What information do we collect?

Our web server automatically recognizes each visitor’s domain name but does not automatically collect personally identifiable information.

We collect the IP addresses of visitors, time of access, browser type, and webpages visited. We collect this information on an aggregate basis only. For example, we track which pages are most popular among visitors as a whole.

When you apply for services, contact us, donate, or sign up for our email lists we will collect specific personal contact information including email, address or phone. We collect and maintain personal information that is specifically and knowledgeably provided to us by individuals or their companies. If you choose to provide personally identifiable data, you may receive future information from us — by mail, electronically or by telephone — advising you of upcoming events, services or volunteer and support opportunities.

If you do not wish to be contacted by one or more of these methods, please opt out using the link provided in every email message or contact us, and let us know which methods are not acceptable.

PLS makes every effort to ensure the secure collection and transmission of sensitive user information using industry accepted data collection and encryption methodologies such as SSL (Secure Sockets Layer).
