Please read through the following pages, which describe the type of information we may collect, how we may use information, and our commitment to maintaining the privacy and security of information. Please be advised that PMA may not control all Consumer Platforms used by our customers. This means that PMA may not manage all data collection, use, or disclosure activities which could occur on platforms owned or administered by a Service Provider. Service Provider means any vendor that has been contracted by PMA to provide a service or perform a function on behalf, or for the benefit, of PMA, including but not limited to technical support, site administration, or data analytics.
How you use a particular PMA Consumer Platform will determine whether or not we collect Personal Information from you, and how much we collect. In many situations, we may not require any Personal Information, nor will we ask questions about you, but for other situations, we need to verify your identity through a login process or collect sufficient Personal Information to provide a service associated with your use of a Consumer Platform.
PMA may permit Users to contact us using secure messaging or feedback/inquiry forms available on our corporate-owned platforms regarding account questions or concerns, or PMA’s products or services. We may disclose Personal Information to contracted Service Providers to allow them to perform a service or function for which they have been engaged. The information provided through secure messages and feedback/inquiry forms may be used by PMA or its contracted Service Providers to review and respond to Users’ communications.
Please be advised that PMA’s Consumer Platforms are intended for general audience Users. Our Consumer Platforms are not directed at children under the age of 13, nor do we make attempts to collect, use, or disclose information from children under the age of 13.
A cookie is a piece of information about an internet session that may be created when an individual accesses a website. Cookies can capture information such as your IP address, your internet browser and operating system type, the date and time you visit a website, session information such as page response times, your search history, your saved preferences and password information (if you elect to have a website remember this information), information about the referring URL (uniform resource locator) and the URL clickstream to, through, and from our Consumer Platforms, and other similar details.
PMA does not sell Personal Information of Users collected through our Consumer Platforms to anyone. All information submitted to us may be retained to provide a record of communications and to comply with any applicable legal and/or regulatory requirements, and may also be verified for accuracy.
Personal Information may be anonymized by PMA (i.e. stripped of individual identifiers), aggregated with other data, and used for general research, classification, marketing, or other purposes without permission.
We may disclose Personal Information to our contracted Service Providers to allow them to perform the function for which they have been engaged, such as website hosting, payment processing, account administration, or other services.
Certain PMA workforce members may be provided with Personal Information of Users in order to respond to their needs, assist with customer service and related account issues, and provide requested information regarding specific products or services. PMA workforce members are required by written confidentiality agreements, corporate policies and state or federal laws or regulations, to maintain the confidentiality of Personal Information, and to use strict standards of care in handling information. Workforce members who do not conform to these confidentiality requirements are subject to disciplinary action.
Other than as set forth herein, PMA does not transmit any Personal Information collected through its Consumer Platforms to any third party without the permission of the User. However, Personal Information may be transmitted if there is a specific need to complete a transaction requested by the user or if necessary for providing a service or benefit to the User.
Please be aware that there may be online resources that fraudulently use PMA logos, name, or other aspects of our brand. These resources may attempt to collect Personal Information over the internet, via spam email, or through phishing.
These online resources have not been authorized by PMA to interact with our customers, and PMA is in no way affiliated with these fraudulent resources. If you suspect that a certain online resource may not be legitimate, you should avoid providing any Personal Information.
Consistent with the requirements set forth under certain state and federal laws, PMA grants access to Personal Information only to those workforce members and contracted Service Providers as necessary to provide appropriate services, or as Users authorize. All such workforce members and contracted Service Providers are subject to confidentiality statements, privacy policies, and/or other contractual obligations at least, or no less, restrictive as the standards followed by PMA.
