Participation is voluntary and you will have the opportunity to decide whether or not to disclose information. At times, you may have to register to vote or to take part in a survey.
  • Cookies: As with many websites, this website uses standard technology called "cookies," which are small data files that are transferred to your computer when you allow your browser to accept cookies. Cookies automatically identify your Web browser to the Site whenever you visit the Site, and make using the Site easier for you by saving your passwords, purchases, and preferences.

  • IP Addresses and Click-stream Data: We may collect IP addresses and/or click-stream data for purposes of system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers and sponsors. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. Our computers identify your computer by its IP address. When you request Web pages from the Site, our computers log your IP address. Click-stream data is information collected by our computers when you request Web pages from the Site. Click-stream data may include such information as the page served, the time, the source of the request, the type of browser making the request, the preceding page view and other such non-personal information. When analyzed, this data helps us analyze how visitors arrive at the Site, what type of content is most popular, what type of visitors in the aggregate are interested in particular kinds of content and advertising, and the like.
  • Transaction Information: If you order any information from our Site, buy any of our products or subscribe for any of the services offered on our Site, we will ask you to complete an order form that will request certain information from you, including financial information such as a credit card number and expiration date and general contact, billing and shipping information. We will use this information to complete the transaction that you have requested, i.e., to deliver the information, products or other services that you order, and to invoice you. Such information is collected and stored through encrypted means for your protection.

How could the collected information be used?

We internally use personally identifiable information about our customers to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze site usage, to improve our content and product offerings and to customize our site's content and layout. We believe these uses allow us to improve our site and provide better service to our customers. We may occasionally use a customer's email address and, in rare situations mailing address or phone number, to contact a customer regarding administrative matters or notices. We may use information in the file we maintain about a customer to resolve disputes and troubleshoot problems.

With whom can the collected information be shared?

Information we collect may be accessed by a variety of parties, depending upon the project for which the information was originally collected. From time to time, we may send you offers from Proactive and its affiliates and our promotional partners based on the information you have provided us. In addition, we may provide information we collect about you with third party companies regarding promotions, sweepstakes and other opportunities/offers.

While we believe this disclosure of your information will result in opportunities that may be of interest to you, you have the right to tell us not to give your information to any third party. If you want Proactive to keep all of your information we have collected confidential and not share it with any third party, please contact us.

What choices do customers have about the collection, use, and sharing of information?

It is possible for you to use some of our site without giving us any personally identifiable information. When you do register with us or give us personally identifiable information, you can request at any time that Proactive not send future e-mail to you either by unsubscribing from the communication or by contacting us. Also, as mentioned above, there are ways to limit the information collected through technology -- though some of our features won't work if you decide to do this.

What security precautions are in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of collected information?

Security of all personally identifiable information associated with our customers and visitors is a primary concern of ours. Therefore, we use reasonable security measures efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information, including the protection of credit card data during transmission. However, please keep in mind that "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet and/or the World Wide Web. Therefore, we cannot guarantee complete confidentiality, privacy or security.

Chat Rooms, Forums, and Message Boards

The Site may make chat rooms, forums and message boards available to its users. You are not required to provide any personal information when using these areas but you may choose to do so. If you post personal information online, it will be publicly available and you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties. Proactive cannot ensure the security of any information you choose to make public in a chat room, forum, or message board. Also, we cannot ensure that parties who have access to such publicly available information will respect your privacy. Please exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information in these areas.
