Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: http://pbdd.org.

We collect no information about you when you visit this site except whatever you choose to send, for example through web-based forms or email, and some portion of whatever your web browser automatically sends to websites you visit.

The information we do automatically collect and store includes the following:

  • the Internet Protocol (IP) address from which you access the Internet (e.g., 192.255.238.66), whether your own or provided as a proxy by your Internet Service Provider (ISP),
  • the date and time you access our site,
  • the pages you visit (recorded by the text and other files that compose that page),
  • the URL of the webpage (if any) from which you linked directly to our site,
  • the total number of packets and bytes you exchange with our site, categorized by protocol header information.

If your web browser includes additional unsolicited information with its requests, some of that may be logged by our servers, even if we have no use for it.

We use summary statistics of the above information to help us make our site more useful to visitors, such as by assessing what information is of most and least interest to visitors, and for other purposes such as determining the site’s technical design specifications and identifying system performance or problem areas.

This information is not shared with anyone for any commercial purpose whatsoever. It is used as a source of anonymous statistical information and to diagnose network problems and intrusion attempts.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Email

Email you send us may be forwarded as needed in order to make the best possible response. Also, you should be aware that email to some destination addresses may be archived, possibly in a way visible to the public. Unless you have reliable information to the contrary, you should never assume that email you send is confidential or ephemeral.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

What rights you have over your data

If you have left comments on this site, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
