None of a user's personal financial information (such as a credit card number and expiration date) is ever distributed, sold or rented to any party for secondary purposes.

Does PTI monitor e-mails or other communications?
We do not monitor in advance user's communications, e-mails or other content distributed through the Internet. By using our service you acknowledge that PTI is unlikely to be aware of violations of law or other misconduct occurring over the Internet. As a user of our service, you bear full responsibility for the material received and sent via e-mail. We may have the capability to review these communications while in use and be required to disclose personal or other information when required by law, court order, governmental agency or law enforcement authority.

Does PTI use any filtering software?
Does PTI allow users under the age of 18?
No. We believe that it is especially important to protect minor's privacy on line and encourages parents and guardians to spend time online with their children to participate and monitor their Internet activity. If you are under 18, we recommend that you get your parent's permission before disclosing any information about yourself. PTI will not knowingly allow anyone under the age of 18 without the written permission from a parent or guardian. The parent of a child under 18 can review and have deleted their child's account.
Newsletters and Subscriber communications e-mails
We may from time to time send e-mails to our Subscribers regarding our services. Also, we plan to develop a periodic electronic newsletter that we will send to all of our interested Subscribers. Out of respect for the privacy of our Subscribers, the receipt of such communications is handled on an op-in basis. Subscribers are given the opportunity to 'opt-in' to receiving these types of communications on our Web sites.
Our Web sites take every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the Website, the information is protected both online and off-line. Because PTI uses some of the most sophisticated commercially available security software, it is extremely unlikely that any personal information that you transmit to us will be misappropriated. When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the some of the best encryption software in the industry - Verisign 56bit and 128 Bit encryption. While we use this encryption software to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees and consultants who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Additionally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment, along with other proprietary information at our data center. Only authorized personnel are physically allowed into the data center or access to the internal proprietary information. Subscribers should not share their password or access code with others or place that information where other may gain access. You are responsible for making sure that this information is kept confidential.
PLEASE NOTE: Internet data transmission is not always 100% secure and we cannot warrant that information you transmit utilizing PTI's services is always 100% secure. Because security is important to PTI and our users, PTI pledges to take all reasonable measures to ensure the security of our services and system.
