Privacy Policy

  1. Overview - PMS Central. ("PMS Central"), a California partnership, is the owner and operator of www.PMSCentral.com (the "Site").
    This Privacy Policy covers PMS Central's treatment of personally identifiable information ("Personal Data") that PMS Central gathers when its users access and use the Web Site and when they use content and/or services on the Web Site.
    PMS Central knows that users care about how their personal information is used and shared, and we take your privacy seriously. Please read the following to learn more about our privacy policy.
    By voluntarily providing us with Personal Data, you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
    If you provide Personal Data to this Site, you acknowledge and agree that such Personal Data may be transferred from your current location to the offices and servers of PMS Central and the authorized third parties referred to herein located in the United States.
  2. Information Collected Through the Site: We collect Personal Data through the Site when you voluntarily chose to provide us with such Personal Data, such as through one or more of the following options:
    Personal Data:

    A. Registration. Our Site's registration system requires users to give us various Personal Data, including contact information such as their name, address and e-mail address, and demographic information such as a ZIP code, sex, medical information or income level. Such contact information is used to contact the user when necessary. Users may also choose (opt-in) to receive future mailings (as further explained in the choice/opt-in section below).

    B. Surveys and Questionnaires. Our online surveys and questionnaires may ask users for contact and demographic information. The user's contact information is used to contact the user when necessary. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings (as further explained in the choice/opt-in section below).

    C. Advertisers. We display advertisements on our sites that are provided by third parties. In some instances, users may request more information from these third parties concerning their respective products and/or services by clicking on such advertisement. Some of our third party advertisers offer to contact our users directly as a way to follow up a user's interest in its products and/or services. In such cases, users will be asked for their Personal Data, and by providing your Personal Data in such a fashion, a user is consenting to being contacted by such third party.

    D. Contests. We may run contests on our Site in which we ask users for certain Personal Data, as well as demographic information. The user's contact information is used to contact the user when necessary. Users may choose to receive future mailings (as further explained in the choice/opt-in section below).

    Other Information:.

    A. Demographics. We receive and store certain types of information whenever users interact with our Site. PMS Central automatically receives and records information on our server logs from users' browser including IP addresses, PMS Central cookie information, and the page requested.
    Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our Site and its components, similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show. PMS Central only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify a user personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often users access parts of the Site so that we can make the Site appealing to as many users as possible, and improve the content. This information may be shared with advertisers and other third parties on an aggregated basis, but it does not indicate the identity of individual users.
    Many companies offer programs that help you to visit web sites anonymously. While PMS Central will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these programs are available.

    B. IP Addresses. An IP address is a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. All computer identification on the Internet is conducted with IP addresses, which allow computers and servers to recognize and communicate with each other. Through the Site, we collect IP addresses in order to conduct system administration, report aggregate information to sponsors and advertisers, and to conduct Site analysis. If a user requests pages from the Site, our servers enter the visitor's IP address into a log. To maintain visitor anonymity, we do not associate IP addresses with records containing Personal Data. However, we will use IP addresses to identify any user who refuse to comply with our in-house rules or terms of service, and to identify user who threaten our service, Site, customers, advertisers or others.

    C. Cookies. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that a Web site transfers to an individual's hard disk for record keeping purposes. Our Site uses cookies during your online session to deliver content specific to your interests. Cookies allow us to avoid showing you the same ad or other message repeatedly. Our cookies do not collect or contain Personal Data. They do enable us to relate your use of the Site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided to our Site. PMS Central does not combine the general information collected through cookies with other Personal Data that would reveal the identity of a user, his/her user or screen name or email address.

    Most browsers have an option for turning off the cookie feature, which will prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, as well as (depending on the sophistication of your browser software) allowing you to decide on acceptance of each new cookie in a variety of ways. We strongly recommend that you leave the cookies activated, however, because cookies enable you to take advantage of some of our Site's most attractive features.

  3. Our Use of Your Personal Data and Other Information: We use the Personal Data you provide in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Also, if you provide Personal Data in order to obtain access to the certain services available through the Site, we will use your Personal Data to provide access to such services and to monitor your use of such services.
