PARCEL uses proprietary technologies to preserve the anonymity of members while matching the member's interests with targeted information sent via email.

PARCEL will not knowingly reveal any member's identity to marketers. It is solely at a PARCEL Member's discretion if he or she chooses to provide personally identifiable information to a marketer by making a purchase, requesting additional information, or communicating directly with the company or organization after visiting its website or otherwise.

Limits of Confidentiality

As part of its day-to-day business activities, PARCEL must disclose certain aggregate level information about PARCEL Members to certain third parties; principally, (1) PARCEL Network Partners, and (2) Marketers who use parcelindustry.com's network. Below is the information and circumstances under which PARCEL may be required to disclose information to third parties.

(1) Network Partners: When a PARCEL Member registers through the website of a Network Partner, PARCEL is obligated to disclose to that particular Network Partner the information submitted by the PARCEL Member during the registration process. In addition to the foregoing information, PARCEL may also disclose aggregate level information to the Network Partner about PARCEL Members who registered through that particular Network Partner's site. Such aggregate information may include, for example, the number of individuals who registered through the Network Partner's site; the turnover rate of PARCEL Members who have registered through the Network Partner's site; with respect to any particular campaign, the response rates of the PARCEL Members who registered through the Network Partner's site; and statistics on the interest categories selected by the PARCEL Members who have registered through the Network Partner's site. Subject to the exceptions discussed below, PARCEL will not knowingly disclose any personally identifiable information about a PARCEL Member to a Network Partner unless such personally identifiable information was provided during the registration process through the Network Partner's website.

(2) Marketers: PARCEL will disclose aggregate level information about PARCEL Members to marketers as reasonably necessary to explain the services that PARCEL can offer, to report on the advertising campaigns that PARCEL undertakes for any particular marketer, and/or to implement and explain campaign strategies. Subject to the exceptions discussed below, PARCEL will not knowingly disclose any personally identifiable information about a PARCEL Member to a marketer. Due to the existing legal, regulatory and security environment, PARCEL may be required, under certain circumstances, to disclose aggregate level and/or personally identifiable information about its members. PARCEL will use its best efforts to limit such disclosure to the following: where PARCEL believes in good faith that it is required to do so in response to a subpoena or other legal process; where reasonably required to do so in order to maintain, update or otherwise implement parcelindustry.com's data security measures, equipment, technical operations and the like; or where reasonably necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against persons or entities to preserve and/or enforce parcelindustry.com's rights.
 
Use of Information


PARCEL uses member information to deliver PARCEL services. Thus, member information is used by PARCEL in identifying information that may be of interest to its members. A member's email address will be used by PARCEL to contact that member about member-selected interests. PARCEL does not use member information for purposes unrelated to the services offered by the parcel industry.

Protection of Member Information

PARCEL undertakes substantial efforts to protect the confidentiality of the identity, preferences and other information it has collected about individual members and will never knowingly allow access to this information to anyone outside PARCEL other than to the member or as described above under the heading Limits of Confidentiality.

PARCEL has made a substantial investment in its server, database, backup and firewall technologies to protect the information assets of the PARCEL, including the confidentiality of information collected about PARCEL Members. These technologies are deployed as part of a sophisticated security architecture and protocol. You should also do your part in protecting your information. Your PARCEL user name and password are confidential and we recommend that you not divulge them to anyone. Unfortunately, neither PARCEL network nor data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect member information, PARCEL cannot ensure or warrant the security of member information. Thus, any information a member transmits to us is done so at the member's own risk. Once we receive member information, PARCEL undertakes substantial efforts to protect the confidentiality of this information consistent with this Policy.

Policy Changes

The foregoing policy is effective as of August 2006. PARCEL reserves the right to change this policy at any time. Please check this page periodically for changes.

PARCEL will take reasonable measures to notify you if there is a material change in our privacy practices with respect to use of the information you have provided to PARCEL. PARCEL will conspicuously post these changes in our Privacy Policy. PARCEL also will post a message on the home page of its website that states that the Privacy Policy has been changed, and will provide a link to the Privacy Policy. These postings will occur on parcelindustry.com's website at least 30 days prior to any material change. For more information, see our Terms and Conditions of service.
