PPT, and our affiliates (collectively, “PPT”) knows that you care how your personal information is used and shared and appreciates your trust that PPT will do so wisely. This Policy describes how PPT may manage, collect, use, and share your information in association with our website (www.privatepracticetransitions.com) and any of our other websites, mobile applications, social media platforms, emails, and other online or digital applications or media (collectively, “Digital Media”). This Policy covers: (1) the types of information we may collect; (2) how we may use collected information; (3) how we may share the collected information; (4) our practices for protecting collected information; (5) your options and rights with respect to collected information; (6) our contact information; and (7) updates to this Policy.
The Types of Information We May Collect
“Personal information” means any information that can be used to identify you or that we can reasonably attribute to you, including your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, social security number, employment information, and other personally identifying information. We may automatically or manually request, collect and store certain information, including personal information, when you use, access, or interact with our Digital Media. We also may collect and store data in a form that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual, including your preferred language, non-specific location data, and search data (“non-personal information”).
When you use our Digital Media, you may be asked to voluntarily provide information, including personal information. We collect and store information that you provide to us, including when you communicate with us via email, when you request newsletters or other materials, when you submit an application for a job with us, when you sign up for an event, when you respond to our communications, or when you request other information. In addition, as a client of PPT, we may request information, through Digital Media or otherwise, in order for PPT to perform services on your behalf.
Like many websites, we may use browser cookies, log files, web beacons, pixel tags, and similar technologies (collectively, “Cookies”) to automatically collect and store information, including personal information, when you use, access, or interact with our Digital Media. For example, we may collect information about the device you use to access our Digital Media, your operating system and browser, your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, your general location as indicated by your IP address, your interaction with our Digital Media, the web sites you visit just before and after you access our Digital Media, and search terms you use on our Digital Media. We may use a “click-through URL” linked to content on our Digital Media in some of our emails and track data related to this click-through link. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages. We also may track when our emails have been opened and read. We offer recipients of our email the option to decline these communications at no cost to you.
We do not respond to web browser “do not track” signals or similar mechanisms that request an opt out from the collection of information across networks, websites, or online services.
We may receive supplemental information about you from other persons or sources, including from third parties that conduct surveys, help us update and analyze our records, identify and interact with new customers, or prevent or detect fraud or illegal acts. We also may receive information about you from social media platforms, including when you interact with us on those platforms or access our social media content. The information we may receive in this manner, including from social media platforms, is governed by the privacy policies of those third-party entities, and we recommend contacting those entities to review their policies if you want more information.
When you access our Digital Media via a mobile device, we may collect precise location information, if you permit the Digital Media to access such information, or other information related to the mobile application.
Our Digital Media may include content or links to content provided by third parties, which we do not control. We also engage third parties to support the operation of our Digital Media. These third parties may use technologies to track your online activities over time and across different websites and online platforms. This Policy does not address the privacy, security, or other practices of third parties that provide such content or services. PPT does not endorse or make any representations about third-party websites or content, and we encourage you to review the policies of these third parties prior to providing them with any personal information.
The Site does not sell services or products intended for purchase by minors. If you are under 18, you may use our Digital Media only with the involvement and consent of a parent or guardian. We do not intend to or knowingly collect personal information from minors/children under the age of 13.
How We May Use Collected Information
We may use the information we collect from you, including personal information: (1) to provide you with services; (2) to respond to your requests or inquiries; (3) to maintain, expand or update client or supplier lists; (4) to send you communications, including newsletters, updates, marketing materials, and other information; (5) to operate, administer or improve our Digital Media, including understanding its use and user behavior; (6) to recruit, evaluate, hire, or retain employees or independent contractors; (7) to evaluate the effectiveness of our marketing; (8) for PPT’s business purposes, including improving services and marketing and advertising; (9) for compliance with legal and contractual obligations and to respond to government requests; (10) to protect your, PPT’s, or others’ interests and rights; (11) with your consent; or (12) as otherwise described in this Policy. Further, we may collect, use, transfer or disclose non-personal information for any purpose.
How We May Share Collected Information
PPT may share information internally and across offices for its business purposes and the other purposes described in this Policy.
PPT may share information, including personal information, with third parties and their services (including without limitation, Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager, Google Search Console, AdWords, AdRoll, Facebook and LinkedIn) to conduct our business or to provide or improve our products or services, including to deliver services to you at your request or to help PPT market or advertise to clients and potential clients. Personal information will never be shared with third parties for their independent, direct marketing purposes. PPT also may determine it is necessary or appropriate, under law, litigation, subpoena, request from a governmental authority, or otherwise, for PPT to disclose your information, including personal information, to third parties. We also may disclose information about you, but only as permitted under applicable law, if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce your, PPT’s, or others’ interests and rights. Additionally, in the event of a potential or completed reorganization, merger, or sale of PPT, we may transfer any and all information we collect to relevant third parties.
Protection of Collected Information
PPT takes the security and protection of your information seriously. We implement reasonable digital and physical safeguards designed to comply with applicable law and to protect information that we collect from unintended or unauthorized disclosure. This may include, when applicable and reasonable, storing data in locations with physical security measures, using software, encryption and other digital measures to secure data, and obtaining assurances from third parties that may have access to your information. We retain the information we collect as necessary for our business purposes, to achieve the purposes for which we collect the information, and to comply with applicable law. Despite these measures, no information or digital system is completely secure, so we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your information. Further, we are not responsible for the security of information you transmit to us over networks that we do not control, including the Internet or wireless networks.
The Digital Media are controlled and operated by PPT or its service providers from the United States. We may transfer or store the information we collect in the United States to or in other countries where we or our service providers have facilities, which may not be your country of residence. These countries may have data privacy and protection laws and regulations that differ from those in your country.
Your Options and Rights with Respect to Collected Information
If you no longer wish to receive marketing communications from us, you can let us know by sending us an email to [email protected] or contacting us via our Contact Us page. In addition, any e-mails we may send you may contain opt-out mechanisms that allow you to opt-out of further communications.
Subject to applicable law, you may have certain rights regarding your information that we have collected, including rights to obtain confirmation regarding whether PPT has your personal information, to request access to and receive information about your personal information including who we have shared it with, to receive copies of your personal information, to update and correct inaccuracies in your personal information, to object to the use or disclosure of your personal information, and to have your personal information blocked, anonymized, or deleted, as appropriate. The right to access your personal information may be limited in some circumstances by local law. We encourage you to update or correct your personal information if it changes or if you believe that any information that we have collected about you is inaccurate. You also can ask us to view your personal information, ask us to delete your personal information, and object to our use of your personal information. In some jurisdictions, you may have a right to complain to local authorities regarding the use of your personal information.
If you would like to discuss or exercise the rights you may have, please send us an email to [email protected] or contact us via our Contact Us page. Such requests will be addressed subject to applicable laws. Although PPT will make reasonable, good faith efforts to provide individuals with access to their personal information, there may be circumstances in which PPT is unable to provide access, including where disclosure would compromise others’ privacy or other legitimate rights, the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the individual’s privacy in the case in question, or where the information is commercially proprietary. If PPT determines that access should be restricted in any particular instance, we will endeavor to provide you with an explanation of why that determination has been made and a contact point for any further inquiries. To protect your privacy, PPT will take commercially reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access to or making any changes to your personal information.
