Pierce-Arrow Society Privacy Policy 

This policy is applicable to the Pierce-Arrow Society website at www.pierce-arrow.org.

The Pierce-Arrow Society recognizes the importance of protecting the privacy of personally identifiable information collected about you. In adopting this privacy policy, our intent is to balance our legitimate interests in collecting and using information and your reasonable expectations of privacy.

The Pierce-Arrow Society does not collect personally identifiable information about individuals except when it is provided on a voluntary basis. For example, personally identifiable information may be gathered from the membership application, registration or access to the "Members Only" section, or submissions to the member's message board or PAS Emporium. Personally identifiable information on individual users will not be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties.

Users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (their name, or e-mail address, for example) by submitting an advertisement to the PAS Emporium or by posting a message on the member's message board of the Pierce-Arrow Society site, that information, along with any substantive information in the member's advertisement or message, can be collected and correlated and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters. Such activities are beyond the control of the Pierce-Arrow Society.

The Pierce-Arrow Society automatically collects non-personal information and data through the standard operation of the Pierce-Arrow Society's Internet server and/or through the use of "cookies." Cookies are small text files we can use to recognize repeat visitors, facilitate ongoing access to and use of the site, and allow us to track usage behavior and compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements. Cookies are not programs that come onto a user's system and damage files. Generally, cookies work by assigning a unique number to the visitor that has no meaning outside the assigning site. If a visitor does not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows the user to deny the cookie feature; however, users should note that cookies may be necessary to provide certain features available on the Pierce-Arrow Society Site.

These policies are effective as of March 15, 2000. The Pierce-Arrow Society reserves the right to change this policy at any time. This statement and the policies outlined herein are not intended to and do not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any party.
