian accept the TOU in order for the Minor to become a Customer.  If you are under 18, we strongly encourage you to use our Web site only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.

PMCCA.org reserves the right to change this Policy simply by posting such changes on our site.  We encourage you to periodically check our site for changes to this Policy since your continued use of the site following any changes to this Policy will be deemed to constitute your acceptance of such change.  The operative and effective version of this Policy will be the latest version available on the site.
