The USPCA respects the privacy of its members and visitors
to the USPCA Web site. The USPCA does not collect any information
through the Web site without the knowledge of the member or
visitor. The USPCA's Web server automatically recognizes only
the visitor's domain name, not the specific user name of the
visitor. The USPCA does not collect any information via cookies
or other tracking means of a personal nature from visitors.
All personal information collected through the Web site is
provided on a voluntary basis by USPCA Web site visitors through
a visible means of data entry or collection.
One of the main objectives of The USPCA's Web site, however,
is to encourage networking and participation in interactive
events by USPCA members and site visitors. To support this
networking and interaction, The USPCA may require that visitors
provide information to access certain areas of its Web site.
This information may include name, email and postal addresses,
phone numbers, and other demographic information. Areas of
our Web site requiring this information generally include
any interactive area, such as forum and chat discussions,
surveys, on-site registrations and applications. Visitors
provide this information on a voluntary basis to gain access
to these areas. The USPCA may also collect aggregate information
on which pages visitors access as they use our site as well
as the email addresses with visitors who correspond with us
directly from the Web site.
Information about members collected through the Membership
Application will be stored in the general USPCA membership
database. USPCA may use email or postal addresses for notifying
members and customers about upcoming events, new additions
to the USPCA Web site, or other products and services offered
by the USPCA.
The USPCA does not provide any of the email addresses, postal
addresses, phone numbers, or other personally identifiable
information that it collects on its Web site to any other
individual or organization for any purpose, including commercial.
The USPCA uses the information we collect to improve the content
of our Web site; to enhance existing products, services, and
member benefits; and to plan for new products, services, and
If you provide your telephone or fax number on the Web site,
the USPCA may contact you via telephone regarding any questions
they may have about a product or service order (including
membership applications, conference registrations, or other
product orders). Therefore, it is important that you provide
us with your correct phone number to serve you more promptly.
The USPCA will use the aggregate data we collect to perform
statistical analysis of the collective characteristics and
behavior of our members and visitors, to measure overall customer
demographics, and to analyze how and where to use our resources.
In our exchange boards, we do collect all logins and dialogue.
Dialogue may be archived for later retrieval by the USPCA
members. Personal information, personal references, and obvious
grammatical errors may be removed from the transcripts before
they are archived.
The USPCA, however, cannot control the acts of its members
who use the exchange board. If personal information, such
as name, email addresses, mailing addresses, and phone numbers,
are provided through these modules, they may conceivably be
used by others for unsolicited e-mail or other contact.
