I. Information collection and use
In connection with the use of the Services, we may collect certain personal and non-personal information from you. We may use this information to fulfill your requests; improve and manage the Services; personalize your experience on the Site; contact you; offer you products and services that may be of interest to you; and in connection with the various features of the Site that may permit you to input, post or provide information. We collect personal and non-personal information when you voluntarily provide it to us (for example, in the course of registration or subscription for articles, newsletters, promotions, alerts and reminders) and when you visit the Site. The information we collect from you depends on your use of the Site.
Depending on how you use the Site, we may collect certain personal and non-personal information from you in the following ways:
Registration: You may be required to register to use all of or certain of the Services from time-to-time. The registration process will ask you to provide certain personal and non-personal information from you that allows us to customize your experience as well as provide you access to certain premium content and Services. This information may also be used by PSPN in its membership initiatives and marketing activities. Such personal information may include (but is not limited to) your name, e-mail address, age group, topic and content interests, demographics, contact information, credit card or other payment information and other similar information.
Subscription: When you register you agree to receive email alerts, articles, recurring informational newsletters, promotions and other information related to the Site and PSPN.

II. Information disclosure to third parties
We know how important it is to keep the personal information you’ve entrusted to us confidential. We will not rent, sell or share personal information about you with third parties except under certain circumstances as described herein. In all other cases, we will ask for your permission before we disclose your personal information.
Affiliates and Partners: We may share the information you provide with companies and websites affiliated with PSPN and partners of PSPN.
Disclosure for legal reasons: We may release personal information to third parties: (1) to comply with valid legal requirements such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order; or (2) in special cases, such as a physical threat to you or others, a security threat, a threat to our system or network, or cases in which we believe it is reasonably necessary to investigate or prevent harm, fraud, abuse, or illegal conduct. In the event that we are legally compelled to disclose your personal information to a third party, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you unless doing so would violate the law or court order.
Agents and contractors: Contractors sometimes have access to your personal information in the course of assisting in operating our business and providing products or services to you. These contractors include vendors and suppliers that provide us with technology, services, and/or content for the operation and maintenance of our site.
Aggregated, non-personal information: We may share aggregated information with third parties. This is information that is combined with the non-personal information of other users and does not allow you to be identified or contacted. Depending on the circumstances, we may or may not charge third parties for this aggregated information. We also may not limit the third parties’ use of the aggregated information.
Changes in our corporate structure: If responsibility for the conduct of the site is transferred by PSPN or PSPN is party to any restructuring transaction, whether by merger, liquidation or otherwise, the personal information you have provided at this site may be transferred as part of that transaction.
