PRIVACY POLICY

Your privacy is important to us. It is Planned Companies’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect from you across our website, https://www.plannedcompanies.com, and other sites we own and operate.

Your use of our website is also governed by our Terms of Service, available at https://www.plannedcompanies.com/terms-of-service/.

Information We Collect

LOG DATA

When you visit our website, our servers may automatically log the standard data provided by your web browser. This data is considered “non-identifying information”, as it does not personally identify you on its own. It may include your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, your browser type and version, the pages you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on each page, and other details.

 

PERSONAL INFORMATION

We may ask for personal information, such as your name and email address. This data is considered “identifying information”, as it can personally identify you. We only request personal information relevant to providing you with a service, and only use it to help provide or improve this service.

 

HOW WE COLLECT INFORMATION

We collect information by fair and lawful means, with your knowledge and consent. We also let you know why we’re collecting it and how it will be used. You are free to refuse our request for this information, with the understanding that we may be unable to provide you with some of your desired services without it.

 

Use Of Information

We may use a combination of identifying and non-identifying information to understand who our visitors are, how they use our services, and how we may improve their experience of our website in the future. We do not disclose the specifics of this information publicly, but may share aggregated and anonymized versions of this information, for example, in website and customer usage trend reports.

 

Security

Although we may provide certain encryption technologies and use other reasonable precautions to protect your personal information and provide suitable security, we do not and cannot guarantee or warrant that any information transmitted through the Internet is secure, or that such transmissions are free from delay, interruption, interception or error.

The federal government and technology industry have developed practical tips (available at www.onguardonline.gov/) to help you guard against Internet fraud, secure your computer and protect your personal information.

Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for the “Verified and Secured” badge located in the website’s footer, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.

 

Data Processing And Storage

We only retain personal information for as long as necessary to provide a service, or to improve our services in the future. While we retain this data, we will protect it within commercially acceptable means to prevent loss and theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification. That said, we advise that no method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure, and we cannot guarantee absolute data security.

You expressly agree and consent to the use and/or transfer of the foregoing information in connection with any of the above described proceedings. We cannot and will not be responsible for any breach of security by any third parties or for any actions of any third parties that receive any of the information that is disclosed to us.
