PRIVACY STATEMENT

Summary

Performance Review Institute (“PRI”) knows that you care about how your personal information is collected and used, and we appreciate your trust in our commitment to do so carefully and thoughtfully. This document describes what personally identifiable information we collect, how we collect and use it, and the procedures we have in place to protect that information.

This Policy applies to the www.p-r-i.org and eauditnet.com websites (“PRI websites”). It does not apply to websites operated by organizations or groups who associate themselves with PRI. It does not apply to any other Internet websites, including those that have hypertext links to or from the PRI websites listed above.

PRI may revise this Policy at any time, and will post the Policy on this web page, including the date, above, of the most recent update. By using the PRI websites, you are accepting the practices described in this Policy.

What Personal Information Is Collected, and How Is It Used?

When you visit PRI websites, we collect information about you and your visit, to help us personalize and improve your experience at the site and with other PRI services. Specifically, we collect:

  • Information you voluntarily provide: When you complete any type of registration form, or complete various other online forms, for purposes such as logging in to the website, participating in industry-managed programs, and more, we receive and store that information. Typically, these voluntary forms include information such as your name, website user ID and password, address information, work information, phone and fax numbers, and email addresses. Other information may be gathered, depending on the form you are completing. Information you provide in online forms is often the same as or similar to information you would provide in traditional printed forms.

We use this information to customize your website experience, respond to your requests and needs, register you for events, deliver you products and services, and inform you of products, services, and events that may be of interest to you. We also use this information to control access to various restricted areas of the website.

  • Information you involuntarily provide: As you interact with our websites, our server logs information about your visit. This information includes things like the website address you came from, the browser you are using, your numeric internet address, the date and time of your visit, and what pages you are viewing. Collection of these types of information is a common practice by websites.

We use this information to learn about our visitors as a group, not about you as an individual. This information helps us identify overall usage patterns and trends on the websites, and can specifically help us, among other things:

  • Identify how much traffic various areas of the websites receive.
  • Determine when we should schedule site maintenance.
  • Identify which other websites send visitors to our site.
  • Determine demographic profiles of our visitors.
  • Optimize the site for common browsers used at the site.
  • Track results of promotional campaigns.
  • Provide reports to third parties who maintain a presence on our site.

It is possible to browse websites, including PRI websites, anonymously; you have the option of doing so, but doing so may also make it more difficult for the PRI websites to best meet your needs.

  • Information you provide through online forums and in email: In addition to collecting the information noted above, the PRI websites provide visitors the opportunity to send email to PRI and other third parties who participate in industry-managed programs, and to participate in online discussion forums.

When you send us an email and request a response, we use the email address and other information you provide to respond to your inquiry. We may also log the nature and content of email requests we receive, which helps us analyze visitor interests overall and identify areas for improvement on the site.

PRI’s online discussion forums are provided as a means of communication and collaboration for PRI’s customers. Some forums are public, to which any registered website visitor may have access; some forums are private and thus require additional privileges to participate. Postings you make to an online forum may be visible to other participants in that forum. If you participate in an online private team, your teammates may have access to portions of your contact information. If you participate in activities in our public forums, others may have access to information about you that you voluntarily provide.

Security

PRI protects the security of your sensitive personal information when you exchange that information with PRI websites. PRI uses industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology when exchanging this information, which encrypts the information during transit. PRI also maintains firewall and other managed software, as well as physical and procedural safeguards, to protect systematically stored data.

It is important that you protect your eauditnet.com user ID and password. If you are logged in to the eauditnet.com site from a shared computer, be sure to log out when you are finished with a visit; a logout button can be found on nearly every page of our site.

HTTP Cookies

PRI websites use HTTP cookies, which are small text files stored on your computer and used to identify your web browser. Cookies are used on PRI websites to provide a more personalized experience, process transactions, maintain customer records, facilitate targeted marketing, and obtain statistics and other analytics regarding website usage. Some PRI cookies are used to save you time by remembering your login and maintaining your session. Other PRI cookies are used for personalizing your visit and allowing you access to customized customer benefits and online forums. Cookies help the PRI servers identify who you are and your relationship with PRI, enabling us to provide you with appropriate access to various areas of the site.

Most Internet browsers allow you to accept, block, or delete cookies as you see fit. You can consult the “Help” and other menu items of your particular browser to learn different ways to manage your cookies. Because certain PRI website functions rely on cookies, the way you manage your cookies may impact your browsing experience or, in some cases, limit what the PRI websites can do for you. Depending on how you manage cookies, you may not be able to take advantage of personalization of the site, online forums, or other site features and services.

PRI websites use both session and persistent cookies. Session cookies are stored in your browser’s memory and disappear when you shut down your browser or have no activity at a site for a defined period of time. Persistent cookies get written to your computer’s long term memory and thus can stay on your computer to identify you for an extended period of time.

Once you have closed your browser, we do not use the information these cookies collect. You can use this website while prohibiting cookies, if you prefer.

Choice, Opt-out, and Control

You maintain control of the personally identifiable information that PRI websites collect and maintain about you. eauditnet.com provides means, through the “Edit Profile” pages and/or its eAuditNet Support Helpdesk staff, for you to correct, update, and delete/deactivate your personally identifiable information and preferences. We also provide through those same means the opportunity for you to “opt-out” of receiving communications from PRI, or from having your personally identifiable information used for marketing purposes.

Children

PRI does not knowingly collect information about children under age 13 through its website. PRI will not contact children under age 13 for marketing purposes, nor will PRI knowingly exchange with any third party information it stores about children under age 13.

Third Party Relationships

We share aggregate demographic information with our business partners. This data is not linked to any personally identifiable information.

We also provide lists containing personally identifiable information to trusted, reputable third parties which we believe have products or services that may be of interest to you. PRI does not sell your email address to any parties that systematically collect email addresses for marketing purposes unrelated to PRI business. We partner with third parties to provide specific services, such as online conferencing. For you to successfully participate in these services, we share with the third party only that information which is necessary for the purpose of providing said services.

The PRI websites may contain links to, and graphics from, third-party websites and/or content providers. This Policy does not extend to those parties, nor is PRI responsible for the content linked to or provided.

PRI may be required to provide information about its customers or prospective customers to law enforcement or government agencies if requested or necessary.
