When visiting the PATH website, visitors provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis and Web site use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse the PATH website.
Personal information you choose to provide PATH:
PATH may request that you voluntarily supply personal information, including your e-mail address, postal address, home or work telephone number and other personal information for such purposes as correspondence, placing an order, requesting an estimate, or participating in online surveys.
If you choose to correspond through email, PATH may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. PATH provides the same protections for these electronic communications employed in the maintenance of information received by mail and telephone.
Similar to other commercial websites, the PATH website may utilize a standard technology called “cookies” (see explanation below, “What Are Cookies?”) and web server logs to collect information about how the website is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at the website, and the websites visited just before and just after the PATH website. This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual.
Broadly speaking, PATH uses personal information for purposes of administering business activities, providing customer service and making available other products and services to customers and prospective customers. Occasionally, PATH may also use the information collected to notify you about important changes to the website, new services, and special offers you may find valuable. The lists used to send you product and service offers are developed and managed under PATH traditional corporate standards designed to safeguard the security and privacy of customers’ personal information. You are allowed at any time to notify PATH of your desire not to receive these offers.
Cookies are a feature of web browser software that allows web servers to recognize the computer used to access a website. Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored by a user’s web browser on the user’s hard drive. Cookies can remember what information a user accesses on one webpage to simplify subsequent interactions with that website by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user’s transactions on related web pages. This makes it easier for a user to move from web page to web page and to complete commercial transactions over the internet. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalized.
PATH uses website browser software tools such as cookies and web server logs to gather information about website users’ browsing activities, in order to constantly improve the PATH website and better serve customers. This information assists PATH to design and arrange our web pages in the most user-friendly manner and to continually improve our website to better meet the needs of customers and prospective customers.
Cookies help collect important business and technical statistics. The information in the cookies lets PATH trace the paths followed by users to the PATH website as they move from one page to another. Web server logs allow PATH to count how many people visit the website and evaluate the PATH website visitor capacity. PATH does not use these technologies to capture your individual email address or any personally identifying information about you.
Occasionally, PATH may use the information collected to notify you about important changes to the website, new services and special offers. As a consumer, you will be given the opportunity to notify PATH of your desire not to receive these offers by clicking on a response box when you receive such an offer or by sending an email request.
When you send confidential personal credit card information to PATH on the website, a licensed, secure server software encrypts all information you input before it is sent. The information is scrambled en route and decoded once it reaches our Web site.
Other email that you may send to PATH may not be secure unless you are advised that a security measures will be in place prior to your transmitting the information. For that reason, PATH asks that you do not send confidential information such as social security or account numbers to us through an unsecured email.
Information Security. PATH utilizes encryption/security software to safeguard the confidentiality of personal information we collect from unauthorized access or disclosure and accidental loss, alteration or destruction.
Periodically, PATH operations and business practices are reviewed for compliance with policies and procedures governing the security, confidentiality and quality of agency information.
Employee Access, Training and Expectations.
PATH values, ethical standards, policies and practices are committed to the protection of customer information. In general, our business practices limit employee access to confidential information, and limit the use and disclosure of such information to authorized persons, processes and transactions.
You may request access to all your personally identifiable information that PATH collected online and maintains in our database by emailing PATH using the contact information at the bottom of this page.
PATH may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when our agency, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights.
